Rag & Bone “dash” slouchy skinny jeans | they don’t make this style anymore, replaced by the Dre
Rag & Bone Quinn sandals

Splendid tee | mine is size large
So after voicing my frustration on finding boyfriend jeans I love, and that fit my thicker legs, I realized that I like the slightly tapered at the ankle (but still showing a little) look of the slouchy boyfriend style like these Rag & Bone jeans (and the Frame Le Garcon jeans).
Anyway, I’ve decided to stick with the jeans I have for now – I don’t wear them very often in the summer – because they’re all actually quite good. I don’t need anything else; I think I was just in it for the search – or the thrill of trying to find the elusive “perfect” boyfriend jeans for me. But I’m not into that anymore. As I said, there is no “perfect” – or if there is, it’s what is already in my closet. It’s perfect because I already own it…
These really ARE perfect on you, Grechen! These, and your Frame Le Garcon’s. There is a WORLD of difference between the way these jeans flatter and fit and the Goldsigns you had on that you returned. You KNOW your body, you’ve DONE the hard work, and you’ve kept the BEST in your wardrobe. Bravo!!!

I’ve never tried on a pair of Rag & Bone jeans .. I usually stick to Levi’s .. but now that I own every pair of Levi’s Curvy ID .. I must venture out and find new brands .. 🙂

Once again, I gotta agree with Val. You look great, Grechen. Now, if I could only find my best boyfriend jeans. (It’s raining today, so I decided to catch up with comments.)
What I especially like about this entry is the last paragraph. Carrying this kind of self-knowledge and confidence is more important than anything in your closet. Outstanding!

Those seem to fit you beautifully! I’ve finally taken the plunge into the boyfriend jeans pool. There seem to a lot more styles out there now that aren’t cut quite so baggy, which helps on a shortie like me. I have the Le Garcons and just found a nice pair at Madewell yesterday, and they hem for free.

OMG these look great on you. I totally see why you returned the Goldsign. I want these!!!

haha. thanks! try ebay for the jeans, i’ve seen them there off and on. fyi, i sized down to 28 in these, which was two sizes smaller than my “regular” denim size at the time. i’m happier with them now, that they’re just one size down honestly…
I love your reviews. Thanks for the tips.

Hi Gretchen, was thinking of getting some Quinn sandals, are they true to size? I’m a 6.5 but I just hate too small or too large sandals. Thanks for any info!
