My Design Weekends

j. crew style ... weekends

Deirdre Brennan - Friday, November 23, 2012


This is the time of year to spruce up the weekend wardrobe in readiness for that casual entertaining in the lead up to the silly season.  Well actually that season is upon us now.  I always give J. Crew a casual glance to get my eye in for the latest look instore.  A trip to Zara is just as good ... particularly Bondi Junction in Sydney which is slightly more elegant and easier to navigate than the city store.


Feel I am giving away trade secrets here, however not everyone has success with this look.  I personally love this smart, with a touch of glamour look .... yes I am drawn to the little jacket with the weather we are having at the moment.  Don't get me wrong ... this is not the look for the Christmas party, Christmas drinks or even Christmas day.  You will need something far more festive for those occasions.  This is just for 'popping in for a casual drink with friends on a Sunday afternoon' or 'meeting your girlfriend for a glass of champagne at the local wine bar before Christmas !!


PS. To all my friends in the rag trade ... I am no fashion guru ... just know what I like.  Maybe it is all in the fabrics and colours ... more my expertise !!
