My Favorite Things: The Perfect Pair Of Jeans

Do you have a favorite pair of jeans?  I do-- or did, rather.  And I have been desperately hunting for a new pair for the past year.  All you women know that finding a great pair of jeans that both fit and flatter is no easy task.




Enter the Blues Jean Bar.  It's an awesome upscale denim boutique (with locations around the country) where the sales associates are actually known as "jeantenders," meaning that instead of keeping the products on the floor for you to peruse yourself, they keep a variety of jeans behind the bar, you tell them what you're looking for (i.e dark wash skinny jeans or medium rinse lowrise bootcut), and they select a few jeans for you to try on based on your body type and preference.  A simple, yet amazing concept.




A few years ago my bff Alexis won a private jeans & cocktail party at the BJB in a silent auction. I attended and found my most favorite pair of jeans ever. I wore those straight leg Serfontaines so often and so hard that they are basically unwearable now. A sad realization, for sure. I was even sadder to find out that Serfontaine has since gone out of business. After months of scouring the internet for a replacement for my beloved favorite jeans and endless trips to the department stores I decided it was time to enlist the help of the ladies at the BJB again. Luckily, Alexis and I went in on another private jeans party at Minds Matter's silent auction and we finally hosted our event last week.



The ladies at the Blues Jean Bar did not disappoint. I brought in my old favorite jeans, told them my sob story, and they got right to work helping me find a worthy replacement. They recommended Paige Denim-- a brand I have never tried before-- they were the first pair I tried on and I'm in love! They are comfy, a little stretchy, and the fit is amazing-- no muffin tops, no extra fabric bunching-- just right.  I even bought a pair of Paige skinnies too.  I think I found a new favorite after all!




I'm so excited to get these jeans tailored and then style them up for the fall. The skinny jeans are perfect for tucking into riding boots-- one of my favorite fall accessories for both work and weekends. And the straight legs will look phenomenal with a good pair of heels and a jacket for a Saturday night in Chicago.  I had a little fun putting together a few looks for fall below that I am anxious to try out... bring on the denim and sweater weather!

What is your "go to" brand when it comes to perfect jeans?  Do you have any tips for finding a flattering pair?
