Getting My Skinny Jeans® On! Give Away

THE ONLY OTHER LOGO THAT MATTERS

If you were to look at my jeans drawer, you would find the color blue. Just blue. All mostly boot cut. Not a single pair skinny. I’ve looked at skinny jeans out of the corner of my eye like, “yea, I don’t think so!”

I think the last time I wore skinny jeans was in the 90s…EARLY 90s at that. I just haven’t been able to put a pair on.

Now, let’s talk about color. I’m not a colored jeans kind of gal. hmmm let me rephrase that. I wasn’t a colored jeans kind of gal. Honestly, I’d never, eh-ver put a pair on. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Then I had an opportunity to wear skinny jeans that were colored.

Skinny Jeans

Oh man, I was going out on a limb. I figure, this is the best way to do it! I can review them and if I’m horrified by what I’m testing out, I can tell the company “um, thanks, but no thanks.” What I’ll be telling Skinny Jeans is, “plan on sending me a rainbow of colors.”

HA! My daughters would probably faint if they read those words. They know me. They know the box I live in with my clothes: no patterns, no crazy, bright colors, no frills, etc. The times they are a changin’!

I asked Skinny Jeans to send me a pair of their Team Colors collection and the colors I chose were as “mellow” as possible. hahaha Yea, I went for color, but tried to take the “safest” ones possible. When I got the gold pair in my package I was a little nervous. Also, ordering jeans online makes me worried because most lines of jeans fit completely different so who knows how they work on my body. Plus, I wear “Tall” jeans. Ugh, they are so hard to find.

The telling moment was when I slipped them on. First I my reaction was, “Oh my gosh, they totally fit me!” My second reaction was, “I love these jeans!” hahahaha Totally not the reaction I was expecting from myself.

Skinny Jeans Gold

I was so thrilled that they were long enough to touch the top of my feet. That’s my length test. Not to my ankles, not to where the ankle and foot come together…the TOP of my feet. I prefer them to even fall to my heel. What I didn’t realize when I told them the jeans I wanted was they’re made with Spandex so they really fit your body well!

My next test was going out into public. Being someone who doesn’t step out of her box when it comes to fashion, walking out to the house in gold jeans wasn’t easy. I know that sounds silly, but I don’t like attention focused on me and I thought, holy moly, yellow jeans will definitely draw attention.

Coming out from underneath my rock, I realized, “dude, you’re not the only one wearing colored jeans!” lol Fred and our kids went bowling and I thought it would be a fun way to break them in. When my oldest son and I were getting ready to head out the door, I realized we pretty much matched! I was wearing grey, purple and gold. He was wearing his Vikings football sweatshirt that were exactly the same colors! I couldn’t convince him to wear his Vikings baseball hat.

Team Colors

We got to the bowling alley and aside from a few glances, no one stared an pointed! Go figure! =) I was so comfortable in the jeans I finally forgot about the color and just really enjoyed how they felt and how happy I was to have stepped out of my comfort zone. And I’m not kidding. I already know that I want a pair of their medium red jeans and probably the dark or medium gray. Heck, if they ever want a spokesperson, they can absolutely call me!

Now, speaking of colors, these gold Skinny Jeans are going to work well for sports that I watch. Like I said before, they’re Vikings colored so it’ll go perfect with my Percy Harvin jersey. Fred and his kids love the Steelers, but I can’t ever see myself wearing black and gold. Great guy, but I’m sticking to my Vikings! My girls’ college is purple and gold, but more of a true gold, but I’d wear my jeans and their school shirts in support. I think I may need a pair of purple Team Colors for my Vikings and their college! I’m telling you, a rainbow of colors at my fingertips!

Skinny Jeans Tag

So, they sold me. Not just on their Team Colors line, but I’ve been wanting to try out a couple of their other lines as well. We shall see! The construction of the Skinny Jeans does exactly what they say they will do, they “skinny-fy” your lower half! Let me just say, the jeans put a smile on my face where that’s concerned.

And last but most importantly, these jeans are made in the USA! “These jeans are All American-- the denim is milled in the US and the jeans are cut, sewn and washed in Los Angeles, CA.”

Now, it’s time for you to win a pair of these awesome Team Colors Skinny Jeans!

*I received a pair from Skinny Jeans for review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Hmmm. Tough choice... Do I got with the Dark Blue or Dark Green for "safety"? Or the Bright Blue, Bright Red, Orange, or Turquoise for a fun new adventure? I don't have any "colored" pants... Could be fun to try something new!
