{blues jean bar}

So, have you guys heard of the Blues Jean Bar yet? I hadn't either, not until I'd stumbled upon it while spending a nice Sunday walking along State Street in Santa Barbara with my husband. Now, I'm not typically the type of person to get all excited about shopping for jeans. I'm also not the type of person to spend much money on jeans, mainly because I've never found the right type. 

You see, I have skinny ankles, a small waist and hips, and average size thighs. That makes for jeans that fit me well in the legs, but like to fall off of my hips. I have never before found a pair of jeans that fit me perfectly. Until now. 

The great thing about the Blues Jean Bar is that they find jeans specifically for you. They carry dozens of brands, and the employees know so much about what types of jeans would look good on you. I couldn't not try to find a pair while I was there. And? Success.



The winner? The James Twiggy. All I needed to do was fold them up {which I think is adorable}, and perfection!



I really never thought that the brand or type of jean mattered, but I was definitely proven wrong. They helped me find something that actually fit {two sizes smaller than I thought I was!} and actually made my butt look good. I can definitely say that they made a customer for life!

I cant believe I have never heard of this place. I should defintly go check this place out.

This is such a great idea - I don't know why more jean retailers don't do this since it really is so difficult to find a pair of well fitting jeans! The only jeans I've ever found that fit me well are from Express. I bought three pairs of the same jean when I was in California a couple weeks ago!

I need to go there, so I can finally have a pair of jeans that truly fits! Those look great on you, Joelle!

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

Haha I don't know! But you should go sometime :)

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

Yeah, when I saw the concept, I was definitely interested! I typically buy multiple pairs when I find something that fits me, but I really think I'll go back the next time I need a pair. There were quite a few that looked really good, which has never happened before!

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

You should! It's kind of overwhelming, but they are SO helpful!

A mobile store? That's pretty awesome! I'm sure they just go all over the city, you can probably follow them on Twitter or something to find out where they're going to be!

Thank you so much! xoxo

How amazing! I would love one of those stores to open up near me! Those look goooood girl! :)

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

Do they have one in Houston?! That's awesome! I really need jeans that actually fit!

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

I have been wanting to go here (but to the Santa Monica location)!

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

First of all, I love those jeans! So cute on you! Second, I feel like I really need to go there...I've also never had jeans that fit me THAT well.
I'm inspired :)

I also feel like Tyler should try and get jeans here too...he also has problems. :)

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

You should definitely try it out! But be warned...you definitely pay for it....

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

They have one in Santa Monica? That's a great spot! They're all pretty much the same, so definitely check it out!

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

They don't have one in Houston, but they have a Texas mobile store! You should check it out to see if they are stopping by you sometime soon ;)

Thanks lady! I'm so excited that I actually found jeans that make my butt look good (they really do...), so I've been wearing them everyday!
