The Denim Story

I want to take a minute to talk about one of fashions most versatile fabrics; Denim. We all have a denim story. Your first pair of jeans you bought, that vintage pair you got for a steal and reminds you of a different time, or your favorite pair that can almost feel like a second skin. No matter where you're from, what you do or who you inspire to be, denim plays an important and active roll in all our lives. And like most ladies (and men) in the western fashion world, denim is a down right necessity. 

I don't think there's been a time in my life where denim hasn't been a staple in my wardrobe. I mean after all, I do come from the land of the Canadian tuxedo, and we take pride in our denim. I grew up riding and going to rodeos and there's nothing better than a perfect fitting jean to throw your leg over a saddle in. Even though denim is a huge part of the western culture, it plays a big role in high fashion as well. Kimes ranch is just one example of how jeans can be truly comfortable, durable, and fashionable. 

Even though denim was extremely versatile before hand, when high fashion took a leap into the western world for inspiration, the limit to what denim could do became unreachable. I mean we all saw the over the knee denim boots lady Gaga rocked last year with her cutoffs & wrangler top? A total western inspired look.

I don't think denim will ever go out of style, and that's something I will never be upset about. I've worn a lot of jeans in my day but the fit and style Kimes provides in their denim is incomparable. The Bonnie jean that I'm rocking in these photos by an old run down church is just one example of how fashionable, yet still western, their styles can be. I'll be rocking my Kimes till the end of time. My denim story is definitely one in its own, and a huge part of the reason I became a western fashion blogger, it's a lifestyle and a culture. What's your denim story?
