Are you bored of seeing me wearing my The Kooples shorts yet? I hope not, as I just adore them and they are definitely my go to piece of clothing when I haven't a clue what to wear. I teamed them with a navy shirt and my favourite little plum bag to compliment the tones of my new vintage shoes, I still can't believe that I managed to find such a beautiful pair of shoes for such a bargain price! Today I also wore my new perfume for the first time, which I bought using a Debenhams voucher I was recently gifted with at a press event. I'm not really one to wear perfume, but recently I've been thinking about developing my personal style by finding a fragrance which fits into it, so after a few trips to Debenhams to sample various perfumes, I decided that Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle was perfect for me. It's musky, deep and warm with hints of vanilla - exactly what I was looking for in a fragrance. I've been wearing the perfume for over eight hours now, and it's hardly faded which is just lovely. I'm so very happy with my purchase. What's your signature perfume? And how do you think I styled my vintage shoes? Love, Jazzabelle.

  1. Lovely outfit - I always think that navy and plum are a really good, warm combination, and they match your shoes perfectly! My signature perfume is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - it's a warm, soft scent - not too sweet and not too strong which is perfect for me. Like yours it lasts for ages too which is good, though it's not overpowering like some women's perfumes are, so much so that when you get close to them you start to choke on the high concentration of chemicals in the air! Like the shoes with the litte socks too - vintage but still modern.

  2. Love the styling of the shoes. I'll never get bored of those shorts! My signature scent is also Dior, it's Addict and I've been wearing it for years. It's very deep and distinctive and I get a lot of compliments on it, and after all these years I can still smell it, so it's perfect :) xx

  4. The shoes are gorgeous! I really love the way you've styled them and the plum bag really pops. I wish my signature scent was Dior! My first perfume love has to be Dior pure poison, but it's too heavy for me to wear during the day :( Dior do have some gorgeous scents though

  5. I LOVE the tones in this outfit! My signature fragrance is definitely Chloe by Chloe, it's beautiful! :)

  7. Still searching for that PERFECT scent, I wear Clarins eau de Gardins (??) or something like that but its too musky for me... I'm a light, fresh kinda gal :)
    You're looking lovely, you work the buttoned up shirt look so well! Very jealous of your ability to pull it off
    It would be mine
    Dior Poison bottles are amazing

  8. I love your outfits! I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now, and I find your posts so inspiring and pure in a way, because you always give it that personal touch. I guess that makes you special! My signature perfume is Chloé Signature - I simply adore it. It's sweet but fresh at the same time, very light and you smell like you just stepped right out of a hot bath.

  9. Ah Jazmine you gorgeous thing - I adore your hair bow, and I'm very jealous of your lovely long legs!

  14. I love the outfit! So pretty, wish I was wearing that right now.

  17. My go-to evening perfume is Versace Pink Crystal. It's sexy and you only need the tiniest squirt as it's quite potent so it lasts ages. I call it my pulling perfume :P My go-to day scent has to be either Next Just Pink or Per Una. All my perfumes are pink! Maybe you should collect by colours? My friend was saying the other day all hers are blue!

  18. Super chic as always. You are so good at thrifting for sure.

  19. I love Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel for everyday and a bottle of No. 5 I got for my birthday is reserved for special events only! I love the new Givenchy perfume though, so may have to pick some up soon. I usually am just attracted to pretty bottles though!

  20. The shorts look fantastic as always. And I do love the way you've styled those shoes too; when I saw that you had bought them I was looking forward to seeing what you would do with them. They look great with this bag.
    I would love to know where these charity shops are that you're going to! The ones near me definitely don't offer such prizes as the pieces you find!
    And I went to the V&A yesterday to see three fantastic exhibitions (the japanese fashion one, I recommend) - I looked out for you, but didn't see you there though!

  30. I think this is one of my favourite outfits from you! You look so comfortable & even confident (I know you're not so much, but you damn should be!)
    The only perfume I wear is Chanel no.5 so I think it's a signature smell of mine! xo.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Still can't get over how gorgeous those shoes are and how much of a bargain they were! They look perfect with your shorts!
    I don't really have a signiture scent, I switch between so many. Constantly getting new ones for Christmas and birthdays. My all time favourite one is Coco Madamoiselle. I save that for nights outs as it so expensive!

  37. I absolutely love the shorts, not bored of seeing them at all...the whole outfit is gorgeous! Loving the vintage shoes too. My signature scent used to be Chanel Chance but I've recently been wearing Daisy by Marc Jacobs...I think I might be going back to Chanel though soon :)

  38. I'm definitely not bored of seeing the shorts! They're gorgeous and I actually find it really refreshing to see a blogger use the same item in a few posts as it's great to see all the different ways you style it.

    I have quite a few perfumes that I swap between depending on my mood! At the moment though, I'm loving YSL Parisienne, Lola by Marc Jacobs and a L'occitane rose perfume.

