Wearing Petite Denim – 7 For All Mankind’s Lexie Straight Leg
My first pair of designer denim (oh, that fateful day…) was a pair of – still adored- True Religion Flares.
Since that purchase (which, in my virginal designer denim status at the time, paid waaay too much for) I have experienced many designers, cuts and washes.
However, through all my denim lusts (the pair that can never quite be attained), one nighters (one try and swore never again), infatuations (seemed like a good idea at the time) and devotions (can’t get enough of) I have never quite embraced one of the quintessential denim designer brands – 7 For All Mankind.
Shocking, I know, but all of a sudden I have found myself the owner of three (oops) four items by said designer. I guess you could say it was inevitable. Long story short, I have found myself in possession of a pair of 7FAM bells, Josephine bfs, roll-up shorts and most recent (which this blog is supposed to be about so I will try to get to it) the Lexie Straight Leg
in Jet Oleander.
The Lexie is actually a petite cut and I am, well, not petite. However, I had been looking for a pair of black straight leg jeans for winter that were fitted but not skinnies, did not puddle and were buttastic (can’t believe I just said that). The Lexie seemed to do the trick. So, there you have it – comfortable, stretchy, fitted, clean line, soft, perfect length and in the end, just what I wanted.
7 For All Mankind – definitely NOT a one nighter. (hey, think that could be their next advert. campaign?? ok, maybe not…)
