Thank you Meredith Melling Burke, Thank you Vanessa Jackman, Thank you Marc Jacobs and finally Thank you Anonymous ..

Otherwise known as fashion's holy grail, the perfect jean.  Is this what it takes - an uber editrix, a streetstyle photographer at the top of her game, one of fashion's greats le Jacobs and lastly, but definitely not least, anonymous, that fabulous fashion girl that knew her stuff and correctly identified the said perfect jean.

Those of you who have been with me for a while will know that i thought this to be the denim shot of the season - make that year - and herewith began the search that led me to Marc by Marc near Mount Street and me finding that former nemesis the perfect jean.  Leg lengthening, butt lifting, waist slimming not to mention 70's licious - they are so fab i got two pairs (different washes hey call me extravagant not crazy).

But then i wanted the perfect jacket and herein was my inspiration for my fab faux fur - short, bomber, cashmere trim, 70's licious and definitely proving a worthy addition, so a final thank you to my fab tailor, Jackie Palmer and hey, i am going to say it, my honed fashion eye that dreamt of this little beauty xx


Told you, leg-lenthening - of course the hidden uber Dior wedge is assisting - i suspect i am not as tall as Meredith Melling Burke 





Thought you might like a little close up on the faux fur


Frankie says happy xmas, i say happy xmas and we will see you very soon but not before the big day - wishing you all love, happiness and health over the holiday xx

  9. You certainly have the legs and figure to wear this style, darling and you look fabulous! Sending you, Frankie and loved ones pre-xmas wishes, hugs and kisses. Oh and yes, I do feel the summer time is going to be filled with flowers and petals and I can't wait to find a perfect dress to express my love for flowers. :) There'll be a post on my blog on Thursday next week (we are talking post Christmas week) that you may enjoy - I sort of have a feeling you may like some of the looks. :)

  12. I only just managed to check your blog after a hectic week and what do I see? one amazing photo after the next. Do tell me you were a model before because you look like one. You're impeccably chic (I'm turning green with envy as I'm typing this) and impossibly stunning from head to toe (I'm all green now).

  23. love the combination of the jeans and the short jacket! yes they are perfect but not for everybody! you look fabulous

  24. I know that is the thing i have realised the perfect jean for one is not for another - thats why they are so damn tricky - and so wonderful when you find a good pair - have a fab xmas x

    ReplyDelete
  25. You pull it off so beautifully. I'm on the shorter side of life and shy away from the flared bottom style even though I flat out adore them. I don't think wedges tall enough exist to make them look right on me. That faux fur bomber is gorgeous too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You look great in those jeans Claire. I love the addition of the luxe fur coat. Adds more glamor to the look.

  27. Let's just get right down to it.....
    You have amazing features, high cheek bones, your hair is beyond great, and your ass in those jeans is beyond compare....
    You have indeed been blessed in many ways....

    I hope you and your husband and Frank, have a glorious holiday season in England, the most lovely country of all.....

  29. I am glad you found your favourite jeans as well, and they really suit you and bring out the best! I am also a fan of high waisted. Nothing worse than a crack showing! The faux fur jacket really is beautifully made. Btw, I think you are setting a trend with your remote ;) Have a lovely christmas!

  34. Meredith Melling Burke & Co. would be proud of you: great 70s super chic style! And you know better: always buy two pairs if you find the right thin, that's a golden rule. Claire, I wish you a great holiday and all the best (including a lot of fab clothes, of course...) for 2012!

  43. Welcome back Claire! My xmas was good, I spent some time with my little boy and my hubby.
    Let's say that the tough part of it has been keeping my mother under control....have you even seen a hurricane? Nothing compared to her.......
    How was yours??

  46. So you'll celebrate the new year in London? How cool!! Rome is generally extra-boring!!!

  47. I am really surprised - i imagined it would be really good - i am not the biggest fan of new year but we are going somewhere we go a lot so it should be fun. I am really bored in the country now but mr has a cold or i would go today - may still try and convince him xx

  48. The look amazing on you, and might I add you look so much like another 70s icon: Veruschka!

  50. This is the pair of jeans i was talking about at another post of yours, mom saw them on you and she wanted a similar pair so she searched through the web and stores and ended up getting one. they are very cozy.
