I’m guest posting over at Harper’s Happenings today about my slight obsession with colored jeans and I plead the case for you to also buy 10+ pairs. It’s a strong case, I promise.

  1. You'll be happy to know I bought three pairs of colored jeans this summer, mostly because of how your posts made me realize the many different ways to wear them.

    You really pull those off well with your long legs!  I need to try some on my short legs and see if they work or not.

    I just bought another pair today! They looked tangerine in the store but now that I'm home, they're more of a pink/apricot. I still love them!

    Pretty much no one in my city is wearing colored jeans!!  It took me a long time to be brave enough to wear them but I finally did it.  I said to myself "Self, if Kendi can do it, you can do it too".  And you are right, they do make you feel happy and they do get noticed 🙂

    I've said it before and I'll say it again…no one rocks colored jeans as well as you do, Miss Kendi! I just bought a pair of mint ones…can't wait to wear my … what did you call them, crayon legs? 🙂

    Adorable… if you ever get sick of wearing clothes you should sell your wardrobe… as full… I would buy it. That's if I wasn't poor… blah.

    I wish!  I've got a small waist and a Latin bootie.  The only jeans that fit me well are Lucky and they are $$$$.  I can't find anything that works for me in color.  Please enjoy them for me!!

  21. Hey, Kendi!
    Guess what? I'm into colored jeans, too! But, as you showed here, I consider it takes a serious style sense to make them look fresh and chic among the sea of pedestrian looks. Bravo!!

    I don't own any colored denim, but you seem to be making a strong case for me to purchase at least one pair! I just did a post on my blog with a photoshoot I did in Griffith Park. Lots of vintage and fun dresses, take a look, I hope you like it!

    I'm ashamed to say that I don't own a pair. I was near tears (ok, not really) when I realized that I may have missed the boat, but looks like their making a come back in the stores for fall. I saw some at Gap- but where else can I find some? Please make some recommendations please. And what do you think of corduroy colored jeans for fall??

  49. Grab a friend who sews and see if they can take them in, or do it yourself! My sewing skills are minimal, but skinnifying jeans is wonderfully simple. Try:

  69. I love how you do colored denim. I just ordered my first pair (eggplant, i'm starting slow) and am so excited to style them. As a pearshaped gal I was always nervous about the color but you show how it can be done so tastefully. Thanks!
