New wish list item, for sure. Once I layed my eyes on these, I wished it were my hands that were receiving the treatment instead…look how beautiful these Siwy Hannah Jeans in Surf City are! Siwy is one of those brands that sells out QUICK. It’s been fairly hit or miss to me…every pair seems to fit looser in the hips and waist than they do in the legs, but a friend handed me a pair of her old Siwy Hannahs in a size 27 and the fit was actually more evened out (albeit large, since I’m a 26). I dunno, there’s been something about this brand that’s kept me hooked, waiting to get my hands on that perfect pair that I know is out there somewhere. These beauties are unfortunately almost sold out…(again, Siwy‘s popularity is ridiculous) but I’m keeping my fingers crossed! I could see wearing these with a flowy black top, or oooohhh even my black leather jacket, since I cannot stand bright colors if they aren’t balanced out with something dark and edgy. Bright on bright…ew. Too bubblegum for me.
On the topic of distressed jeans of color, I got to thinking of how rarely good pairs pop up. I see colored jeans all the time, and distressed jeans all the time, but seeing a pair pop up with both attributes seems few and far between. I was turned on to the idea a few years ago when I almost bought a beautiful torn up red pair of the Citizens of Humanity Avedon jeans from Shopbop…and they were on SALE. But alas, I let them go, and to this day sort of regret it. I’ve been perusing eBay since. So, I did a quick little search for torn up, worn out colored jeans, and found a few winners. Enjoy, if that’s your thing!
