A: I bought two pairs of jeans from BR to review. I'd fully intended on keeping one of them until I saw the photos. Help.
M: Well now I need to see.
A: *sends photos*
M: Yeah no.
M: Just nah.
A: Thank you. They were $26 and $46 and meh.
A: I should save for my true love jeans, yes?
Okay, so the first pair is the Distressed Straight Cropped Jean which were a deeply discounted $26 (and are nearly out of stock.) I bought them because the stock photo led me to believe there was potential:
Slouchy, distressed, kinda cute, right? Heh:
Don't I look thrilled? And the fun doesn't stop there, the rear view is where it really falls apart fast:
NEWP. I love the undone hem but there is no excuse for those dumpy mom-jean pockets. Just none. I mean, there's a reason our blog is called Looks Good From The Back, because that's what you should want, right?
The next pair I tried was the Indigo Skinny Ankle Jean (somehow different from the identical medium wash Skinny Ankle Jean and the Bi-Stretch Skinny Ankle Jean and the Heritage Skinny Ankle jean. Come on, BR. You're killing me.)
They're...fine. I mean, nothing wrong with them except they're completely underwhelming. The fit was okay, the rise was fine, and the rear view is definitely an improvement over the last pair:
I paid $46 for them (they're $48 right now) which isn't a bad price for jeans. But! They started sliding down in the back seconds after I'd put them on and that's such a pet peeve of mine. Too much stretch. (Is this a universal problem? I just hate jeans that won't stay put.) And honestly, I just think I can do better. They don't spark joy, you guys.
