jeans, jeans and more jeans - want a new pair?

Thursday, July 22, 2010
Who feels like winning a new pair of jeans!

If you've read this blog for awhile, you will know that I was fashion fairy godmother to my friends last year when I threw a jean party courtesy of Gap and their new line of jeans, Born To Fit.

You can't go anywhere without seeing these jeans. On billboards, on behinds, in last month's Lucky with a sweet new preview of what's to come. Lots. More. Jeans. In. Way. Too. Many. Washes. Than. I. Can't. Afford.

To me, jeans are staple in my wardrobe. Always have been. I need (yes, I do) to have several different styles of jeans. I need the dressy jeans - the ones perfectly molded to my body that I can wear with heels and a fitted t-shirt or dress up with another sexy tank. I have pairs that only go with certain shoes because they are longer or shorter than I'd like them to be. Then I have the skinny pairs too, you know, the trend I swore I could never get my calves into - but, I actually can. I need the perfect boyfriend pair, but I digress.

For no other reason then they knew I needed a new jean jacket, I was sent this last week and have worn it three times already to work (with different outfits of course).

It reminds me of the 80s - who knew acid wash denim could come back and still work?

While I'm not giving away the jacket (you can buy it here on sale!), I am giving away a coupon for a free pair of jeans - men or women can win. I don't want you to do a whole lot of work to win these. Winning should be easy, right?

Contest open to men and women: Tell me which pair of jeans you would buy if you won and where you would wear them. The straight in dark wash for a night out, or the always skinny or cropped in bleached wash to a bar for day drinking with friends. Leave your email address in the comment if I can't find it linked from your blog. Enter as many times as you want and another entry is awarded if you tweet:

"I just entered Allison's contest to win a kick a** pair of #gapborntofit jeans for this summer #giveaways" and link to this post. That's it.

Contest ends Thursday, June 29.

FTC listen up: No monetary compensation was accepted for this post. I was given both the jean jacket and the coupon and giving it away freely in my own contest for my faithful readers.

I absolutely love the Gap 1969 line! I have one pair already even though they're kinda pricey :) So, I'd buy another pair in a lighter shade for summer.

Awesome giveaway, girl!

Lil' Woman said...

I would def go for the dark ones...it'll be fall soon enough and I need some more dark jeans!

Cleshopaholic said...

Jegging!!! I'm obsessed with them. I have the black and I want the dark wash!! Love love love!!!

Suzanne said...

I would pick the Long and Lean in the dark wash---these are the perfect Saturday night movie, dinner with friends jeans where comfort is key.

stealthnerd said...

I would get the always skinny (petite though, since I'm a shorty haha!) in the dark wash. I have the medium wash and I'm IN LOVE. They are the comfiest jeans I've ever owned and I need the dark wash for a more winter appropriate look.

I would buy the Perfect boot jeans (light wash)

I'd love the Perfect Boot cut in the faded dark wash. Perfect with heels and a night out on the town with my hubby!

The Modern Gal said...

The Real Straight are my favorite cut -- I wear mine every single day. I might get a medium wash since I already have the dark wash.

Alana said...

What pair of jeans wouldn't I wear from the Gap would be a better question to ask me. I seriously own at least 10 pairs of Gap jeans. They always fit me better than any other brand!

I love gap's long and lean, in the dark wash. They are super comfy and the 'short' fit perfectly with heels. I (having larger calves as well) tried a pair of the real straight, and I do like them! I love gap jeans.

i dont like the gap. ever since madonna and missy did that gap jeans video in those badass jeans bedazzled with "M"'s and they told me they were not available for sale. I decided they suck.

I happen to heart madonna and it crushed my dreams.

so if it were possible id have those jeans, and id wear them pretty much EVERYWHERE!

AutumH said...

I would have to get the Always skinny jeans (medium wash). I've always loved the look of skinny jeans with tunic tops and it's something I could wear running around with my kids or just relaxing in at home.

I'd rock the jeggings in the faded dark wash to happy hour with a cute top and heels. Great giveaway, and love your blog!

Jessica (Bayjb) said...

Okay we need to talk about what you're wearing this with because i have zero idea. Like none. HELP!

Maureen said...

I'm just like you, I will never have enough pairs of jeans. I would probably go with dark wash skinny jeans. I wear my F21 skinny jeans a few times a week so I could use a new pair. :)

Maureen said...

after reading through the comments, I might be tempted to try some jeggings if I could work up the nerve to even try them on.

Kim said...

I'm obsessed with the jeggings.

Melissa said...

I don't know if I have the courage to try the jeggings, but I'm interested in the real straight jeans in the dark wash. They look like they could be fun for a night out and also dressed up for work.

DARK WASH. I need all the help I can get to make my ass look smaller.

PS I LOLed at your note to the FTC.

Mer said...

Long and Lean in WHITE - perfect for a Labor Day BBQ!!

Amber said...

I want the dark wash jeggings for EVERYTHING!

Cindy said...

I would choose the distressed boyfriend jeans in light wash. They would be perfect for everyday wear or a casual movie date with my mister. Thank you so much for offering such a generous giveaway! :)

Phew, almost missed this (thank you Twitter!) Would love to try the dark wash pair :)

Burgh Baby said...

Dark wash straight leg jeans would be FABULOUS for adding to my every day work wardrobe selection!

Managed Chaos said...

I'd probably pick the Long & Lean in a dark wash, because I'm...well, vertically challenged ;)

I'd wear them to work and for GNO's.

Mary said...

What a wonderful give away!!!

I would pick the Limited Edition Sexy Boot Jean in Medium Tint Wash - and I would wear them every where! I've recently lost a LOT of weight and I'm at the point where I need a new pair of jeans (the belt can only help for so long!), but hesitate to buy more because I'm still losing weight! This would be sooooo helpful! :)

Real Straight - Dark Wash. Cute for anything, but you'd probably see me most often wearing them out around Cleveland, to work on Fridays, or with a GAP favorite T (or my fave flannel) lounging with friends.

I love Gap jeans! I'm a huge fan of the Always Skinny 1969 jeans. They are skinny jeans made realistically... they stretch! But I've always loved the way boyfriend jeans look when worn in... I'm on a mission to find my perfect pair. I would wear my boyfriend jeans on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, running errands or meeting a friend for coffee. Awesome giveaway! :)

Round 2: I'd get the Forever skinny jeans, saturated dark wash... and wear them in the fall with ankle boots and a super cute flowey top.

I'd get a pair of real straights in a dark wash. Momma's in need of some new (fitting) jeans since I popped the kid out. And I obvs don't want a pair of mom jeans! Girl needs to stay stylish! ;)

Susan said...

I have a totally amazeballs workplace that allows casual dress (read: JEANS) but try to be careful about getting too cas (read: light wash, destressed denim). So I'm always looking for a pair that I can dress up a bit.

I'd totally rock a pair of dark straight leg or skinnies with a cardigan and heels on an almost daily basis.

Kelly said...

I would buy the Always skinny jeans(dark wash)for date night! I love them.

Candis said...

Are Maternity Jeans included? I'm trying to stay trendy here.

Dina said...
