{J Brand jeans}

I have fallen for J Brand! I was intent on finding some skinny jeans for Fall and Winter, and after trying on about 40 pairs between Saks, Bloomies, Nordstrom, & J Crew I finally found the right jeans for me. My advice is to try every style and even different washes within a style, because they ALL fit differently. The snug fit of J Brand took a little getting used to. One of the newer washes for J Brand is "INK". This wash is a little bit stiff and therefore harder to find that perfect fit. But, their "OYSTER" wash from earlier this year was very stretchy and comfy. I have come to love the J Brand plain back pockets--I think they give any outfit a more elegant sleek look.

Do you like skinny jeans? Do you have any, and if so which are your favorites?

You are one hot mommy! All legs and NO thighs too. Ugh. Some women have all the luck. You look amazing!!!

Kellybag said...

Please tell me the jeans are not the perfect length on you too!!! LOL
You are too perfect.

Haha! I have the 912s turned under in the picture. The 910s are supposed to be ankle length so they fit fine as is. The Heartbreakers were way too long, so I had to put on my high heels. I will probably hem them so I can wear my flats!

I like skinny jeans on others- they look great on you- but my fave are the boot cut. :)

I love J Brand jeans, my skinny jeans are J Brand and they are the only ones I've found that don't end up stretching out and losing their shape. Love all the pairs you chose! I want them all.

If I had your little bod I would wear skinny jeans too!

Patina said...

You look Goood! Love the top in the first pic--what is it?

You look great! I have always liked skinny jeans on other ladies but never so much on me. However, this year I finally found my perfect fit. I like J. Crew's Matchstick because they don't make my hips and thighs look too big. I have heard a lot of good things about J. Brand, too. I look forward to trying them for myself after reading this post!

I saw some gorgeous J brand jeans at the Saks outlet (off saks) the other day. However, they only had the smallest of sizes, and I am far from that right now. I did love them though, and I hope to try some on soon!

Bella said...

I love my jbrands! They are my absolute fave. In fact, I was wearing them earlier today!

Bella said...

Oh, and this is embarassing, but sometimes I read the LSAT book for fun! haha I think it's good learning. And its a nice break from all the science stuff I normally (have to) read.

All those jeans look great on you! I have wanted to try a pair, but with these short legs...i am just not sure. LOL. hope you have a great week! = )

Rosa said...

J Brand are the only skinny jeans that I wear. They are so comfortable and they last forever.
I am glad you are loving them too.

I love the 912s in "oyster". I don't really do skinnies, but I do love my straight legs! My faves are hudsons and citizens of humanity 'Ava'.

Polka Dots & Protein Bars said...

Those look incredibly fantastic! I wish I looked that awesome in my jeans!

Pink Julep said...

LOVE them! Can't wait to get some ASAP when I land in Cali at Christmas!!!!

Black Labs and Lilly said...

I have been on the hunt for a great pair of skinny jeans. I love J.Brand, so I will have to check these out!

gigiofca said...

The pencil jeans look smashing on you!

Princess Freckles said...

I've been wanting a pair for a long time now. Perhaps my next pair of jeans will have to J Brand. I'm normally a Seven girl or Rock n Republic. Are the J's long?

Jaina said...

I'm not a huge fan of skinny jeans, but I do own one pair in black from Charlotte Russe. I splurged on them (under normal circumstances I refuse to spend more than $20 on a pair of jeans) But I needed something to wear to my best friend's frat awards thing, and I had to wear pink. My cousin and I went shopping the morning of (I spent hours the week before and found nothing! It was the wrong season for pink that works for me) We got this great pink top and were in line to check out when I noticed the skinny jeans...it worked perfectly and looked great with the top, so we bought them. I've worn them one or two times. I personally prefer flares with tighter fitting top parts. But skinny jeans once in a while are great, so long as they aren't tooooooooooo skinny. Haha. Those jeans look fantastic on you though, looks like you got a great brand! It's always important to have good jeans that you like and feel comfortable in.

Petunia said...

For those that asked--the cream top in the first photo is from Anthropologie AND right now it is on sale online!

The J Brand in general run long except for the skinny 910s which were meant to be ankle length, so would work for many heights.

nissanese said...

i ordered several pairs of J Brand from anthro and realized i'm actually a 25 with J Brand. i could not squeeze my little hips into 24 at all! for some reason i had the impression that 25 was too big on me when i tried on a few years ago.

and maybe just like you said, it takes time to get used to J Brand, because the fabrics felt harsh on my skin. usually the darker colored jeans, the fabrics is rougher, or it's just me, that i'm picky about the fabrics when it comes to my jeans; they need to be comfy and thick (or at least comfy) :)

i will keep on trying J Brand until i find THE one. i have a pair of paige blue heights in white (summer). perhaps i should try another pair for the winter.

I am a skinny jeans addict! I am currently smitten with the J.Crew toothpick jeans - I have them in both the denim and dark resin washes - they fit me perfectly! These J Brands look great on you! :)

MCC said...

I love both J Brand and J Crew skinnies. While they are definitely different weights, they both fit so nicely. Great choices!

~ Elle said...

I love, love, love Rock & Republic jeans! They make my bum look fab :)

Danielle said...

I love skinny jeans. I have rich and skinny and recently got a GREAT deal on a pair of J brand jeans.

You should try current elliot, too.

They look smashing on you Miss Petunia, good for you! We do not yet have a pair, but stunned The Spousal Unit last week when saying we would like to try some on!

Sending you a smile,
