Lust-haves: Peach Plum Pear.

I've decided to make my "Lust-haves" posts a weekly tradition, since we all need a little pick-me-up from the Monday Blues (although today is a public holiday, so let's just call it a cure for the rainy blues this week). Going through my closet, I've noticed that muted colours like grey, black, and dark blues dominate my outfits. So, this past week I've been poring the Internets for the perfect pair of plum or pink coloured jeans to zest up my outfits, a la Alexa Chung (who can do no wrong in my eyes).


Word on the blogging streets is that US denim brand J Brand have come out with a bright coloured jeans range, perfected suited for colour-hungry shoppers like me.  Apparently they've already sold over 100 000 pairs in the past few months.

Not wanting to wait until the Australian summer to get my hands on a pair, when cheap, poorly made, unimaginative and overpriced copies inundate our shopping centres, I've made a wishlist:


Moto Pink Jamie Skinny Jeans from Topshop (£40) - They're sold out of my size (Boo!)

ASOS Rose Skinny Jeans (£35) - Also out in my size

J Brand Low Rise Skinny Capri Jeans from Shopbop ($170.63)

BDG Cigarette Mid-Rise Jean in Teal from Urban Outfitters ($US54) - Yes I know it's not plum but I'm easily distracted, and look at it! But it's out of my size so right now I'm feeling like the world is conspiring against me.

BDG Cigarette High-Rise Jean in Berry from Urban Outfitters ($US58) - also comes in yellow

Cheap Monday Colour Zip Low Jean from Urban Outfitters (On sale for $US19.99!) - You say sale and I say buy.

Lee Jetts Cranberry Jeans from Glue ($149.99)

Sass & Bide The Revolution in Mulberry from MyCatwalk ($190)

Ksubi Aged Pink Super Skinny from General Pants ($199.95)
