Sea horses. That's what it took me to realise the delights of Sister Jane. We've featured a couple of their items before - they're stocked in ASOS and Topshop - but it wasn't until I saw their sea horse blouse in this week's Time Out, I thought to look up their own stop. Oh silly me, I've been missing out on some of the best bits, including scrumptious delights like the Living in a Cloud skirt shown above, currently on sale for a mere £19.
And did I mention the Sea horse blouse? Here you go. Even without the sea horse embellishment, this blouse would still have one of the prettiest necklines I've seen for a while. It's £45.
They have an actual physical shop too, in a gorgeous-looking converted church in Portobello in West London, making for the perfect day out: try on Sister Jane clothes, then hang out in the Travel Bookshop pretending you might bump into Hugh Grant.
Sister Jane do make dresses - I like the combo of the cut-out neckline with the fitted waist on this Fossil dress in particular (only £29!) - but I've taken more of a fancy to their separates.
Do I need an excuse to buy another sailor blouse? I'd better come up with one, as I really, really want this sailor collar blouse. It's £45.
I like the Moonrise Kingdom goes tropical feel to this Aloha bow blouse, which they've paired with a faux suede skirt. It would also look awesome alongside those Zara bedsheets I wrote about on Tuesday, though I'm not sure how the general public would respond to that ensemble.
Another thing I can't believe isn't already in my wardrobe: this geo net skirt. You get to flash a bit more leg without flashing your pants. Win. It's £55.
I've looked at a lot of coats this year but I think this Treasure Chest jacket is sneaking in right at the end to become my favourite. No sea horses here, just a classy look that's a bit different from what's on offer on the high street. And, at £85, it's within my coat budget. Nicely done Sister Jane.
