The White Dress Shop

Here at 1511th, we are so excited about this – today marks the d-day for The White Dress Shop. It is officially opened for business. It is an online boutique where bridal inspiration meets the uber fashion chic. It is all about stylish, elegant and tasteful white pieces that would work so well any season or occasion.

Cultivated by her love for all things fashionable, The White Dress Shop embodies the modern girl’s style and taste. Each item is carefully selected based on the things she loves to wear. The website showcases gorgeous designs from some very talented designers with amazing styles.

TWDS is owned by one of my closest, super stylish (her head will pop) and elegant friend Onada, by the way she is also a huge wedding and lifestyle photographer. Check out some of her works here.

I love all the pieces on the site and here are some blouses that would look stunning on jeans – our side of

Lia Kes Fleur De Lis Chiffon Tank - beautifully embroidered high neck silk tank which can be tucked in or casually worn over jeans. Works effortlessly for both day and night looks

Aryn K Flutter Sleeve Blouse - This Aryn K white Flutter Sleeve Blouse is a wardrobe staple and can be dressed up or down. Wear with a hot mini, skinny jeans.

Aryn K Royal Blue Blouse - This Aryn K vintage inspired blouse is just gorgeous and looks great dressed down with jeans or dressed up with a pencil skirt. Add a brooch and a belt to turn it up a notch.

Laura Ann Romantic Victorian Ruffle Tank The beauty of this tank is in it’s simplicity. Take a perfect fit tank, add pretty victorian inspired ruffles, bow and chain and you have a top that would look just as perfect with skinnies or shorts as it would with a sexy high waisted skirt or jeans!

This handmade tank is awash with fabulous detail.
From the collar with the frayed edges to the exquisite
chain and bow detailing, this top will take you from the boardroom to the bar!


Deciding on the brands to carry I must say it is a hard decision to make - There are way too many brands that fit like gloves, out there. Without losing any more sleep (for now), we have decided to include MiH jeans; well it is number one on our list.

Made in Heaven is a British brand from the 60s, named so because its one goal was to provide the most perfect fitting, bum enhancing, leg lengthening jeans around. Today MiH has been rebranded and revived to suit today's generation while keeping its elegance and staying true to the name. MiH Jeans come in six cuts so there is something to flatter the figure in every way and it would appeal to women of all ages- from the young fashionista who would appreciate the quirkiness of owning a pair of vintage-inspired pair of jeans to the older working women who would appreciate the classic, streamlined look that can be achieved by wearing a pair of MiH jeans, it is certainly a label that crosses all boundaries.

About MiH from people in the know:

“Fabulous cuts. Fabulous washes. Not only do they fit perfectly, but they are comfortable too. And they make your bum look great!” Arabella Greenhill, Senior Fashion Editor, Marie Claire

“I was so impressed looking at all the different styles and colours that make up MiH. Chloe has done a great job reviving the brand. It still has a cool retro style, but it also feels cleverly modern, a balance that is really hard to get right.” Lucy bond, Senior Fashion Editor, InStyle.

“High-waisted jeans elongate the body, which is great for me as I’m short. They also look more chic and polished than my regular jeans”. Amanda Ross, UK Vogue.

Ciara in J Brand

Ciara spotted shopping at Yves Saint Lauren in J Brand Skinnys, white crop, cropped denim and the gorgeous, delicious Christian Louboutin Yellow Suede Declic Pumps. Not a fan of double denim, but this works quiet well for her. Ok, off to do my 350 sit-ups a day......not easy but I should be able to wear a crop top if I wanted to not because of other reasons like the big jelly belly.

Hint: Wearing coloured pumps on a white tee/vest top and jeans adds a certain glamour to the casual look.

Current/Elliott Skinnies

Stylists, Emily Current & Meritt Elliott with their love for vintage denim, met with friend Serge Azria, his innovative ideas, financial backing and abracadabra! Current/Elliott was born in summer of 2008! Their belief is dressing without rules and mixing high pieces and low pieces to create a fun and fearless elegance that is uniquely theirs. Serge Azria is the CEO, creative director, silent partner and owner of the brand.

Current/Elliot is all about customized vintage, breath ability matched with carefree femininity. The fit is more flattering for a woman’s body and does not sacrifice the comfort. They’re flattering in a rugged, relaxed way, while still allowing the wearer to look trendy and put together.

To be honest, Current/Elliot denim collection would make any woman commit major vices, the need to buy a pair in every single style - Gluttony. In sizes, most of their jeans run large compared to standard designer sizing and it is advised to size down one size (the joy of having a size "26" that fits so well on my size 27 waist is amazing). Alternative, if desired, you can keep your regular size to create a slouchy looser fitting jean. Either ways, their jeans are a pleasure to wear as they are extremely flattering to any figure.

Here are some of our favorite at 1511th....

Ciara, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian in the 1968 Loved Destroyed Skinny Jean - Edgy simple look. Do be careful with the rips because they really do have a mind of their own.

Things we know

In a short space of time, Jeans have evolved a lot in fashion, improved in style and quality and can show off your figure to its best. They have become hugely important piece of clothing in every woman's wardrobes.

But getting that so-right perfect fit is alot trickier because of the many jeans styles around and magazines that dictate everybody should wear this or that style, when the truth is we all have different shapes, so no one style is going to suit everyone.

Finding the right jeans to hide what you want to hide and show off your best features could be a mission but getting the wrong cut or style can do you no favours at all

Along the way, we intend on giving a few tips of things to avoid when and things we know about jeans, hope this helps.
