Coated Skinnies

I have been searching for the perfect coated black skinny jeans for a while.  I had my heart set on this pair by AG—but unfortunately, they just weren’t meant to be.  I stalked them online for a good few months and planned to buy them when Bloomingdales had their Denim Days sale.  I went to the store, and they were just as beautiful in person as they were online.  The coating is really leather-like, not just shiny like most of the other coated jeans out there.  They just look so rocker and cool… on the hanger, that is. 

On me? Now, that's a wwhhhooollleee other story.  Something about the coating on the jeans rippled when I put them on and literally made my legs look like sausages about to burst out of the casing.  It was horrible.  Not pretty.  At all.  I wanted those jeans so bad that I even tried two sizes up from my usual size (if that’s not a sign of desperation, I don’t know what is).  Still sausage-y.  No good.

Since, the AG’s were a no go, I decided on the Citizens of Humanity pair.  The coating isn’t as nice as the AG pair but they are still pretty.  I also really like the fit.  They are super stretchy (no sausage effect), and slightly high-waisted, so they are very comfortable.  Definitely a good alternative to leather skinnies which are often very constricting.

Moral of the story:  if you are blessed with long skinny legs try out the AG’s because they are beautiful, if  you're less fortunate like me, the Citizens are a good second option. 

 P.S.  For all my fellow Miamians, just a reminder that the Mason Martin Margiela With H&M Collection will be available at the Lincoln Road store starting Thursday, November 15th at 8am.  If the grand opening of the store was any indication, it’s probably going to mob scene.  I personally did not fall in love with any of the pieces in the collection, so I won’t be camping out or anything crazy.  What do you think of the collection
