Boyfriend Jean Noisy MayUnconventional denim brand Noisy May have made the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans which should form part of your capsule wardrobe, Blog Reader. A sub brand of one of my favourites; Vero Moda, Noisy May is a playground for the denim junkie.  With cutting edge styles sitting alongside can’t-live-without jeans such as my boyfriend pair, Noisy May is a perfect shopping destination for affordable and cool fashion.

Alongside the skinny denim jean, boyfriend styles feature in my list of denim items within a capsule wardrobe.  As you can see in the post here, I’ve worn these jeans several ways – from pairing them with a simple white vest and trainers to red stilettos for a night out.  Now selling on ASOS, Noisy May have a selection of tops, jackets and sweatshirts to choose from.

Hudson Denim Jeanography William Williams Photographer styleonthecouchThose of you who follow my adventures in fashion on Twitter and Instagram may be familiar with my recent (though seemingly, never-ending) search for the perfect pair of skinny denim jeans.  The big denim hunt was not going too well but then I received a lovely email from Jeanography who offered to work with me to find my perfect fit  pair.

Jeanography are an online shopping destination offering expertise in the best fitting, best looking designer denim brands such as 7 for All Mankind, Hudson and Citizens of Humanity.  They suggested I might try their Fit First Time service, where I would select different styles and receive additional expert fit and styling advice to ensure I got the perfect match.  The whole process works like this:

1.  You simply select three pairs of jeans from the Jeanography website.  My selection:  7 For All Mankind Cristen Skinny in MimiHudson Jeans Nico Super Skinny in Black and Hudson Jeans Beth Crop Baby Bootcut in White

2. You place your order via the site, after which you will be contacted by Jeanography’s in house denim stylist who will confirm you have selected the right fit for your fashion needs based on your size and shape. It was at this point that I had a conversation about the rise of the skinny jeans I had selected and was advised to try the Hudson jeans because they might work well for me.

3. The jeans are sent special delivery to your home where you can try on all three pairs in the comfort of your living room and simply return any jeans that don’t fit within seven days. Jeanography will only charge you for the pairs you have kept.

I kept the pair that I had been advised to try by Jeanography’s in house stylist.  The Hudson Nico Super Skinny was the answer to my denim prayers!  A lovely fit and smart jet black colour, I couldn’t be happier.  Thank you to Jeanography for the gift of the jeans and for letting me try your service, I would recommend it highly to anyone needing help finding the perfect pair.

Edina Ronay Jacket Tresco Isles of Scilly

Edina Ronay jacket blue jacket styleonthecouchThese pictures were taken just outside the Ruin Beach Cafe on Tresco Island, Isles of Scilly. You can see more holiday snaps here.   The day these images were taken I was very content to be hanging out in the sunshine and taking in the view at Raven’s Porth, Old Grimsby from the cafe over to St Martins island.  Clearly influenced by my beach and sea surroundings I went for a nautically-themed outfit; wearing my Edina Ronay Sailor Jacket, Mango white tee and ASOS jeans.  The Christy’s hat was loaned from American Boyfriend – it’s amazing how many clothes I steal from him these days :)

Edina Ronay has a fascinating history as a designer. Born in Budapest, Ronay moved to London with her family and studied fashion design at Central St Martins before moving on to RADA to work on her acting career.  She was somewhat of an ‘It Girl’ in England in the 60s, then decided to travel to Ibiza, Formenterra and Morocco before returning to London in the 70s to start her vintage lace and clothing shop on the wonderful Kings Road.  She began to design again, after being inspired by the vintage pieces she was selling, especially the knitwear for which Edina is most often known.  In 2012 Ronay launched her Red Label collection – a limited edition, luxury heritage collection designed and produced exclusively in Britain.  The sailor jacket is a lovely style, part of Spring Summer 13, of which Edina tells us:

“For Spring Summer I created timeless, flattering pieces which will take anyone effortlessly from desk to dinner. My trademark knitwear is inspired by the 40s and 50s and made with the highest quality British mercerised cotton, adorned with details such as mother of pearl buttons and lacy knit stitches and French couture lace trimmings.  Continuing to design and produce my collections in Britain is extremely important to me and I consider that nurturing and supporting British talent and workmanship is more vital now than ever.”

To view more of Edina Ronay’s collection click HERE.  Be sure to check out the Live to Love silk summer print dress, as with every purchase Ronay will donate 50% of the price to Druk White Lotus School in the Himalayas, a charity aimed at providing students from the area with an excellent education as well as teaching them social and life skills.  A worthy cause indeed!
