Say Hello to Fabulous Fitting Jeans with SkinnyJeans! {Review & Giveaway}

Jeans are an essential item for me. Since becoming a stay at home mom, I basically live in them. And with that being said, I need jeans that meet a few different requirements.  First, they must look good (come on, that’s first on any woman’s list).  Second, they must be super comfy.  Third, they must be able to be dressed up or down.  And finally, they must be long enough (have I mentioned that I’m 5’10″?).  And I have found everyone of those things and more in SkinnyJeans®. But now SkinnyJeans® are about more than just great looking blue jeans.  They are about great looking jeans in any color that still have that fabulous fit!  In fact, the new Team Colors® line from SkinnyJeans® ensures that you have the perfect fit AND color to cheer for your favorite team.  Just this past weekend as the world watched the Super Bowl, I watched the fashions and I’d put money on the fact that I saw more than a few pairs of red, gold and purple Team Colors® jeans out there.  So, when I had the chance to try out a pair of Team Colors® SkinnyJeans® I was super excited.  I wondered would they still be flattering.  Would they feel good.  Would they be long enough?  And all of my questions were answered the minute I put on the jeans.
First, I loved the way they felt.  They had a little stretch to them that made them super comfortable on.  Second, the gold color was fabulous!  I mean, I’ve never thought I was the kind that could rock colored jeans but these sorta changed my mind permanently.  These jeans were so different from any jeans I have worn before.  They seemed to instantly slenderize me (we all want that right) while still being so comfortable!
And since they come in an assortment of team colors, you’re sure to be able to look great cheering at any game!  I think I’m going to have to have a pair of these in J-Man’s school colors soon so that I can lead the cheering section at each of his games.  But the quality of these jeans don’t stop with the fit.  Literally every detail is fine tuned to make sure you look and feel fabulous in your SkinnyJeans®.  Even the rivets carry the SkinnyJeans® logo.
Whether you’re a sports fan or not, the Team Colors® jeans from Skinny Jeans® will make you feel like cheering every time you put them on. But, just in case you’re a little more traditional, I also got to try out the GreenJeans™.  No, they aren’t green.  However, they are awesome!  They have the same slimming qualities as all the jeans from SkinnyJeans® do but they take it up a notch higher to give you a photo shopped look.
The GreenJeans™ don’t seem to have as much stretch as the Team Colors® jeans and I think that is why they really shape you up.  But the are still just as comfortable!  Seriously ya’ll, I put these on and I couldn’t see a single bump or bulge.  It was fabulous.  I told the hubby that I was going to wear them all the time – even sleep my the – because they are that fabulous!  In my opinion these are the ultimate skinny jeans that make you look great regardless of your size.  The added shading in the front has a slimming effect and the jeans lay very flat – no bunching or gaping that is so often encountered with slim fitting jeans.
These are the kind of jeans that you put on and feel fabulous whether you’re pairing them with a tee or dressing them up for a night out on the town.  They really seem to just conform to your body perfectly and fit like they were created specifically for you. Whether you like a pop of color or a more traditional look, SkinnyJeans® has you covered.  I can honestly say that I will be a Skinny Jeans® fan for life after experiencing the difference first hand.  All the pairs of jeans that I have that are good with the exception of just one area not fitting right have been completely replaced by jeans that fit perfectly – thanks to SkinnyJeans®. And now, I want one of you to have the chance to find out what I found out – that SkinnyJeans® totally rock!  So, one lucky winner will get their choice of a pair of jeans from SkinnyJeans®.  You can choose the Team Colors® line or the GreenJeans™ line based on what is right for you.  I’ll tell ya – that would be a super hard choice for me because both of these lines look and feel fabulous every time I put them on.

Skinny Jeans Review/Giveaway at Open Hands Blog


Let's talk fashion! I LOVE IT!! Now I will not by any means call myself a "fashionista" or say that I am the most fashionable lady on the block, but for a stay at home momma of 3 I think I do fairly well. ;-) However, being that I am that stay at home momma of 3, I don't spend a lot of money on clothes for myself. I probably buy clothes for my kids 3 times more than I buy for myself, if not more!

 Since I don't buy clothes for myself too often I feel like I miss some of the latest "trends". Well one of my favorite trends right now is colored jeans! I just think they are so so fun! Unfortunately because I don't buy a lot of clothes, and since I am still trying to tone up a bit from welcoming sweet baby girl 5 months ago I haven't purchased any of these fun jeans!

 Recently I was given the chance to try out a pair of Skinny Jeans in their Team Colors. And I was very excited! Now the one thing that made me a little nervous about the jeans is they are said to "make you look thinner" , now I am a pretty thin girl, I mean I have a little baby pudge in the belly left, but as for my legs and such I have just always been slim...so I didn't really want my legs to look thinner. Nonetheless I was excited to try a pair out!

 I was sent the Team Colors jeans in Gold in a size 28. Now these jeans retail for $159! I have never in my life paid more than $50 for a pair of pants, so before they even arrived I told my hubs that these jeans would really need to be amazing for me to encourage anyone to buy them at that price point. So my jeans arrived and I was just getting ready for the day so I decided to put them on. Within 5 minutes I was telling my hubs that I REALLY REALLY wanted another pair!

  These pants are incredible!! Honestly they are my favorite pants that I have ever owned!! The only reason I haven't purchased another pair already is that my husband is considering taking a job closer to home, which is going to mean a pay cut...so I am trying to be a little more frugal, so instead of jumping in right away and buying a pair I am going to save and get some in the near future! ;-)

 Ok, so lets talk details about these pants. The gold color is really pretty, they are beautiful bright yellow!  I think they are a color that will look great year round, so I am very excited about that! The rise on these pants are incredible! The inside non-stretch pocket lining is sewn together acting as a restraining panel to flatten the stomach! Incredible!!! There are certain shirts I avoid wearing right now, until I get back into shape...but with these pants that problem doesn't exist! Love that!!

 These pants are great on length! I am 5'7 , so not TALL, but not short. I sometimes have a problem finding pants that are a good length, but these pants are actually long on me, the first time I wore them was with flats and I actually had to roll them up a little bit. So my only thought was with a shorter girl I don't know how well these would fit, so I did ask the company about that. She said that they get that same comment a lot, so they have been thinking about making the next round of their Team Colors a little shorter. However their other jeans do come in different inseams :)

 I wore these pants out a couple of times now and I always get told how nice they are! My hubs was even impressed with them, when we looked on the website he thought they would make me look to thin as well (remember I mentioned that little fear earlier). However, they don't, they fit wonderfully and I love the look of them and so does the hubs. ;-)

 You can purchase these Team Color jeans in some fabulous colors!! I love the light green and bright red too!! They look so fun! One of you will win a pair of the Gold Team Color jeans for yourself! Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway will remain open until Monday Feb. 25th, Good Luck!!
