Hem Gems are JEANIUS!

Like the many amazing things I find via the internet, I’m not sure how I happened upon Hem Gems. Maybe I received an email. Maybe I searched for something and they popped up on my radar. Regardless, the point is, I found them …and they are literally JEANIUS!

I got so excited about them I tweeted and stumbled and tweeted again and because of my enthusiasm, the lovely ladies of Hem Gems sent me a pair of my choice! {I chose the simple & classic gold/brass rivet but the studs are equally as cute and for $19.99 for 8 -in a pack, it’s worth it to buy both styles}

Here’s how . . . look. how. simple.

Why didn’t I come up with this?

While I love ridiculously long jeans and buy ridiculously high shoes just to wear with them {because let’s be honest, they make my legs look longer, and I like that} I have friends who have to take every single pair of jeans they buy to the tailor to have them shortened. When buying ridiculously priced jeans in the first place, the last thing you want to do is spend another $10-$20 on tailoring them and have to wait to wear them, right? {I do stand by the fact that higher priced “designer” jeans do fit better and last longer and if you buy a classic style, you will wear them for years, thus worth every penny} I digress. The point here is if I typically buy a pair of jeans to wear with heels, I can’t wear them with flats without dragging them on the ground, ruing their nice hem. Or, I tuck them under or cuff them up. Sometimes I like the cuffed look, but sometimes I just want them shorter. And today, when fashion is all about showing off your shoes & cropped/ankle jeans are all the rage, Hem Gems make it so that you don’t have to buy a new pair to get that look. . . . I even think these would work at keeping “pegged” jeans in place.
