Here is a peak at the denim looks from the new Holiday 2011 Look Book from Guess. I’ve never tried Guess jeans, or really been a fan of them… until now. Looking at this Look Book actually makes me want to try the brand, they have so many cute pieces, especially the bold leopard jeans above, the purple ones and other styles. It’s an amazing collection! What do you think of it? I have included some of their press release below.
Guess delivers another trend defining collection for Fall 2011 proving that the near-thirty year old lifestyle brand is still a pioneer in the denim and sportswear arena. The women’s fall collection is built upon two key denim fits, the flare and cropped cigarette leg, both styles which have been seen all over the runways. The Brittney Flare jean, one of the signature seventies flare jeans seen in the fall 2011 collection, can be paired with one of our romantic blouses and platform shoes that round out the pre-fall delivery.
The cuffed skinny leg is also making a huge comeback and can be seen in the Brittney Skinny jean and Cropped Cigarette jean all of which look great worn with a fur trimmed cardigan creating that easy luxe look for fall. The animal print story extends beyond dresses, tops and jackets and can be seen in the delivery’s animal printed scarves, shoes and clutches. Faux fur is also an important trend for fall and can be seen throughout the collection as trims on sweaters, faux shearling vests, capes and outerwear.

This weeks denim review is on a pair of 7 For All Mankind Gwenevere skinny jeans in Zuma Sunrise which I got sent from the brand. These actually remind me a lot of the slashed knee ones I reviewed late last year but without the rips so they are more versatile.
I think it’s actually impossible for me to pick what my favourite part of these jeans is, I love everything about them. There isn’t one thing that I don’t like. They are very versatile in the sense they go with everything and you can style them however you want to, I cuffed these for the review so I could make it a little different to the other 7 For All Mankind reviews I have done. I find they can look more casual if you roll the hems a bit and pair them with wedges or heels but if you keep them full length you can dress them up a bit. I love wearing my jeans cuffed or rolled at the moment, I got a bit bored of wearing them full length all the time and it makes a nice change to my outfits when I go out.
The Gwenevere fit is my favourite fit from the brand actually, it’s a perfect skinny jean. It has a lower rise and the inseam is around 30 inches which is perfect for me and those of us who have shorter legs. These are the 2 reasons that the Gwenevere is my preferred skinny from them. The others have higher rises and longer inseams which just don’t work all that well for me. The pocket placement on these is absolutely perfect as well, just as you would expect from one of the leading premium denim brands. They are in the right place to give you that pert butt look and to also be really flattering. I took these in a size 27 which is my normal 7 For All Mankind size so I think it’s safe to say they run true to size.
The Zuma Sunrise wash is amazing too! I thought the name was incredibly cute and it does remind me of Gwen Stefani since her son is called Zuma, ha ha. It’s a perfect shade of mid to light blue with subtle whiskering at the lap area and the right amount of fading down the legs to make them look slim and the perfect lighter shade on the butt to give your butt a rounded appearance. The other thing I love about this wash is that they chose blue stitching for the jeans, they got that spot on! If they had picked the classic orange thread then it would have ruined these jeans in my opinion, the blue keeps the tone just right and makes these jeans special.
The fabric is also incredibly soft and very stretchy so they are extremely comfortable to wear, it’s easy to spend a whole day wearing them and not feel uncomfortable. I can tell that I love these jeans because I have worn them about 4 times in two weeks and that’s a lot for me, they have been the ones I have been reaching for all the time at the moment! If you love skinny jeans and you love 7 For All Mankind then I would absolutely recommend this pair to you, you will love them! If you haven’t tried the brand yet then I think these would be the perfect jeans to venture into the 7 For All Mankind world with! I try to keep my reviews as honest as possible to keep them all fair and this is honestly how I feel about these. They have quickly become my new favourites! Buy these jeans online at 7 For All Mankind for $189.
Carmen Electra was seen returning to her trailer with slightly damp hair after filming scenes for her new movie ‘2 Headed Shark Attack’ in Florida Keys yesterday. I’ve always thought that she is really beautiful, she has a pretty face and a very womanly figure.
Carmen chose to wear a short pair of Citizens of Humanity shorts with a tank top and flip flops. I don’t know if this is an outfit for the movie or her own but I like it, it’s simple and casual and the shorts fit her perfectly. I think I am adding these to my wish list! I’ve not tried the brands shorts before but I do love their jeans, the Avedon Slick Skinnies are one of my go to pairs! Buy Citizens of Humanity at Shopbop.com.
