Pawn Shop Blues

I’ve been a fan of Jacob since I was young, I would raid the Jacob Jr. section while my mother shopped at Jacob.  I really like Jacob as a brand not just because of the timeless pieces they have but the company beliefs such as using images of models in their campaigns that have not been retouched.  And when they chose to use Coco Rocha, (one of my favourite models from my hometown Richmond in their campaign last year), I was over the moon.

I placed an order for a pinstripe sleeveless blouse and gingham dress online a couple weeks ago and received it approximately 5 business days later. Ordering and checkout was an absolute breeze.  Their sizing charts were accurate and their stock seemed quite good even though many of the items were on sale. I also really liked how user friendly it was with a description, material, care instruction, and delivery and return info  section on every product.

Blouse- Jacob // Pants- Cheap Monday // Shoes- Jessica Simmpson // Belt- Dex

Dress- Jacob // Shoes- Jessica Simpson

After this photoshoot (shot by Paul and Roderick at Fotowok at the Shangri-La) I have realized that I 
a) Love putting my hands in my pockets. Seriously, every shot  I've seen  had my hands in my pockets. It's like that one time where accidentally spilled crazy glue...
b) I am attracted to patterns that make my eyes hurt if I stare too long

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I love Jacob too though its been awhile since I last shopped there!

  5. Very cute outfits! I've never hear of the Jacob clothing brand before, but I'll have to check them out because their clothes seem to be very cute, and still well made (quality is always a big issue with me).
