iCurvy’s September SPIN the PIN

 

 

 

Jo from iCurvy has taken this pin from They All Hate Us for this month’s challenge.  What I do is put my own spin to it, using my style but inspiration from the pin.  This pin shows two ladies looking hot and feminine wearing denim on denim.  I love chambray and light denim especially in warmer weather.  The leopard, stripes, scarf and heels really gives it that modern chic look.

 

Here is my comfortable but still chic spin.

 

 

September Spin the pin

The jacket was a gift but here is a similar one // Chambray dress is last seasons from Mix Apparel but here is a similar one from Mix Apparel // You can buy these Tory Burch thongs here // Necklace was from eBay here is a similar one from The Adorn Collective

Firstly I want to apologize about the picture quality this photo was taken as the sun was setting.  I went for more of a comfortable approach opting for thongs over heels, I live in Australia so thongs are totally acceptable.  These thongs have a leather strap and gold detail so they are still quite feminine.  I love tan and denim they go together like strawberries and chocolate.  To brake up the denim on denim and to add some sparkle to the outfit and also because I love some bling I’ve added a statement piece which I got from eBay a few years ago.  This chambray dress is really comfortable and practical to wear and it’s right on trend this season.  Denim jackets are a classic, who hasn’t owned a denim jacket in their life?  This one came all the way from Spain.

One Shirt + One Jumper = Three Outfits

Back in the 90’s, I remember watching this commercial for Tim Tams as a kid.  You might remember it, a lady rubs a lamp and a genie appears and grants her three wishes.  Her third and final wish was a never ending packet of Tim Tams.  If a genie ever came to me and I was granted a wish I would ask for a never ending wardrobe but until that happens, I have to learn how to get the most out of my wardrobe.

Two items that everyone has in their wardrobe is a white shirt and a jumper. I love jumpers! I could live in them for the entire duration of winter so, it gives me more of an incentive to mix it up sometimes. I love throwing a jumper on over a shirt I just think it looks so sleek, sophisticated and adds another layer to your outfit. Visually it looks like you’ve made a greater effort than what you actually have.

The shirt and jumper I’m wearing are from two companies I love.  This shirt is by Atmos & Here exclusive to The Iconic. I own a few Atmos & Here items because not only are the clothes nice but it’s also really affordable .  I loveee The Iconic, nothing makes my heart skip a beat like fast delivery and a website I can easily navigate around.  The shirt I’m wearing you can no longer find on The Iconic but there is a very similar one by Atmos & Here called ‘Hampton Summer Shirt’, it’s on sale for only $29.97

The jumper is from a company I’ve only recently discovered I like which surprised me because I didn’t expect to find anything I like, Mix Apparel.  They have free shipping on orders over $50 and their website is also easy to navigate around.  I’m wearing the ‘Hi-Lo Cable Jumper’ in grey, they don’t have many left. Their on sale at the moment for only $19 how good is that?

Style One: This look is all about being comfortable and casual without looking like a dag.  Great for shopping, catching up with friends, school drop offs and for casual Fridays.  I love jeans and Converse together.  The great thing is this look won’t break the bank because everyone owns a pair of jeans and sneakers and if you don’t own sneakers you can wear flats instead.

Style Two: I wore this outfit to Friday night drinks.  The pleather pants were on sale for $4.95 from the new Forever 21 store that has just opened on Pitt Street in Sydney.  So comfortable and sliming.  Its been so cold in Sydney lately so I chose to wear my new leather Django and Juliette boots with a small heel instead of wearing open toe lace up monochrome sandals which look amazing with this outfit.  I chose whatever is warmer in winter, I think this might be a sign of getting older.

Style Three:  Off to work! Trousers and the same boots I wore in Style Two.  Just like everyone owns a pair of jeans and tights, if you work in a corporate environment you would also own a pair of black pants.

One shirt, one jumper three outfits.

So readers which style is your favourite? Have you shopped at The Iconic or Mix Apparel?
