Chicfinds is back and we would like to begin to reengage you with our weekly or daily chic finds. Here is a couple of our current obsessions.
First on the list is Sezane. The brand is French and only sold online. From watching the product mix from season to season I recommend going for their knits which sell out in minutes and are gorgeous with a real point of different. The knits are amazing with v neck backs, sexy collars, knot ties and cardigans that dress up or dress down, wear at the front, wear to the back. I love also their boots and denim. My favourites are the Eduardo knit with the lace neckline. My second favourite is the Gaspard which has beautiful mother of pearl buttons on the back. Third favourite is the Marcel which comes in block colours and also a stripe. Love Love Love!
2nd obsession is stocking up on white t-shirts for every occasion. I have decided to pare back on tops and really have a staple wardrobe with great t-shirts. I think this has to be the hardest find. The top ones are amazing but for some they can be xxxy like Rag & Bone, Acne, Alexander Wang and James Pearce. The lower end ones just don’t cut it, H&M, Zara and others don’t get the crew neck right, nor the fabric, nor the fall. The in between is the 1960’s inspired jersey slim t-shirt from https://shopredone.com/products/vintage-white-slim-tee which is called RE/DONE. It is around $78. See link for details; https://shopredone.com/products/vintage-white-slim-tee. Then for a more relaxed look I would go for the slim vintage neck t.shirt from Bassike, see link; https://www.bassike.com/women/organic-jersey/t-shirts/slim-vintage-neck-t-shirt-ss16wjt96-wht. They are quite long but a little bit tucked or left out suits this T. Another option is Velvet who have very nice long sleeve options. My choice would be Jemma crew neck; https://velvet-tees.com/women/velvet-tees-and-tops/tees/jemma-gauzy-whisper-crew-neck-tee-975433-1.html
As my core staple the t-shirt will go back with a maxi skirt, a great skinny jean with a blazer, with a mini and a cardigan and high heel for evening and a baggy black masculine fit pant. The best one to observe for the t-shirt outfit is Alexa Chung. Next post will give you ideas on shirting and some fabulous beauty finds.
A few Chicfinds for in between seasons. Still loving leather even for Spring and why not also for summer. We found some fantastic leather pants with that baggy feel called Smith Made from Mr & Mrs Smith, Manly; http://shopmrandmrssmith.blogspot.com.au/ paired up with a white t-shirt and some Alexander Wang heels this is a great look for the change of seasons. We also love the Bassike range of leather available at Island Luxe Tribe in Byron Bay. I would summarize spring and summer and use the three SSS’s Spring/Summer this season is simple and sexy. For pieces to put with your leather or denim have a look at the beautiful collections of Alexander Wang ,Helmut Lang, Rick Owens and Acne. You can see a fantastic selection at Elyse Walker’s online store; http://www.forwardbyelysewalker.com. Otherwise visit Tuchuzy in Bondi, Sydney; http://www.tuchuzy.com/ Looking for that perfect ankle boot that will go with everything and still give you a nice line on the leg?

http://en.vogue.fr/fashion/fashion-news/articles/the-vogue-fashion-night-out-2012/14116 We love Marion and her chic Parisian style dressing. She manages to have that thrown together look with a t-shirt and shorts but her accessories are classic and sexy. She cant help but remind me of the beautiful Jane Birkin.
Beautiful sexy legs are very in fashion. The sandal is so feminine this season it is barely there but just enough to be a foots best friend. Marion is wearing t-shirt called “Dryclean only” from Bangkok, denim shorts from H&M. Strappy sandals by Barbara Bui and handbag is by Christian Dior. Her sunglases are from a market in Seol.
Visit Shoerazzi for a bit of a guide on the latest Spring/Summer 12 styles. I think it has to be said that you cant get much sexier than a quality strappy sandal. Let me emphasis though that quality is the word here. No point buying the look at under $100. Give this shoe a good part of your budget as it will take you far and you will be able to match it up with all the less expensive looks of Zara, H&M and all the high street fashion brands. shttp://shoerazzi.com/
