Try-Ons (Multiple Styles)

Last year during my epic jean shorts try-on the clear winners were a pair under $60. Not the designer denim. Not the $150+ pair. A budget-friendly pair well under $100. I was determined to repeat this experiment in 2022, except this time, all denim shorts are under $100 and most pairs are under $75. I tried high-rise, distressed and even...
I've been looking for budget-friendly alternatives to my fave designer jeans, but what's better than affordable dupes to MOTHER denim? Actual MOTHER jeans on sale!
I've been attempting to find budget-friendly alternatives to my favorite MOTHER jeans, but what's better than budget-friendly alternatives to MOTHER denim? Actual MOTHER denim on sale! When I look in my closet (or more accurately my bathroom floor) and calculate which pairs of jeans are truly my most-worn, there's no question MOTHER denim is the winner. For years...
You know those denim brands that pop up on Nordstrom and you're like, "Can they REALLY be all that (and a bag of chips) for under $100?!" I'm here to figure that out. I haven't always been a designer denim gal. In fact, I didn't know what designer denim was until my friend Tracy filled me in during a slow...
Both jeans are a fantastic investment pair. The Citizens of Humanity work great for my height & even a few inches shorter; the GRLFRND pair takes the cake for being the answer to those real long legs, 5’10” + up.
How does that saying go?  “You always want what you can’t have.” As a tall(ish) girl measuring 5’9”, it’s long jeans that pool around my feet that I really want -- and can never seem to find. I expressed this sentiment during a TME Zoom call once, only to be met with (lovingly) rolled eyes from the majority of the...
MOTHER denim wins for the jeans I wear on the daily. The real test: whether I could own just 1 pair of MOTHER jeans or 4 pairs of another brand. Answer: MOTHER. Every time.
For anyone thinking about trying MOTHER denim (or if you already love MOTHER jeans and are itching to try a new style), I’ve put my MOTHER "habit" to use in creating The Ultimate Guide To MOTHER Denim. You can click on each of the links below to go directly to the section you're most interested in. But first...let me...
I'm obsessed with the new FlexX jeans from Express! Made with "ultra hyper stretch" + a flexible waist size. They come in skinny, cropped & flare fits, mid-, high- + super-high rises & multiple lengths for the perfect fit.
I'm obsessed with the new FlexX line of jeans from Express! They're made with "ultra hyper stretch" and a flexible waist size that's supposed to "flex" with you if you go up or down in weight. And since my weight increased after surgery (I mean, bed rest will do that) I thought I'd give them a try. Jeans With...
I've been seeking a perfectly faded pair of black wash, straight-leg jeans for a few years. Hence, another try-on sesh. AGOLDE, Levi's, Madewell, FRAME, Topshop, RE/DONE, Hidden...
Pretty much my favorite item of clothing? Black wash jeans. I make the distinction, "black wash," because solid, dark black jeans don't read as denim -- they look more like black pants. My preference is a perfectly faded black wash that makes every outfit look just a little bit more edgy. That's typically my goal: add a little edge...
I tried on 8 styles of Levi's in various sizes/lengths/washes; 16 jeans in total. Come on the journey as I compare the mainstay Levi's styles in order to -- hopefully -- help narrow your Levi's search.
Ribcage, Wedgie, 501 Originals, 711s; Levi's jeans are a language unto themselves. There's low-stretch, high-stretch, 5-button, zipper, low-rise, mid-rise, high-rise, skinny, straight, cropped, bootcut....AND most are available in different lengths. It's kind of exhausting when all I'm looking to do is buy a pair of jeans. Like the only girl without pierced ears in grade school, everyone else...
I've learned 2 major lessons covering the #NSale: 1) stick to my personal style (hi, straight leg jeans + moto jackets) & 2) invest in those phenomenally well-made pieces.
Hey hey, #NSale party peeps...it's ON. How much better has it been to see some fabulous Anniversary Sale picks on our team here? SO much more helpful, informative and dare I say...more fun than just perusing them online, yeah?! This time of year is no joke around here, but we love it so much. We adore trying on all...
Of the Madewell denim shorts, we wanted to focus on the basic, wear-everyday styles. So we narrowed it to 2: relaxed jean shorts + high-rise denim cutoffs.
Truthfully, I can't remember whose idea it was for us to try Madewell's denim shorts, but once we all started looking more closely, most of us got pretty darn excited. The problem? We were each looking at slightly different pairs of Madewell cutoffs. Madewell makes several different styles of denim shorts, but we wanted to focus on the basic,...
