On-line Boutique Shopping at the-bias-cut.com

So what do you do when you’re approached by a fashion retailer and asked to model some of their clothing range on your blog (apart from jump up and down of course)? 😀

 

Well actually do some research first!  I have never been prepared to compromise on my style and because of this will not accept relationships with brands that I have no natural affinity for.  the-bias-cut.com, which is solely an on-line retailer, offered some immediate surprises.  Here I have to confess to a passion for shopping in my PJs from the comfort of my sofa…it is all so easy these days providing you use a reliable web-site which offers great service, easy returns and reasonably priced world-wide delivery (a must for me as I’m in Spain for much of the year).

The first thing that you are aware of when you log-on to the-bias-cut is the look and feel of the site.  I would describe it as being like stepping into a chic but quirky boutique instead of into a high street store or a designer emporium.  A great start for me as I like this type of (physical) shopping experience, and have lots of experience of the independant retail sector from both sides of the counter!

 

I liked the selection of under-the-radar labels alongside the more established such as the Danish brand, Baum Und Pferdgarten.  I liked the wide selection of sizes and the ability to search by styles, fabrics, colors, sizes etc. But what I liked most was that all the models are women like you and I.  Real people of all shapes and sizes, ages and color.  Brilliant!  Why don’t more brands wise up to the fact that all women need clothes, not just the young skinny ones :p Der!  But the icing on the cake is that Jacynth, founder and owner of the business the-bias-cut.com runs a campaign ‘Age is Never in Style’…how cool is that?

Anyway, I made my selection of items to model and awaited the arrival of my parcel.  The first outfit that I’ve featured is from a new designer to me, Amsterdam based, Fabienne Chapot.  The choice of leopard print was obv a bit of a no brainer for me ;D.  I thought, rightly, that I could create a chic outfit by pairing the pants (stretch cotton) with matching camisole.  This is the sort of look that I would wear for a relaxed summer wedding or for a formal garden party, or even to the races with a saucy hat!  I added my own linen blazer and gladiator sandals and I’m carrying a trunk bag also from the-bias-cut.

From the accessories label Hollycroft, and crafted from vegan leather, this little clutch was nicely made but, I thought, rather let down by the detachable strap that didn’t live up to the style of the bag, but a very good looker for the price.

 

Of course separates like these give lots of scope for mixing an matching with your existing wardrobe, and for my second look I did just that with the pants.  I paired them with a poet blouse and my usual sneaks.

I love these pants, comfy, perfect length and with pockets!  YES!  This look would take me out for casual lunch or early evening drinks and I have to confess I’m very tempted to make a permanent place in my closet for them ;O

I think they look pretty awesome with my See By Chloe sandals too…

  1. You were born to wear leopard. Definitely, keep those pants. Not only do they look fabulous, you wouldn’t want your sandals to be lonely, now would you? By the way, are you sporting cobalt blue on your pedicure? THAT is my favorite pedicure color. Specifically, Blue My Mind, by OPI.

  2. Kindly explain to me what makes this a poet shirt? I thought poet shirts had to have the overblown sleeves, and a ruffle at the cuff. a la Lord Byron. But what do I know?

  3. You look stunning , Sarah! Gorgeous rock girl! And classy! And chillaxing (on the bench) 🙂
    Love all the looks! Can’t stop looking at the pictures… So nice and inspiring… Thank you Sarah.
    Please keep blogging.
