Kat's Closet: Candy Colored Jeans
Kat's Closet: Candy-Colored Jeans
By Kat Deluna | 12/07/2011 - 17:00

Bring life and color to the dreary winter season with colored skinny jeans! I love them because they're so funky, sexy and stylish! My favorite colors are red, pink and orange and even though they are jeans, in these bright colors they don't feel like it.
