Denim Fever

Sexy Boyfriend JeansDenim is one of those magical things that is always in style, it changes colour, it develops, it improves in many ways with new technology. I can honestly say I am not a fan of the latest trend or rather last year’s trend of skinny jeans, as quite frankly, they only look good on girls with slender legs and no bum. I am neither.

I am very curvaceous: I have both hips, thighs and substantial bottom. Skinny, spandex based jeans or “jeggings” are worn across the board and its a style that is not suitable for everyone. In fact, some of the most fit women I know will not wear them due to their unflattering nature. If you are a person that can wear long tunic style shirts, skinny is fine. For someone like me that needs layering or shorter shirts to minimize the wide section, these jeans just don’t cut it.

Last week a pair of jeans came into the store that were not stretchy and not skinny. I took a chance that they might work and was completely overwhelmed to discover they fit perfectly and sat comfortably on my hips. These magic jeans “Sexy Boyfriend” by GAP, is my ideal fit. The look may not be for everyone, but for someone as shapely as I am in the leg, you might like these!

I naturally had to make the joke that now I too, had a sexy boyfriend to go home with 😉

I found two pairs of vibrant flats by H&M that I hmm’d and haaa’d over but couldn’t bring myself to pay $6.99 a pair when I wasn’t 100% sure I would wear those particular colours. I did luck out however in this beautiful crochet style dress by American Eagle Outfitters. I was even more impressed when I tried it on the next day for work and I can honestly say it is now one of the most comfortable, feminine and all around beautiful dresses I own. Continue Reading
