Today I'm Wearing

10/05/2012 15:21 | Updated 10 July 2012

I've been waiting for what seems like forever to wear these jeans! I bought them a few months ago and I'm so thrilled to be wearing them today. I'm sure most of you who follow me on Maison Vogue can tell by now that I am in love with the colour mint green (it looks just like my favourite ice cream minus the chocolate chips haha!). Coloured jeans are quite daring for me and are not something I would usually go for (although I did opt for a pair in electric blue pair last year). I usually like to stick to variations of black and charcoal, and in fact, even the blue jeans I own are in dark navy. So mint green is quite a stretch!

The navy blue leather jacket is from Gucci Kids. And no, that was not a typo...I am indeed wearing Gucci Kids Size/Age 12! Wearing navy blue is a nice contrast to wearing black leather in the warmer months as it's not as harsh.

Ladies, if you are short and petite like me, try the kids' collections! I am not joking, if you are small you will definitely fit! You will find the same or similar items at a small fraction of the price they would be charging in the adults' collections -especially in designer wear!

Useful Tips:
1. Coloured jeans are not difficult to pull off! Just choose a colour that suits you and your skin tone!
(i.e. I have tried red and it doesn't suit me as well as green or blue- so don't force it!).

2. Petite Ladies: If you want something from the regular women's section and cannot find it or it is breaking the bank, then hop over to the kids section and see if they have something similar in what you want! More often than not, in designer wear, the kids' section is a shrunken version of the adults' section- not just in size, but in price tag too!
