So if you remember, last year I did a post with Nordstrom on designer jeans. I tried on a ton from Paige, Hudson, Seven for all Mankind, Joe’s, and the list goes on.
These AG skinny ankle jeans were a clear winner for me last year, AND THEY ARE STILL A WINNER TODAY! In fact, SPOILER ALERT, you are going to see them on Wednesday’s SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MUST HAVE post as well. That’s how much I love and adore these jeans. So when Nordstrom reached out last month to see if I would talk about jeans (which I pretty much do every day anyway!), I talked about THESE (what I consider the best white jeans ever) in Part 1……and THESE are getting highlighted in today’s post (Part 2).
You can find my exact pair HERE, but all of the AG skinny jeans are HERE (with lots of different washes and varying levels of distressing). They are definitely pricey, and believe you me, I might have had a heart palpitation or two when I bought them…..but now I believe in the power of a designer jean. I’m not a jeans snob at all….I still love and constantly wear my Vigoss all the time, and I’m LOVING my new STS flares…. but THESE AG’s are the bomb.
Here’s a simple, but fun look I put together with them for the post!
white top (True to size, I’m wearing a small.)/ earrings / ray-bans / necklace / ag skinny ankle jeans (True to size, I’m wearing a 27.)/ cork wedges (size up a 1/2 size) / clutch from last year, but a fun bright one can be found HERE and a multi-color one HERE / watch / similar bangles
I’m usually pretty casual with my jeans, but I decided to dress them up to show how they would be fun for a party! I mean, somebody hand me a margarita or something! And turn on some tunes! 😉 #iceicebabyalwaysmakemedance #purelyfyi
As you can see, I’m ready to kick up my heels. 😉 I’ve had a lot of questions about THESE WEDGES, and yes… they really are comfy. I’ve heard some reports that they don’t work for people who have wide feet, but I haven’t had any other complaints about them! Lots of readers have and love them! Remember, I recommend sizing up a 1/2 size!

Here’s a close up of the jeans. They have stretch in them and are soft, but the stretch isn’t so much that they don’t hold their shape all day long. Because they totally do. And please notice how they are the perfect length on me to wear with converse, flats, and ankle booties. They’re great to wear with tall boots too, because they are so fitted that you won’t get that annoying bagging at the knees. I’m almost 5’4″, but I have a friend that bought them who is a little over 5’7″, and she loves them as well!
And here’s one of the best things about them: I’ve seriously worn them as many as 5 times between washings, and they still look great on that 5th wear! But when I do finally wash them, they wash beautifully! I typically dry them for like 20 minutes, and then I hang them to dry the rest of the way. Lots of reviewer say they dry them the entire way with great luck….I’m just not that brave. Also, I feel like the distressing has held up really well and hasn’t grown or ripped further. I love my Vigoss, but I will say that the distressing has definitely grown.
And the inside shots for those that prefer them! As you can see, the top is much nicer than a regular ol’ t-shirt. And it comes in black and a red/orange too. And I should have taken a shot from the back, because it buttons all the way from top to bottom! So cute!
And here’s another time I took some shots of all angles of the jeans. I might have pulled a muscle or 2 in my neck when getting the hiney shot, but I felt it was necessary. I really like the pocket placement and design, and I wanted y’all to see them on a non-model hiney. 😉 I know it’s easy to experience some serious sticker shock when looking at the price tag on designer jeans, but you really might want to consider giving them a chance. Because I’m telling you, you will feel like a million bucks, and you will reach for them again and again.
And just because, here’s a shot of the outfit I ran to the mall in last week: the jeans with my navy MUST HAVE shirt! I thought the combo of the navy, pink, and leopard was so fun!

Here are some other AG jeans. Just click on whatever strikes your fancy! Thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
Oh wait, before you go, a SALE COLLAGE! Well, the bag isn’t on sale, but it’s ONLY $38…so just pretend that it is. 🙂 Fingers crossed that everything is still on sale!
Have a great Monday, and I’ll see you back here on Wednesday for SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MUST HAVE!
