I tend to be somewhat of a denim collector. I love classic styles as much as the newest silhouette in denim every season. Some of my jeans are of the expensive designer persuasion and others are cheap and trendy, “throwaway fashion” versions from Target. Truth be told however, I double heart love Target jeans too!
But today, I am not coveting inexpensive knockoffs. I am all in for these AG Jodi “leatherette” jeans. They aren’t leather, they aren’t quite faux leather but they do have that sortof appearance from afar. I would guess they are most similar to the “coated” jeans of yesteryear.
They do have that biker chick shine like leather, which can either be dressed up with strappy sandals or down with your favorite sneaks. Myself, I would most likely pair them with cozy blanket coats and some cool menswear-inspired Derbys.
The best part about leatherette though…. no specialty leather cleaning necessary. Wash on cold, baby. Super high style and super low maintenance. What’s better than that?
When I was shopping for my Christmas party outfit several weeks ago, I tried on the most fabulous pants. Too fabulous for my Midwestern town – a town that thinks khakis are dress pants – but fabulous nonetheless. (I love you anyway, town!)
They were so fun to wear while parading around on tip-toes (simulating heels), in the dressing room. And with a navy silk flowy tunic, they were nothing short of monochromatic perfection… that is, for someone who’s big night out doesn’t consist of two young children and serious sorting of sugar packets at the local neighborhood “pub food” place. I mean I love Goldberg’s, but I won’t be wearing sparkle pants there anytime soon.
And what’s better? They are made with lots of stretch by AG Adriano Goldschmied, a very wearable designer label for those of us, who have had children. They called them leggings, but they are very 5-pocket-jean-looking leggings, if you ask me.
No matter, try them on for yourself and make plans. Big plans!
