This weeks review pictures are a little different as I have been sick and wasn’t able to take pictures this weekend. These photos are from an old set which I never got around to posting because they came out a bit blurry and dark or too light etc but I have cropped some of them to the best parts and most are close ups. They are the Levi’s Curve ID Slight Curve skinny jeans.
I think the Curve ID concept that Levi’s came up with is wonderful! Having 4 different fits for different shaped women, it’s really something that needed to be done. So many of us are different shapes and sizes, some of us have large hips and a small waist, others have small hips and thighs etc. Not everyone fits the same styles and it’s amazing how different the fits are. I have tried the Bold Curve, the Demi Curve and the Slight Curve all in my size and they fit so differently!
The Bold Curve I couldn’t actually button up very well because of the small waist and the thighs and butt area were much too big on me, this cut is for the curvy ladies really. The Demi Curve fitted me in the waist and the butt but the thigh area was a bit loose on me so I tried the Slight Curve and that works out to be perfect! I have quite small legs so this Slight Curve accounts for that. It fits slim all the way down and it fits nicely in the butt area. It is a little tight in the waist but I do often have that problem, getting jeans to fit my legs is more important to me really. I haven’t tried the 4th cut, the Supreme Curve, because I know that wont fit me either, it’s for ladies with more curves.
I actually think that the Curve ID range is Levi’s best range because of how easy it is to find the perfect fitting jean for your shape. I have to say that these jeans fit me near enough perfectly, they are a little long and not quite as skinny as I would like but that’s because they are just a classic skinny and not a super skinny or ankle peg jean. The rise is a good height and the pocket placement is great. They make your butt look really rounded. The dark wash and material is one that attracts a lot of hairs though unfortunately, as you can see from the butt picture below, they are a hair magnet. I often get that with black jeans and these are a really dark navy which is pretty much almost black so I can understand why it happens.
I would definitely recommend that you try out the Curve ID range! You can take the test online on their website by clicking here where you answer questions and they tell you which fit will be best for you. It’s fun and then you can shop their Curve ID jeans. The best part is they are around $60 – $80! I think that’s a great price, but for us ladies in the UK they are around ┬ú85 as Levi’s are always a lot more expensive over here. Buy Levi’s Slight Curve jeans online at Levi’s.com.

7 For All Mankind are running a really interesting FaceBook idea! They will be hosting a chat on their Facebook page called the Denim Fit Forum. Every Thursday in September from 10AM – 12PM PST (beginning 9/8), people will have the opportunity to ask their most pressing denim fit questions to Jen Garcia from their denim design team. It’s a rare chance for fans to interact directly with a 7 For All Mankind denim designer.
The chat will be hosted on the wall of the 7 For All Mankind Facebook page, and Jen will answer questions in real time. Denim fits are so personal, and even the smallest change in a measurement dramatically alters the way a pair of jeans fits, so they are hoping this will be a valuable service to their fans and people who are interested in trying out 7 For All Mankind for the first time. A perfect fit is one of the cornerstones of the 7 For All Mankind brand – and one of the things that has defined them for over 10 years – so they take finding the perfect fit seriously! Sounds like fun doesn’t it? I’m eagerly awaiting Thursday!
Alessandra Ambrosio, her husband Jamie Mazure and their daughter Anja, spent the day at the Malibu Carnival and Chili Cook Off. It looks like they had a lot of fun and won lots of prizes!
Alessandra wore a really light pair of Wildfox shorts with flip flops and a sheer top with a scarf. It seems like most celebs who attended the Carnival chose to go casual. I think that is best suited for a day out like this. I love her look here though, it definitely has that California look to it! I’m just not too fond of the hat. Buy Wildfox at Singer22.com.

LeAnn Rimes and her husband Eddie Cibrian were snapped while spending some time at the Malibu Fair with their sons for the Chili Cook Off and Carnival.
LeAnn was wearing a pair of the J Brand cut off shorts in Red with sandals and a simple tank top. I actually have these shorts and the colour is so bright and vibrant, I love it. I think this is the best way to wear them as well, keep everything simple and let the shorts be the focal point. It’s best not to over power them. Buy these shorts at Singer22.com for $159.
