Wearing Jeans and a Nice Top + FWRD Sale

5 December 2017

Self Portrait Top - FWRD Sale

I’ve been trying to add a few more NICE tops into my wardrobe lately.

It makes a lot of sense to invest in a nice going-out top (instead of a dress), because you can wear the top many more times than a dress – with jeans, pants, mini skirt, max skirt, culottes and more.

But yep, nice tops are hard to find!

Today I’m collaborating with FWRD to feature a few of my picks from their new Sale on Sale event.

Basically you get extra 20% off sale items for the next 3 days!

That’s pretty good, if you’r into designer labels :)

Simply use the code “TREAT4U” at the checkout. Sale ends Friday, 8 Dec 2017 at 12:59am (WA time).

Self Portrait Top - FWRD Sale

I picked out this gorgeous Self-Portrait Filcoupe Top, which worked out to be 50% off in the end — woohoo!

Initially I had my eye on the yellow version, but it was already sold out. This blue version is just as pretty, and it was probably the more sensible choice for my wardrobe.

I am totally in love with it!

I picked the Size 2, because I have a Self-Portrait dress in Size 0 and it’s um, very snug. I have to suck my tummy in the whole time I wear it, haha. So I was looking for a looser fit with the Size 2. Besides, the sizing for both Size 0 and 2, indicates that the top’s length and sleeve length were exactly the same.

What do you think about the sleeve length on me? A bit long? I can’t decide if it looks a bit wrong, because my judgement is heavily clouded by how pretty it is – haha.

It has a flare hem and the ruffle continues across my body, so it was a little tricky to tuck into my jeans, but I kind of liked the boofy-ness. Maybe it will tuck in better when I wear a higher cut jeans.

Self Portrait Top from FWRD

This is what it looks like when it is untucked.

You can notice how sheer it is when it’s over my black jeans, but it still looks soooo nice! I loooove it! I’m so biased!

I’m wearing my black skinny jeans from Frame Jeans, Mansur Gavriel Mini Mini Bag (also from FWRD) and Alexander Wang Heels (that I bought from FWRD about 3 years ago).

OK so to further inspire you, here are some tops I picked out from their Sale on Sale section:

FWRD Clearance Sale 2017

SELF-PORTRAIT Filcoupe Top – oh no, the same top is now sold out, sorry guys.

TIBI Off Shoulder Top – Tibi does some pretty nice tops, in luxurious fabrics. Definitely a top investment with this one. So versatile!

FWRD Clearance Sale 2017

T BY ALEXANDER WANG Cold Shoulder Top – I picked this top because it’s so slinky, versatile… and $100 (after discount) is pretty sweet for an Alexander Wang piece.

TIBI V Neck Top – Again, I love me some Tibi silk. I love the buckles on the back. I added this one to my cart, but it was 2 sizes too big, oops.

FWRD Clearance Sale 2017

RACHEL COMEY Euphora Top – I really like unique looking necklines, especially mixed with statement ruffles. It’s a perfect summer piece and great for a day time look.

TANYA TAYLOR Edie Top – This deep magenta colour is so pretty. Especially when it’s 100% silk with delicate ruffles.

FWRD Clearance Sale 2017

ZIMMERMANN Gingham Frill Top – Can’t go wrong with Zimmermann. Their pieces are often very delicate and floral, but this top is a little different. It has a casual beachy look to it, but still versatile for day and night.

TIBI One Shoulder Bell Sleeve Top – I also had my eye on this top, as it’s sweet and simple twist to the classic white cotton top.

Hope you enjoy my picks!

Happy shopping! xx
