was quite excited to be involved in the Denim Style Challenge with Bonprix. The hardest part was settling on the two
items I would review, as there are so many lovely items of clothing found at
it did not quite work to plan, as the jeans were not my size but after some
deliberation I decided to get another model for the jeans and I could model the
coat! After all it’s nice to share a
little happiness, as my friend was grateful of a pair of new jeans in exchange for a photograph. You will just
have to imagine combining the pair of us to see how the coat and jeans would
have worked together so well!
friend is normally a size 14 but managed to fit into the size 12 straight
shaper jeans (£29.99). She was very
pleased as normally she finds it difficult finding jeans to fit comfortably as
she considers herself “shapely” (she is lovely!). In the jeans she felt special as it held her in all the right
places. After she returned to her own
jeans it felt strange without the extra support and she now feels she could not
go back to her normal brand of jeans.
The part that supports you does look a little peculiar, at first we
debated whether they were built in knickers so you would not have a line when
wearing tight jeans, but eventually we realised they were to smooth hips and
flatter abs, so a very clever design really and very flattering.
absolutely love the black double breasted jacket (£44.99), I had a
size 12 which initially I thought would be too big but with a little advice
from my friends I realised having a jumper underneath would fill the space well
and make the jacket look fabulous on me!
It is such a classic jacket that works well with jeans or a dress; it
will stand the tides of fashion and I can get years of wear out of it! My friend said it would be nice to see me in
something other than my pink raincoat and now hubbie will have to take me out
for dinner in this! My new boots
arrived from my competition win too, so I am all set to impress in this get up. The jacket is perfect to compliment your
autumn and winter wardrobe.
Bonprix gifted the
clothing but all thoughts are my own.
