Collection B faux leather jacket, $55 (similar); necklace via sample sale, $5; secondhand JCPenney shirt via yard sale, $1 (similar); Levi's modern demi curve skinny jeans, $70; We Love Colors socksFranco Sarto wedge booties, $32 (similar)

And my black streak continues! I loved wearing this. Can you tell from the pictures? I think it's my NEW BLACK JEANS. Ahh!!!!! I finally retired my J Brands in my shop (Thanks, Lauren!) and bought a new pair of black skinnies.

I recently heard about Levi's new Curve ID jeans and had to try them out. I have small hips, a huge butt, and short legs so it's hard to find anything that fits me perfectly. I end up using the Instant Button on all my pants. So I was intrigued by these diverse curvylicious jeans. I went to a Levi's store and tried on a million pairs in various curve jeans because I didn't know which one I was. After an hour of frustration, I finally had someone measure me. Why I didn't do that before is a mystery even to me. Well, I found out I'm a Demi Curve! ..and my butt looks marvelous.

Verdict
  • The jeans aren't as skinny as I had wanted so I skinnied them myself.
  • The quality is no where near J Brands.
  • This pair fits me a lot better. My thighs are happy. My waist doesn't gape in the back.
  • My wallet thanks me.
So it's a lose-lose-win^2-win, which is still a win to me.


Have any of you tried out the Curve jeans? Which curve are you?

  4. They look great on you! and so jealous of your booty. My pants always slide down because I have nothing to hold them up. SEXAY. Anyway, love the all black with purple socks look. :)

  5. I love Levi's Curve ID jeans. I got a pair last year, and they fit me better than any other pair of jeans I've purchased, including my Sevens. I too am a demi curve, but not because I have a butt. It's because of my child-birthing hips (I hope my future babies will just slip right through).

    Love the ensemble! I am on a mission to find jeans as we speak due to my curvy body. Maybe I should try Levi's!

  17. T.J. Maxx sometimes has Levi's and I keep hoping to find some Curve ID ones there so I can try them. I have the same gaping waistband issue so maybe they'll work for me too.

  19. Thank you so much for offering up those J Brands for sale! I have been looking for a pair of black jeans for months and months and wasn't finding anything that a) fit and b) fit my very low price point. Your jeans are beyond perfec; they fit like a dream and the price was great!

    ps, LOVE this outfit. Now that I have black jeans, I can officially copy it. :)

  23. I've heard of the 'curve-ID' jeans but I haven't tried any of them yet (but their website tells me I am the 'supreme curve'). I like knowing your opinion, after reading this I would totally give them a shot.

  26. I love the pop of purple socks, and your hair looks really fantastic!
    Mmm, I've been meaning to try the levi curve jeans, I have a huge butt and a little waist, so I almost always have to alter my jeans...

  27. Oh geez, that jacket! So pretty! I've wanted to invest myself in a leather jacket [preferably faux] for a while now, and I might have to buy that exact one... I haven't personally tried to the Curvylicious line, but I've heard good things from some of my more voluptuous friends! So glad you were pleased!

  28. These look great on you. There are few things better than finding a pair of great fitting jeans. I personally am a Gap jean lover. Always Skinny works for me every time :).
