Unless you’ve hidden under a rock, you’ll be aware of the social media commotion last week surrounding the release of the premium denim threads from Bohemian Traders.
Yes they arrived with a justified BANG.
All perfect pieces for every girls Autumn Winter wardrobe.
This lucky-duck aka ME was delighted to be on board for the action.
You can read last weeks post here.
Can I just interrupt transmission by sharing my hilarious Instagram faux pas that happened last week first though ?…
I was sitting
half watching TV on Wednesday evening, answering comments on FB and IG (as you do). The lovely Karen from Styleloving2 left me a gorgeous comment, I excitedly typed my reply and used the #luckyduck hashtag – only auto-correct decided that #luckyduck would be way more fun (and cause Bev to spit her wine out) if it changed my hashtag #luckyf*ck 😉 😉 😉
I know, cheeky auto-correct….so cheeky that it got DELETED
Now trust me, when the need arises I can curse like a dockers daughter (no malice intended to dockers daughters), but I try not to curse on social media, it’s not my thing.
The moral of the story is: more haste, less speed Bev and never underestimate auto-correct – it’s got a fabulous sense of humour!
Back to it..
If you already follow IMS – you know I’ve long surpassed the flirtation stage with Bohemian Traders and advanced to full-time #fangirl status. Up until this point they could do no wrong in my eyes.
Now? They are legends.
They have nailed jeans with the curvy woman in mind.
I can honestly say they’re BEST jeans I’ve had on my butt.
Which I why I’m talking BT denim two weeks in a row.
And because I like giving YOU what you ask for. Over the past week, I’ve received so many wonderful requests from you to show the indigo denim jeans (that I mentioned having in my hot and sweaty palms last week) as a comparison to the distressed version – as I know this look isn’t for everyone.
Oh and one last reason (not that I need one 😉 ) – my thunder thighs LOVE dark denim.
Although the slimming effect that indigo gives is purely ‘illusion’ – it works a treat on my pear-shaped butt and thighs.
Like last week, I’ll style the jeans three ways:
The Night Out
Living on the cost is pretty cruisy, so when it comes to dressing up, I always opt for darker colours in more casual clothes. I feel this meets the brief and lets me get away with wearing my heels without standing out like a sore thumb.
Indigo skinny Jean* (wearing size 32) $129.00 Bohemian Traders | Denim Bandeau Shirt (wearing M) $129.00 Country Road | Bracelets and Clutch Mimco (clutch now gone to sale try DFO) | The Muse Shoetie $299.00 Mimco | Sunnies Dissh
OTS and I are massive buddies. Yes I’m still completely obsessed; which is why I will be wearing it at every given opportunity for the foreseeable future.
Although this combination is quite ‘safe’ the bare shoulders give it a sexier edge and the heel is showing a bit a flesh too – making it a transeasonal crowd pleaser.
Anyhoo, somehow I feel more casual wearing indigo than I do black – maybe its softer on the skin?
Sizing on the Indigo Jean
If you read last weeks post, you’ll see I was wearing a 30 in the distressed denim. The lovely folk over at BT sent me both sizes (I was unsure how they would fit my tush). Now I’ve worn both, I prefer the fit of the size 30. The 32 are slightly too roomy on the waist (I’ve hitched them up a few times) and after a few hours the legs have relaxed a little too much for me.

There is no going past a crisp white shirt and denim. It suits my classic style personality to perfection.
For me its the outfit that can take you almost anywhere.
My fall-back outfit of choice.
This look works great with simply accessories, a heel, your favourite statement handbag and sunnies.
For off-duty casual style try adding your favourite sneakers and a long colourful scarf to the mix.
If shirts don’t float your boat, swap the shirt for a simple white tee.
When the mercury drops, throw over your favourite linen jacket or go full on double denim.
Everyone should source and own the perfect denim threads.
A great pair of jeans offer so much to your wardrobe, both casual and dressy.
Denim is a basic that we all need to nail.
So if you haven’t found your treasured pair yet – persevere.
Because when you do, they open up a whole new world of wardrobe possibilities!
Tell me girls, what’s your favourite label for Jeans? Go on confess, how many pairs do you own?
