The Sister Jane Blouse

Not going to lie to you. I was excited to wear this today.

This top is from ASOS and is by the brand Sister Jane. I love the classic collar, the light fabric (the finest polyester I am sure) and of course, the diamante detailing.

They define this as "pink" on the site....oooookay then....it's obviously the palest pink AKA cream but in ASOS's defence, the website pictures are very true to how it looks in real life so there were no nasty surprises upon its arrival.

I really love it and it has got me looking at the brand's other offerings which all embody the same sentiment as this top - retro shapes and modern styling. A perfect combination!

I paired it with a blazer (standard) and Cheap Monday jeans (also standard)...living on the edge I tell you :)








Top: Sister Jane - Link!
Blazer: ASOS - Link!
Jeans: Cheap Monday skinnies
Shoes: Were the ole' grey Kurt Geigers.
Bag: Miu Miu
Earrings: not sure of the brand but they are Akoya pearls?
Sunglasses: Gucci

In other news...

This is THE candle that is rocking my world at the moment - by the suppliers to Bath & Body Works, Slatkin & Co, it's good old Vanilla Caramel.


In some ways this is the most generic of scents - it's just a sweet vanilla that is duplicated by countless other candle companies. But the way this penetrates your home cannot be mistaken. It's strong and sweet and will make you crave dessert. I have a few candles from this brand and for the purposes of making your home smell delish (and for hiding kitchen cooking smells and my intense need to put garlic into everything I cook) this is one of the best.

For those of you in the UK there are a few sites that sell these beauties...here is one of them - Link! I have never purchased anything from them but it should tide you over until B&BW open up next year (as I have been told :)

Have a great Sunday :)

  7. The top is lovely, I like the colour and its simple detailing! I also must purchase some cheap monday skinny jeans, I find it so hard to find some decent ones which don't lose shape and leave baggy knees!

  8. @Robyn - to be completely honest I wouldn't buy these ones...they grey cheap monday jeans that I have are much better quality. these are pretty meh...i might look at H&M soon and see what they have to offer as a lot of people recommend their jeans. its so tricky!

  10. the blazer is VERY flattering. I read that you didnt recommend those cheap monday jeans. I feel you have to dry on so many of the same cut till you find a pair that is of higher quality, and they all seem to be made and cut a little differently EVEN if they theyre the same size and style.

  18. That is rather lovely.
    I can't imagine it would be very flattering on the larger chested of us though... I just can't seem to carry off such high necklines without looking frumpy :S

  19. Stylish as ever!! I bet the blouse would look great tucked into some denim shorts with opaque tights under them x x

  41. OMG. Love those candles. I actually combine something sweet like the vanilla caramel with Fireside, and it puts me in the perfect winter mood! Very helpful when you live somewhere where 50 F is considered frigid.

  45. I got my first pair of Cheap Monday jeans a week ago and I blame you Laura! Seriously the best denim I have had so far. Suffice to say that my Diesel and Acne have gone to the back of the wardrobe. That and I love to shop in Urban Outfitters in Covent Garden, you're pretty much guaranteed to find cool stuff there every time you go.

  46. WOW that blouse, thank you so much for putting this brand onto my radar. x

  47. I love the collar! I bet that candle smells divine =)
