($142, Rich & Skinny, Nordstrom)Guise! Despite the fact that I'm not technically skinny and CERTAINLY not rich, I absolutely LOVE Rich & Skinny jeans, which were designed by some of the former brainchildren behind Seven for All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and Joie. They're super slimming, give me extra length (which I DESPERATELY need), they're slightly stretchy without venturing into Mom territory, and really sleek and COMFORTABLE! They kind of remind me of William Rast but FAR more wearable.
I've got Rich & Skinny's Sleek Straight Leg Stretch jeans, which are not SO cheap (but they don't break the $200 mark), BUT, HIIIIIIIIIIIII you can get them for like $79 at RueLaLa RIGHT NOW! So go go GO! If you need an invite, hit me up in the comments, 'kay?
... And check out the Rich & Skinny selection at SmartBargains -- lots of high-waisted flares, if that's your thing. And, watch the fun Flash models at RichAndSkinnyJeans.com. They walk around and stuff! Hee.
