Desperately seeking denim

Hours - maybe even days. I think if I add up all the time I have spent over the years on the hunt for "the perfect" denim, you could equal this to days. And guess what, I'm still hunting! 

As a 5ft 1 (ish) girl, the struggle for jeans is really. Yes, yes; I know that brands such as Topshop do a petite range, and the majority of brands offer varying leg lengths, but still, the struggle is so so real! Coming in at a waist 25", the problem usually comes with my legs. Despite having a "thigh gap" (not that this is important by any means), my thighs and calf muscles are often left with indents from jeans. Curse of being active maybe. 

In short, it is time to finally veer away from the cheaper end of the hughstreet denim offering, and move towards some higher end brands to see what can be offered there.

Levis, Lee, Wrangler, Pepe Jeans - I'm looking at you.  

In the meantime, while I explore the vast variety out there, I've put together some of my favourites - and not just jeans - all pieces faded and dark!

As always, any recommendations would be much appreciated. 

What is your "go to" denim brand?
