Colored-Denim at Joe Fresh

Tried on a few pair of colored-denim in the past few days. I like the J. Crew ones (see review here) but they are too pricey. Not sure about these bright-colored denim would be carried on to next season. A bit risky to spend the kind of money.

There are a lot of alternatives. Went to Zara, H&M, Gap, Winners and they have numerous styles to choose from. Tired of trying on different styles and one day ended up to take a break and go to Loblaws(grocery store) to get some fruits. They carry clothing from Joe Fresh and I have a few items there. Even though the price is very affordable, the quality is still there.

I picked up a pair of red slim  for $19


Worn here with J Crew Silk Boy Shirt in Heart Throb and old Eddie Bauer cotton sweater

They are slim fit but very comfortable. I picked up a size 6.


They are not capri and since they are more of a " toothpick" style, go all the way down to my ankles. Since it is not as warm as I would like to be, I need to wear socks with my loafers(not shown here) but I think they go well with or without socks.

The material is very soft. I find some cheaper versions of colored-denims, the material could be very hard and stiff. 

I still want to get a pair of different color, like bright blue or green. But not sure if Joe Fresh has other colors available. I was kind of rushed that day so would definitely have to go back and check it out. 

Also picked up a shirt dress: 


The one I picked up is navy with cream stripes. It is $29. It is 100% cotton. Very soft but thicker than your regular tee. Very substantial material, 3/4 length with slits on elbows, adding extra detail to the simple casual dress. The one I got has the green stripe at the very bottom of the dress. Length goes down to 3 inches above my knees ( I'm almost 5'6") so I would definitely have to wear it with either tights or leggings, unless I feel brave enough to go with such short length dress at my age.

Sometimes it is just exhilarating to find great clothing items when you are least expected. And when the prices are so affordable, it is always a bonus.

    1. Thank you very much! I have never owned a pair of bright colored jeans before and this is my first pair. Of all the shocking vibrant colors, I like red, green and the bright blue the best.

  4. Woot! They look great - and how can you beat $19. The colors I've seen in Ottawa were red, light grey, and white ones so far. Also! Have you seem their little cardigans - dead ringers for J. crew's jackie cardigan but only for $16!! I got a navy and am so happy with it :)

    1. Yes, I have seen their cardigans. So nicely-made. Contemplating on getting one. Have you tried their makeup? I couldn't find much in Toronto, just the odd lip gloss and manicure set.

    1. Yes, love the price. I like the J. Crew ones but they are too pricey and their rate of sale is so slow these days. My golden doodle likes to be included in most pictures when I set the auto-timer of the camera. He likes to either stand right in front of the camera for some reason.

    1. I have never owned a bright-colored denim before and I'm glad I found these for a great price. I really can't justify in getting a pair for so much money at J. Crew and maybe just wear them for one season. Yes, you're right. Think I should wear the shirt dress without leggings. Just with a pair of flats would be great.

    1. How's the weather over there? It has been warm and sunny this week in Toronto, ON. Hopefully spring is near. But knowing where I live, we would still be hit by a couple of snow storms before spring hits.
