Our favourite and never to be parted from ‘jeans’ derives from the French phrase ‘bleu de Genes’ meaning ‘the blue of Genoa’.  This is where denim fabric originated in the French town of Nimes – the name of the fabric then quickly became known as we know it, Denim abroad.

Sailors first wore denim as early as the 1500’s as it was a hardwearing and comfortable fabric to wear. During the gold rush boom in the 1870’s, Levi Strauss (yes Mr Levi) designed strong work trousers from the original fabric from Nimes along with rivets that were quickly adopted by Californian coal miners. Thus creating Jeans. For many years denim was worn as a utility for workers until during the American pop culture scene of the 1950’s when those loveable jeans as we know them were born! From here the fabric was then embraced and tinkered with to create some of the most stylish pieces I think we have today in fashion. Stylish yet super cool and super comfy.

Spring Trends. 70’s.

70sBuys

Anyone that knows me, knows that the 60’s and 70’s are favourite eras of fashion for me. I was an 80’s kid meaning I was a teen in the 90’s so I’m still a little queasy and not so embracing towards these fashions returning already so quickly in my eyes. I am however about to reap and relish some of my youth with the current 70’s trends that are dropping on the high street at the moment. Suede jackets, suede mini skirts, bold psychedelic patterns, crotchet, tassels, platform shoes – all items I was guilty of wearing and discovering from my Mum’s wardrobe as a teenager in my own 90’s way. I was very excited some few months ago to pick up an original tan brown suede shirt style jacket for £4 on eBay – almost identical to one I had once worn some 20 years ago.

There really are some great items out there at the moment which don’t have to scare you into thinking of dressing like ABBA or The Bee Gee’s, here are my picks:
