GIVEAWAY: Allison Izu Premium Denim

The giveaway is now closed - the winner is Thu!  Congrats and send me an email to claim your prize!

Shopping for jeans has always been a bit of a nightmare for me.  Being 5'2" with a 27" inseam often meant that I had to hem every single pair.  But then it seemed like the proportions were wrong.  The thigh / knee area was always off and I hated that self-hemming my jeans meant that the hem didn't have the faded pattern (see Kelly's post here on original vs. regular hemming on jeans) that regular jeans had.

"To hell with hemming!"

Allison Izu, a denim brand specifically catering to petites (that is women 5'6" and under), not only offers a variety of sizes / inseams, they have also solved the problem of proportions.  The waist-hip-knee-ankle ratio as well as other denim details are now proportioned for petite figures.  See Allison Izu denim reviews from Extra PetitePetite Little Girl, and Really Petite.


Now on to the fun part - win a pair of Allison Izu Premium Denim with the size and style of your choosing!

The winner will be randomly drawn on December 4th and will need to contact me within 2 days to claim their prize.  If unclaimed, another winner will be drawn.

To enter, please leave a separate comment for each of the following:
  1. Visit the Allison Izu website and let me know which style is your favorite
  2. (Optional Bonus Entry) Publicly follow this blog (click "follow" in my sidebar)

  7. I'm not entering the giveaway as I don't think any of the jeans will work for me, but as a fellow DIY-er, I want to recommend this jeans hemming tutorial that allows you to keep the original hem:

    http://www.daciaray.com/?p=38

    It solved all my jean hemming problems! Compared to the "old-fashioned" way, it's faster for me and it's a lot easier for my cheap sewing machine to sew. I never cared about the original hem, but keeping that is a plus.

    As for the jeans that you already hemmed the other way: I recently started getting the Threads magazine, and one issue had advice on distressing denim. Try lightly dabbing some bleach with a q-tip onto the hem and washing the jeans. If you want a worn look, whack the hem with a hammer. I haven't tried those tips myself, but maybe you can give those a shot!

  8. This is exactly what I need right now. I've been considering never wearing jeans again. This site seems really awesome and I think I'd have to look into purchasing either way. I think my favs are the PANIOLO: Bootcut Jean.

  19. I like the Luana jeans. I have a pair of dark wash skinny jeans I wear often so I think it would be nice to have some variety with the wider leg.
