I won a contest!

September 13, 2010

Jean at Extra Petite hosted an Allison Izu Premium Petite Denim Giveaway some time back and I was fortunate enough to be one of three winners (thank you random number generator). I received a pair of jeans and a top courtesy of Allison.

I decided to try the Panio Low-Rider Boot in Sz 0/31" inseam and got a small top (Allison chose the style). After some e-mail exchanges, I came home to find this nifty little package waiting for me.

Nicely packaged, came with a personalized card from Allison. What a nice touch!

And the obligatory modeling pictures. Pardon my post-dinner belly...

The size 0 fits almost perfectly. It's only a tad big around the waist and a bit tight around the thighs (thank you running and the associated thunder thighs). I am odd shaped so to find something that fits this perfectly is amazing. Goodbye Abercrombie kids jeans and hello jeans that love hips. The jeans are really nicely made, Jean mentioned that this style was made from more lightweight than some of the other jeans she tried on but I still think it's a nice thick sturdy material.

The top is really comfortable, somewhat thinner than what I am used to but would be perfect for the summer.

If I didn't already own like 20 pairs of jeans I would order the Chinatown Trousers right this minute. I am so curious about how those would look. Maybe after my ban I'll take the plunge.

  1. Congrats on winning a pair of Allison Izu denim. They look great on you. Panio Rider is my favorite style of her design.

  2. Congrats! The jeans look great on you! A tailor can take in the waist lickety-split, and since the jeans were free, it's easy to justify!

  3. congrats elle!! i never win anything...argh...haha i don't bother even entering these giveaways anymore.

    anyway that jeans look really good on you and you have a nice flat tummy....no signs on dinner bulge lol! if i didn't have so many jeans, i'd definitely give those a try.

  4. Yay! Congratulations..and they fit you beautifully!

  5. Congrats!! I've been tardy posting pics of my Allison Izu jeans because the pic quality isn't good and I keep thinking about re-taking them. But I got the same pair in 00/31 and the fit is pretty good! They're so long on me though, dragging on the ground despite 3.5" heels. Seeing the same pair on you makes me realize how short I am :P

  6. I am more jealous that you're a size 0 than I am of you winning the contest LOL! Congrats!

  7. Thanks everyone. I feel pretty lucky to have won.

    Kelly - I think the gap is manageable, you can barely see the gap after dinner. I tried it on when I first got it and the waist was loose but after some dinner the front gap was reduced significantly. :)

    Ping - don't give up. I had NO expectations of winning. I enter contests for fun. :)

    PetiteXXS - I am really interested in seeing them on you. The 00 was snug on Jean but I think you are smaller so I am interested to see how it looks in a more relaxed way (the pant legs are snug on me). I wore mine with heels too...if I hadn't it would have been way too long on me. :)

  8. Elle: congrats on winning these lovely jeans. They look awesome on you! You make me want to buy a pair badly!!

  9. I agree with PetiteXXS...I keep on forgetting how "tall" you are, tall being relative haha. Mine in 31" were soo long but these look like the perfect length on you. And although I like finally having "adult" jeans, I can't let go of my abercrombie kids...they get the job done!

  10. Congrats, Elle!! These jeans look great on u. What belly??! LOL btw, I have an award for u on my blog:)


  11. You look great! The jeans fit you very nicely :D

  13. Awe...congrats!!!!!!!!!! Lucky girl! The jeans look fantastic on you!!!!
