The Meghan trouser from JD Williams

Thursday, October 11, 2018



Early October on the islands and we've had some fabulous autumn sunshine. I've been holding out for a sunny day to showcase my fab new trews from JD Williams, not gifted I may add, but bought after wearing them in the advert (see here). The Meghan trouser is the perfect crop length for my height (5'5") and the proportions are just right for my hour glass shape. I love the high waist which fits snugly at the right place too. 


The secret of the great fit of these trousers is the amount of stretch, including the Magisculpt panel around the tummy plus the secret stretch waistband (read more on the website here). These are classed as everyday wear and I have to say that yes, I could wear these every day as comfort-wise they deliver a 10. Sorry if this is sounding like a huge sales pitch, but if you'd seen me waltzing around in them, you'd understand how great they made me feel.


The sleek silhouette of the trouser acted as a plain canvas for me to play dress-up with this vintage frothy blouse. The shocking pink worked in harmony with the cobalt of the trouser which led me to finishing the style story with my pop art shoes, preloved and last seen here.



Johnny, the choreographer on the JD Williams set, had a phrase that he bandied about to prompt the right moves on the day - "super-sassy" - and that's how this outfit makes me feel. 



The slanted hip pockets are real, not imitation, and yet don't spoil the smooth outline of the trouser. Golly, I do sound like a marketing guru here, don't I! My silver buckled belt is by H&M, blue ring is preloved and pink ring was a gift, old faithful sunglasses are by Quay Australia.


Frills and froth are also falling into the remit of super-sassy. I love this vintage blouse, but tend not to wear it too often as I like to keep it as a special piece. The metallic necklace is another charity shop find costing the outrageous sum of £1.


I bought these pop art courts by Chockers in Harrogate in April, a happy find in a charity shop and only worn twice so far. Their story may well end here though, as after the photo shoot, during the course of my everyday work, the heel came off. I've seen this happen as a comedy feature in a movie, but didn't quite appreciate it the same when it happened to me. Luckily I always have several pairs of shoes at work so at least I didn't have to wobble about for long. Next time I go to the mainland I plan to take these to the cobblers to see if he can fix them.


Super-sassy me.


My footnote has to be that I promise you, my lovely readers, that I'm not on commission here. I'm about to order my next pair of these fabulous trousers and can't decide if it's to be the red or the green...


Have a great week!

    1. Cheers Suzanne. The heel coming off did feel like a bit of a comedy moment, immediately followed by the realisation that my shoes were done. Hey ho!

  3. A fab pair of trousers and I love the cobalt blue and shocking pink together. Definitely super- sassy! Such a shame about the shoe; hope you can get it fixed. It sounds as if it may need glueing back on...

    I love your necklace and what a bargain!

    1. Super-sassy is the new watchword for Polly and I as I prance around in front the camera. Goodness knows if the heel would be strong enough even if it got fixed, but I'm sure gonna try!

    1. I don't think they knew what a great bit of marketing it would be by putting me in those red trousers, but I just fell in love with them the minute I zipped them up. Hehehe, pure sass, eh? Hurrah!

  5. Love the look (and sound!) of those cropped trousers. You look "super sassy" wearing them, and the contrast of the cobalt blue and hot pink is fabulous. What a shame about the shoes, hope you can get them fixed! xxx

    1. The whole outfit really rated a 10 in my book. I love vintage, don't get me wrong, but a great fitting trouser just can't be beaten! Fingers crossed that the cobbler will be able to mend the wonky heel.

  6. I love cropped trousers, never wear anything else when I wear trousers. Love the blouse too, it looks like a vintage 70s piece.

    1. I'm a big fan of cropped trousers too, but usually they're too long for me. I think you're right - it's probably 70's - fab isn't it?

  7. I'd be totally fine if you were on commission Anna! Or were gifted or sponsored to show us. I still trust you and know you are honest. It's ok to make some money off of something you give us readers for free! Enjoy your evening!

    1. Thanks for that Julia. I suppose I just want to show that yes, I'm honest in my appraisal and have integrity, rather than being motivated by the big buck.

      Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Love these cobalt blue trousers - such a useful colour! And they look amazing on you, Anna! I used to have an orange/yellow/pink blouse like that - my L used to call it my Sibyl Fawlty blouse!

    1. This type of blouse does have associations for us both with the likes of Sibyl or Yootha Joyce which I totally love. Dressing up can be great fun when we're paying homage to these fab icons. Imagine someone referring to a piece as being very Sheila or totally Anna - what praise!

  9. Oh goodness! The closeup of your great pumps captured my heart! I love the fun print and WOW does your outfit sing the praises of a blue and pink color combination! Perhaps we all ought to look to our shoes more often for color inspiration.
    You're so authentic and trustworthy Anna! You promote first from your heart so I'm comfortable when I get on board with you.

    1. I will mourn the loss of these fabulous shoes if I have to, but let's wait to see what the cobbler says first. Thanks for your vote of support (Jude?), it means a lot to me. It takes years to earn trust from one's readership and here I have two responses today pledging theirs. Thank you!

      Have a super weekend!

  11. Lots of sass there - and those trews definitely look high end/designer. No creasing and they fit like they were made to measure. I love that frothy pink blouse, makes me nostalgic for one very similar I had a few years ago.

    1. These are indeed made to measure for my frame and are great quality too - a bargain in my eyes, Gail. So you and Sheila both got rid of a frothy blouse like this? What were you thinking? Hahaha! Poor you, I'd regret losing this one too.
