Bijoux Collection Featuring Olivia Burton Watches

Hello friends!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! I’ll be updating you all on what motherhood has been like in my next post (mainly completely sleep deprived and I’m able to do this post thanks to some wonderful help that came in the last few days!), but in the meantime, I wanted to quickly share with you something fabulous that Jillian and I received in the mail recently! :D

Before I continue though, I wanted to have a quick chat about brand integrity. I know alot of you wonder, if Jillian and I just talk about products we get paid to talk about. The answer is NO. You can be assured, for those who have wondered and asked, we ONLY ever feature pieces that we stand by 100%. Which means, we will only ever share with you brands, accessories, and products that we LOVE completely. We are not into collaborations or features where we would never buy/pay money for or wear on our own accord. So you can relax and know that our posts are 100% genuine whether they are sponsored or not (most are not as we are just two excited sisters who have a passion for beauty and want to share it with the rest of you out there!), as we only ever partner with brands that we know you will LOVE as much as we do! Here at Two Threaded Poppies, we are completely about quality, and being genuine, real, and authentic!

Anyway, onto the stuff we got in the mail recently (ie. The watches pictured below) :D

As you all already may or may not have noticed, Jillian and I adore pieces that are timeless, classic, and beautiful. And if you have been paying attention to our instagram feed, you will know that even the time pieces we choose to wear have to fit under that umbrella. So you can imagine how over the moon we were to receive some of Olivia Burton’s watches from their new range! :D Now, from our instagram, you know I already own the Big Dial rose gold and tan leather piece, and Jillian already owns the Midi Dial in Rose Gold and White leather. Both purchased from Bijoux Collection Australia and since we shared the photos of those, alot of you went out to buy and find these pieces to join our Olivia Burton love which made us so happy as this beautiful boutique brand is so underrated! We are mindful of the many other popular fashion watch brands on the market these days, but Olivia Burton watches are so gorgeously feminine, vintage, and classic looking. They have pieces that range from the simple and minimalistic , to the more opulent kind with floral embellishments  – ALL of which never get too over the top. Always remaining timeless and classic!

We’re such fans that owning a second piece each, has been a no brainer! Especially with the launch of their new range.

I ended up getting this one below (the Big Dial Rose Gold with Grey Leather – pink and grey ALWAYS go well together!!):

And Jillian ended up getting this one (The Big Dial Gold with black leather – to follow in her usual love for BLACK :D ):

Thank you so much Bijoux for our beautiful new watches (and the cute surprise pearl earrings in our package! Totally unexpected!!) And to our readers, Bijoux offers $10 off your first purchase with them, so use that if you decide to get yourself an Olivia Burton piece too! I’m already eyeing the Power Blue and Rose Gold one, as well as the Black Dial and Gold if I could get my hands on another :P )

OOTD: Faded Dream

1

I don’t know, but there’s just something about the colour of lavender that makes me weak and impulsive. When I saw this dress, it was like love at first sight. I was lucky enough to grab it before it quickly sold out everywhere!

This is like the epitome of feminine and sophistication. I must admit, I felt pretty classy in this dress haha. And I paired the subtle shade with neutral tones to harmonise with the lilac. When going for this type of shade, keep it light and simple – don’t over do it.

I reckon this outfit is perfect for rocking at a wedding (ceremony and/or reception!)

OOTD: Classy Casual

2 Sorry for the mini blog hiatus! Jenny has been feeling under the weather as of late and I have been super busy with work and other exciting projects that I can’t wait to share with you all very soon! Today I decided to share with you all a cute little number that I would love to wear on a more casual occasion, whether it is dinner with friends or your partner, or to a casual low-key party…

Jeans. They are the epitome of casual. But with this ensemble, I have paired my trusty navy skinny jeans from Bardot and dressed it up to create a more casual chic appearance. To do so, I wore my fave minimalistic heels from Lipstik, stacked on my rings and went full on with my hair and make up courtesy of Amy Chan Hair and Make-Up.

To add some texture to my outfit, I wore a white crochet top from H&M and I stuck to white to match my heels and make it stand out in contrast to the navy. And what goes really well with white and navy together? …Brown. So I finished the look with my mini brown satchel!

OOTD: Nautical in the City

ootd_jenny_nautical_0012

Hello everyone! I’m finally back with a new post. So sorry for my absence of late, but I’ve been really under the weather the past few weeks, and I’m slowly regaining enough energy and health to start getting back into work in the last couple of days. Even now, I’m still not 100% so do bear with me! The good news is that Jillian has been regularly posting on the blog and instagram in my absence so hopefully you’ve been enjoying her summer content! :D

I wanted to share with you an outfit I’ve put together that is 100% nautical inspired, but totally suitable to be worn not just by the sea, beach, or water, but also in the city as I live in a big metropolitan city myself :)

As you all would know, blue and white have always been style staple colours of mine, so it is always fun to play with new pieces that experiment with these shades such as this Yacht21 off the shoulder striped top, and this super comfy and affordable pair of white jeans from Uniqlo, paired with one of my favourite blue bags and zara heels :)

Now, alot of people think that off the shoulder tops are only for slim people, and that white jeans should only be worn if you have stick skinny legs – not true!! I am not afraid to admit that I have size 36.5″ hips (crazy I know, but I just want to show you that its not about size – it is all about finding the right cut and fabrics when it comes to shopping for clothes that really suit your body). I love that these jeans from uniqlo were so soft, had stretchy material, and its waistline was low, but not too close to the hip so it was very flattering. And paired with this really elegant off the shoulder striped top from Yacht21, it meant that my less-than-ideally-toned arms were well conceived but still showing enough skin in all the flattering areas like the shoulders and the forearms without ever stepping into the ‘skanky’ territory :P As you would all know, our brand here at Two Threaded Poppies is ALL about classiness, elegance and style while being appropriately modest :) Yes! It’s totally possible to be stylishly womanly and beautiful without needing to wear clothes that make you look cheap or sleazy. And trust me when I say that guys love this kind of style. While they look at women who dress less than appropriately, they remember ladies who dress with class and elegance like Audrey Hepburn :)

Less is more! :)

For those wanting to find where Yacht21 is sold, head on over to THIS POST to find all the outlets and places online you can buy this piece :D

Again, as always we want to say and reassure you that all brands we features are carefully curated and chosen by Jillian and myself very selectively. We promise we don’t just simply feature and showcase pieces we don’t believe in. They must always adhere to the Two Threaded Poppies standard of beautiful aesthetics (chic, elegant, feminine), quality, and service :)

Enjoy the photos ladies and have a lovely rest of the week!! :D

OOTD: Little Black Dress

4

I hope you all had a great start to the new year and that the holidays were well enjoyed! Both Jenny & I have had a busy start to 2015, yet it’s been great. We’re slowly working on some exciting things which we can’t wait to share with you in the near future :) In the meantime, I’ve put together a nice little OOTD number for some inspiration when you don’t really know what to wear or how to style things for a special occasion…

If you’re going for that minimalist kind of look, when you want to look nice and classic, yet not too overdressed and flashy, then this is a nice approach which I have put together. This is something I wore to my friend’s 21st birthday recently and I just wanted to keep it clean and simple, so I chose this cute little black dress from The Fifth Label that I fell in love with when I saw it and paired it with minimal heels in white to give the outfit some contrast.

Going further along with the contrasting theme, I added a neutral clutch that was an in between off white and cream just to balance out the black and brighten up the outfit a little more. For jewellery, again, I kept it simple and wore my favourite pieces from Wanderlust & Co.

And there you have it! This is how I would style my little black dress to a party or special occasion if I’m going for something a little more muted and subtle.
