J Brand Jeans
Note to my new favorite jeans (J Brand Skinny Leg Jeans):
I bought you about a month and a half ago, but now I hardly remember what life was like before you. I kept hearing about J Brand Jeans, and your famous fans like Victoria Beckham, the Kates (Beckinsale, Moss and Hudson), the Jessicas (Alba and Simpson), even THE Angelina likes you. So I thought I would try on a pair and see if you are worth the hype. You are. I have been wearing skinny jeans for a while now, but until you came along I never found a pair that was comfortable. You have the right amount of stretch in you, 2% spandex, enough spandex so you are comfortable, but a small enough percentage to hold your shape. I can dress you up with a nice top and some heels, and wear you casually with a white t-shirt and flip flops. I usually have a problem with commitment, but I think you and I will be together for a long time.
Note to Readers:
Finding the perfect pair of jeans is a daunting task. It is hard because our bodies are all shaped differently, so while my favorite jeans may fit me like a glove, they could be too short/long/tight/loose/you fill in the blank here-- on someone else. A good way to select a pair of jeans is find the silhouette you are looking for, (wide leg, skinny leg, low rise, high waist, relaxed fit, etc.) and then try on a few different brands in that style. Also remember there is no such thing as universal sizing, so while you may wear a size 28 in Joe's Jeans, you may be a 29 in Diesel jeans, so bring a couple different sizes with you into the dressing room. When the right pair comes along, you will just know it. Happy hunting!
