The jeans are new, from Target. They are a smaller size. Most of the jeans in my closet are too big now -- even the difference of a mere 2-4 lbs put me over the edge and down a size. So, the quest for replacing my denim wardrobe is even more crucial since I wear jeans ALOT.
These are not a definite keeper, so feel free to tell me what you think (of course, I always want that anyway). Normally I go for a unified dark wash, believing it is more figure flattering. But I am now officially smaller on bottom than on top, which often means that a lighter pant can create more balance. While I don't want to go for a totally light or faded denim, I thought I'd give the partial faded highlight look a try.
I honestly am not sure. I think the faded part looks ok but the whiskering isn't doing it for me...it hits right at the wides part of the thigh. So, yes, no...maybe?
The rest of the outfit is a sort of no-brainer. The faux layered top is a John Paul Richards from Macy's -- can't really go wrong with black & white. The necklace is from Target, the bracelet from Lord & Taylor. The Maryjane pumps are 2nd hand Naturalizers.
PS: I know the pants are a wee bit too long, if I keep them they'll be hemmed :)
