Stripes, primarily black and white, are one of today’s hottest trends. No doubt pants are the boldest way to wear them and 7 For All Mankind with their Cropped Slim Cigarette in Black And White Gloss Stripe offers us the perfect pair. While I did not buy them for this purpose, these pants wound up becoming my main pair of jeans on a recent trip I took the Las Vegas.
Some friends and I decided to make a last minute trip to Las Vegas for the weekend a few weeks ago. It was basically a chance for us to cut loose and have a good time because life has really gotten in the way of us spending quality “girl time” together. Fortunately, we have a guy friend who works in the casino industry in Vegas and he was able to hook us up with a sweet suite at the Bellagio. We even had a killer view of the Bellagio fountains from out room.
I enjoy wearing these jeans so much! With their bold and super sleek look they are almost an outfit all by themselves! Their fun and quirky mod feel conveys tons of attitude and adds visual interest to any ensemble. The glossy coating keeps the look very updated and modern and the fairly thick vertical stripes are extremely flattering and instantly “shave off” an inch or two from your frame.
Another great thing about these jeans are that they are made of a light-weight 8.7 oz. denim with the ever-so-familiar 98% cotton/2% spandex blend. Although the fabric is coated it is still very stretchy and has great recovery. The overall softness and elasticity of these jeans makes them incredibly comfortable and so nice to wear. These were perfect for the Vegas heat. I realized that Vegas was in the desert but serious folks, I had no idea we were going to be dealing with 115 degree temps during the day, and that’s in the shade.
I was told by everyone prior to leaving “don’t overspend in Vegas” but sometime that is very difficult. You have the casinos, the clubs, and oh so much shopping in Las Vegas. My friends and I hit a ton of shops at the Cosmopolitan and even checked out the 7FAM store at the Palazzo.
I was super excited about the 7 For All Mankind Cropped Slim Cigarette in Black And White Gloss Stripe since the first time I saw them on the 7 FAM web-site and they exceeded all of my expectations! I love them so much I am going to wear them this weekend when I head off to Las Vegas for some fun. I must make sure to remember what my Dad always told me and “don’t overspend in Vegas!”
Las Vegas was a blast and my friends and I had a great weekend. One of my friends even had a “what happens in Vegas” moment that we are sure to tease her about for years to come. I so have to go back to Vegas again soon. Maybe this time we will stay a week. I just need to make some room on my credit card first.
