Designer Jeans reviews
Now that it is officially summer, what better time to break out your white denim? I figured it would be a perfect time to review these Hudson Mia Flares.
My first impression of these jeans was how nicely they fit, I got my regular size and they fit true to size. With a 9″ rise, the Mia is a true mid-rise and hits right past the hip bones. They are a true flare style, with a slim fit in the hips, thighs and knee, then flaring just below the knees. They do have a 35″ inseam which is long enough for me to wear flats or low heels with.
Next, I was impressed with the fabric content. I am always afraid that white jeans are going to be too sheer and see through. These have a nice mid-weight fabric blend, so they offer a nice amount of coverage and are not sheer at all. The fabric blend is 91.5% cotton, 6% Polyester, and 2.5% Lycra, so they do have a decent amount of stretch and shaping qualities. However, they have kept their shape after a few wears.
In terms of details, the front does have two mock pockets, as well as a mock coin pocket. I’d imagine this was a well thought out design note to avoid seeing the pocket linings and keep the fit really sleek and snug. Though the front pockets are mock, these jeans do have the classic 5 pocket design, with three front pockets and two large and flatteringly placed pockets in the back. The coin pocket features Hudson’s signature flag logo and the back pockets have the signature “V” shape design.
Overall, I am really impressed with the sculpting and flattering fit of these jeans. They have a great wide flare leg that looks nice paired with sandals or heels. I see myself wearing these quite a bit over the summer and into the fall! You can buy Hudson jeans online at their website.

I received these Lucky Brand Hayden straight leg jeans in Corolla for review. When first trying them on, I was really impressed by two things: the flattering cut and how soft they are! With a fabric composition of 92% cotton and 6% elastomultiester, 2% elastane, the fabric is very soft, with a good amount of stretch. It is also thick enough to provide a nice shape and give that flattering fit. One of the biggest gripes I have with jeans with a lot of stretch is they tend to lose their shape over time. I’ve been wearing these on a weekly basis over the past month or so, and they have held their shape pretty nicely, with minimal stretching.
The Hayden Straight Leg is a true straight leg style, with a 14.5″ leg opening. I chose the regular inseam, which is 32″, they hit me right at my ankles (I usually wear a 32-34″ inseam, for an ankle fit or a full length fit). These also have a mid-high rise which is 10″ in the front and 14.5″ inches in the back. One of the additional features is that these have a slimming panel in the front, which is designed to slim but is not at all constricting or uncomfortable. I got my normal size in these and found that it does fit slightly on the larger side but not enough to size down.
Although I’m an avid lover of dark washes, I chose the Corolla wash because I wanted something a little lighter for spring and summer. The wash is a nice mid/light blue with white undertones and tonal stitching details. There is subtle whiskering and fading down the front of the thighs and around the back near the pockets. The wash looks really great worn with white to bring out the undertones or bolder spring colors like yellow and cobalt blue.
One of the things that impressed me the most about these jeans was the attention to detail. I love that each rivet, both front and back is stamped with Lucky’s signature 4 leaf clover design. The design is incorporated in other places throughout as well, including with the front pocket lining and a small patch along the back. It’s a subtle, but nice touch. The coin pocket also has a unique design with a slit hole and curved bottom which nicely mirrors the curve of the front pockets.
Overall, I impressed by how these jeans managed to be slimming without being too constricting or stiff. The wash is great for a day-to-day wear and pairs nicely with so many different colors. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these jeans quite a bit this upcoming spring! You can buy these jeans online from Lucky’s Website.

I know you might be thinking it’s been quite a while since I did a denim review for you all, and it has, it’s been months, but it’s time to share something new with you again. This time I’m doing a review on the Rag & Bone The Skinny Leather Pants in Washed Black. I got these from Rag & Bone a few weeks ago and they are the first pair of leather pants that I have ever tried before. I can’t compare them to others since I haven’t tried them, but I can compare them to faux leather and these are 100 times better. I don’t think I’m being biased either as these are the first pair that I own and have no others as reference, my opinions on them are exactly how they make me feel and how they fit, how they look etc and they are honest. I hope you like the review! You can buy these leather pants online at Rag & Bone by clicking here.
