Paige Adams-Geller was a denim fit model prior to launching her own jean line in 2004. It makes sense when you slip into a pair of her jeans. This is my second go at reviewing a pair of Paige Jeans. This time I’m trying out the Skyline Drive Rebel Without A Cause Jean (I loved the Verdugo Leggings) and for those in the world who believe a pair of jeans is just that… I beg to differ. Denim fuels our economy and reflects who we are like no other garment. I really loved the way Isabel Lucas dressed Paige’s Skyline Jeans and took some inspiration when getting dressed for this review.
Although I usually tend to not like most washes on jeans, I found that I quite liked the way these had a worn look on the thighs once I put them on. They are skin tight from the thigh all the way down yet incredibly comfortable in the waist and hips and run true to size. These are peg leg jeans with a side zipper which is perfect for heels although I chose to go with buckle boots. This pair is a traditional denim without a lot of spandex in it (98% cotton 2% spandex) There is the most adorable floral trim on the inside waistband and pockets. I’ve come to learn that the Skyline is a staple in the Paige line and I understand why. The cut is one that most body shapes could comfortably wear and look great in. Classic in look as well as cut, this jean could be in your wardrobe for years and never look dated.
A huge nod to Paige Denim also as I was looking for the fabric content I noticed “Made in USA” on the tag. By not exporting her production, Paige is keeping business in the US and generally lessening her profit margin while maintaining the brand quality. In these tough economic times many brands are boosting their profits by manufacturing in other countries and I can’t say that I blame them. I think it’s important to acknowledge those who keep production in the States.
Me, I’m on the countdown to the end of the school year. Wearing a military shirt pretty much describes the battle to keep it all together as school winds down, if I look tired in these pictures here’s why… Honors English had us deep into The Great Gatsby (finished and LOVED) and Grapes of Wrath (pretty much an agonizing read) along with a few essays thrown in, my latest is on the debate over teaching evolution vs intelligent design in science classes. I have to finish a short for my film class, take a round of standardized tests and have finals on the horizon. This will be the end of my sophomore year and I really can’t wait for summer – which won’t be spent laying around I have one of those Mom’s that will make sure I’m learning and growing and interning while others are sleeping till noon… and I love her for that.
Paige Skyline Drive Jeans in Rebel Without A Cause are available here in many washes for $189.00
