How would youdescribe your personal style in one word?
That’s a hard one – I would say comfortable. I like to wear things that make me feel like me. So it’s comfortable in the way that it’s all my own.
How would youdescribe your body type in one word?
A wonderland… haha! No but really, again, I would say it’s just me. It’s been with me my whole life and it’s been through so much. I think it’s a disservice to just describe it in one word.
How often doyou wear jeans?
Every day. I can’t think of a single day I don’t wear jeans. Except for days I just stay in bed all day—don’t we all love those days once in a while?
What’s the mostcommon fit problem you have when trying on jeans?
I feel like I keep my legs pretty toned because I’m so active, but I’ve got a butt and I’ve got hips. I have a hard time finding something that fits my legs as well as it fits my hips and butt. It’s difficult to find a pair that fits all the contours of my body.
What exactly do youlook for in a perfect pair of jeans?
I’m drawn to colors, so I love a good dark wash. As far as fit, I like a tapered, more narrow leg because I feel like that flatters me the best. I also like a simple pocket. Basically, I want a pair that highlights the best of me. I really do feel proud to show off my body and I want a pair that does that.
What’s your favoriteSilver Jeans Co. fit?
The Suki Skinny is by far my favorite. I really love the way that it tapered down my leg. It gave me that perfect skinny jean look and feel, but I didn’t have to compromise the fit around my waist and hips either. It really fit where I wanted it to. The rise is really great and it shows off my butt and all the squats I’ve been doing.
What do you likeabout the fit, fabric or style and what makes it better than other jeans you’ve tried?
Gapping is a big problem for me, but these had no gapping. They just stood out as jeans that fit me really well. I have an hourglass shape—I’m smaller around the waist and then voluptuous around the middle. I could feel the cinched waist, which none of my other jeans really have.
If you could describethe way you feel in our jean with one word, what would it be?
How about three words—made for me.
Do you have any good
memories with Silver Jeans Co.?
Actually yes. When I was younger in middle school, about 15 years ago, my dad took me to Buckle to look for jeans. I was finally ready to move away from the department store mom jeans and be a little more fashion forward. I got a pair of Silver Jeans and a Silver Jeans Co. denim jacket.
It fits like a glove and I still wear it to this day. I don’t think I’ve ever had a jacket that fits me so perfectly—the shoulders, the chest, the waist. I wore it all the time and still do, and I continue to get so many compliments. Someone has literally offered to buy it off my body,
that’s how well it fits. And they assume it will look as great on them, but I like to think it was made just for me and my body. I’ve had it for 15 years and I think it’s made so well, I’ll be able to wear it for another 15.
