WIW: the R13 crossover jeans!

I've been gone from the forum recently - I've been much busier at work. Sorry to pop in just to post this.

My boyfriend got me the longed-for R13 crossover jeans! I love them. These photos aren't the best, but hopefully the look comes through. In the future I'll wear pointy-toe flats or heels, but I had to walk a lot today and these shoes won out.

1-2: Zara cropped cotton sweater, R13 jeans, falling-apart FS/NY flats.

3: Wednesday's outfit for meetings: Alice + Olivia wide-leg linen trousers, Uniqlo white tee, Helmut Lang cotton wrap cardigan, Fluevog oxfords

4: Bonus: a tiny new addition to my house!

    What Anna said!

    So glad your boyfriend got you what you really wanted.

  • Ariadne replied 10 years ago

    Your boyfriend is a keeper.

    Those jeans and both outfits are stunning.

    But your kitty is the best of all!  I want to snuzzle her (him?).  What's his/her name?

  • Jenava replied 10 years ago

    Love your looks!  You kitty is very similar to mine, only mine is full grown and quite...large...there's no other way to describe her.  And she loves to sprawl her large self out everywhere.  Enjoy your kitty!

    Really love the look of the crossover jeans on you! The style looks as though they're super comfortable as well.

    ...and the tiny new addition to your home is sooooo adorable!

  • Angie replied 10 years ago

    Your tiny new addition to the house is priceless. 

    And I can't think of anyone who should own those R13 crossover jeans more than you. Killer look on you and bless your boyfriend. 

  • AviaMariah replied 10 years ago

    Love, love, love!!!  Those are amazing and I'm sure will get a lot of love from you.  I also love the A&Os on you.  One of these days I'm going to have to continue the search for my pair.  

  • ironkurtin replied 10 years ago

    Wow.  I really, really hate those crossover jeans - all that extra fabric right on the pelvis, gahhhh - except on you.  You look great!

  • Greyscale replied 10 years ago

    The kitten's name is Rocío and she came all the way from Puerto Rico. I was planning to change her name but Rocío has stuck. She's a girl-cat - calicos are always girls, actually, because the pattern comes from random inactivation of one or the other X chromosome in different patches. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_cat

    I'm so glad you all like the jeans. I was nervous that they'd look too diaper-ish like the harem pants I've tried. But I like them a lot. I wouldn't have bought them if I didn't know a few of you (Anna, Cocolion?) owned them too - it made them seem more real, like I could actually wear them in daily life. Which I can, for sure! So thanks for the inspiration.

    And yes, my boyfriend is definitely a keeper. This was his delayed Christmas gift to me, delayed because I wanted to wait til they went on sale - he used the shopbop discount last week.

  • Debra replied 10 years ago

    You look fantastic :) I really love the little black top with the jeans and what a beautiful little kitten. She looks quite settled in :)

  • Marley replied 10 years ago

    Oh my!  Those jeans are fabulous on you!  Just perfect!  I have wanted a pair of them for soooo long - and now, seeing these, motivates me to figure out how I can wrangle with Girl Math to make them mine!
    And - your Kitty?  Precious!

  • gryffin replied 10 years ago

    So jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Love these on you!!  You look awesome in them!!  Adore your "new addition"!  Fur baby!!  So delicious!!

  • Greyscale replied 10 years ago

    Boyfriend suggested getting a sleek black kitten so the fur wouldn't show up on our all-black wardrobes! Plus it would add some goth points. But I've always had calicos so she won. She's adjusting very well. Very friendly little critter. 

  • Mellllls replied 10 years ago

    Fab!! I like the shoes you picked.

  • Aubergine replied 10 years ago

    Those really look amazing on you! Or at least they seemed to in the millisecond before I got hopelessly distracted by the kitty picture.

  • rachylou replied 10 years ago

    Dang. You look good! The crossover's are way stylin'!

    p.s. Hello to kitty boo boo. What a cutie!

  • Jaime replied 10 years ago

    Fantastic outfits. Enjoy kitty - I love the sly look in his eye!

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 10 years ago

    Serious jeans envy here! Love them on you. Very, very good choice. Seeing them on you, it's hard to imagine that you would have had any doubts, but I know the feeling. (Trying a new style, especially after being underwhelmed by similar ones, does give pause, doesn't it?) The meeting outfit looks very cool, too. And yes, the kitten steals the show! Awwwwww, cute!

  • karymk replied 10 years ago

    Oh a little Calico! She's so sweet!

    Love your weird new pants. Love that top too, since it's cropped do you have it tucked? Can't tell...

  • Greyscale replied 10 years ago

    Karymk, I have a black cami tucked in under the cropped sweater. I hate showing midriff (love it on others, can't stand it on myself).

    Marley, chuckling over the Girl Math comment. I realized I'd spend this much on a fancy dress I'd only wear a few times, so why not on one killer pair of jeans, since jeans are the center of my wardrobe? In general I need to shift my big purchases to things I'll really wear all the time for my actual life. No more fancy trousers that never get worn. (It helped that Shopbop had a 20% off code last week.)

  • Diana replied 10 years ago

    Definitely worth the wait!  Those are amazing on you.

    And kitty!!!!!  So cute!

  • Lisa replied 10 years ago

    I'm looking forward to future outfits with these, they are lovely on you.  And congrats on the new furbaby.
