DL1961 angel skinny jeans & Vince sweater tunic

Sweater: Vince (also wore here with the front tucked in )
Booties: Chie Mihara (similar here)
Belt: JCrew 
Bag: Celine
Thank you all for the suggestions provided in the previous post. I love hearing from you, which definitely helps me shop smartly! I will keep posting deal information and product reviews in this blog. 


Recently, I heard many good words of DL1961 jeans from my girlfriends and started to pay attention to them. Last week, my trusted SA happened to bring me couple pairs of DL1961 jeans when I tried some tops there. After I tried them, it was hard for me to pull them off! They are definitely good for these cold winter days, thick and tight! When I tried different colors, even the same style, I noticed the inconsistence of size. For this particular color (DL1961 angel jeans in OPAL), I wear sz 24 (rather than my normal sz 25). It is thick, but still soft and comfy to touch. Unlike some skinny jeans, you won’t feel snaggy regardless the super stretchy of the fabric. Borrow from NM website: DL1961 Premium Denim is crafted of revolutionary Xfit Lycra®, revolutionary denim that moves 360° like a performance fabric—eliminating sag, bag, and loss of shape, while maintaining the integrity and structure of the style, even after repeated wears.’

    Please be aware that there is a half inch slit at the legging opening. These slits could make the alteration not that easy. Though they are supposed to be ankle length, the 29 ” inseam still might be longer for some girls. – Thank you Amanda for pointing out this issue.
    Time flies, our one year lease of this current apartment will end in March. Though we are not fully recovered from the pain of selling our previous house, we are doing house hunting now. We are still debating between a pre-owned house and a new construction. My expectation for this house is a spacious kitchen and a walk-in closet with a window. Fingers crossed! Compared to clothes shopping, house shopping is more stressful… This morning, we went to 3 open houses. I even did not notice that the color of my belt was too bright for my whole outfit… my fault 🙂

    Thank you for your reading!

      I feel it might be better to wear a tan colored one? Actually it was not that bright in the mirror…

      Hi, could you please give a review on the heels? Are they true to size? How high are the heels? Are they comfortable? I've never tried this brand. The price seems to be pretty low for a NM brand. Thanks a lot!

      I like DL 1961 jeans a lot. But I would like to get a brief product review on the pink heels.
