it's all in the jeans

I am fussy. Really fussy when it comes to jeans. Hence, I own two pairs.

I asked some of you on Twitter and Facebook for some style advice as to the best designer jeans out there for me to purchase. I don't want jeans with rips, holes, tie dye, rather, just classic dark blue denim, which hug the body in all of the right places. I do prefer flare and bootcut, but I also like straight legged jeans. I've been told Seven For All Mankind jeans and J Brand (thanks Phoebes and Calvin x) were worth checking out, so here's some of my favourite styles .













It's looking like my preference is leaning more towards 7 For All Mankind at this stage. I'd love you to help me in my quest for finding the perfect pair of jeans. I'll be saving up for a pair and will probably start looking next month! All of your suggestions are most welcome. Please leave a comment with a link to any websites or blog posts related to purchasing designer jeans. Thanks guys! 

I hope you're all having an enjoyable week. I finalised my student reports and it feels great knowing they are completed. Next week is the last week before school holidays. I'm hanging out for a break! 

Yours in style,

  2. I'm pretty partial to 7 for All Mankind, as I own a pair that is so comfortable that I take naps in them! (I'm also wearing them right now as I type this - the Roxanne skinnies). I love the first pair of high-waist flares that you posted.

    I have heard really good things about J Brand too, but I don't have any personal experience with them!

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette.
