Pure Awesomeness – J Brand Waxed Legging Jeans

July 4, 2012

I have been literally living in this pair of jeans lately. They are by far my favorite Jean’s brand – J Brand. They have been consistently making great jeans that have a very good fit in super luxe fabric. The fit of 901 Legging Jeans is perfect for me – it’s skinny from top to bottom, and it’s stretchy without losing its shape. And it’s not the usual boring plain black denim (though I love them as well), they have a real leather appeal with a soft metallic finish. (not as shiny as on the website, but complex enough to have people wonder). If you have been tossing around the idea of having a pair of leather pants, I highly recommend you to start with this one!

Your floral blazer is what makes this look so special. It’s a great pop of color against the basic black and it’s perfect with your ombré hair 🙂

Thank you so much Eileen, you are so kind! Yes I find it’s much easier for me to wear dark clothes since I have ombre hair!
Oh btw I bought the Lumière D’Artifices Beiges based on your recs, can’t wait to receive it 🙂

I hope you like LD’AB as much as I do.

I like this floral blazer on you! It isn’t something I would pick it myself as I don’t think I could pull it off. But you ROCK!


Reika July 5, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Annie thank you so much for your kind comment 🙂 I never thought floral blazer would suit me until I tried it on. So you gotta give it a chance!

Another love we share, Reika! I love J Brand for their ultimate perfect fit and material too! Oh yes, I have been eyeing with a “leather” pant for some time now!

This pair looks perfect on you! What do you think about tge sizing? Do they run true to size? I have the Super Skinny Midrise Jeans in size 28, and they fit perfectly. With Current Elliott I’m a size 27 though…


Reika July 5, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Hi Jess, so great to hear from you again!
Lol how good it is our taste is so similar! And we are always eyeing the same items!!
Current Elliott does vanity sizing, so I find their sizing is always a size smaller than regular jeans brands. As for J brand, I have around 6 pairs of jeans by J brand, and they are all true to size and consistent across all styles.


Jess July 8, 2012 at 11:22 am

Vanity sizing lol… Yes true! 😉

Thanks for your reply , Reika! I’m going to get myself a pair now I guess… 🙂

Btw, my Current Elliott Floral Shorts have arrived – absolutely love them. And since I’m so into floral print bottoms lately, I got myself two more Ankle Jeans with a floral print by Current Elliott! Let’s hope this trend isn’t going out of style anytime too soon though! 🙁

WOW! HOT!!!!! I love the jeans!


Elizabeth July 4, 2012 at 11:50 pm

As usual, I love your style posts. Very pretty outfit. My sister has a pair of skinny coated denim, and she swears by them! I think I may “borrow” them soon . . . 😉


Renee July 5, 2012 at 12:14 am

<3 <3 Another perfect 10!! Love this on you. I have been contemplating with J jeans for the longest time and I refuse to buy it online without trying it. The Zara blazer, I am flipping coins with that too. Saw that online so many times but I kept denying myself. *melts*


Reika July 5, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I swear by J jeans, esp the new ones made of lux Japanese twill! You need to give a try 🙂
I like Zara blazers too..they are so affordable and fits well.

I love what you’ve done to your hair! 🙂

I prefer G-Star denims as they fit my body contours better.


Claire July 6, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I am a fan of floral blazer paired with black, looks classy but with a hint of colour. J Brand are so comf! I also like Zara blazers <3 I really love your hair!


Maria July 9, 2012 at 9:21 am

great hair Rei! what have you done with it?


Reika July 9, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Thanks Maria! I had balayage highlights so it has the ombre effect. In these photos I curled my hair and styled with a sea salt spray.
