Designer Jeans reviews
This weeks review is on a brand of jeans that belong in my top 3, 7 For All Mankind! I’m very fond of this brand because of how amazing their fits are and the range of different washes they come out with. It’s a brand that’s definitely not afraid to experiment and I love that!
I have had these 7 For All Mankind Slashed Knee Gwenevere jeans in Shaia for a while now and I have been living in them. They are just so comfortable! They have 3% stretch and the denim is so soft, they actually almost feel like a jegging but a bit thicker. They have the perfect Gwenevere cut which is actually my favourite cut from the brand, it’s super skinny all the way to the ankle, the rise is the perfect height and they have the classic 7 For All Mankind signature pocket design. I definitely can’t fault the fit of these jeans! I get compliments on the Gwenevere fit quite often because of how flattering it is, it’s definitely a cut I would recommend for anyone wanting skinny jeans from the brand.
Lately, I have been falling for the medium/lighter washes more so than the darker ones, which is odd because I normally like the light washes for Summer and the darker ones for Winter, I think I have done it backwards this year! The wash has a grainy feel to it, it looks like it has mini dots all over it because of how it’s put on the denim, it actually looks like it’s been brushed on but it hasn’t. I love that it looks so different, it really gives it character and the rips in the knees I like a lot too, they make the jeans feel less boring, I’m definitely always up for giving different aesthetics to jeans to make them look different. Now since it’s getting colder, I need these jeans without the slashed knees so I can stay warm!
The photos do make these jeans look a bit darker than they actually are in real life, I would say the Revolve stock photos are quite close to their original wash. I definitely can’t fault anything about this pair either, I love everything about them! Buy these jeans in the sale at Revolve for only $129!

This weeks review is on a brand that has just launched by a celebrity we all know and love at DenimBlog, Jessica Simpson. She recently added denim to her fantastic Jessica Simpson collection and I was really surprised by what I found when I tried them!
At first, I thought to myself, since these jeans don’t cost very much, they can’t be very good as I really only trust the premium denim brands to get it right, but… I was very wrong. I was incredibly taken aback by the fit of these denim leggings actually, they fit like a glove and they are very skinny all the way down to the ankle. I didn’t think the pocket placement on these jeans would be in the right place either, again thinking they were too cheap for anyone to care about that, but they are. They are in the perfect position to give your butt that lifted and rounded look that everyone loves to achieve. The rise is a medium rise and a very good height for a jegging in my opinion. I also love that the logo on the back pocket is very simple, it’s subtle and not over the top as you can see.
The wash on these jeggings I can’t say much about as it is just a pure black. It’s not the blackest wash I have ever seen but it is very dark and of course, like every black jeans I own, they are a hair magnet, haha. The good thing about this wash though is it literally goes with anything and these jeans are exceptionally comfortable, you could sleep in them if you wanted, they honestly are that comfy. I love how they feel against the skin, they are beautiful. The tags on these jeans are incredibly pretty too! They are very detailed and very cute. I know nobody cares about the tags but I personally love it when a brand makes an effort right down to things like the tags, the bags etc, it shows they care about their product.
I decided to style these jeans a little different to the clothes I normally wear which are quite girly, I thought I would opt for a more edgier look as I don’t often wear black jeans. I like excuses to try new styles!
Now combined with the price tag of these jeans being only $49! Yep, $49! and the great attention to detail the Jessica Simpson team have given to these jeans, I would say they are a win win and you should definitely own a pair! They look like they are cut for real women with curves and that’s fantastic! Buy these jeans online at the Jessica Simpson site for only… $49! I still can’t get over that price, seriously!

So I thought for this weeks review, I would do something a little different and try a cut that I have never tried before. Levi’s sent these to me and I didn’t think I would like them at first as I haven’t really been a fan of the boyfriend skinny jeans but I was wrong! I have worn them about 6 times already and considering the amount of jeans I own, that’s a lot of times for me to wear a pair of jeans! Haha.
The fit of these jeans was something that surprised me actually, I always thought boyfriend skinny jeans would be really unflattering and more like carrot pants which I am definitely not a fan of, well at least I don’t think I am, I’ve never tried them but I imagine they would make my short legs even shorter. These Levi’s jeans are very roomy in the crotch area and the butt area which makes them incredibly comfy and easy to move in. That’s why I love them most for just running errands and going somewhere that I need comfort. They are also not too tight at the ankles which can make them look strangely out of proportion. The way these are cut is great and I am pretty sure, if I wanted to try this trend, I couldn’t have tried a better pair. This is also my first time trying Levi’s so I was quite happy to know I like them.
The wash is a very light medium wash, it’s got some very nice whiskering across the lap area and it’s got distressing patches on one of the knees, it definitely looks quite authentic, like an older pair of vintage Levi’s which have faded over the years. The denim is also very comfy! Since these are a sample I can’t actually tell you what they are made from as they have no tags, however they do feel stretchy and like a pure cotton denim so I would assume they have about 2% stretch to them and 98% cotton.
Speaking of Levi’s though, hopefully I am going to find a Curve ID jean that fits me! I tried the Demi curve and it was just a little too big in the legs and the Bold curve was no good at all as I don’t have that type of body shape. I haven’t tried the Slight curve but I know that one will be the one for me. I took the test on the Levi’s site and it matched me with that cut too so I can’t wait to review a pair of those for you!

This weeks review is on a pair of jeans I have been lusting after for a very long time! Siwy Hannah crop jeans in Bluestorm. I fell in love with them earlier this year when all of the celebs were wearing them. I just love the amount of distressing they have. I have to admit, the sun was shining in my eyes and the wind was really uncooperative, it was blowing my hair everywhere so please excuse that, haha.
I’ve always loved the fit of the Hannah jeans because they are really skinny, I love how they hit just at the ankles as well, even though they are supposed to be cropped, it’s perfect for my legs as I have quite short legs. The rise is quite low as well, I think it’s around a 7 inch rise so it’s the perfect height. One thing I find funny about Siwy jeans is I seem to suit the shorts a lot more than the jeans, the shorts just seem to be more flattering on my butt. I’ve found it hard getting used to the pocket shape of Siwy jeans as well, I wasn’t sure at first if the round part of the pocket at the bottom really flattered my butt, I thought they would be more suited to those with a more flatter tush. But I think, after getting used to the pockets, I do like them. I will be honest though, for my figure, I do prefer the plain pockets like that of Paige jeans or some Diesel Matic’s. I’m really fussy with my back pockets. But depending on your figure, Siwy jeans can look amazing! Take Ashley Tisdale, Heidi Montag, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian for example.
The wash however, really really makes me love these jeans!! I’m obsessed with the wash, it’s such a pretty dark blue but the main thing I love most is the huge amount of distressing on the front. I go crazy for distressing and I can’t get enough of it, I think it adds so much character to the jeans. It makes them a lot more unique. The wash is really quite soft as well, it’s a bit stiff to start out with, like most jeans, but once you break it in it’s very comfortable. I hope Michelle brings out more washes like this for her coming seasons! I know she has Temptest, snowstorm and blackstorm and I think they are all beautiful!
I’m wearing another brand I love with the jeans too, Lauren Moshi. I have on her bow tee and it’s SO comfy!! The fabric is as soft as silk! Both the jeans and the tee were sent to me by Apparel Addiction so thank you for that! Buy these jeans at Apparel Addiction for $198 and buy this tee for $88.
