Jennifer Carpenter was spotted out with friend January Jones to do some shopping in West Hollywood, California. usually it is January that is the one that we blog about, but she has put denim on the back burner due to her pregnancy. I would like to see her sport some denim during this lovely time in her life.
Jennifer, on the other hand, was sporting some great denim. She wore a pair of the Blank NYC Relaxed Straight Leg Jeans in Blue. I have always loved these jeans. I like the minimal distressing that they have and the relaxed fit of them. You can click here to purchase these jeans at ShopBop for $71.
Gavin Rossdale was spotted giving the thumbs up as he was leaving Cecconi’s Italian Restaurant after having lunch in Beverly Hills, California with his family. He wore his G-Star Arc Loose Tapered jeans in Rugby Destroyed. I really like the wash of these jeans and the little destructed areas.
I think this is a great look on Gavin. I like the blazer with the jeans. I could do without the scarf or just the way it is placed around his neck, but other than that I think it is great. The shoes are a great pairing. It is dressed up, but still laid back because of the destructed tee underneath.

Beyonce was spotted at the airport in Nice, France. She wore a pair of J Brand Agnes jeans in Stealth. I’ve been waiting for her to wear these. I knew that she was going to get spotted in them sooner or later. These jeans have become quite popular lately. I feel like they are having their moment right now.
I actually quite like this look, especially the sunglasses. I’ve been looking for some round shades for the summer and I think these are ones that I need to try. I also like that she paired the jeans with a belt. I think a belt makes any pair of jeans look a bit better. They always give the illusion of them having a lower rise than they do.

Customizing my jeans have always been something that I like to do. Whether it be adding some rips and tears, slitting the hem, adding stains, zippers or just doing something random to them. I don’t think I have a pair of jeans that are exactly the way I have got them, but that is what I love. They are my own and no one else’s. Here is a post of a pair of jeans that I did a few more customizations on than my others.
I recently received a pair of the J Brand Agnes Jeans in Black. I always wanted to try this style out. Being that they didn’t have pockets, I would always second guess purchasing these jeans. I finally decided to get the style because they are one of the amazing pairs out.
My first thought to do was to just add some pockets. Then I thought, “Hmmm…What else can I do to these to make them even more my own?” I then came to the conclusion to do a bit more than what I intended.
First thing I did was detach the third bottom portion off the jeans. This part was actually a lot easier than what I actually anticipated. I then switched the legs so that the zippers are placed at the inseam instead of at the outside of the jeans. I stitched the portion back to the rest of the jeans the way it was stitched before taking it apart so that it still had the same hold and motorcycle style.
After I finished sewing the legs back together, I slit the pocket panels under the hip zippers so there would be access to the pockets when it is unzipped. Then I got some pocket sacks and sewed them to the panels so there would be a place to hold my items. The only thing that I have wished I had done before hand was to dye the pockets black before I had attached them, but I can always detach and reattach them back on.
Now that I have finished making these jeans my own, they have become one of my favorites. I love that I can now put my personal belongings into the front pockets of the jeans and zip them up for safety. Now if only I can figure out how to wax these to give them a leather look?
