is siwy the answer?

i've been feeling a little frustrated with jeans lately. you see, i've been dying for a pair of distressed denim, flares or skinnys. i've looked at tons of different stores and i haven't been able to find the right combination of elements (fit, pocket placement, colour and rip ratio) to satisfy me. i feel like the jeans have to be perfect in all categories or it's just not worth the big bucks for something that's relatively trendy and well to be honest, not going to hold up for long. i mean i could just distress a pair of jeans i already own for free, right? the problem is that they probably won't end up looking as nice as a pair done professionally and i really love the style. i'm into a darkish to very dark denim, either skinny, slouchy skinny or slim through the thigh and very flared. the rips need to be throughout but not overpowering and the pockets need to flatter the bum, not too low. i thought i'd found the answer in current elliot but the pockets and the paint splatters bothered me, too low and too many respectively. i may have found another option though in siwy. i love the hannah in bluestorm and loyal. i can't wait to try these on in person to see if i've finally found the ones. i also love the alice boyfriend jean and all the cute shorts. the siwy campaign is so beautiful and i adore the styling. it helps that the model is gorgeous, i wish i knew who she was. what to you all think? do you have any jean suggestions? all images from siwydenim.com

Good luck with this venture lady! I'm at a total loss for advice unfortunately as I'm still on the elusive search for the perfect pair.
Today I found the BEST acid wash high-wasted denim skirt ever! At the Salvation army- I nealy let out a scream of excitement when I saw it!!! The tag said 11/12 and I was like- awesome, it's going to fit!!! and then I tried it on and it was too small !!!!!!! I couldn't believe it! It was perfectly weathered and worn in and the wash was beyond perfect- totally Balmain. I'm soooo devastated that I had to leave it behind.
