I have been Twitter friends with @theladywilson for sometime now and she often Tweets about her love for fashion and her weekly covet. As we have the same obsession for great denim, when she tweeted a picture of her six strong collection of the Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny all neatly folded, I wanted to know WHY?
MY DENIM JOURNEY by Kitty Wilson
I have always been a curvy girl but I do love my skinny jeans and like many women out there, I faced the common problem of finding the ‘right one’. I have tried many brands over the years and I kept facing the same problem – whilst it fits nicely on the hips, it’s too loose on the waist or vice versa!

I have a penchant for prints (leopard prints especially!) and coloured jeans and that’s when I heard about Current/Elliott as the infamous must-have Stiletto leopard-print skinny jean. Widely seen on editors to fashion bloggers during the Europe Fashion Week in March 2011! Conveniently, my birthday falls in April and in April 2011; my husband decided to buy my first pair of Current/Elliott’s.
So I went to MATCHES boutique in Wimbledon, one of my favourite shops in London, the sales assistants are always so friendly and helpful. It was the Current/Elliott Stiletto leopard-print jeans in ‘camel’ colour I was after, so I tried on a couple of sizes and VIÒLA, I finally found the one! The size 27 fits me like a glove; fitting on the hips and waist and most importantly, it lifted my bottom which makes me feel really sexy in them! That was my very first pair and I haven’t looked back since!

I received so many compliments whenever I wore those Current Elliott leopard-print jeans and within a couple of months they launched the ‘sapphire’ colour. I fell in love with the sapphire leopard-print straight away when I saw them in Selfridges and then, there were two. Later the same month, MATCHES had a sale and the Current Elliott/Stiletto skinny in ‘aquamarine green’ became my third acquisition.

One of my favourite colours is purple. So when I was shopping in Selfridges one afternoon and the mannequin had a ‘purple’ pair of Current/Elliott Skinnies on so needless to say, they came home with me later that afternoon! Number 4!

Fast forward a few months later, the tie-dye trend was in and I fell deeply in love with the Current/Elliott Stiletto in ‘cosmic’. So, I did the right thing by paying Selfridges a visit….. they never seem to disappoint. This became the fifth pair.

Then, came the rise of the floral trend. The last (but not least!) pair, the Current/Elliott Stiletto in ‘red rose’. Colourful floral prints, what more could I ask for?! And that was my sixth pair.

I always look upon Current /Elliott as ‘statement’ jeans so I tend to wear a plain over-sized tee or sweater and let the jeans do the talking.
KITTY’S STYLE TIPS
Don’t forget to accessorize with statement jewellery, bag and a nice pair of shoes to complete the look! Do experiment with prints and colours as fashion is all about being adventurous!
I love all my Current/Elliott jeans to bits and I strongly believe the ‘red rose’ will not be my final pair. I have my eye on a basic pair of blue ones at the moment which I will acquire very, very soon.
