Gee, Beija-Flor Brings Jean Joy

29 Nov

Last week, I was lucky enough to be in Greenville for the Beija-Flor jeans warehouse sale.  The tiny space off of Augusta was filled with hundreds of pairs of gorgeous denim masterpieces.  It was heavenly.  The fabric is soft and breathable, and the cuts are flattering.  The majority of the sale jeans were flare styles, but they design all styles and cuts.  They even make my absolute favorite style – the jegging!  I had some trouble finding a good pair of flares for my body (they fit in the waist and fell baggy around my legs), but I stumbled upon a cozy pair of bootcut jeans that had a smooth and comfortable fit.

I got my pair for an incredible $20…and absolute steal!  When I slide them on, I can tell that these Brazilian beauties will be a staple item in my closet for a good while.  I hope that once I get out of college and get a real job (fingers crossed), I can indulge in another pair or two to round out my closet.  I can’t wait to see the popularity of this quality brand grow in the years to come!

Gee, I’m In Love With UO Jeggings

30 Jul

That’s right, jeggings.  A few months ago, I purchased my first pair of denim leggings from Urban Outfitters.  They essentially resemble skinny jeans.  “Why not just buy skinny jeans, then?,” you might ask.  Because, I say, jeggings are a whole different level of stylish comfort.

Jeggings

Here are the pluses:

  • No fussy buttons and zippers with these babies.  They have a comfortable elastic waist so you can easily slip the things on and off.
  • The denim material is stretchier and feels much lighter than the rough, thick denim that doesn’t always feel so nice after a long day in skinny jeans.
  • They have cute/handy butt pockets.
  • They look like regular jeans.

Don’t get me wrong, here – jeggings are not meant to be a replacement for jeans entirely.  I still cling to my Joe’s and my Paper Denim & Cloth jeans.  But when paired with a long top, jeggings are absolute perfection that spice up the jean routine.  And since I wear long tops all the time, I am a huge fan and advocate for the jeggings (in case you hadn’t noticed).  Pure genius, I say.

In fact, urbanoutfitters.com just marked them down from $39.00 to $19.99!  It’s like Christmas came early!

Girls, before you roll your eyes or chuckle at the idea, just give it a go.  You, too, might just fall in love.
