Coloured Jeans Craze

Last month I wrote a post called Jean Jeanie where I talked about my quest for the perfect jeans and how my most amazing jean find was a pair of Emerson cobalt blue skinny jeans from Big W.  These jeans have to be the bargain of the year for only $18.86!

Since that post, I have had so much incredible feedback, not only about the coloured jeans, but about the Emerson range in general.

“Based on your previous post about your Emerson jeans, I went to Big W to check out what the fuss was about…….. after 10 minutes in Big W, I bought a $22 dress, a $19 cardi and a $7 pair of shoes! All of which actually make me feel like “me” again! Instead of wearing baggy or old clothes, I felt fab! And I’ve now worn that outfit at least 8 times so my cost per wear is getting lower by the day!  Thanks for the inspiration to make a little effort on my outer which has left me feeling fab on the inside.xoxoxo “

That comment alone was totally worth starting my blog for! It made me feel so amazing and happy, and even brought a few tears to my eyes.

Then just the other day I got the following text message;

“I just found the best coloured skinny jeans in that Emerson brand, 20 bucks!  Amy, what a legend.”

As much as I would love to, I can’t take any credit for discovering these jeans, that was all thanks to the legendary Nikki Parkinson from Styling You and her fab post that you can find here.

If you haven’t already got yourself down to Big W to pick up a pair of these coloured jeans, then put it at the top of your to-do list for this week.  It will be the best $20 you’ve spent in a long time, and you never know what other bargains you might find in the Emerson range.

Happy shopping lovely ladies!

My amazing Seed T-Shirt

Have you ever bought an item of clothing that you love so much you can’t stop wearing it?

It happened to me a few weekends ago. I know that t-shirts are normally pretty boring,  but this Seed t-shirt is no ordinary tee.  It has silver foiling and makes a normal everyday outfit just that bit more interesting.  Plus it’s loose and soft and super comfy and it washes up really well.  I’ve worn it half a dozen times already and can’t wait to wear it again.  It goes with everything and I’ll even be able to wear it under a cardy or blazer during winter.

Me in my Seed T

I like to figure purchases out at ‘cost per wear’, and this T was a total bargain based on how many times I’ve worn it already!  I’m on the lookout for some similar tops and tee’s, (which I find the hardest items to add to my wardrobe for some reason?) so if you see any on your shopping travels – I’d love to hear from you!

Have you bought something recently that you can’t stop wearing?

Do you figure purchases out at cost per wear like I do?

Jean Jeanie

For years I struggled to find a pair of jeans that were flattering and fit properly.  I would go shopping in search of the perfect pair, try a couple on, get frustrated and go home thinking that maybe there just weren’t any jeans out there for me.

Then one lovely sunny day I popped into a store and tried on yet another pair of jeans. They were perfect for me.  Plain, simple, they pulled me in at all the right places and made me look thinner than I am (hooray!).  They were magic jeans!  Oh, and they happened to be made by J Brand.

Since then I have been a big J Brand fan, I usually buy the 811 mid rise skinnies as worn here by none other than the very stylish Kate Middleton;

I order them online from  J Brand Jeans, Shopbop or Revolve Clothing.

More recently I stumbled across a pair of white skinny jeans that were on sale at Witchery and I absolutely loved the fit.  The waist is mid rise (perfect for a mummy tummy) and they seem to sit and fit just right.  Plus, white jeans are highly recommended by the style bible ‘Parisian Chic’ (as seen below right) and so I just had to have them!


But I would have to say that my most recent and exciting jean jeanie find was inspired by  a post from the legendary Nikki Parkinson from Styling You that you can find here.  Nikki showed how to rock a coloured jean this Autumn-Winter, and after reading her post, my mind was made up!

I headed to Big W and thought I would check out the Emerson range of coloured jeans, and sitting right there on the rack was one lone, cobalt-blue pair of jeans in my size. It was love at first sight!

After a quick trip to my tailor, I have to say that they are the softest and most comfortable pair of jeans that I have ever owned. And they only cost me $19!  These jeans are the ultimate addition to any winter wardrobe (and perfect for any mum with a little person with sticky fingers!).

And so the moral of my little jean jeanie story is that there is a perfect pair of jeans out there for everyone, you just have to find them.  Happy hunting!

**Ps. A little tip that I learnt from a friend years ago is to take your jeans to a tailor and have the pockets cut out and sewn down. It makes the front of the jeans sit smoothly and is more slimming**

 What are your favourite jeans?

Do you have any tips to make them fit and sit better?
