At Bullet Blues, we wanted to mention Rosa Parks, one of our favorite woman in history. Rosa Parks, a 42-year-old black woman, refused to give her bus seat to a white man during a typical evening rush hour in Montgomery, Alabama, on her way home from the Montgomery Fair department store where she worked as a seamstress, 58 years ago today. It was the 1st of December, 1955. Mrs. Parks remained seated, arguing that she was not in a seat reserved for whites. Officers Day and Mixon came and promptly arrested her after she defied the order of Joseph Blake, the bus driver, to move to the back of the bus as she was expected to in that era of segregation. In the South, city buses were lightning rods for civil rights activists. It took someone with the courage and character of Rosa Parks to strike with lightning. With a quiet act of defiance that resonated throughout the world, Rosa Parks is known and revered today as the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement. On 20 December 1956, Mrs. Parks paid her 10¢ and sat wherever she pleased. One of her famous quote that we favor is : “you must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right. ”
Today is Mark Twain Birthday. At Bullet Blues, we like his talent and humor. We are cat lovers too. Born on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri, Samuel L. Clemens wrote under the pen name Mark Twain and went on to pen several novels, including two major classics of American literature, The Adventures of Tom […]
This evening after work, our team is being invited to my boss’s home for a Thanksgiving Dinner. Pardon me for my ignorance but I have never been invited to one before and am rather excited about it that I even googled the history of Thanksgiving Day. It seems long but I guess in short and in my very own understanding, it means a celeberation to give thanks after a good harvest. Am I right?
One very interesting thing about this dinner is that all my boss wants for us is to share something that we are truly thankful for this year. I took this rather seriously and really thought about what I am thankful and I realised I have loads and tons of things to be grateful for. I think I shall just share 3 of the most important things that I am grateful for.
Yup yes family. Without family…

We’re so excited to have Sheila Marshall as the Bullet Blues Girl. She is the “total package” as they say. She’s talented, beautiful, and she’s a patriot.
Her vocal and songwriting talents are impressive–she’s been singing since she was about six years old. She’s passionate about singing, whether she’s performing one of her own songs, like “How Long” or a bluesy rendition of the Randy Weeks song, “Can’t Let Go”. Her influences include Patsy Cline, Led Zeppelin, Sheryl Crow, and Lucinda Williams and they’re all reflected in her unique style.
Another reason Sheila is such a perfect match for Bullet Blues’ made in USA apparel–she’s a true patriot. She’s entertained the US troops in Kuwait and Iraq. She’s travelled around the world, but her performance in front of our troops shows a little bit about her character. We’re proud to have a patriot like Sheila representing us!
You’ve seen her in our ads and pictures, and she really rocks our Bullet Blues jeans and tops. She’s a true beauty, and is the perfect model for our American-made apparel.
An accomplished country-rock artist, She’s worked with Willie Nelson, Rodney Crowell, and Matchbook 20 guitarist Kyle Cook, just to name a few. Her roots-y voice took her all the way to the TV show “Nashville Star” where she was a contestant. About her experience on the show, she said, “It was a blast but it was also stressful. I loved performing on stage with such a talented band and thousands of people watching it was a great feeling.”

Are you on Polyvore? Join the Bullet Blues group, Style is Eternal and enter our contest for a great giveaway! You could win a pair of Bullet Blues Sunday jeans. Made in the USA of American materials.
Our Sunday jeans are a beautiful sky blue color (we call it Ciel) and they have a flattering flare leg. They’re comfortable and made in Los Angeles of premium American denim.
Did you know that flare leg jeans began as part of the American naval uniform, and date back all the way to the 19th century? Their flares were more for function than fashion– the wider leg made it easier for the sailors to take off their boots. Of course, the 60s and 70s were the heyday of flare leg jeans, and now the style is back, thanks in part to trendsetting stylist Rachel Zoe. We love the Bullet Blues Sunday jeans, and we know you will too.
Don’t forget to join our group, and enter the contest–the winner will receive a pair of these awesome made in USA flare leg jeans.
Bullet Blues has a new style in the works, and we’re super excited about it–the “boyfriend” jean. On-trend and flattering to so many different body types, you’re going to love these women’s jeans. We wanted to accommodate women who like jeans with a more relaxed fit. You’ll be seeing the Bullet Blues boyfriend jeans soon, and ours are made in the USA of premium denim.
Boyfriend fashion may look like you raided your boyfriend’s closet, but you can style them for a feminine look. Marilyn Monroe and her sexy hourglass figure wore a kind of “boyfriend” jeans 50 years ago. In the 80s, boyfriend jeans were everywhere–Madonna wore hers ultra baggy and belted.
The gang on Beverly Hills 90201 loved their “boyfriends”–and the style had major resurgences in 2004 and 2007. Fashion trendsetter Katie Holmes was spotted wearing them in 2009, and the style’s popularity has exploded since then. Celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon are big fans too.
2014 will definitely be the year of the boyfriend. You’re going to love the Bullet Blues version! And our jeans are always made in the USA.
