Jean Lust

Hi my name is Ashley and I have an obsessions with designer jeans. 

Thankfully I'm not alone in my obsession. Two of my girlfriends, Maggie and Jocelyn, also share this great love. It really is an amazing thing the lengthy conversations we can have over jeans!

So when I had a Facebook conversation with Joc over jeans yesterday and a phone convo with Maggie over....yes.....jeans.....I took it as a sign that today's topic should be about my denim love
.   Maggie, we need updated pics pronto! Jocelyn, how do we not have ANY pics? We need to fix that!

I've been on a little jean hiatus since I picked up quite a few pairs the year before buuuut I'm starting to get that itch for a new pair. Outside of football and Peppermint Mocha Lattes at Sbucks, it's literally one of the only things that gets me excited about fall. 

Here are some I'm loving: 

(I have these in pink and blue but loving the white!)

Paired with an off-the-shoulder sweater and some suede booties.....these would be perfect for fall!

I'm thinking these paired with a 3/4 blazer and some flats would be the perfect plane outfit for a business trip!


What's a jean post without my favorite brand?!


I've been obsessed with these since I first spotted them on Vanessa Minnillo. Perfect for a casual date night with a soft cashmere hoodie and some puma tennies.

What's your favorite brand of jeans? 
Are you a jean snob? 
If yes, let's be friends! 

If no, you probably hated this post.

Happy Friday Dolls! 
XO, A

I love ALL jeans, but I have such trouble finding jeans that fit me (and are within my budget) because I have a very athletic build, a big booty, and I'm 5'1" ... so if you have suggestions, lets go shopping!

Kayla said...

I need some A pockets pronto now that I'm not getting fatter from being prego.

Rorie said...

Sadly I never picked up the love for designer jeans like I did designer shoes. Gimme any pair of skinny jeans and I'm happy!

Ashley said...

I'm totally a jean snob! I love me some designer jeans too! My person fav is Joe's Jeans! Love 'em...I have some 7's too, but I def wanna try some True Reg ones! LOVES THIS POST!!! ;)

I would LOVE some red jeans for football season. Not quite sure if I could pull them off, but I would love to try!

annahita said...

I love me some Seven Jeans! I'm totally with you on this one, the quality just makes you feel better!

Katie said...

I love good jeans too. My favorites are True Religion by far just because of how comfortable they are and I like the wash the best. oh and the pockets. But I also am all about finding other brands that are cheaper that look like you paid a lot more for them..those are wonderful too ;)

Ashley said...

I also love jeans but I have a hard time finding ones that look fabulous on me. Weird huh? I may have to take your advice and pick some amazing ones out next time I am shopping.

Yay for the "Jean Snob" post! And my own tag-your girl is moving up in the world! Here's my jean run-down:
First ever designer pair-Lucky's back when they weren't at TJ, and when I was a size 25. They accentuated my then tiny-ness. Next on the roster-my pink A-pockets (just like yours) that I picked up in D.C. great casual fit and wash, but I had them taken up and they ended up too short for anything but flops and loafers. Bummer. Also around that time, I was gifted a beautiful pair of Citizens Ingrid Flare, Favorite and Most Versatile Jeans. . . PERIOD! They lasted forever, even with my regular washings! The last two have been a pair of True Religion flares, and Antik Denim. Two polar opposites on the "stretch" factor. The True Religions are tricky, because they give me a Kim Kardashian butt, and the Antik demin are a little to Ed Hardy for me now with the pony hair on the back pockets. After our great "denim care" debate last night, and some research. I'm looking forward to breaking in a pair of dry denim from Earnest Sewn and maybe Nudies!

Jocelyn said...

I LOVE all the jeans you posted. I have those Citizen Dani Cropped jean and they are awesome. Can't wait to hear which pair of jeans you pick up next!!

Greer's Gossip said...

I have a little obsession over jeans too! My favorite it Joe, but I also have some pretty fabulous Citizens and Sevens as well. I am currently in the market for some Paige in my life! :)

Rosie said...

First off in response to your comment on my "Mad Men" post, you should totally start watching it, you will be hooked, especially because you work in the field. Second I am a total jean snob, my favorite brand is J Brand, you can wear them multiple times and they sustain their snug fit which I love because I try to keep the dark hue on my jeans as long as possible.

Sarah Elizabeth said...

uhhh yeah I def share this lust...7's and citizens are my favs!

californiadreamin said...

I love all of those jeans!! I have yet to buy a designer pair of jeans, but this winter Im doing it!

Alex said...

Thanks, now I have a horrible urge to go by jeans!! I'm a 7 for all mankind girl all the way. In the fall, I pretty much live in their skinny jeans. NEED NEW JEANS NOW!!

second...i LOVE all these jeans! I must admit...jeans are fabulous and I am a jean whore/snob

i think my favorites have to be Joes and Seven...SO SO comfy and i like dark jeans. I found a pair of HEINOUS white-wash-ish jeans from middle school and it made me want to go back in time and bitch slap myself for wearing them

lovers you!

Oh my gosh, I'm a total jean snob, I only wear designer jeans! My favorite jeans right now are my Rock & Republic jeans, but I'm a huge Sevens fan as well but am always looking for new brands!

natasha {schue love} said...

I love designer jeans too! Anything to make the butt look better, right?!

Chelsea said...

im just a snob.


hehehe i so funny. i refused to wear jeans when i was younger. my dad told me everytime i did, he would pay me $5. i need to collect on that.

Major Gal said...

I'm a citizens of humanity girl, but i also love my sevens and hudsons. i have an old pair of chip and peppers from the bloomies in soho and i adore them. they make my butt look incredible!

Abby said...

I'm not a jean snob but you may have converted me. Those jeans are all amazing! I esp love the red leggings!

lisa elizabeth said...

I totally am a jean snob. My faves are Paige Denim and Joes!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

haha - i'd love to get into a pair of designer jeans but my body was so not made for them (this girl is 5'3 - you know this has been a life long issue for me ;)). the only brands that really fit me are GAP and Aeropostle. i'm totally obsessed with all of GAP's wide leg jeans and boyfriend ones. as long as i can pair with some chunky heels, i'm happy!

Megan said...

I'm totally not a jean snob. I really need to be since my butt needs major help, but we seriously have nowhere to buy them and I'm scared to buy online.

Brianna said...

I am SUCH a jean snob! let's be friends (: my faves are Joe's & Paige but definitely love some Rock & Republics from time to time. And I HEART peppermint mocha lattes from sbucks as well. love Fall!

Nuha said...

looooooooooveeeeee those red skinnies!!

Tabadoo said...

I think we're destined to be besties. And I think we should also, courtesy or our cyber-relationship, be given Every pair of 7's, Paige, Hudsons, Citizens and any other pair we so choose as our reward. I totally think each company could just write it off. :)
