ODE TO JAMIE
So... um... do you think I might have a bit of a problem? Nothing hints at addiction better than a pile of the same cut of jeans in (let's face it) pretty similar washes. But I am utterly unashamed and would make every purchase again. Ten times over. These jeans are just SO good. Buying two more pairs in the past week prompted me to think it might be a nice idea to share my passion on the blog seeing as I'm a distressed wash away from being a pair of Jamie jeans myself.
Why these little beauties are basically my 'perfect storm' of denim:
1. They are slightly high waisted (so no fears about the awful exposure that can follow with other cuts when you want to say... pick something up off the floor). This is also much more flattering - no muffin top.
2. Crucially for me - they are designed to fall at the ankle. Not too high above it, and not too low. Just right. I find having jeans hit the right bit of your ankle lends an effortless, pulled together Parisian vibe to most outfits. I'm a person that sometimes has to resort to tucking my jeans under at the bottom in order to achieve this. No need with Jamie. They are the perfect length for ballet pumps and loafers, and down right ideal for wear with ankle boots like Isabel Marant Dickers, when it's nice to see a flash of ankle.
3. They are made out of a material that actually lets you bend your knees without summoning the super human effort some jeans call for when you want to walk a normal walk, or lunge, should the fancy take you. I HATE being restricted by jeans, and frankly there is just no need to be. People say you look your best in your clothes when you're comfortable. This may not be the case for evening dressing I'll admit, but to be anything other during your down time would be sad. These jeans let you move, but they don't go down the jegging route (like Leigh jeans do) - they retain a jean thickness and a jean material.
All in all - the perfect jean in my opinion. The latest additions to my Jamie collection are the navy ripped knee ones and the classic clean blue/indigo ones. You can find them here and here. I'm holding myself back at the moment, but it won't be long until I have a white pair in the collection for Spring/Summer.
I urge you to run out and stockpile them, before I buy them all.
