One of the most common questions we get asked is...can you help me find jeans that will fit? Matching a gal to her denim soulmate can be a tricky task, given that most women have a strict list of preferences when looking for the perfect pair of denim jeans. Some gals LOVE a high waist, while others will ONLY wear a mid-rise. Some love a flare, a skinny, a boot cut, or a straight leg. Distressing? Can make or break whether or not a woman will love a pair of jeans! So, matching a gal in the shop to her denim counterpart is a big task, but one that our current favorite denim brand, Pistola Denim, makes a whole lot easier.
We have carried a wide range of denim over the years. From Levi's to Hidden to Pistola to Level 99 to Rollas and back again, we have sold hundreds of pairs of jeans since we opened the shop. And because of that, we have tried on A TON of various styles, fabrications and fits. While each brand has held a dear place in our heart, the one that we ALWAYS circle back to loving the most, is Pistola.
Pistola jeans are a premium denim brand that retails in the $130-150 range, which is shockingly affordable for most premium denim these days. What we love most however, is the juxtaposition of great "hold" and cozy stretchy comfort. We love the way a denim looks when it seems to hold everything in just the right place, but sometimes, to achieve that, we must sacrifice comfort in its entirety. Not the case with PIstola!!!
Their high rise, button fly Charlie jean hits it on the money for us. This true high rise jean pairs so well with crop tops for a trendier look (because of the higher rise it allows for a more covered up crop look that is both age appropriate for us and also mom friendly, so we can chase littles in a cute fit without worrying that we're baring too much mid-drift). We love that the Charlie features that super slimming and very flattering higher waist coupled with a straighter, slightly cropped leg. The Charlie features distressing details at the knee for a casual, easy California vibe, without taking it too far.
Kelly and I (the buyers and owners of our local SCV boutique, Salt and Freckles), both fell in love with this exact pair of denim and wanted to feature both of our very different bods in the same exact pair of jeans!!!
Kell is wearing a size 26 and loves the casual comfy fit. I am in a 28 (typically a 27 but sized up for a looser look) and love the way these jeans fit sooooo well against all my curves. I love wearing a crop top but HATE when my jeans cut into my sides right where the crop hits. I sized up to avoid that and have loved how casaul and effortless they look.
The somewhat cropped hem pairs perfectly with sneakers, sandals, boots or a more dressed up shoe for a night out! Endless options in a great classic pair of jeans you don't want to miss out on!!!
