I spent six glorious days in Miami last week, and one of the best things that happened was that I discovered that AG jeans finally got cool. They hired a new design team, and the difference is truly astounding. One of my besties wanted to make a drive-by to pick up a pair of jeans, and I wasn't expecting to find anything eye-catching. But boy was I wrong!
Neon, snakeprint, and tie-dye were just a few of the highlights. I tried on The Stilt in Tie Dye Ice Blue, and The Leggings Ankle in Snake Ice Blue, Snake Citron and Snake Pink. The fabrics were so lustrous. And they immediately reminded me of The Lisa Bra from The Keep 'em In Collection (blue tie dye with clear Swarovski crystals) and The Cher Bra from The Zip 'em Up Collection (silver and pink snakeprint with jet black Swarovski crystals).
Sherry ended up getting the blue tie-dye and the yellow snake. I splurged on the blue snake. The soft twill felt so amazing. I wore them the same night with The Lauren Bra from The Zip 'em Up Collection and this sick pair of gold Chanel high-tops. The fit was perfect.
So, a couple days later, my friend Nicole and I excitedly rushed over there the night before our triathlon. I love, love, love styling her because she is tall and thin, so clothing hits her in all the right places. (I refer to myself as her pro bono stylist). Well, I was right. She struck gold. She ended up getting the yellow snake and a solid neon pair. She also got this really cool denim one-piece get-up that you can only wear if you are over "5," 7. I ended up getting the pink snake print pair as well, ripped the tag off, threw them on, and we made a mad dash to dinner.
Now, the three of us proudly own AG's snakeprint legging ankle jeans, and all of you should too. Price: $178. (Buying tip: Always choose quality over quantity).
