A Torrid Affair + Stiletto Skinny Jeans Review
So I was a bad, bad blogger and never posted pictures of the lovely event Torrid put on to show off their new denim fit, Stiletto. I recently received a pair of the Stiletto fit courtesy of Torrid, so I thought it was a perfect time to do a recap of the preview party as well as show you how awesome this denim fit is! I also need to say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” to Dani at DIY Fatshion for passing on her invite to me so that I could attend this event!
Nicole, Olivia, and I walked to the venue together, which was a breath of fresh air after having to deal with taxis all week. I think we were around the first ones there, and we were able to immediately speak with Katherine, Torrid’s Social Media Specialist, and Jennifer, Torrid/Hot Topic’s Director of Communications. All of Torrid’s representatives were incredibly friendly, and they had racks of denim for us to look and try on. Of course, being me, one of the first things I did was accidentally bump into a guy with a tray, which sent food flying. I really know how to make an entrance, right? Anyway! Here are the highlights:
Nicole, Sam, and I enjoying a chat. Sam’s dress was actually a skirt pulled up. Love it!
Olivia and Kristina cracking us all up
Can you tell how Kristina feels about her Stiletto jeans?
Trying on the Stiletto Ankle Zip jeans. They actually didn’t zip up all the way that day! Luckily, that wasn’t a problem when I received my pair to keep.

I was wearing Torrid’s Black Luxe Skinny jeans. Love them!
The party was a lot of fun, and it gave me a chance to talk more with bloggers who I had just met or known about for a long time. Even though the Stiletto jeans didn’t fit me perfectly at the showing, I was excited to receive my pair at home, and to my surprise they fit perfectly. I received the Ankle Zip style, and unfortunately, the regular Broadway Stiletto jean (which I think is the slightest bit longer) is not available in a size 28 online. Hopefully it will show up soon so I can purchase a pair!
I was having a relaxing day at home and out on the boat, so paired my ankle zip Stiletto jeans with a simple black tube top from Torrid and then a lace overlay also from Torrid. The lace top originally had tassels, but I snipped those off to get a more contrasting crop top. The Stiletto jeans are perfect for relaxing or being on the go. They are stretchy and light, but not so stretchy and light that you feel like you’re not wearing denim.. ya know what I mean? I’ve worn this pair a couple times now, and they don’t lose their shape, which is a quality you don’t find often in plus-size denim!
The Stiletto Ankle Zip Skinny jean is a slightly lighter color than I usually wear. It’s a nice change to my wardrobe with its slight fading/whiskering and ankle zip detail.
Being 5’4″, these jeans hit me directly on my ankle, whereas some bloggers have been showing it above their ankle. I love both looks, and I like to wear my length with high heels to elongate my ankles. I’ve also found that these jeans are really easy to cuff at the bottom if you want them slightly shorter.
My favorite part of the fit of these jeans is that they actually fit my bum properly! No gaping at the back; no shimming down (and me pulling them up) throughout the day. And the pockets are the appropriate size too! It seems like common sense stuff, but I very rarely find jeans with all of these qualities!
Well, those are my two cents on the Stiletto fit denim at Torrid. I definitely recommend them if you’re into this kind of cut, and you should order your regular size.
Thank you, Torrid, for the wonderful time at your event and for these chic Stiletto skinnies!
What do you think of the Stiletto fit?
