CURRENT/ ELLIOT, J.BRAND, M.I.H. and Warehouse. Time for a new boyfriend!!

I need a new boyfriend, the old one just doesn't do it for me any more. Something is not quite right.

 You see our relationship has run it's course, and the romantic spark we used to have when we were together has gone.  The love affair is over.

No, No, No, not my VHM silly, he is still very much current, well, he was last night?

It's my old Boyfriend Jeans. Now exciled to the back of the wardrobe and probably due an outing very soon to the charity shop!!

I've had these Earl Boyfriend Jeans since circa 2000.  And they have always been a trusty friend, dropping in and out of whatever current look I was wearing at the time.
But when I tried them on again recently I suddenly realised they don't work the look anymore?  In a word they look DATED!  Some might say, "well don't they look vintage"?
No.....they just look wrong.

So I have been on the hunt for a new love. Well, as any girl knows shopping for jeans can be the equivalent of a check up at the dentist. You either leave smug, no work needed, cash reasonably intact. Or has happened to me recently multiple painful visits, leaving my bank account in the red.

I started with a strong coffee, flat shoes (heels in my bag to try on) and a big smile looking forward to my new purchase.

I ended up with blisters....the flat shoes were new, and a large glass of wine, at the end of what had been a very harrowing day!

So I have made the decision to order a selection off various websites.

 The luxury of being able to try on in the privacy and comfort of my own home, and more importantly to look in MY mirror......it never lies!



Distressed Panhandle Boyfriend Jeans by CURRENT/ELLIOTT


CURRENT/ELLIOT Distressed Panhandle Jeans £275


Well I have to admit these were very good, they worked with flats, heels and ankle boots. But that price tag is just too much. My car is not worth much more for heavens sake.

Halsy High-Rise Vintage Distressed Straight Leg Jeans by MIH


MIH Halsy Jeans £190


These were just too distressed, and a bit too high rise on me. Also I wanted a slightly darker wash. Priced quite a bit lower than CURRENT/ELLIOT ones, I still felt they  were not moving in with me!

J Brand


J Brand Aiden Cropped Jeans £250

My heart did jump a beat when I tried on these lovelies......the fit, the wash, just the right amount of distressing. Yes my search was over, but, get real girl, unless my VHM
is feeling particularly generous right now, I will have to decline and fall back into Boyfriend Jeans singledom.

So that was it until a forgotton parcel arrived...forgotton because my lovely postie knows I do quite a lot of shopping, and if I am not there leaves it in my shed!!

My son picked up the note from the postie and didn't tell me.....BAD BOY. And so the
parcel wasn't discovered until I went to get my wellies, my current mode of footwear in this dreary climate.

But what a lovely surprise it was. A pair of Warehouse Boyfriend Jeans.

Warehouse Distressed Boyfriend Jeans £42

I am officially LOVED UP again. Not only is the cut, wash, and mid rise just perfect. They feel so soft and amazingly at £42 look every inch as good as the designer counterparts.

And so the empty gap in my wardrobe is filled again. And my new love interest and I are looking forward to many happy years together!

  2. Hi there, must admit I have been looking at these for ages on their website but wasnt sure what the difference is between the 2 on their website, apart from one pair looks to be a darker wash, any ideas, also how mid rise are they as I do possess a slight muffin top sadly.

    1. Hi, I went for the darker wash. I am on the shorter side and I found for me they covered up the dreaded muffin/mummy top!! If you are really long in the body they might poss be a bit low for you. Generally I find their mid rise to be quite a universal fit. But all I can say is give them a go
      jeans are a minefield!! Good Luck xx

  5. You made a good choice! It's not east buying jeans - getting just the right fit and they need to be versatile too. I love the Bob Marley quote!

  8. I ordered a straight leg jean from Gap and hope they will fit.Thinking I can just roll up the leg a bit and try with shoe boots and pumps.

  13. It's great when you find the one isn't it? And at so much better a price than the others. Your postie knows me like the DHL man knows me - he comes to my back door!

    I have all the boyfriend style jeans I could ask for but I still keep trying them on ... for research purposes only you understand.

  14. I have yet to find a good pair of boyfriend jeans. I won't give up though! Oh and in regards to your comment sorry I forgot to mention that I skipped the essence it's not necessary. I think it's a type of cooking wine though but I'm not sure. And make sure not to put too much flour unless you want the sauce to be really thick! Hope it turns out really good, and thanks for the follow!

  15. well, the pictures here speak for themselves. when someone uses the term carnage in describing an adventure it always jolts me to read between the lines. I am a lover of the out door and I believe there is no better way of doing it than in a jeep. whichever brand you ride in, the adventure is bound to be great. thank God you made it back safe and sound. adventure sport nq.
