I Can’t Believe it Has Happened: I’m in Love with a Pair of Jeans

I don’t wear jeans often. I find them uncomfortable: itchy, stiff, unforgiving, tight. (Save for my one pair of old Levi’s skinnies that I wear a couple times a month when my black cigarette pants are dirty. Like today.)

Then I was told a pair of MiH jeans would change my mind… by the brand’s reps. I’ve heard that line before.

Magic jeans: The Skinny Marrakesh in Joplin

But something kind of magical has happened. MiH sent over a pair of their cult-favorite Marrakesh jean in the updated skinnier leg flare (yes, a free pair of jeans is magic in itself), and I am in love. They’re so comfortable that after trying them on, I checked the label to make sure I hadn’t received the pair of PajamaJeans I had ordered. Kidding. I didn’t order those. They are cozy like sweatpants, but flattering in the way only expensive designer denim seems to be. I went with the Joplin wash, which offers a particularly soft fabric, but each pair of Marrakesh jeans comes in a stretchy fit. The Skinny Marrakesh ($205) sits at a mid-rise position and is cut to elongate the leg. It’s like the name says: Made in Heaven. Sold at Elements and The Blues Jean Bar. Don’t miss the less traditional spring/summer 2013 looks including bright, tri-colored skinnies, bleach-on-black cropped ankle legs, and even dainty scalloped shorts in sweet yellow and sky blue.
