I received my much anticipated Lady K Loves high waisted jeans in the post last week, and I have to say that they have not left my backside since!
Jeans are one of those things that the vast majority of us really struggle with. Hands up who has been jeans shopping, tried on about 10 pairs, and still have gone home empty handed?
Although I love high waisted clothing, its something that I struggle to get as the fit is never right on me. As much as I love the look of Freddie's jeans on other people - they just do not fit me. The hip to waist ratio is just not big enough for pear shaped me, meaning that the correct hip size, leaves about 6 inches gaping on the waist. I also don't like the leg width on them, the wide leg makes me feel short and dumpy. That's not to say that I don't like them, Freddies are great (and I have a few of their tops),the jeans - just not on me, unfortunately!
I met Kessie from Lady K last Christmas as we had stalls next to each other at Kustom Kristmas. I tried on one of her high waisted black skirts at the show and was amazed at how well it fitted me! I have gone on to purchase another HW skirt, and some HW Capris too, all which fit me great. When Kessie announced that Lady K were going to be doing HW jeans, I pre-ordered straight away! (I just wanted to make clear, by the way that although, yes, I do know Kessie, she has not asked me to do a review on my blog, and I pay for all my clothes in full, and buy them of my own free will. I'm doing this because I genuinely love the fit and style of her products - and it may help others who also have the HW fit problem like I do!).
So anyway - here are the jeans;
They fit so well, and I love the fact that they have a slim leg. Much more flattering on me than wide leg jeans :)
(I'm also wearing my Lady K Hawaiian Shirt, too. Another firm favourite in my wardrobe)

And the proper photos, taken from the Lady K Loves website;
The denim is nice and crisp, without being stiff and uncomfortable. It also has a slight stretch to it too, which definitely adds to the comfort factor.
They are available in sizes XS-XL (with full sizing and measurements on the website), and in two leg lengths , 23" and 33", so you can have them as Capris or as jeans. I went for a size Medium, in the 33" leg.
You can get them off the Lady K Website here.
