Dark Mended Blues Jegging - c/o American Eagle
Willow & Clay Blouse - Ross
Heels - Steve Madden

I received an American Eagle gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue Community.  
All opinions expressed are my own. Especially my love for denim.

For the past few months I have been looking for the perfect pair of jeans. I already have tons of dark jeans and few with a lighter wash, but none that were super distressed. In my opinion, distressed denim is a closet staple. Some outfits just need that extra edge to complete them!
I wanted them to have lots of distressing (not just rips in the knees), I wanted them to be tight instead of the traditional boyfriend fit, and I wanted a nice dark wash. I tried so many different brands and they were either too thick and boxy or just not the perfect fit. I was beginning to loose hope until I discovered the Denim Guide from American Eagle. I don’t normally buy jeans online, but I was able to see the actual jeans on models and there were so many different sizes and measurements that it was hard to get it wrong! American Eagle now carries 
22 fits, 84 washes, and 88 sizes for their jeans, so I was able to order the jeans in confidence and knew that if the jeans didn’t fit, I could just return them in person! This made the process so much easier! Once I ordered the jeans I seriously couldn’t wait to see them in person. The shipping was free and fast, so I didn’t have to wait long. 
The hardest part of the whole process was deciding which jeans to buy. I mean, there were SO many to choose from- hi-rise, skinny, jegging, or a flared Artist fit. All the washes were totally different and there were so many fits and cuts to choose from. After shuffling through so many options, I decided on the jegging in Dark Mended Blues. American Eagle boasts that this is their “sexiest, skinniest fit” and that it looks like a jean but feels like a legging. I’ll admit that I was a little skeptical at first, mainly because the word jegging freaks me out. I imagine that fake denim look that’s nothing like a real pair of jeans. But they were nothing like that! They are the comfiest pair of jeans I own. They fit like a glove and they’re such an amazing dark wash, with tons of rips and distressing. But the real best part- the affordable price! These jeans were only $29.99! So head over to American Eagle and check out their new Denim Experience. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!  

I wanted to add a little feminine touch to the jeans, so I added an embellished peplum blouse and some killer studded heels. I can’t wait to style these jeans with so many different items I have in my closet. 


  1. This top is so pretty with the opened back and the glitzy details! The jeans fit you like a glove and those shoes were the perfect choice for this look! Super pretty!
