borrowed from the boys

A few weeks ago Emily and I attended a Gap styling event hosted by Grazia magazine. What fun to be able to browse the beautiful summer collection in store at our own leisure – think loads of bright prints and colours and, of course, the essential basics that Gap are famous for. As part of the Styling session we were given the option to choose any pair of Gap’s 1969 denims with the idea of styling them our own way. We tried on a whole bunch of denims and both eventually settled on the Sexy Boyfriend – a style that neither of us are too familiar with but one that certainly fits our lifestyles juggling work and our littles.

The Boyfriend Jean is not just about being a more relaxed fit. It is looser than the skinnies we’re used to, but it’s still tailored and tapered to fit just right. They are the softest, most comfortable denims you can imagine and it’s pretty difficult not to wear them every day!

Emily styled her Boyfriends with a Beck & Sondergard scarf and Splendid top, both from Shop-Label, Zara heels and clutch and Prada sunnies from Sunglass Hut.

winning with shop label

I still have to pinch myself to believe that I was the winner of the Shop Label women’s day competition. I got an over excited phone call from my sister-in-law Barbara who was actually standing in the shop next to the manager, watching her write down the name of the winner. Barbara had been praying all week that she’d win, and I did! Thanks for your prayers Barbs x

My prize was a R5 000 Shop Label voucher, as well as other wonders like a Carlton hair makeover voucher, delicious biscuits from Roxanne Floquet, Hanky Panky knickers, a Charlotte Rhys hamper and some beautifying products from Rapid Lash eyelash enhancer and Balm Balm.

I spent the afternoon at Shop Label with Camilla, who is the most knowledgable woman when it comes to denim. She picked out the perfect pair of jeans for me, amidst the hundreds I tried on. My new J-Brand jeans are the prize of my wardrobe and paired with the new silky soft white tee and leopard print scarf I basically have a whole new wardrobe. Thanks for picking me Shop Label!

Here are a few shamelessly self indulgent pics of my personalised shopping experience.
