Personal Style | Thrifted Boyfriend Jeans

Hello Beauties!

A few months ago, I made a complaint on Twitter about my struggle to find a proper fitting pair of boyfriend jeans.  Ever since the boyfriend jean hit the scene, I have been loving them, but unfortunately, most pairs have not been loving me.  I am heavier on the bottom of my body so every pair of boyfriend jeans I tried was either too tight in the leg or too loose in the waist.  I am happy to announce my struggle is finally over and it ended in an unexpected place!


As much as I like to thrift, I rarely thrift jeans.  I know the thrift store is the ideal place for jeans, but throughout the years, I have rarely found my size.  While I was thrifting with my mother a few weeks ago, I found a pair of Ashley Stewart jeans that were a few sizes too big, but made them perfect to wear as boyfriend jeans!



I have already worn these jeans multiple times, but on this particular day, I decided to pair them with a cargo vest I found on clearance in Las Vegas and a shirt I found while unpacking.  Oh the things you find in random boxes!




Shirt:  Conway Vest:  Forever 21+ | Jeans:  Ashley Stewart via Thrift ($3) (Similar) | Heels:  Shoe Show (Love these!) | Necklace:  Ebay | Purse:  Ashley Stewart






Are you loving boyfriend jeans?  What is your favorite cut of jeans?

God bless & stay fabellis,

  11. Cute! I have had more luck in thrift stores for jeans, I think because you have a couple of years' worth of trends in one place? And not just whatever's hot right that second.

  16. Love these boyfriend jeans! I too have had problems with the boyfriend jean. I'm super tiny up top and not so tiny on the bottom. THus I feel like I look really silly in mine. I only have Guess? jeans - because I use to work at the HQ's and could buy them for like $10 =).
