I’m so proud to introduce to you my newest guest blogger, Yoyo. She’ll be doing a little more introduction of herself in this post, but she’s a fiercely fabulous college student who has gotten a little bit addicted to designer denim (I can’t take all the credit, but I like to think I did play a part in it, too!).
One of the best parts of having Yoyo writing is that she not only has a great sense of style (both clothing and writing-wise), she also offers a different view on how brands fit a body type that isn’t mine… and that’s something I know you all will love. So, give her a big welcome, and enjoy!
Hey, my name is Yoyo and I’m a sophomore student at the University of Puget Sound. The fantastic JP has graciously allowed me to start a mini-blog series on different denim and how they work for me.
Here’s a little background on me: I am a sophomore at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA, who is nearly as obsessed with denim as JP. My roommates all think I’m insane for having so many jeans and always wanting more. Like JP, I need to hem most of my denim (I tend to like a 30” inseam). My denim size can range from 30-32 depending on the fabric, cut and/or brand. Overall most jeans fit me near perfect in a size 31. I just have a general shopping obsession and maybe for the readers who wear my size, my reviews might be helpful.
Now that you know a wee bit about me, how about I review one of my favorite denim brands for you?
For me, Joe’s Jeans is like that friend I can always depend on through thick and thin. Joe’s Jeans have a wide variety of styles with the Honey (a bootcut style made for girls with a curvy figure) being one of the most popular. Every single pair of my Joe’s Jeans are super soft (especially my Honey jeans in the Eames wash… they seriously feel like PJs while still looking amazing) and the washes actually hem really well in that they don’t look weird or anything even after I chop off 4 inches or so.
Joe’s Jeans does make a cut called the Provocateur which has a shorter inseam. From my personal experience, the Provocateur can run a little long depending on the wash. One of my pairs fits perfectly while one pair had to be hemmed because they were slightly too long for my liking.
Joe’s Jeans tends to run tts to slightly large which is totally fine by me. It’s nice to have a pair of jeans that have a little leeway for “fat” days. The best thing about Joe’s Jeans, though, is the fact that I feel like I look good while also being comfortable. The soft fabric and the flattering cuts can really boost ones ego while also being comfortable enough for a busy school day. So if you haven’t tried out Joe’s Jeans yet, I highly recommend then you go out and try on a few pairs to figure out which cuts you like then go hunt for deals!
