My most favourite jeans and a hot tip

I have previously stated that i could dedicate a whole post to these Chloe bought knock down years ago jeans - they are the best ever jeans - I loooooove them!

So here you go and for every one of these pics there were a thousand more times i wore them, loved them and did not have a camera to hand - some pieces just are too good to be true.


With Miu Miu blouse and navy blazer, cross body Celine bag


J Crew open denim shirt, T by Wang Tee, again that Celine bag


Liberty bracelet, Celine sunnies and navy blazer


That Marni Cape and the Miu Miu blouse again


A new shot - the one we got before the camera battery died...

Chloe blouse previously seen as a dress with Balenciaga cardi and my new hat from Club Monaco

*******

And now i have a little fashion tip to share - my wonderful tailor atelier colpani can tailor a jean - oh yes - because my second fave pair of jeans - 901 j brands are a size too big - but only really on the bum - they have tailored the seat as they have politely informed me is the more correct and polite terminology and these jeans now fit me perfectly - yes if you look close the fading is not quite as it should be but really they never ever fitted like this - you need a very very good tailor but by jo it is so worth it x

  7. Tailored the seat, wow I am impressed, around here a hem is about all I'll trust anyone with, I'd love to find a decent tailor. You look great in jeans, I think I might dig out my J Brand flares this weekend, can you send your long legs over?

  8. Hey Tabs i think those legs of yours will do just fine! xx

    Thanks little Rus x

    Thanks for letting me know Andrea x

    Viva he is the best x

    They are so flattering Helen and when you go up or down a bit - forgiving - not that common in a jean i feel x

    Thanks Sarah - i think i need a 2nd pair for when these will give out! x

  11. 1. I love the jeans week features. It makes me want to go find some new ones. I currently only have one pair since I'm more of a black trousers type of girl. 2. I am so happy you posted about your lifestyle and budget. I think that working hard should be rewarded. The problem with the young folk is that everyone wants a quick fix and not to have to work to get to that place. I just hope that my generation isn't ruining their financial future in the sake of some pretty shoes.

  18. I've been telling you how much I love those Chloe jeans and have been looking for the perfect pair everywhere (I don't want the patchwork ones, but the plain dark flair--not easy to come by here). Anyway, thanks for the great tailoring tip--I didn't even think of that, but maybe I can shop a size up and nab a pair!

    You look fab in everything--really love them paired with the navy jacket!

  19. I know Mary Jo i dont want the patchwork - although i do like them i just dont think i am quite the person for them - it is the best tailoring tip i never would have guessed it was the tailor who told me whilst i was lamenting that all my jeans were too big and you get nothing on ebay for them - i have never had better fit jeans - they can shorten too keeping the original hem and side tailor for slimmer legs - seriously chuffing brilliant x

    Thanks Boye - i am always scared in a skinny but i am warming since the tailoring x

    Thanks Posh Kay will have a look x

    Thank you Monica and le petite x

    Really glad you are inspired Francesca x

    Cheers Ada and Stacey x

    I agree Lindsay - you prioritise and you make your life what it is and for that you get good and bad, I always feel proud of what i have achieved and i love what it gives me but it has had its sacrifices i am just lucky i have had someone to do it with x
