This weeks denim review is on a pair of jeans that you regular readers know I have loved for a while now, the 7 For All Mankind Gummy Gwenevere skinny jeans in Dark Violet. The first time I saw these on Shopbop, I was obsessed with them! They just looked so pretty! The colour was what had me hooked, I already have a couple of Gummy Gweneveres and I love how they fit me, so I knew these ones would be amazing!
These got sent to me by 7 For All Mankind as Shopbop was selling out fast. I had to take a 26 which is the sample/model size as they didn’t have any other sizes available. I thought I would just squeeze myself into them as I am usually a 27, but it turned out that I didn’t have to. These actually fit me just fine. They even feel a little bit loose on me actually, but I am not sure if they are miss-sized or if they really run this big. All of my other Gummy Gweneveres and normal Gweneveres are a 27 but by the size of these, I could take a 25 in them. If this sizing is correct.
The one thing I love about the Gummy denim is how comfortable it is! I wore these all day when I went up to London last week (I’ve included some Buckingham Palace photos for you). That involves a 1 and a half hour train ride there, taxis, walking, a lot of walking, and then a 1 and half hour train ride back home. I wasn’t uncomfortable once in them and I am glad I picked them for that day out. They feel just like leggings and you could easily do yoga or stretches in them without any trouble. Even though they feel like leggings, they still fit like jeans at the same time so that’s why I think they are amazing!
Now the Dark Violet wash! It’s perfect! As you know I love the berry tones and purple definitely fits in to that shade. It reminds me a lot of the blackcurrant drink called Ribena which we have over here in England, I’m not sure if you do in the States, but it’s the same shade of purple and it’s truly beautiful! It’s fun to have this shade of purple in a pair of jeans because it livens up your outfit but at the same time it’s still one of the lesser daring colours, unlike a bold red or yellow. If you love coloured jeans then there is not one person that I wouldn’t recommend these to! They are definitely worth it! They are in my top 2 favourite coloured jeans I own! Buy these jeans online at Shopbop for $169.
