Duchess Denim


So I realize that Wednesdays on this blog are quickly turning into a "How to Dress Like the Duchess of Perfection for Less" tutorial.  And I am totally OK with that.  If you, sweet readers, are anything like me, you probably gobble this stuff up.

I popped into our local mall this weekend {a.k.a. the most depressing place in the world} and went into a New York & Company and an American Eagle.  I couldn't tell you the last time I went in either one of those places, but I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of colored denim and I'll look anywhere.
 And there they were.  An almost identical pair of coral Duchess jeans for less than $50! They're NOT jeggings, so they do not fit super tight.  This is a positive in my book. 
 
NY & Co. also had some great colored denim, albeit more pastel pink than coral.  Still very pretty and less than $60.  They're almost sold out online, but my local store had a great size run in stock.

I've been really struggling with the colored denim trend. I love the look, but the pairs I love that fit well are not in my price range.  And the ones that are in my price range, thus far, have been terribly ill fitting.  If you've had similar issues, I would definitely look into these local mall options. I had great success!

Good to know. I am not a mall person at all so I would never have know that:) They are fun and a great way to add a pop of color.

I think what makes me obsessed with those coral jeans are the amazing skinny legs in them (aka the Duchess) Anyway, I was in Ann Taylor the other day and picked up a pair of the coral jeans they had and I love them! I just wish the blue and yellow colors they have were more royal and yellow and not the colors they are. I'll have to check out my local mall this weekend though, NY&Co. here I come!

I bought a pair of coral jean 7 yrs ago just before I went over to London (just by pure chance) to see my brother and his family. I do not of course look like Kate by any stretch of the imagination. But I do enjoy the pop of color that they are.

I'm terrified of this trend but also dying to try it.. May have to check out our AE soon.

Hurrah - wearing my Duchess inspired coral jeans (Gap) right now, and I love the ones you found as well.

This is also my vote for your doing a regular Shinylocks feature - great idea!

After seeing this picture a few weeks ago, I had to have some coral jeans! I found some at Old Navy for a great price and love them!
