A chat with my latest style and girl crush, Nwabisa from Denim Palace.
Here’s how to get your own killer jeans…
Some of you may remember this post (click here) on my last pair of LB jeans. Needless to say, I basically live in them. Lucky Brand let me grab another pair so I tried on a few different styles and colours this time. Which ones are you feeling – The Charlie, The Brooke, The Charlie Super Skinny or The Lolita?
I chose the sweet grey Charlie skinny’s which will probably become a staple this winter.
Now dear readers, what’s cool is that not only are Lucky Brand offering you a 20% sale on accessories starting today, but they’ve also now got a range of jeans starting at R499. Hello shopping spree! They’re also starting live in-store music AKA “Lucky Sessions” so you can get down while checking out yo’ hot booty in dem jeans. (Their change rooms have some seriously flattering mirrors as a bonus.)
To celebrate, Lucky Brand and myself are giving away three pairs of jeans valued at R499! To enter, head to Facebook or the Twitter machine, follow @girlwithabum and @LuckyBrandSA and tell us which jeans you preferred and how you’d style them. You can tweet us or comment on the Facebook post as many times as ya like and you can also share the comp for extra entries. Click here for my Facebook and here for the Lucky Brand page.

Pst – these rad Lucky Brand offers are limited so head to their flagship store at the Pav and shop ‘em before they’re gone. They also have a range of shoes and accessories that you’ll dig.
I had the privilege of being invited to the Lucky Brand relaunch of their Denim Donation Drive.
I got to choose a pair of jeans in exchange for any pair of old denims and let me tell you, it was a very hard choice, rivalling the decision whether to cut a fringe or not, or what to order at my favourite restaurant.
Normally jeans shopping is an absolute nightmare for me – I generally stay very far away from this traumatic experience. I have a smallish waist, big butt and short legs – jeans weren’t made for this booty without some serious tailoring. Yet, for the first time in the history of ever, every single pair I tried on was perfectly fitted, super luxe and comfy as hell. Now all of a sudden, the nightmare was choosing my favourite out of all the beautiful fits and washes.
In between wine sipping and grooving to the DJ, I finally settled on these ripped dark wash skinnies AKA The Charlie Skinny (Right). It was a close call between the light wash high-rise skinnies on the left!
If you want to get your hands on your own pair, all you have to do is bring in a pair of your old, lightly worn jeans (any brand!) and get 50% off a brand new pair of stunning denims.
All denims collected will be donated to the SOS Children’s Villages. They run a project in Port Elizabeth whereby repurposed denims are sold for profit by women in the community, who are then able to support themselves through this awesome initiative.
I was helped by a strapping young lad named Reese who selected my perfect size after taking one look at me, despite my usual protests for a larger one. Brother had skillz.
