I found my new favorite brand for jeans and I wanted to share. For the last few weeks now I have been looking for a new pair of jeans. I’ve been trying to find a high waisted pair that I can wear with bodysuits and just everyday life. Let me tell you, the struggle has been real. I’ve been living in my Paige jeans for a while now, but couldn’t find one that was exactly what I wanted. I then started asking around and looking to see what other brands are out there and a few people recommended Madewell. I began to do some digging.
I first looked online and saw that most of their styles were high waisted and they not only had skinny ones, but flared ones too. People also gave them raving reviews – I was sold! Well without trying them… This past weekend I went to the mall determined to try on a pair of Madewell jeans. I made my way over to Nordstrom and pretty much tried every style they had. Normally I wear a 27/28 but the sales lady told me to size down because they run big and stretch a lot when you wear them. I took a couple of 26s and 27s and made my way to the fitting room.
I first tried on a black skinny high waisted pair with fringe on the bottom. I really liked them, but I thought they were a little big and the sales lady never came back to ask for another size, so I moved on. Also I was like there is no way a 25 is going to fit me! I then tried on a few more pairs and I wasn’t in love with any of them. I left Nordstrom disappointed, but determined not to give up!
Luckily at the mall there is a Madewell store. I made my way over there to give it a second go. They definitely had a bunch more options to choose from and even a sales rack with an extra 30% off. You know me and sales! I ended up with about ten pairs of jeans to try on in my room. I did grab some 25s to try – just to see as well. The sales girl there told me they definitely run big and you have to size down one or two sizes.
So I started trying on my jeans and fell in love! The high waist just holds you in and looks so flattering – it was exactly what I had been looking for. I even grabbed the same black jean I tried on at Nordstrom, but this time in a petite. MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE! There were some styles that didn’t work for me, but overall I found my new jean brand! I ended up buying the black jeans and a high waisted flare jean that was on sale. Also it is always good buying jeans when the size is smaller than any other ones you have in your closet ha! I swear companies do that on purpose now. Both jeans I ended up getting 25s in. Definitely proceeded to wear them all weekend and became more obsessed as time went on.
Anyone else have a favorite jean brand or have you tried Madewell jeans yet? I would HIGHLY recommend them!
