Apple bottoms jeans, boots with the fur...
As I've already discussed, I have a booty. A big one. Which is probably one of the reasons I love dresses so much. They are much easier to find and to fit my body than pants. When I do buy jeans/pants I often have to deal with the problem where to get pants to fit my ass, it is too large in the waist. Do not take this as a complaint as I both a) love my booty and b) hate when people complain about their bodies. It is merely an explanation of where I'm starting from.
But sometimes a girl wants to wear a pair of jeans and guess who came to my rescue? No, it wasn't Earl or Diesel or 7 for all Mankind, all of which I'm sure make lovely jeans that I'll never come close to fitting into. I have Nelly to thank. Who you ask? You know, the rapper from the early 2000's who inexplicably wore a band aid under his eye all the time and gave us hits like "Hot in Here." Yeah, you remember him now. Nelly's music hasn't survived so well, but he did create the line Apple Bottoms jeans and for that I am eternally grateful.
To quote urban dictionary apple bottoms are a line of "fashionable denim for women with voluptuous, curvaceous posteriors." They are amazing and have been immortalized in song. Many (or really most) of their designs are not what I would ever call fashionable, but they are indeed a line of jeans for women whose ass is way bigger than their waist and for that I love them. Plus, they have a plus size line. Woot woot!!!
One of most amazing things about these jeans that you can't see in the photo and that I really wish I had taken a separate picture of, is the blinged out belt and belt buckle that is built into the jeans. A built in belt with skinny jeans that have stretch to them is actually fairly smart and practical as the denim stretches out throughout the day and a belt will hold them up. But this belt has an enormous gold plated buckle that reads Apple Bottoms in script and it's not so much for form as it is for ghetto fabulousness. It's amazing, but not in a way that I would ever show to anyone, unless it was for a laugh.
What was interesting to me when I took this photo was that it made me realize I wear a fair amount of western/cowgirl themed outfits. Considering that I own both pink and purple cowboy boots you would think this wouldn't take me by such surprise, but just like my laundry, it does. I have had both these boots and shirt for years so I guess it's a long standing interest of mine.
Jeans are Apple Bottoms
Tank top is Old Navy
Cowgirl shirt is from Torrid
Boots are from Dorothy Perkins and I got them in the sales for 13 pounds, a fact I still brag about 5 years on.
The necklace is from the Bust craftacular which is happening THIS SUNDAY and if any of you live in New York you must go as it's my go to accessory shopping event of the year. Seriously probably any accessory of mine any of you have ever liked/coveted/wanted to rip from my body was likely purchased there. Check it out and then brunch with me and my friends afterwards.
