This blog has been a long time coming….
I would like to introduce you to Donna Ida, the ultimate denim store. Donna Ida popped up in my local town a fair while ago and I managed to resist popping in for so-so long. This was mainly because I knew my credit card would not appreciate the visit.
On a busy Sunday afternoon I gave in, I wanted to give Donna Ida one chance to show me what they were made of. I went in with 15 minutes to spare and a VERY specific list of criteria I needed from my jeans.
- Black or Blue
- Slightly high waisted
- Skinny fit
- Wide enough for my thighs but skinny enough for my waist
- Around £150
I don’t ask for much, hey?
I explained what I was after to the Sales Assistant (who was wearing a moustache ring, and we all know I love a moustache) and she picked up one pair of jeans, in the size she thought I was. I should add here that no one can EVER guess my size right, I’m hippy but tiny on top with big boobs, so basically a total nightmare to dress.
Anyway back to the case in point, I was handed a random pair of jeans and told quite simply to squeeze into them. I really wanted to find something wrong with them, but when I looked in the mirror, they were perfect. Higher rise but well placed pockets, stretch, black denim jeans. They honestly made me look a whole size smaller and about 2 inches taller, can’t go wrong with that really. Every time I wear these jeans someone comments on how great my bum looks, or how trim I am. It’s all an illusion people, it’s the worlds greatest jeans.
So all I can do is urge anyone who’s after a pair of jeans to go into Donna Ida and see what you come out with, they sure do know their stuff.
