Imma get your heart racing in my skin tight jeans

April 10, 2011 § 8 Comments

Be your teenage dream tonight… Nahhhhh, I’m totally not as babe’n as Katy but any chance to incorporate some Katy goodness into my posts is a great one! As you would all know I’m more of a skirts and dresses girl-only once every blue moon do I even bother looking for jeans to wear. But, when I do, I as any other girl, hate the experience. It’s so hard finding the right colour, fit, and style! Not long ago, I realised my favourite pair of Miss 60 jeans were coming to a sad and natural end to its life and coincidentally I was approached to give the Jeanswest experience ago! Ding Ding Ding, win win win! As some of you might know, Jeanswest in collaboration with Westfield have opened up an online store and I’ve realised choosing jeans isn’t that hard after all. There’s my little guide to getting great jeans:
-Think about your current favourite pair of denims, write down their pros and cons
-Do they fit well? Accent your assets? Flatter your shape? Go well with the rest of your wardrobe?
-If not, what do you think would change that? Another colour? Tighter? More loose? Higher? Lower?
-Girls with skinny ankles and calves should defintely take advantage of cropped jeans and cuffed jeans (but no more than 2 inches above your ankle)
-Muscularcalves aren’t  flattered in jeans with a lot of elasticity[jeggings]
-Infact I’m not a fan of jeggs at all
-If you’re blessed with a flat stomach, go right ahead and rock some low rise/boyfriend jeans (but not ‘flash-a-crack’ low, no one needs to see that, or the elasticated band on your underwear -shudders-)
-Petite girls should avoid wearing flares with flats, only wear them with heels >3.5inches
-For jeans to work for day and night, go for a darker rinse
I personally feel quite affectionately toward skinny jeans, because they are fantastic with both flats and heels, and they don’t make me look even shorter than I already am. I also love a mid-rise, but it’s so hard finding ones that sit exactly right! Not anymore, I found these ‘Liv’ Slim jeans in forever black the perfect fit for me, and guess what? I didn’t even need try them on! I just took some measurements, sort the advice of the Jeanswest (very easy to comprehend) Size Chart. They arrived and fit amazingly They’re so easy to dress up with ruffled top and a blinged out Mimco necklace.Or down, with a t-shirt and blazerSo, go, explore the world of jeans (and other pretty stuff, they also stock other pretty stuff) at Jeanswest.

April “I want” list

March 25, 2010 § 9 Comments

Ahhh it’s the holidays and what better way to celebrate than making a “I want” list. Wow, I can’t believe this is the first one for the year, considering I spent days on end on net-a-porter!

Rick Owens leather jacket – The weather is thankfully cooling down and my old leather jacket is just a bit too thick

Roberto Cavalli snake bangle – The facination with animal jewelery continues!

Judith Leiber clutch – Too cute!

Tom Binns necklace – OTT version of a sweater clip

Maison Martin Margiela belt – To toughen up girly skirts

Fishnet and stud Louboutins – need I say anything?

Miu Miu cage platforms – perfect nude pumps!

 

Vanessa Bruno cape – This will solve dressing for weird autumn weather

 

Red Valentino t-shirt – Think I might skip the $300 and just DIY this one ;)
