Here is the thing. I had been meaning to get out this review on my first pair of Henry & Belle jeans. But I admit, I was slacking. Then the unthinkable happened. Someone dis’ed my Henry & Belle Ideal Ankle Skinny Jeans in French Rose…and on Facebook no less!
Maybe, just maybe that was not the intention. However, when a photo of me appeared on my Facebook timeline due to the ever loving “tagging” feature, I looked like I had packed on about 20…no, make that 50 pounds. Either that, or my hips looked like they had just gone through the mother of all child-birthing (and don’t even try to go and see it if you are friends with me because that picture is now a victim of the other ever popular Facebook feature, the “un-tag”.
Anyway, it was “suggested” that maybe the wash color, French Rose, was just not a flattering color. Or maybe the cut of the jeans is just all wrong for me. So, I am here to set the record straight by getting off my butt -so to speak – and finally writing the review because nobody, nobody I say, dis’s my denim!
Lets just start with the pictures, shall we?
Henry & Belle Ideal Ankle Skinny in French Rose
I suppose there is a reason Eva Longoria, in a recent interview, confessed to “throwing out” all her denim (I’ll be digging through her trash) and keeping only her Henry & Belle Denim. They are comfortable as all get out and fit like a dream. And, I am not the only one who loves the unique French Rose color (Here on Katherine Heigl & Jessica Alba and here on Olivia Wilde and Gisele Bundchen!).
I will express one note on sizing. I went with my true size and they are a bit snug in the waist – but honestly, that could also be all the cheese I ate in Germany this summer (there is a treadmill somewhere with my name on it).
Lastly, friend-who-shall-remain-nameless who took and posted the infamous hip enhancing photo, get rid of that “wide angle” lens, quick, before someone gets hurt. I’m just sayin’.
