I've avoided American Eagle and Abercrombie for a long time. I would bet that it's been 10 years since I made my last purchase in either store. Then came Pinterest. I've been searching for a nice pair of colored skinny jeans that would be long enough for me and I haven't had any luck. They all have a 32" inseam and are over $100. I can't afford that and if I could, they are colored jeans, I'm not willing to pay that much. Then I spotted some colored jeans on Pinterest from American Eagle. I went to their site just to check out the price - not bad at $44. Then I saw the best thing a 6'0" girl could see - the X-Long button. That's right, American Eagle has X-Long skinny jeans.
These are the jeans that I bought - how cute are they!!!??? I got them in that pink color and I couldn't be happier. I'd say my style is pretty conservative and classic and these jeans are the perfect punch of color. And they are so long. I actually have them folded up an inch with my sandals. I'm looking forward to wearing some wedges with them and not worrying about them being too short!
I'm a size 8 at American Eagle, most other places (Anthropologie, etc) I'm a size 6. Make sure you look at the sizing chart. I also bought the cutest bathing suit from AE while I was on the site. It was on sale and worth a shot. LOVE IT. Makes my minimal chest look like I'm actually an adult. :)
(For sizing purposes, I got a small top and a medium bottom, if that helps anyone decide what size to order.)
Next month, I'll order the white skinny jeans. I've done too much shopping already.
