Hi everyone, hope everyone is fine and doing well.

There are a few  items of clothing in my wardrobe that are quite old but somehow I can't bring myself to throw them out.  Not that they hold any sentimental value, but each time I think it's time for this or that piece to go, the wheel of fashion resurrects them back to life.
Case in point, my skinny jeans made of oilskin fabric aka as wet or Harper.   They were hot about five years ago when I purchased them but as popular now as when I originally bought them.

"Call me vain but it gives me the pleasure to know that they still fit"

There are many ways you can wear your skinny jeans.  they are hugely adaptable, comfortable to wear and could be very flattering if the style and fit are right.  You can wear them at any time of the day, casual or smart, rock or chic, depending on what you are pairing them with and what accessories you choose for the outfit.

My husband and I were going for a lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the highly popular restaurant called "China Doll" situated on a stretch of the refurbished Cooper Street Wharf  colloquially known as The Sidney's Finger Wharf.  Although the restaurant has won multiple awards for cooking the most delicious modern Asian food, the vibe is light and casual and no particular dress code is required.
With that in mind, I decided that my skinny jeans will be perfect for the occasion. You probably have seen me wearing them before but mainly casually.
This time, however, I decided to dress them up a bit.  If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know how much I love wearing high heel shoes when going out and my view about the importance of right footwear when constructing your outfit.  True to myself, I'd chosen a pair of black classic high heels pumps by Christian Dior.  These shoes are one of the items I was telling you about earlier, they are quite old but who can throw away a perfect pair of Christian Dior shoes?
The top I am wearing is also one of the oldies that I bought in NY many years ago but since it is hard to pin down what era its belong to, it technically never goes out of style and thus is a keeper.
In fact, the only item that was new in my outfit is a handbag,  an anniversary gift from my husband and since I was getting dressed for lunch to celebrate it, this bag from Furla was an obvious choice.

It was such a warm and lovely day for winter that we were able to stay outside long enough to take some photos of me for the blog .

BTW, as expected, the lunch was sublime.

Till the next post
