OOTD: All The Denim In The World

I'm back! Today I have the photographs of all the kind and lovely girls who took part in my "Dress Up Your Denim" challenge. It made me very happy to receive pictures and links to everyone's effort. Some even went on to do more than one denim outfit and I sincerely thank you for it from the bottom of my heart. I love you all and I think every single outfit is amazing and I couldn't help thinking how sweet, how gorgeous everyone look. I hope everyone had fun participating in my first challenge :) and sorry if you think I butchered your pictures a little to fit into my polaroid frame!

For this challenge, I used the switch of a single accessory to make changes to my original outfit of off-shoulder top, Stitch Pleat Panel Peg Leg Jeans (also seen here) and flats. Not only does it create different looks, it is cost-saving. And that is just with ONE accessory change, imagine if you had more accessories to play with! My favourite of the challenge was to use this sequin scarf to somehow create a lopsided effect around my top, making it into some sort of a temporary half sequin top! I really like the effect!

Off Shoulder Top: Monsoon
Stitch Pleat Panel Peg Leg Jeans: ASOS Curve
Strands of Pearls Necklace: Accessorize
Sequin Scarf: Zara
Crochet Flowers Necklace: Bangkok Designer
Flats: Melissa

I wish I had known about this before the deadline. What a great idea! Have you considered doing different challenges? It'd be cool to see people style the same dress in different ways or something like that.

Also, I need that flower skirt (over the romper) in my life. Lovely!

Dee, I love you! Thanks so much for getting this challenge together. It was fun! I never usually dress up my jeans, so this was definitely something I had to think about :) (even though my look was so simple!) I love your accessories. You've got tons of really versatile pieces!

Merry traveller: Love you sequin top!
Katrin: Lace, ripped denim bermuda and booties? TOTALLY GORGEOUS!
Nefferth: I could wear it from head-to-toe, totally my style!
MD: The blazer, t-shirt and jeans are always a win-win outfit, I recognize those TOMS shoes, got the same ones. Aren't they perfect to enhance any casual outfit?
Laura: The composition of this outfit is just perfect!!
Jennifer: The whole outfit is really cool for an afternoon in a coffeshop! Leather, animal print and grey mix t-shirt is just perfect and sexy. I would have complete it with a red lipstick, just to bring out the fierce in the outfit!
Claire, Nnenna, Rebecca and rosemay:Lovely!!!!!
Sawsan:J'ai le même top en khaki et je l'adore! Pour le outfit,je n'aurais pas fait mieux!Super

Fun post! I liked seeing all these denim duds! I rarely (ever) wear jeans, so it's great to see how these other ladies style them. (Love you necklace and the colors, too!)

Ugh! I totally ran out of time to do this! So sad. Maybe you'll do another challenge again soon? I hope so.

Everyone looks great and did a wonderful job of styling their denim. My favorite is Sawsan's look. I love the rolled-up look with a blazer!
