Blue washed denim

by jamie-lee on July 16, 2014, 10 comments

image source: tumblr I’d hazard a guess that most women have a pair of blue washed denim hidden away in their wardrobes, or strewn haphazardly across the back of a chair. They’re the easiest thing to throw on during a lazy weekend, running errands and catching up with friends, yet somehow they’re one of the […]

On finding the perfect pair of black heels

by jamie-lee on July 7, 2014, 6 comments

image source – tumblr It would seem I am always looking for something. The perfect pair of jeans, the perfect sweatshirt, the perfect shade of red lipstick. Though I’m always quick to make allowances. Finding the perfect anything is nigh on impossible, especially when considering how quickly our tastes are likely to change. Two weeks, […]

Witchery petal front top, Karen Walker skirt (similar), Acne mape leather jacket, Karen Walker x Benah bag Unless you’ve been avoiding your inbox, or any Westfield in your vicinity, you’ll know that the mid-year sales have already begun.

Wardobe classics: the denim jacket

by jamie-lee on May 22, 2014, 5 comments

image sourced from tumblr The denim jacket; not quite the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the classics. It’s not a sleek black blazer, or a pair of killer high heels, but instead the kind of piece that conjures up strong images of Americana, and nostalgia of a youth not yet forgotten. […]

The leather jacket

Tibi peplum top (cheaper alternative), Frame Denim jeans, Acne mape leather jacket, Opening Ceremony sandals (similar style), Celine trio Sometimes the best purchases are the ones which you wait months to make. Painstakingly saving every last penny, and forgoing those morning coffees and afternoon pick-me ups just to get there a little quicker. I’ve never […]

On finding the perfect winter coat

image source – Andreea Diaconu in Isabel Marant Etoile, photographed by Karim Sadli Winter. Always the perfect excuse for a new coat (not that you needed one, of course). As if the shorter days and glistening layer of frost covering the grass every morning weren’t enough of a cue, it helps that the winter chill […]

With sun dappled skies announcing that summer is well and truly here, it feels like it’s finally time to kick off those chelsea boots and slip my toes into strappy pair of sandals, which are only bound to come off as soon as my feet hit the sand. While I plan to run around barefoot […]

On finding the perfect t-shirt

img src: various tumblr & The most elusive of all wardrobe essentials, is the perfect t-shirt. A quick trawl through the copious amounts of streetstyle images, in which women are so nonchalantly flicking their hair with the perfectly slouchy yet structured just ‘so’ t-shirt would have you thinking differently.

On finding the perfect pair of leather brogues

by jamie-lee on November 19, 2013, 3 comments

Finding the perfect anything is a little like finding your one true love. It is only uncovered in those moments where the thought of such a thing is long forgotten, and nigh on impossible to come across until that point.
