DenimBlog has now got a brand new Spring theme! With the weather warming up and the dark denim fading into lighter washes, we thought it would make sense to spruce up the site and give it a lighter and fresher feel. We still kept it denim appropriate with some shots of the jeans on the sides while incorporating the coloured flowers.
DenimBlog would also like to thank all of you for being fans and part of the community. It’s nice to see so many people loving the wonderful fabric, denim! If you are new to the site then welcome!

I was really excited to finally receive these M2F jeans from them in the mail as I have been in love with the brand since I first heard about them. Those of you who read DenimBlog often will know I am a huge fan of colour so it’s great that a denim brand has finally come around that makes vintage looking washes in lots of colours!
I wanted to start by saying that these jeans are so soft! The denim feels like butter and it’s really smooth and comfortable against the skin. It’s lightweight as well so it’s perfect for the warmer weather, it’s really breathable. Being so light in colour will really help reflect the heat too. I also think these jeans are a perfect fit! They are super skinny all the way to the ankle and they have a normal low rise which is just right. The pockets are really simple and only have a little bit of embroidery at the top as you can see and I think that’s a good point to have on a coloured jean, you don’t want them too over the top.
Since pink is my all time favourite colour I chose the Rose shade they have on offer. I was torn between picking the purple or the yellow as well but pink is more versatile in my opinion and I’m really glad I picked this shade. I love how they do the washes, they are completely faded and look so worn in, they definitely have that vintage and sun bleached look to them. It’s really nice to have new jeans feel just like they are your favourite pair you have spent ages breaking in and have made really soft and worn out.
I took a size 28 in these and I am glad I did as they do run quite tight. I’m normally between a 27 and a 28 so I would recommend going with your bigger size if you are between sizes. The denim is very stretchy though so they are not uncomfortable at all, even though they fit snug all over you can still move in them and feel relaxed. That’s another thing I love about the jeans. They do look really small when you get them out of the package but sometimes I am suprised with that in general because of how much jeans can expand with stretch.
I do think these M2F Jeans are so much fun! They are going to be perfect to wear all Summer because of how light the washes are and the array of colours they come in. They are definitely everything I expected them to be, if not more. I have already received a few compliments wearing them for the first time so I would definitely recommend the brand to you.
We have already started seeing celebs in the brand like Whitney Port, LeAnn Rimes and Maria Menounos so I hope we will see more soon! Singer22.com have just ordered them in so you can now be the first to have them by preording them at their website for only $130 here. They will ship on 30th May. That’s another great point about M2F Jeans, they have a lower price tag than most premium denim. As always, if you have any questions about the jeans, just leave a comment and I will answer you as soon as I can!

UPDATE – I have updated this review with better photos because the original ones were not very good. The lighting was bad and they were not very clear. The original post was made on the 11th June 2010 in case you were wondering.
This weeks denim review from me is for the brand new Rich & Skinny cargo denim leggings. I got these 2 weeks ago and they are so cute!! I fell in love with them when I saw them in their Fall 2010 Look Book that I published a while ago. I had to have them as I am loving the cargo pant trend and having a pair of denim ones I really like the idea of. I hope to be reviewing more denim cargos soon too!
I found these denim cargos run quite small, I’m normally a 26/27 in Rich & Skinny and these leggings are a 27 and super tight in the waist, I would definitely prefer to size up to a 28 with these. I know it’s always really hard to judge your sizing in jeans, they vary from pair to pair so much! It all depends on the denim and it’s stretch factor as well.
Putting the sizing issue aside, I find these cargo leggings to be really hot! They are of denim legging material so they are extremely stretchy and soft, they mold to your body shape and fit really snug. They have 3 buttons at the waist band to add to that cargo feel and the pocket placement on the legs is in a great place, I think they are perfectly positioned. I really like that they are on the front of the legs instead of on the side, that makes them quite unique.
The wash is also a rich, deep, dark blue, it’s gorgeous! It has such a depth to it and it looks really premium. Some washes on jeans you can get and they don’t look very nice or they look a little cheap. This wash doesn’t look cheap at all, it looks like it has a lot of strength in the colour and boldness to it. The back pockets are also really nice, they are quite different to the normal Rich & Skinny pockets as they have flaps on but they are still very pretty. They also have the trademark R on the bottom of the back pocket but it’s a very dark blue. I find the copper coloured hardware on these jeans really matches the wash beautifully, it stands out and I like that as well!
I’m doing a new layout for the reviews now to help them load faster, 1 main images and then the rest are gallery images so you can select which photos you want to view or scroll through them. If I don’t do it this way I will put them with a more button so you can click the post and view every image. I don’t want to take up the whole of the DenimBlog front page with my reviews, haha.
I’m definitely not disappointed with these Rich & Skinny cargo leggings at all, they are just as I expected them to be! Flattering, soft, stretchy and very pretty. If you love these as much as I do and want to get a pair then I definitely recommend sizing up one size from your normal Rich & Skinny sizing. I want more of these cargos in different washes! Especially the Aloe wash which we are running a contest for right now! I’m not sure when this particular wash will be available but I will definitely keep you informed!
