Hunt for the Perfect Jeans

So you know how it’s sooo hard to find jeans that make your butt look good and basically hug you in all the right places? Me too. So that’s why I’m starting this series; “Hunt for the Perfect Jeans”. I’ll literally go anywhere or try anything to find the elusive “perfect” pair of jeans. Does it exist? Will they all suck? We shall find out! I’m so excited. 😀😏 First up: Urban Outfitters’ BDG high waisted jean.

Here’s me bending down trying to take the “perfect” selfie/close-up. Not so much, but it shows the wash really well. Love this medium wash and distressing. I’ll be judging these jeans mainly based on three criteria: wash, cut/fit, abd material. So here are the pros & cons:

PROSPROSPROS

  • This wash.is.like.sopretty. It’s a medium indigo wash & I love it.
  • The cut. This cut makes my thighs and butt look good and you know, that’s like the main thing good jeans should do.
  • The fabric. The quality of these jeans is very good. The fabric is thick yet stretchy, which I really like. I’m not in love with super thin stretchy or super thick unstretchy jeans. I’ve heard wonders about vintage unstretchy Levi’s 501s. I will have to try them!

Cons

  • The price. 69.00 (+ 6.90 for shipping if you’re ordering online) they’re not exactly within my budget. If they’re within yours, I wish I could borrow your credit card cus I would order them in every color. I know some people spend $400+ on designer jeans, but some of us have college debt/a real life so..yeah. However, if you’re a 27 snag these now on Poshmark! I saw them there for $25. 😱💙🙌

That’s the only con I came up with though. I will definitely buy more and recommend them to friends. I once had a pair of BDGs for 7 yrs…wait I still have them. I will definitely buy more.

That sums up my first venture into the hunt for the perfect jeanss. By the way, if you love to read fashion magazines like me check out the articles on denim in the current issue of Elle. They are literally everything. Especially the one by Lizzy Goodman on jean shorts and the trajectory of badassery and rebellion they have had and the role they have played in her life. This issue seriously encouraged me to do this series, even though i was already thinking about it. 💙💙💙

This article is so literally me. 😍😍😍

Couldn’t decide which top to get….so..you know..I need both. Top on the left from Free People and the one on the right from Lucky Brand. Both adorable. Lovely, sexy, and gorg skirt from Levi’s.

All of these items are from American Eagle except for the sandals. I usually never shop there but I’m challenging myself for this hunt! I’ll be covering their jeans for sure because I loooved all this stuff.

These are the Lucky Brand shorts I distressed and reworked myself a few weeks ago that I showed you guys. Still working on merch, just gathering funds! The t shirt is a Ramone’s tee I’ve had since high school. This shot is from a walk I took to the store. How exciting!

Love you guys! Thanks for reading! How do you like this hunt so far? Comments please. 😊😍💙

It’s took me a while to post these, but here they are! I distressed them myself, applied patches, and personalized them. I’m into the patch trend this summer and I’m planning on stocking my Ebay and Etsy shop with more styles! I’m currently gathering supplies. 😉🎨

Asos, you never cease to provide inspo either. Love the kawaii vibes. 🌈

Of course, I’m putting my own spin on these trends & I’ll be providing three styles: desert rose, kawaii cutie, and dia de los muertos.

I always thought workwear should be fun. Sleeveless bow/pussy bow blouses and culottes are ideal for long summer days at work. Yes some of us, including myself, have to work this summer, even though I am currently on vacation. 😀🌅🌞🌈✈🚣💄👗👡 Yay!!

Ironic that I would draw a work-themed outfit on vacation, but I didn’t really plan it that way. Things happen when you’re drawing. 🔮

I love the idea of mixing prints and of a fruit salad print. Calling all fabric makers, garment makers, and designers! Collab with me and help me make this blouse a reality! 🍹🍇🍋🍓🍉🍈

PS; new update to my forthcoming offerings to my Ebay & Etsy in my next post! Yay to permanent vacay. ( I wish) 😉

Happy Friyay!
