Black, White & Denim: Vivienne Westwood, Zara, J Brand & Majdan Rocks
5th February 2014
This is one of my favourite style posts on the blog because all of my new family were involved in its inception – husband and photographer extraordinaire and my recently ‘adopted’ yellow lab framed in the winter sunlight back in December in the USA.
I wish the winters in England were always as bright as they were in Atlanta. Even though Atlanta recently had snow, here in the UK I seem perpetually surrounded by grey clouds, wind and rain. All very depressing. Very soon I will have diagnosed myself with Seasonal Affective Disorder, thank goodness the fashion weeks are fast approaching for some excitement!
Black, white and denim continue to be my wardrobe theme since the past few years. I bought this pair of J Brand boyfriend jeans in the U.S at Neiman Marcus and have been wearing them with a range of shirts and slouchy jumpers during this cold time. Admittedly the ripped fabric adds an extra chill when you step outside your front door having forgotten what you’re wearing, but hey, this is fashion not comfort, Blog Reader
This Vivienne Westwood Anglomania coat is one of those wonderful styles, half cape, half jacket, that makes me feel cocooned when I wear it. I know this will stay with me for years through the autumn winter seasons, and I particularly like the wide sleeves that make it compatible with a range of things worn under it (I just can’t abide a tight-fitting coat, unless perhaps military styles, that means I can’t layer well in the cold).
During my December travels I wore my Majdan Rocks Slope Ring often. I’m not an avid wearer of jewelry but this ring is a wonderfully substantial piece to show off; modern in style and a little quirky. Majdan Rocks are currently sold on the Luisaviaroma website which is testament to the success of the brand. A little bit of daring with a lot of understated elegance, do check out designer Iwona Majdan’s website for more in this series.
