Shopping in YOUR closet: Denim

My girlfriend from college, Meredith, started a weekly series Shopping in YOUR closet!  This week is favorite denim, and I just had to chip in my two cents.  I have always been a girl who loves designer jeans and will invest in a few too many pairs, but I wear them forever, so I continue to buy them.  **Sidenote:  I still wear my very FIRST pair of Sevens that I got in high school, ya that is wayyyy too long, but they are still in great/good condition ...  (I just counted, and those puppies have gotten SEVEN good years in --- too funny).


Anyways, I have never been a fan of skinny jeans considering I was gifted with an apple bottom and am not anywhere close to being stick skinny.  A couple months ago, I was shopping at Forever 21 and had a stack of fun tops to try on, but realized I was wearing a skirt that wouldn't help me the slightest.  We all know it is impossible to get the full picture of what the rest of the outfit will look like, so I grabbed the first pair of dark denim jeans I saw in my size.  Once I got to the dressing room, I realized  they were skinny jeans ... and I thought oh this is going to be funny!  I tried them on and absolutely loved them.  Better yet, they were $12.50 and have gotten more wear than anything I own.  They are so comfortable, a great dark color, and super cute (I think at least)!!!


Here is a picture :)

Jillian said...

Those jeans are adorable on you! What a great deal at $12.50. I'm trying to lose a few to get back into my skinny jeans. I gained a few pounds after the wedding from too much cooking. Ha ha.

Abby Kreck said...

Cutest outfit you have ever put on your body! Love it!

I am in the same boat, I feel like Heidi Klum is the only person with the perfect body for skinny jeans... but alas, you look adorable. Maybe for $12.50 I could buy a pair and see if I too can pull of the look! Super cute, thanks for playing along.

Jane said...

Those are definitely cute skinneys! The really tight ones look good on noone! 10lbs or not! ha! Love those!

Carol said...

Oh my goodness I have those $12.50 jeans too!! I was totally nervous about skinny jeans but I figured I might as well try them out since they were so cheap! But of course, I can never go wrong with my citizens, sevens and hudsons!

Landlocked Bride said...

You look great in those! I put on a pair the other day in Forever and they just weren't feeling me. Le sigh.

ALin said...

Hmmm, I may just have to invest in a (cheap) pair of skinny jeans, thanks!

I moved recently and basically did "Shop in my own closet" because I forgot all the great clothes I had! I too love designer jeans and found 2 new pairs of True Religion that were in great condition that I hadn't worn in years, good find! :)

And the jeans do look super cute!

Rachel said...

Wow they are cute. I've never been able to find any that look right one me. Then again, I'm short so they are all too long.

The Pink Tutu said...

Those jeans look great on you! I have been wanting to try skinny jeans as well :)

Ian & Jess said...

Those are some pretty hot jeans. What a good deal too. Love Forever 21

sarah said...

I just jumped on the skinny jeans bandwagon! If you can find a great pair that works for you they are great!

katie + bret said...

Sweet Simplicity said...

I think they look great on you! I love her logo for her weekly series!

Sole Matters said...

ohhh! i love those jeans! how long ago did you buy them? i too have a very apple bottom and have been hesitant to try skinny jeans.

Jacci said...

I have those exact same jeans too. LOVE them. I am so excited for it to cool down so I can actually start wearing them again. You're so cute Kels.

Laura Christensen said...

Cute Kelsey - those look great on you :)

Annie said...

they are super cute!
you look fab.u.lous in them...well at least your legs do, the only part we can see ;)
i need to head to F21, i've never even tried on skinny jeans.

Christa said...

LOVE them! Super cute!

Heather said...

OH girl this makes me laugh! I don't know how tall you are, I am relatively short. Anywho, I was in White House Black Market today and the sales lady kept wanting me try on a pair of skinny jeans with this top. I had to tell her like 15 times NO!!! I have short legs and I just didn't think they would like right, plus Mollie Kate was crying and I wanted to leave, they look good on you!! Ok sorry for my ramblings!!

Brittany Ann said...

As a fellow apple-bottomed girl, I'm impressed. I can never get my behind into skinny jeans!

Brittany and Charlie-Social Butterfly said...

Fun series! I have never been a big fan of skinny jeans either. Maybe I just need to try a pair on.

OK to VA said...

I <3 Forever 21! I just bought a ton of stuff there yesterday actually! And those jeans are adorable! I love accidental finds.

Darrah said...

This is really funny because I did the same exact thing at Forever-21! Those are by far my favorite skinny jeans. I just found your blog, and am glad to meet another Seattle blogger!

Jennifer said...

Those are cute jeans! I can't pull off the skinny jeans AT ALL!

Kristen Sara said...

I have heard so much about your lovely blog! I am going to start following you so I can keep up with your wonderful posts! And I could live in denim... I'm a student for now, but when I get back out into the real world, I will stock up on my designer jeans. I am a huge fan of True Religion and Lacoste Denim!! Your skinny jeans look fabulous by the way!

smile steady said...

And that's exactly why me and Forever 21 are BFF. Those jeans look great on you!

Kassie said...

This is so cute!! I thought I couldn't wear skinny jeans too, bc I have an (ahem) womanly hourglass figure, you would call it. But I tried some on in a store, and love them!! And now I can actually tuck jeans into boots like everyone else! :)
