All of these petite denim giveaways of late has reminded me that I really do need a good pair of denim jeans right now. It's been three to four years since I got my last favorite pairs, but I've outgrown or simply outworn almost all of those. I need to expand my collection with two or three carefully selected pairs, but I know how hard it is for me to find good denim. (Note to self: One day do a post telling readers about how you found your favorite old pairs.)
Right now I'm in desperate need of some good denim. They have to be cute enough for weekend wear but professional enough that I could take them to the office if my new job ever has a casual Friday. (Fingers crossed!) So I'm wondering - has anyone ever tried the Provocateur line from Joe's Jeans? I see that several washes from the petite line are on sale through Wednesday at Hautelook (click here if you need a referral invite) for a mere $79. This price gets me super excited, and I'm thinking about giving them a shot. The only thing is - I'm not sure how this line fits. And I hate that I can't get my money back (only store credit) if the jeans turn out to be duds. So, petite readers, has anyone else had experience with Joe's Jeans? If so, I'd love to hear about it before I take the plunge.
Here's the official description from the Hautelook website:
This silhouette has a shorter inseam and a higher knee break to elongate the leg. The measurements are scaled to perfect proportions. This fit is for a woman 5'4" or shorter. If already gifted with longer legs even though she is petite in frame - these can be her "sneaker or ballet flat jean."
- Zipper and button closure
- Three front pockets
- Two back flap pockets
- Boot cut leg
- Approx. 31" inseam, 7 5/8" rise
Fit: this style fits true to size
Model stats for sizing: Height: 5'9" Bust: 34" Waist: 24" Hips: 35" Model is wearing size 28.
(Ummm, does anyone else think it's ludicrous to have a 5'9" model wearing these petite jeans? No wonder she looks ridiculous!)
Care info: Machine wash
Fiber content: 98% cotton, 2% elastane
What should I do? Oh, decisions, decisions...
