BALMAIN BOOTIE

Posted on April 29th, 2013

Balmain Guipure lace boots from Luisaviaroma 

I had a weak moment a week or so ago after working non stop for the last couple of months and decided I needed a present. This cycle seems to happen every couple of months (hello Proenza leather jacket!) and its a lot more rewarding and the after glow lasts a lot longer than a high street pick me up, as fun as they can also be!

I had been eyeing them off for quite some time and am truly hooked on the lace bootie look, which is another way of wearing black while still keeping it interesting with the different textures.

Anywho, they're mine now and I can't wait to wear them with absolutely EVERYTHING!

DENIM SERIES . WHITE WASH

Posted on April 26th, 2013

Rag and Bone jeans, Jac + Jack shirt, Senso heels

Since I wear so much black its refreshing from time to time to be able to style an outfit without use a pair of black or leather pants. White jeans can be tricky but when done right they are sensational and have definitely earned their place in a denim must list.

I must add though unless you're one of the lucky ones with slim long legs (haven't you won the jackpot!) I would recommend wearing them with a heel of some variety to help lengthen, as white doesn't have the same natural slimming qualities as our best friend the black jean!

And that concludes my 5 part Denim series!

Let me know which style has been your favourite and if there are any other must have styles you recommend, would love to know! xx

Jeans and top are available now at selected David Jones stores and online.

DENIM SERIES . CLASSIC BLACK

Posted on April 25th, 2013

Paige black jeans, Bassike t-shirt, Saint Laurent heels

If there is just ONE thing you take away from this denim series, its that you NEED a pair of black jeans. I couldn't live without them. They're slimming like no other and go with everything. To me its amazing how chic a striped tee and black jeans can look with a pair of heels. You always look your best when you're comfortable in what you're wearing and if you're having one of those days where you feel like you look horrendous in everything (we all have them every now and then) then you can turn to your pair of black jeans and everything will be alright. I would even suggest getting two pairs just incase one of them is in the wash!

DENIM SERIES . BLUE AND SKINNY

J Brand jeans, Bassike tank

Nothing beats a pair of go to blue skinny jeans and pairing it with a relaxed style white tank. My favourite weekend off duty outfit by far! Shoes are clearly optional.

DENIM SERIES . HIGH WAIST

Posted on April 23rd, 2013

Cheap Monday Jeans, Bassike knit top, Senso heels.

Whenever I think of high waist jeans I get a little uncomfortable as to me they seem too trend orientated and sometimes aren't very flattering. Its all about how you style them though, as these super stretchy and dark charcoaled Cheap Monday jeans are amazing and worn with a slightly cropped knit, which may have been an awkward length on a lower rised jean works perfectly with the high rise cut.

Jeans and top are available now at selected David Jones stores and online.
