Zac Efron was leaving the set of his new movie New Years Eve in New York a couple of days ago. He caught the attention of a few fans and smiled at them politely before he left. The one thing I like about Zac, besides his dress sense, is how nice he is to his fans, he always has time for them.
Zac was wearing his usual outfit for his on set character, he wore the Levi’s 511 Skinny jeans in Black Stretch with a Diesel Wurra Jacket. I wonder if Zac is going to change his outfit at all? I know the movie is probably set over one day like Valentines Day was, but hopefully there might be an outfit change. Buy these jeans at Levi’s for $58 and buy the jacket at Diesel for $395.

Nick Jonas was spotted leaving a meeting late in February in Los Angeles, California. He looks so good in this outfit! It’s casual but the jacket adds a more smarter touch to it. Nick was wearing his Closed Denim skinny jeans with black shoes, a grey tee and a black blazer. I think this is my favourite outfit I have seen on him!
His shoes remind me a lot of Zac Efron’s choice in footwear too. Like Jonathan mentioned before, I am glad the Jonas Brothers no longer wear the super skinny jeans they used to, it was just not flattering on their thighs at all. If you are going to wear the really skinny, legging style jeans then you need to have really slim legs or it doesn’t work out unfortunately.

Diesel has come out with a new collection of jeans for their brand, the Dirty New Age Denim. Diesel have been using mud and oil and other natural substances to create unique washes for many years now but this time they have taken it a step further. Putting together the development and research of the last 10 years, these washes combine many techniques and heavily introduce the use of natural dirty colors as the next step for Diesel Denim. I love the Darron 8MZ!
They have been studying for ten years and developing to create new shades of dirty denim for you. They combined over six types of treatments, a bleaching process and even a golden brush. Diesel applied the dirt by hand in some instances just to give you a Shade of Rust. Vertical hatching and manual abrasions added to the hype of the 3D whiskering in their new Shades of Stripes. Red cast denim was pressed and given white spots. From that they came up with the new Shade of Chalk. 3D evolution and shadow treatments teamed up with other effects to create shades of mud. Other great washes came about during this denim exploration including Raw Paint and Shades of Foam, Sand, and Linen. Diesel did all of this, just to say… Welcome to the Diesel Denim DIRTY NEW AGE!
I came across Mary Frances bags a while ago and I became obsessed with how pretty they are! She makes the most unique and wonderful bags I have seen, she has guitar shapes, apples, bows, flowers, telephones, fish bowls, piano’s, owls and so many more designs! Each of the bags are hand made and feature a lot of embellishment in the form of crystals, beads and sequins etc.
What struck me the most was that she has a whole denim collection! Handbags, clutches, purses, necklaces and even a compact mirror! They are all made from premium denim fabric and they are really pretty! Denim bags to me are not usually anything special, I find them to be quite bland and boring but Mary Frances combines the fabric with class and girlishness so the products are wonderful!
I have the premium denim clutch which is featured above and I obsess over it! It has the cutest fabric and beaded flower in the top corner as you can see and it’s sparkly too. It’s one of my favourite clutches. I find it perfect for me because I am going somewhere smart where no denim is allowed, I can still wear denim with this clutch! I always love to have denim, being obsessed with it like I am and all, ha ha.
The amount of time and effort that goes into her bags is incredible, you can really appreciate them much more because of it. The bag also features a denim strap with a metal chain on it which is detachable so you can wear it as a shoulder bag or keep it as a clutch. I always prefer clutches as I can never get used to a strap across me! What do you think of the bags? I also own the really pretty Take A Bow clutch which is extra girly and not made of denim. You can buy all of the denim bags here.