  41. I have a sample of that Dior perfume and I love it! My signature scent used to be Alien by Thierry Mugler but I've run out :( I have a bottle of DKNY Be Delicious which was a gift from someone but I find it a bit light for my tastes. I love your bag by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your outfit and will never get tired of those shorts. One of our presenters here at work wears Poison and I love it.

  43. My favourite scent is Miss Dior Chérie, would've bought it just for the bottle itself, but the smell is so nice, and full of flowers.
    Love those shorts, not getting bored of them at all!

  45. Love this outfit! See you're wearing the Digbeth COW shoes :) The original Dior Hypnotic Poison is my signature fragrance! I've loved it ever since one of my best friend's older sister had it when we were about 12. Might have to have a sniff of that version though! xxx

  48. Such stunning tones, I adore the plum bag and the vintage shoes are such a real find.

    I have always had a fascination with perfume be it the scents themselves or the hoarding of bottles. I always admire those who have a signature scent and stick to it xxx

  49. oooh jazmine i love that hair bow on you!!! stunning! my signature perfume is givenchy Hot Couture, its a pretty old one but you can still get it and it kinda smells like sugary chocolate..sounds awful but its lovely :) x

    ReplyDelete
  50. gorgeous outfit and I love how the colour of the bag brings it all together. My favourite perfume is coco mademoiselle. but if im after something a little lighter I love Moroccan rose from the body shop. I have the original dior poison which is lush

  51. I think the outfit is just perfect for the shoes, it all just sits nicely. I agree with Mat that shirt is great! I'm a Helmut Lang perfume girl, sadly they don't make it anymore and i've spent 5 years (no exaggeration) looking for a replacement! I'm glad you've found a nice scent! xx

    ReplyDelete
  52. Um, I need your legs please! My signature scent is Vera Wang's Princess it's light (unlike me), sweet, pink & in a ridiculously girly bottle! What more would I need? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  53. loving the all black attire!

    the older marc jacobs Daisy seems to be my signature scent for the moment, found at a yard sale for 10 bucks nearly new!

  57. Great outfit! Love how you've picked out the colours in the shoes but very subtly :)
    Glad you decided on a perfume.. my signature scent is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, although I can't really smell it any more, I think I've got too used to it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just started following this blog, I'm amazed at what great things you can find in the charity shops! xo

  59. You look gorgeous, Jazz! I love those shorts.

    I adore perfume and wear too much of it every day. At the moment I have Paul Smith Rose and Cacharel Amor Amor on the go... I like fruity, floral, light scents. The total opposite of you, but I think you chose the exact right scent for your style! x

  62. I'm so bad with perfume, mine is usually a cheapy bodyshop one (probably not something I should admit to!). Well done on having the patience to keep going back to look for that signature scent!

    ReplyDelete
  63. i love perfume and finding the perfect one is such a great feeling! i cant believe you got that bag for a £1 i absolutely love it!!! x

    ReplyDelete
  64. Loving the entire outfit, the shorts are fab as is the bag.

    I wear the very same perfume and also Love by Chloe. I'm trying to tone it down with perfumes, I wear too much and want to have just one signiature perfume.

  66. Lovely, lovely combination - it makes the shoes really stand out. And I know what you mean about favorite shorts. It's so easy, (especially in this mixed weather) to feel as though you're still making a concession to summer while also keeping warm with tights!

    ReplyDelete
  67. oh jazmine, you are SO pretty! i've always loved perfumes, so i have a quite a few. my current favourite is the chloé perfume, but one of my most prized possessions is the coco mademoiselle scent by chanel. vanilla smells lovely, so i'm sure yours is the perfect choice xxx

    ReplyDelete
  68. Lovely outfit! Hypnotic Poison is my favourite perfume. I think it's quite sophisticated and complex, and I'm not a fan of citrussy perfumes.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oooh ! love the outfit! You are so beautiful!

  70. the plum and navy compliment each other so well. Lovely outfit:) x

  71. You are just too gorgeous girly! I always wear Daisy Marc Jacobs and people are always saying things like 'why does that girl smell like you?' so I guess it works!

    Love Tweet

  72. I love love LOVE Balenciaga parfume, I would like to think of it as my signature smell, as not many ppl use it cuz it's hard to get, it makes it that much more special :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think you've worn those gorgeous shoes rather nicely. I love how chic you look especially with the addition of the bag. Good going!

    I don't often wear any fragrance. Once in a while though, I'll Snick into my sister's room an use some of her Marc Jacobs Lola. I also like the smell of Red Door by Elizabeth Arden. Timeless.

  74. Jazz, your outfit is amazing and I love those bargainous shoes. Love that you finally bought the perfume, you've been after that for ages! Even the colours on the bottle are very you :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Flawless, as usual.

    My signature perfume is Nina Ricci's Nina. I've been looking for another to change for a while but I haven't found one as good. Maybe I'll try Dior's Hypnotic Poison!

    Stay lovely,
    Pi
