WEARING
MiH Paris jeans
Gap cami
Inhabit NY cotton cardigan
Vince flats
Jas M.B. bag (same style, but black)

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.

Oh, and my Inhabit NY cardigan I LOVE (I got it via Gilt quite some time ago) – and it’s on sale now at the Outnet, but did you shop the sample sale yet on Inhabit’s site?? It’s pretty good!!

    Isn’t it great how INHABIT pieces never seem to look old? I’m finally learning that quality trumps quantity everytime. It’s about time!!! (and I love the jeans on you….To me, they look like they fit you just right.) Keep on fertilizing that hair! ;-) It’s growing like crazy.

      yes, my inhabit cotton pieces have held up so well…my only complaint is that the sleeves stretch out. of course, i’m always pushing them up, but i wish there was more elastic or something at the cuff to keep them from falling/stretching so much.

      Thanks, i love the jeans too, it’s just that they fit me so much differently than the model! what else is new…but i always find that very interesting.

    I received two pair of MiH jeans that I ordered from their recent sale, and OMG, they are SO SMALL! I’m going to keep them and use them as motivation to lose a few pounds with the hope they one day fit. They really are cute.
