S and B I fancy treating myself to a nice pair of jeans when I go to the US at Easter. I'm 5ft3.....prefer a straight/cigarette leg to skinny in a vintage wash but maybe I need a dark wash?. Currently live in last years Next straight cut, vintage wash petite size 8...sometimes roll up to ankle grazer/boyfriend look. In Gap I'm size 26/30 in real straight which are about an inch too long and are horrid anyway. Any little ladies out there?
Even littler - 5ft1 . I always buy jeans from Old Navy - they have loads of different washes/styles. They're part of Gap I think but I've never got on with Gap jeans whereas I always find something at ON. (they have a website too)
Paige are great, but expensive. I personally love how my bum looks in True Religion, though they can be a bit OTT in style and might even be a bit...passé. There are a few understated styles out there.
I would recommend looking in the uk sales now... Donna Ida and Harvey Nichols. When I was in New York in October I didn't come across anything like the low prices/selection currently available in the end of these uk sales. You can pick up lots of pairs for £50ish at moment. Most sites give inside leg length so I guess you need to be checking those and tending towards the 29s?
