SKINNY MINNY JEAN
Great fit but they stain everything!
I love these jeans for many reasons. They're extremely comfortable, they fit well and they're a great colour. I find it very difficult to find skinny jeans to fit me but these jeans are perfect in that respect.
However there's something that really lets this garment down... the dye! It rubs off on absolutely everything! At first I thought that a couple of washes would get rid of any excess and fix the problem, but it isn't any better. These jeans have ruined several white cardigans and a few belts. I now have to be extremely careful what I wear them with. A few hours into wearing them my hands and nails are stained with black dye and I always have to wash them on their own. I'm going to try and find something to seal the dye; I hope I can!
Paying a decent amount for a pair of jeans and then being limited as to what you can wear with them is rather frustrating!

I wasn't sure about ordering these jeans having read the reviews. However, I tried them on in store and found them to be really comfortable and flattering. They are also a good length on me which is usually an issue as I have long legs. I bought them along with the conifer green Foxy jumper, they look great together! Having now worn the jeans a couple of times I do find the waist a little loose but not so much the jeans are going to fall down (I do have hips - maybe that's what keeps them up!) Also by the end of the day my hands are blue from dye transfer. Fortunately, the colour doesn't appear to have transferred onto my furniture! Going to keep them as love them anyway!

Only for super skinny minnies with larger waists
Beautiful dark colour -blue in bright light, but can pass for black in low light. Rather long for average height, but not really a problem.
The biggest drawback is the fit - so ridiculously narrow 1n the leg (and I'm a size 8-10) that circulation is restricted when you bend at the knee! But yet they fall down slightly due to baggy waist. Couldn't wait to take off and consign to the charity bag! They wouldn't even fit my teenage daughter!
