Fall Wish-list Item # 2: Colored Denim

Pin It
Another item on my Fall wishlist is a pair of bold colored jeans. Since colored jeans are often bold and bright, it is really important to tone it down on top with neutral colors.

I really like the fit of these jeans. They were from Married to the mob. If you haven’t heard of this brand, that’s OK because me either =) This is one of the brands Karmaloop.com carries. I found these jeans via PLNDR.com (Karmaloop’s outlet site). They were marked down quite a bit from the original price of $150. I also had some credit left on the account so I ended up getting this pair for free. For $4.95 shipping, I was willing to give it a try. I ended up liking them very much. The fit is great for me. I don't mind if my jeans are a little long in length. I personally like it that way and have always cuffed my jeans at least one roll.  Last week, PLNDR.com had lots of great items from BB Dakota and Free People. For the most part, their stuff looks really tacky.

What I am wearing:
Sweater: AE Dolman Cable Sweater - size XS (buy here)
Denim: MTTM The Lick It Jean via PLNDR - size 25 (buy similar here - available in 00)
Booties: Banana Republic (buy similar here or here)
Sunnies: Ann Taylor (buy similar here or here)
Watch: Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold (buy here)

As the weather gets cooler, I crave for oversized comfy sweaters. I spotted this American Eagle dolman cable sweater a few weeks ago in store in 12 different colors. It was hard to decide which color to get. At the end, I decided to go with a neutral grey. Surprise! =) I like the fact that it has a baggy wide boat neck. It’s easier to achieve an off-shoulder look. I really enjoy the cooler weather lately and look forward to Fall season.

Below are some of my picks from PLNDR's sale this week (from left to right:)
1. The Helter blouse in cream - 63% off (full price here)
2. The Jenna dress - 57% off  (more details here)
3. BB Dakota Lexie Lace skirt - 50% off (still available in size 0)

Have a great week!

I often wondered how to make it work in a pair of colored denim and ankle boots seeing I'm so short. I love how you put them all together. Seeing that you're equally petite, I guess if you can rock it, I should give them a go!

Really Petite

Oooo sexy off the shoulder! You are getting really good at self-photography! And I like the sassy first photo with sunglasses!!! Great jeans- fit is great!


Love the red jeans on you and the slouchy sweater. Very fall appropriate!

The Girlie Blog

Oh man! You just look better and better. I need to pick up pants, booties and sweater like that.


I am loving colored jeans lately but can not afford branded ones, however I found one at TJMaxx for $16 and it's not too bad either. But i still don't know how to wear it and what to pair it with...I guess neutral colors are the safest to go with it!

Love the red pants on you and ravishing in that cool shades and off shoulder sweater!


oo la la i love these new photos of you! and with that hair..so sassy ;)
I do need to find a pair of colored jeans but im not sure if i can rawk it though :D

I'm actually really loving that sweater Sydney! I love that it's slouchy too - I don't like tight sweaters they make feel claustrophobic!

The Little Dust Princess

LOL PLNDR's stuff just looks tacky because people with styles like yours & mine aren't really the target audience. :P Once in a while though, they do have good sales.


I really like this look on you! Great post!


Wow, you're totally rockin' it in that first photo! Love the pose with the shades. You should do that more often. :) Colored jeans have been on my list too, and I finally got a red and a blue pair from AE (Jean's recommendation). Love it with gray.


love the pants! i want red pants too but somehow need more courage to wear one! it has always been blue jeans for me until now. guess its time to branch out :)


Flawless look. You have great style. Love the color of these jeans.

Ooh, I love the pants! I really want to try colored denim, but I'm not sure what color would look best. I also really like the sweater--off the shoulder pieces are my go-to!


You look hot lady! I love the jeans, and the sweater is perfect with them!


Sydney-- that sweater looks so cozy but sexy at the same time. i love the off-the-shoulder look on you! the pants look like they fit nice. i'd love to see what it looks like unrolled at it's full length.

I wasn't a huge fan of coloured jeans when they first hit the market, but they grew on me! I purchased a hot pink pair for Fall and am looking for a red pair as well. Very nicely done and I like that sweater, I have a love hate relationship when stores offer 1 item in a wide assortment of colours, I love them all and always want the white and the black, lol!


Sydney, could you look more badass in the first pic?! You are rocking this look, girl! I'll have to live vicariously through you when it comes to colored jeans; I'm just not adventurous enough!


@Ping Ping, they are pretty long unrolled. The length measures 38 inches =)

i love the Helter blouse.... Cute outfit of you :)

cute & little


I am looking for a pair of colored pants. I can't seem to find the perfect pair just yet, though. I love these shoes, and off-the-shoulder tops are my favorite!

The red jeans are gorgeous on you! Love the sweater too.


love the looks! enjoyed reading your blog and following!

love, silvia



I love your red jeans! They are such a fun update from regular blue jeans and look great with the cozy grey sweater:)


I love the bold colored jeans! The fit is so slim too! They look great, but $150 is still a bit pricey for me. That's awesome how you got it for practically nothing though! I love how you paired this with the grey sweater and boots!
