To get a little extra inspiration for our constant hunt for the perfect pair of jeans, we caught up with five of our favorite cool girls to follow to find out where, how and when they scored their favorite pair of jeans.

MARI GIUDICELLI, SHOE DESIGNER AND MODEL, BROOKLYN, NY

“I found these at a shitty thrift store in Brooklyn, and love how unique they are. I wonder if they are juniors. I love the texture of it, the faded line on the legs and the fit which is just perfect.” @marigiudicelli

ELISE JOSEPH, FREELANCE CREATIVE DIRECTOR, NASHVILLE, TN

“I inherited this pair of old men’s APC jeans from a much-shorter friend of mine, but I love how they’ve broken in to fit me just right, and the cropped length doesn’t bother me. What were once a pair of stiff, rigid denim now feel like a worn-in dream.” @pennyweight (Photo by Arden Wray for Boots & Pine)

BRITTANY BATHGATE, BLOGGER, NORWICH, UK

“My favorite pair of denim is a vintage pair of Levis 501s. Before finding these jeans I had gone through so much trial and error with denim, 501s in particular, before finding ‘the one’. It wasn’t until my pal Sophie at Finch came along and answered my denim prayers. She had been collecting vintage 501s for some time, and just so happened to have a smaller pair in her collection which fit me perfectly. They’ve broken in perfectly and have this dreamy wash and feel to them that you can’t find in new denim. I cut them myself for a cropped frayed look. I reach for them so often that they’ve become almost like a faithful best friend.” @brittanybathgate

HELEN LEVI, CERAMICIST, BROOKLYN, NY

“I love the 1969 606 jeans from Levi’s. I have two pairs. They’re pretty spendy but if you wait for a sale online they’re so worth it. And no, they didn’t come with a rip in the knee! They’re worth it to me because they reference all the vintage jeans I’ve been searching for, but they actually fit my body and have just a tiny bit of stretch which helps them be comfortable all day without getting too loose. And the rise is high so I don’t have plumber butt, but it’s not too high that it’s not comfy. Can you tell I’m all about comfort?!” @helen_levi (Photo by Backyard Bill)

VIRGINIA CALDERON, MARKETING/SOCIAL MEDIA AT OBJECTS WITHOUT MEANING, LOS ANGELES, CA

“I love denim. I’m kind of denim hoarder/collector. Nothing gets me more excited than finding a beautiful pair of vintage jeans. Pure bliss. I love how all the washes are uniquely different. My favorite pair would have to be my orange tab 517 Levi’s that I scored for $5.” @_chicadeoro
