DENIM- Do it Right with SALSA.

Who doesn't love denim? No, wait. Let me rephrase that. Who doesn't love a good fitting pair of denim? I know I do!
I usually only stick to wearing a well fitted pair of jeans or leggings because I hate it when trousers bunch up at the knee while you sit and get up at work. Yes, I've had that issue with trousers from EVERY brand I've tried. So, I stick to jeans, jeggings and ponte leggings all the time.
Salsa recently had an event for us bloggers called “Find your perfect fit” and YES GIRLS, THEY DO EXIST! We got to meet stylist Ekram from Egypt who gave us a little brief on all the types of jeans they carried and she even measured us up and recommended 3 pairs that she thought suited us best and guess what? All of us ended up picking one of the 3 Ekram recommended. You see ladies; it’s all about knowing your body.

Body Collection- Designed to FIT your body

As explained to us by Ekram- Our bodies are fruits. We have the grape (an hourglass), the strawberry (broad shoulders, narrow waist), the Pear (narrow shoulders, broad hips), the banana (rectangular), and the Apple (full and rounded). Now if you've been blessed with an hourglass or banana figure, almost anything will look good on you! But if you've got a bigger waist, a huge butt or a fuller stomach, Salsa has a pair of jeans that was made for you! Ekram told me I’m somewhere in between a strawberry and an hourglass so she recommended the Push up super soft skinny jean for me and I LOVED IT!

Now, you've heard of the secret push in jeans that are meant for women that like to push in some of the mass from the hip and waist area, but have you heard of the MYSTERY jean? Secret pads in the back pocket of the jeans accentuates, lifts and shapes the butt for a more glamorous, Diva like feel. Wear them with killer heels for a night out to turn some heads girls! This is the genius pair we've all been waiting for (Of course not those of you who have been blessed with perfect bums, sigh!)

Now that I've rambled on and on about women and how we have our body proportion problems, lets talk about men. Unlike us, Men are less fidgety and picky and choose their jeans based on their comfort level and style. Enter- the denim art collection for men. 10 styles and cuts to choose from, every man is sure to leave the store with something that suits him best.

Salsa offers more than 20 different fits to choose from, whether you’re short, tall, skinny, round, lanky … you get the idea.
For such a small store, you wouldn't expect them to have a wall full of denim options to choose from, and apart from all the jeans, they have great jackets and shoes too!
Here are a few photographs of the event and all the fun we had in store!

  7. Do they have dressier denims? Dark shades for the evening? I go clubbing a lot and don't like wearing dress or skirts.

  11. I personally won't spend that much for a pair of jeans. Why would you do that? Also, the jeans your wearing looks same in the last pic day and night.

    1. Hello. Although they may seem a little expensive, I think its always better to buy something that will last you for years, even if it's on a pricier scale. Its better to spend 50 bd on a pair of jeans that's going to stay in good shape for 6 to 7 years than buy a 5 bd jeans that will stretch and wear out in a couple of uses and washes. So when it comes to wardrobe staples, I suggest you go for something of exceptional quality that cant be compromised.
      Also,in the last image I'm wearing the same pair of jeans- just demonstrating that you can turn up the hem for a more relaxed look and wear heels for a night out.

  12. Good reply. I agree because I myself buy good quality stuff when I know I'm going to overuse them. Like denim, white shirts and basic tees. Always buy good quality. This Salsa looks promising. I'll definitely be trying the mystery . A girl's gotta have that butt!
