Denim Style: See Jane

Last week I had a moment looking at my computer screen when I literally said out loud to my office, “Wait, how have I never seen this before?” I was browsing See Jane, wide-eyed and bewildered. She has wildly similar taste to my own, posts delicious recipes, DIY projects and inspiring looks – not to mention she had guest posts from some of my other favorite bloggers; bloggers I know! Oh, and not to mention she has a denim wardrobe even I am jealous of. I immediately pinned Anna Jane down for an interview to dish about denim, and our mutual love for the J Brand 912 pencil jean.

What’s your denim philosophy?

I’m not sure if this is a philosophy or not, but I know I’ll be wearing denim for the rest of my life – it’s ageless.

What do you wear with your denim?

My denim-wearing knows no bounds; I dress it up, down, wear it on the bottom (jeans/shorts, obviously) and the top (jean jacket or denim shirt).  For example, today, I’m wearing skinny jeans tucked into rain boots with a mustard sweater and a fur vest.

What are your favorite denim brands?

I’m a J Brand loyalist; it’s just the brand that fits my body the best.  Although, I also enjoy Citizens of Humanity and BDG (Urban Outfitters).

Do you have a very favorite pair of jeans?

I do and it’s my J Brand 912 skinny jeans.  I’ve had them for about 4 years now (although I got hooked on the brand in college) and they’ve never failed me.  I always pull them out when I “have nothing to wear.”

Tell us a little about the jeans you wear the most often?

Although I have a favorite pair, I don’t necessarily wear them more than others.  To keep things fresh, I like to rotate my different colored skinny jeans (many shades of blue with a couple colors now) with wide-leg and my recent acquisition of flares.

What’s on your denim wishlist?

More colored denim.  I have red and brown but would definitely like more colors.  I also wouldn’t mind that Current/Elliot leopard pair!

Do you remember the first pair of jeans you ever owned?

Wow, that’s a great question but I can’t say that I do because I know I wore them a lot growing up (particularly colored jeans–one of my favorite pairs was red).  I do have a memory of the first pair of jeans I “had to have” and it was in 6th grade and it was a pair of boot-cut jeans (when flares/boot-cut was starting to make a comeback in the late 90s) from NY & Company.  I wore those things into the ground!
