I love jeans. Any kind of jeans, you name it – skinny, cropped, boyfriend, flare, boot cut – I have them all in my closet. My first pair of ‘high-end’ jeans were bought after my first few pay checks back in 1997. They were Diesel and I got them on a fabulous, indulgent shopping trip in Harrods. For a while I was loyal to Diesel – I loved their unique cuts and soft denim. Then they started creeping up in price and when I started looking for skinny jeans I fell in love with the Hudson Collin jeans. Since then I’ve been a Hudson loyalist and I own their bell bottoms, boot cuts and skinnys. What I like about Hudson is the rear button flap pocket and the fact that they offer both low rise and mid rise jeans.
The other week, while on the hunt for a new pair of boyfriend jeans, I found myself back in the Diesel store in Atlanta. I wanted to try the Diesel Fayza jean. They are totally different from any other jean I have seen on the market – tapered, with a low crotch and a twisted seam – almost harems – but with a little more attitude. I made the mistake of trying on, and ultimately falling in love with the Jogg version of the Fayza. Diesel’s new Jogg jeans are incredible – in my eyes the ultimate in comfort and style. Jeans combined with sweats – genius. The jeans have a jersey lining – making them incredibly comfortable and easy to wear – but unfortunately also crazy expensive. The Fayza’s that I fell in love with were $330 – I just couldn’t do it – but I’ve dreamt about them every night since.
In an effort to convince myself that they are worth the price I tracked down a pair of Fayza’s on eBay – not the Jogg jeans mind you – just the regular denim. Nonetheless the cut is part of the reason I am obsessed with them, so I thought they were worth a punt. I love how unique they are – I haven’t seen anyone else wearing anything similar. I snapped them up on eBay for a steal – a brand new pair too. After wearing them once and acquiring complements from my lovely Husband, I’ve now added a pair of Jogg Fayza’s to my ‘must have’ list for AW 2013. I adore these jeans. You may think I’m crazy, I don’t care.
Unfortunately this rubbish photo hasn’t displayed them in all their low crotch glory – they’re a very dark wash and I should have used my Nikon – sorry!
Jacket – Zara (old) // Shoes – Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers (similar here) // Jeans – Diesel Fayza (bought on eBay) // T-shirt – Gap (old)
As for the rest of the week so far here’s what I have been wearing.
For a trip to Hip Hop class with Poppy yesterday – I keep hoping he’ll ask me to join the class…
Dress – Zara sporty dress (sold out online already) // Boots – Isabel Marant Dicker boots
Skort – Zara // T-shirt – Zara (old) // Scarf – H&M (old) // Bag – YSL Roady // Boots – Isabel Marant Dicker boots
Can you tell I’m ready for Fall? – My ankle boots are making a more frequent appearance again:)
I have serious leg envy once more – that Zara skirt is just fab on you. The new jeans look great on you too – I think I prefer the darker denim. Love Diesel but agree that the prices rocketed up a few years ago…such a shame. Ax
I was just looking at my legs feeling guilty as I missed spin this morning – I’ve got a cold:( It’s amazing how expensive they are – even the Husband’s Nudie jeans are cheaper…x
Love those jeans on you Joanna & even better that you got them for a steal via eBay. Finding the right fit of jeans can be so difficult & I think once you find a brand that fits you well it’s tempting to stick with them for life. As for expensive pairs if you work out the cost per wear it helps with the justification 😉 x
No surprise that I adore the jeans. I have some Zara denim harems from many years ago that I love. I will have to track down some of these Diesel beauties! Thank you! X
Love diesel jeans too Joanna, have a few pairs in my wardrobe at least 10years old and can’t bare to part with them. The ones you got look gorgeous and I love the ones your lusting after, diesel always does the most perfect blue colours, I’m so fussy with blue jeans. Loving the skort too, so jealous your still bare legged, our days of that are over! X
I’ve just seen them mentioned in Grazia. They are supposed to be super comfy – like wearing jogging pants (hence the name?). I love Diesel jeans – they have bum enhancing properties. I turned a friend on to them after she tried on a pair of mine. I used to wear a lot of Diesel jeans but they’ve fallen by the by. The hike in price might have a lot to do with it like you say. Anyway, I’m just ignoring the fact that you are wearing my two pairs of favourite Marant footwear.
OMG OMG the Dickers! The Dickers! Can’t wait for mine to arrive. You know… I was just today saying I was NEVER going to buy jeans online again. I ordered a pair of Blank SPray On Skinnies a while back and they’ve become my favorites. But the black I snapped up at SHopBop in the same size won’t get up over my rear. So depressing. I tried on some dark Hudson Collins at TJMaxx a few days ago but I worried they were a size big and would stretch out too much. The quest continues. Those Fayza’s are great. Diesel is really coming back.
Love your ability to keep a dress and boots so feminine – I cannot do this 😦
I love jeans too but have just cut my bootcut ones into shorts as they are a style that just doesn’t suit me anymore
Those are nice bottoms! 🙂 I want also to have those on my wardrobe 🙂 By the way, maybe we could follow each other on Bloglovin and/or GFC, Facebook?
Please leave me a comment on my blog and follow by blog!

I will follow you back! 🙂
Those jeans do look amazing and super great you got them for a steal on ebay, but Jeez haven’t Diesel got really expensive. Brand Alley sometimes has some good bargains though, I got a nice bag leather Diesel bag from there quite recently, and that was a steal too!

Love your Dicker Boots and consider to get those.
Your boots are from F/W 2013, right?
The colour is so confusing. I thought they were taupe first. But the right corner picture shows it is camel with a undertone of yellow?
Could I know which one is closest to the actual colour? I am thinking to buy camel ones, but afraid that they are too yellow or mustard. Your reply will be of great help to me.
Hi Tessa! I have the camel from 2012 – they are yellowy as opposed to grey – I love them and they are a great neutral. I hope this helps you!! xx
