CJ Jeans by Cookie Johnson

Happy New Year everyone!
I am excited about entering in to a new year with a fresh start and positive outlook. I pray for many blessings and great things ahead for all of us.

I'm happy to start off the new year doing something different, discussing a new brand of premium denim called CJ jeans. The jeans debuted last summer and the designer is none other than Cookie Johnson the wife of popular ,former NBA superstar and current business man and TNT basketball commentator Magic Johnson.

Cookie, who has a degree in Retailing of Clothing and Textiles, decided to to enter the premium denim game out of frustration from not being able to find jeans that properly fit her curves. She says that she has created a more contoured jean with more room in the thighs and butt area that still fit nicely at the waist. The jeans also run from size 24 (2) to size 38 (18) which will accommodate a much larger population of women ,who come in all wonderful shapes and sizes, then most other premium denim brands do.

Cookie teamed up with denim guru Micheal Glasser, the brains behind Seven For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity and owner of Rich and Skinny Jeans, to deliver a amazing lineup of great looking jeans that include bootcut, straightleg, highwaist and skinny styles.

Oprah has listed the jeans as one of her favorite things. I look forward to trying on a pair and letting you all know how it went.
