Look, Ma! No Jeans...



The April People Stylewatch — my favorite mag (sorry, Lucky) — says that 10 percent of its readers own more than 20 pairs of jeans.

Um, I would be of that 10 percent.

I love denim in all its many forms — skinny, straight, flared, cropped, jegging, boyfriend. Jeans are fashion perfection. I even junked my remaining few pairs of J Crew khakis after coming to terms with the fact that they are painfully boring.

One of my few non-jean pants, though, still has decidedly denim styling — but with a good twist. Quite literally. The side seams on these Bishop of Seventh pants curve, making them slimming. The flap pockets are also a cool touch. Love the way the lightweight, fluid fabric drapes, too.

Outfit: Splendid cardi; Daftbird tee; Madewell necklace; Cynthia Vincent for Target gladiators.

Me likey! And I'm with you on the People Stylewatch - I am a recent subscriber after letting my Lucky sub die off - it's so much more entertaining for some reason!

Wow! More than 20 pairs of jeans? I own four. I am behind.

Re: Style Watch vs Lucky. I prefer Style Watch, it's much more approachable whereas Lucky features pieces way, way out of my income bracket.
