J Crew

For when you are not wearing Cashmere

For those of you who don’t know, I live in a lovely little place in the world that right now is like living in an over worked oven owned by Martha Stuart. So for myself right now , I only have  a cashmere blanket to keep me cosy while my air con stay at a cool crisp 18 degrees. Needles to say maybe that’s why I haven’t posted in a while. I am so sorry, so deeply sorry that if I had the money everyone would get matching cashmere scarf and glove pack ( in their own colour of choice )

Back to the post shall we, so needles to say while y’all be freezing where ever you are in the world, I have been in search for the prefect summer looks and can I said it very very hard. As, one would assume this weather is not layering weather , it when the one item you are wearing must stand strong ( and not show your sweat marks , its realllly hooooooot) And for sun safe lovely also give you protection. Now , as we all know Fifty Shades of Grey is coming out and I truly love Dakota , maybe its cause we actually look the same and it great. But, I also love the way she dress. One of my favourite looks is what she wore to the Verve Clicquot Polo classi  a while back, I know it old news but the dress is timeless.


She paired a lovely Diane von Furstenberg dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. I must say I really love the hat!  This type of dress can be layer and loved for ever just add a button down to the look to dress it down or keep it as is.

Jenna Lyons is my spirit animal

We all know my love for J Crew, but however the one thing greater then that love , is my praise to my leader Jenna Lyons. The one , the only, the all mighty and amazing Jenna Lyons. I have had a ostrich  feathers black mini in my wardrobe for some time now. Fun fact , I scored it on eBay for $60 ! Bless eBay’s beautiful soul. But, there is something next level with the creation that Ms Lyons has created. With the relaxed feel of a tee shirt , pure geniuses ( and we expect nothing better from the women herself). Can I be the first to say , I have never been the girl to dream of a her wedding day , although I do enjoy “Say yes to the dress “, I truly believe I would personal great Jena Lyons with rage and demand that she swaps my wedding dress with her simplistic look. What I would give for a skirt, just to hang it from my door and gaze at it , the softness of feathers , especially ostrich can never be beaten. And that what’s Ms Lyons has shown in her outfit , she doesn’t pair the skirt with anything harsh, no just a simple white shirt and a fur for wartime ( I bet its vintage , just saying).


This inspiration , has lead me to gather one of my greatest eBay finds and reinvent it in totally unique looks and ways. Although , my feather shirt may not be white and may not be long, I know we can build many wonderful times together. Keep waiting for these adventures tales to see what wild concoctions spin from my mind.

Attention all, life changing event to occur

I hope you are sitting down, this is some pretty big news I am about to type out. Two of the greatest thing are about to in some sense become one. J.Crew and Sophia Webster have a collaboration and its coming…. very very soon .So save my darlings save. It comes 23rd April. And my gosh I know its going to be prefect. And I know I will need every single one, all kinds. I will need them all !! I may have only seen three images, but I think I am in love.
Firstly let’s just point it out now, match made in heaven. Combine the power house of prep and with the newest most wonderfully colourful Sophia Webster. I will be surprised if the website doesn’t crash. Or if people are not harmed in store.
Secondly, in some degree the price range is acceptable. My sources tell me that the shoes start from $320-$695.
More important information, we have 13 shoes to fight each other to death over ( its going to happen). Rumour has it in serial different styles and heights
So word or advice ladies, know your size. Work out your best vantage point, may this be in store or online. If your online shopping ( like myself), I pray to the internet Gods, that all those little bars are full, strong and fast ( very fast) and keep your eyes opened . Finally befriend a staff member, charm away. You never know , they may help you out and land you a new lovely pair of shoes! Screenshot (127)
