Following on from my style confidence workshop, I decided to revamp my wardrobe starting with my jeans! I struggle with jeans, firstly I have long legs AND a long back, most high street jeans which I try on are either poorly fitting or expose my underwear everytime I sit down, not an attractive sight I can assure you!!
Simplybe offer a range of fashionable clothes for women size 14-32, and they have a small but ever growing Tall range of clothes! I was very excited to be able to try a couple of items from their range! I rarely get the chance to shop without the boys with me, and I find Boo loves to open the changing room curtain usually when I am half way into pair of trousers, Simplybe offers a great mail order fashion service (avoiding the changing room horrors!) and they have just opened their first standalone store at Liverpool One.
I chose a pair of WOW boot cut jeans I have to confess that some of the attraction to these jeans (other than the long leg lengths offered) was the fact they offered some ‘tummy flattening’. In honesty I wasn’t sure what to expect, and tried them on a little warily. I was worried I may have ordered the wrong size or they’d make my tummy look even larger! Trying them on I instantly liked the fact they were well fitted around my thighs and when they were done up they were high waisted. The tummy panels really did support me, but weren’t restrictive, if anything they just reminded me to stand up straight!! The jeans really flatter my pear shape, making me look really curvy!
I also chose a great chunky knitted cardigan in chocolate brown by Joe Browns, I liked the buckle detail, but in truth I struggle to keep the buckles done up. The cardigan is very lightweight, but very cosy! I love the hood, and I feel a bit like little red-riding hood whenever I wear it up (yes I know the cardigan isn’t red!) It is a great length on me, and I think very feminine.
I teamed the jeans and cardigan with a long line mustard yellow vest, for an easy look to keep my looking and feeling great while out and about with the children this Autumn/Winter 2011.
