I got these jeans recently after a lot of indecision, and another round of markdowns at Barney’s (they were $69), but after wearing them around all morning, I’m quite pleased. Sharon got them too, and initially complained that they were too tight, but after wearing, loosened up, so I decided to go for it. They run a bit small (but all slim fit jeans tend to run small on me), and as you can see, they are NOT CROPPED on me, nor are they mid-rise. My pair is a different fabric content than the one linked to at Shopbop, and the higher cotton (92%) is what I love the most about these. They’re very comfortable, but as I mentioned, they’re low rise on me (I’m short-waisted) so I definitely have to wear long tops/cardigans with them. Overall, I’m pretty impressed with my first pair of MiH jeans, and would love to try other styles, but I can tell already that they don’t fit my curves/small waist as well as AG/Goldsign does.
The Vince shoes I got to replace my TOMS – my pair is VERY old (I got them from TOMS before they even launched) and not fit to wear out in public anymore. I tend to use my TOMS to throw on to walk the dog, go to pure barre in the mornings, or just to slip something on really quick. When I went to Nordstrom to buy a new pair, however, I was really disappointed in the fit – they’re much more narrow than my old pair, and despite trying on several sizes, I couldn’t find a pair that really felt good on my foot. So, I went with this pair of slip-ons by Vince 😉
I went down a half-size, as per the recommendation on the Vince website, and love the way these feel. I did have to wear them around the house for a few hours to stretch them a little, but now that they’re not quite as snug as the first time I put them on, they’re super-comfortable. And I fell hard for the leopard print…I highly recommend these (they come in lots of other colors) as a lightweight, fun alternative to tennis shoes, or loafers – they’ll be great for traveling.
