Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dressing Room Try-Ons Part 7 Jeans! I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get to the Nordstrom Vancouver store but for some reason, my kids were very keen to go. I think they were in the mood to try on Stella McCartney Metalic Platform Wedges again so they can pretend to be rockstars. Crazy kids! I’ve done a few other NSALE Denim Reviews here Rag & Bone, and here Veronica Beard, and here Frame.
These awesome jeans where a recommendation from a reader the day before the sale went live. I didn’t order them and hoped I’d get to see them in store on Sunday when I went to the Seattle store, but they weren’t in stock. The Vancouver Nordstrom had them in today but they had a super limited size run. My size down was there so I grabbed it in hopes I could get an idea of how the jeans fit. I LOVE THEM! These are not classic jeans and they are not ‘dressy’ jeans but they are amazing every day, casual wear denim. The denim is this thick, incredibly soft cottony feeling denim, with a little bit of stretch. Canada is sold out of my size nationwide, and I think I may have preferred my usual size, however, on the site, the size I chose corresponds with my size in the size guide. I also did a poll online with people that have tried it on and it seems most people size down in Mother. I just love them and I love the soft pink jersey stripes on the sides. The top two photos here are true color representations but for some reason, that last photo is very washed out. Have you tried Mother Jeans before? How do you size in them?
My usual AG Jeans are The Legging Ankle Skinny Jeans and I hadn’t had a chance to try on the Farrah yet. I didn’t think my favorites could be improved upon but man, these Farrah Skinny Jeans are even better. They are what I love about the Legging Ankle, but with a higher rise and a beautiful gradually darker blue that is very leg lengthening. I love that these have no distressing on them whatsoever, and the hems are finished off nicely. They are a bit long but not long enough that I feel the need to hem them right away. I usually like to do a few washes before I hem jeans anyways. I highly recommend the AG Farrah Ankles, especially if you are looking for a dark wash non-distressed pair of jeans. The whiskering on these may make them inappropriate for casual Fridays in a formal work environment, but they are dressy enough for going out in. These are TTS.
This is another AG style that I hadn’t tried before. I was looking for non-distressed jeans to try on today and didn’t realize these were a distressed pair. I tried them on anyways. These are pretty much the same fit as my usual AG The Legging Ankle, but they have some design details at the ankle with the raw edge and notched cut on the outside of the ankle. The distressing on this pair isn’t too much since it’s not gaping open and doesn’t seem like it will run the risk of expanding into a large hole. I really love the wash of these and the fit. They are TTS.
