 Once upon a time, piercings were a sign of rebellion and anarchy, now multiple holes are de rigeur. And yet I myself seem to have less than ever… A nose ring and five earrings has now reduced to two lowly ear holes after accidentally letting them all close up. Yep, as I entered my late twenties my body seemed to sense it’s impending middle-age and started rejecting metalwork like the plague. Try as might to put new holes in myself (just my ears I hasten to add), my body has other ideas and after weeks of painful, inflamed soreness I eventually admit defeat and take them out.

Thankfully JW Anderson has given us a new place to pierce ourselves and it’s 100% pain free, requires zero anaesthetic and won’t leave a mark akin to a black head. Anderson’s new nose ring bags are the wimp’s solution to piercings; needless to say I had to have one immediately. As you guys can probably tell from this blog, bags and shoes are the only things I really drop proper cash on, but it’s only so often one comes along that really persuades me. The prim shape and short handle juxtaposed with the hardcore hardware had me at hello. I feel like its the perfect marriage of opposites for those of us bridging being a full-on grown up and still wanting to keep one foot in that intoxicating sense of teenage rebellion.

So before we all head back to Thailand with a bucket in hand, or get a moon tattooed on our wrist (both still valid options in my mind however), let’s stick to piercings of the wearable kind. It’s like a clip-on earring, only cool.

    I love seeing different piercings on other people but, have never had enough courage to get some more myself. I love this outfit.

  • Love this outfit, and I agree some piercing aren’t for everyone, I have one that my body is trying to reject and I think I might also have to admit defeat and just join you with this lovely bag! Great post x

    Did a little fist pump when I saw these trousers weren’t designer! Going to have to get em… they look amazing on you x

  • I’ve always admired other people’s nose rings! But I don’t think I will ever get one done myself, but I can still appreciate the aesthetic on others!

    I think I’d love to get a few more on my ear lobes though for that Candice Swanepoel beach babe look if you get me… hah. Such a lovely outfit!

  • Love the bag and those striped pants! I took all my piercings out too and I barely wear earrings in my original ear holes :/

  • very cool! I love the hardware on your jacket!

  • I’ve only ever pierced my eyes! Love this outfit btw, those pants are amazing x

  • Love your style so much! This outfit is so perfect!

    Ugh I really couldn’t help but notice that J.W. Anderson bag. Literally major! I love that ring pierced through it. This look is just so great from head-to-toe. Those stripped pants are to die for and I love the way you styled this. The leather jacket gave you an extra added edge and I think you completely killed this whole look. Stunning! I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  • Love the stripy trousers! Amazing outfit!

    Thanks Lucy for speaking for the rest of us. Entering 30s really shows the aging process has already begun. Our bodies just don’t heal the same. Scars are the worst enemies right now. And to be honest I don’t remember the last time I wore earrings. I think my ear pierces are goners by now probably.

  • Kelly

    Your fierce! I love your personal style. I think we could be good blog friends :) I just started my blog and have a ways to go but plan to do many more style posts. Follow me too at

  • How long do you normally think about your investment purchases before buying, Lucy? You always seem to choose the best pieces and get great wear out of them, would love to know how you decide which ones to go for and which to let pass..

  • Pardon My Obsession

    Love JW Anderson, he always knows to be edgy yet classic and cool !

  • Susan

    Yes, clothes and shoes are worth the investment; for the rest, vintage is the way to go.

  • Really love the stripe trousers, nice way to style them too.

    Vikki, xx
