If you haven’t noticed yet, I haven’t done a photo shoot in jeans! And why not? The answer is that I simply am not a jeans person. Sure, I own and do wear jeans! Many years ago, I loved jeans. I was a lot slimmer then! Now that I’m healthier and curvier, I don’t feel great in jeans. They are the things which I grab to throw on on a coolish day to go to the supermarket or the park with the kids. They are not what I’d wear to make a fashion statement out and about in the city. Not until now.

Best jeans ever

I’ve fallen in love with the Jeanswest new Super Skinny Prima Jeans! Talk about painted on jeans! These jeans fit like a glove, hugging you in all the right places. They’re also super soft and comfy. They may look like jeggings, only thicker and more supportive in the areas which need supporting. Oh, and getting on and off the motorbikes which we used in the photo shoot was a breeze! Stretchy, skinny and stylish jeans. This is what I will be living in throughout winter.

Jeanswest’s new collection includes a cute leather biker jacket which gave me the idea to do a ‘Biker Chic’ themed photo shoot. We’re always trying to create different looks for our blog, using as many different photo locations as we can. It does require some time and effort but it pays off and we achieve some wonderful images.

John’s vintage garage

We were fortunate enough to have a friend who’s grandpa has a love of restoring vintage motorbikes. When we entered his workshop, there was no doubt where we’d be shooting. There were a couple of Triumphs and Puch bikes, some completed and some in the works. Grandpa John spends most of his days bringing these forgotten about machines back to their full glory. At eighty three years of age, this grandpa zips around on his bikes as well as any young bloke.

How stylish are the vintage bike helmet and goggles? It’s a pity that they don’t make them like that anymore! Unfortunately the cork that they are made of wouldn’t protect your head if it hit the ground.

To be honest, I’m not much of a biker chick. The fashion is definitely cool and timeless but I’m hesitant to hop on those machines. The last time I rode on the back of one was in Thailand many years ago and due to the crazy style of their driving, I’ve decided that it’s best to only ride in vehicles with at least four wheels. As for the look, thumbs up for painted on jeans and a leather biker jacket as a fashion statement. Glitz it up with a pair of killer heels and some metal jewellery or pair it with a tank top and ankle boots for a relaxed, biker chick style.
