My Valentine Jeans…

This past Valentine’s, I was one of the first two names to be drawn in J Brand’s special Valentine Twitter giveaway.  It isn’t often I win a prize, especially something of such magnitude! so my heart skipped a beat when I found out that I had won.  Almost a month later, here I am wearing my new denim which I now call ‘The Valentine Jeans’, and I refuse to take them off!  So here’s my take on how to build a whole look around one item for the whole day; not a revolutionary concept by any means, but when I’m crushing on something so much, it’s natural for me to want to find as many reasons, excuses, ideas and ways to wear it as much as possible.J Brand Jeans Day to Night

I know the jeans (818 Slim Boot in Starlessare a little too short for heels now, but for demonstration purposes, I thought it would do.  I want to wear this pair solely with flats, and I dislike the idea of a raggedy, worn-out hem at the back because the jeans are too long –very sloppy, in my opinion, so I had it hemmed.  Fashion experts advise that one should have two pairs of jeans in two lengths: one for heels and one for flats.  That’s my modus operandi now, and as soon as I have the pennies all neatly lined up, I plan to get a petite sized boot-cut from J Brand to wear with heels.

To close this post off, I want to thank J Brand and the team again, very sincerely.  It’s a very generous and sweet gesture that made my day, and my wardrobe. ♥

  1. Oooh!! I like! A lot!! I just got new jeans yesterday cause my old ones were ripping out! Lol! Clearance! Yay! I had to hem them though! 😛

      1. Lol! Totally! But being a shortie is the best anyways!!!! Otherwise we wouldn’t get to climb on counters to reach things, or still let our men look tall when we wear heels! 😉
