Olivia Palermo was spotted out twice in her waxed black skinny jeans. First she was seen soing some shopping in the Meatpacking District in New York City wearing them with leopard print booties and then she was seen having lunch at Sant Ambroeus in New York City where she paired them with a faux fur vest.
We originally thought these jeans on Olivia were the J Brand Black Pearl jeans but J Brand have confirmed they are not theirs. I wonder which brand they are? They are gorgeous jeans and they look really shiny, just like I was looking for! Can any of you avid denim fans figure them out? Click this blog post to view more images.
This weeks review is on a style of jeans that I didn’t think I would like. I fell in love with these 7 For All Mankind Dojo jeans in Daring Cleo when I first saw them on Jessica Alba a little while ago and then Kourtney Kardashian. They are such a beautiful cut and they are perfect for the Fall trend of flared jeans. I thought, 7 For All Mankind are really pushing their Trouser Story jeans for Fall, so who better than the wonderful brand to try a pair?
I wasn’t 100% sure on these jeans when I first got them. The Dojo cut is very new to me and the thing that was throwing me off was how loose they are around the knees. As you know, I am always used to tight fitting jeans and it was quite strange to get used to jeans fitting tight in the hips and butt area but loose down the legs. After feeling my legs have some breathing space and get used to it, I really liked the fit. The thing I love most about them is the length, they are super long so pairing them with high heels really makes your legs look long and lean. The rise is also not too high like it is on most trouser jeans, the rise is a standard jeans height and the back pockets are 7 For All Mankind’s classic fit, but they don’t have their signature embroidery, they are completely plain. These jeans for me are also true to size, I took my normal 7 For All Mankind jeans size and they fit perfectly.
When I first saw these jeans, the thing that got me hooked on them was the wash, it’s so pretty! I had always wanted a lighter washed pair of flared jeans but a wash that had some character to it, not too plain and not too over the top. This Daring Cleo wash is just that! It’s the perfect shade of mid blue but it has nice lap whiskering details and it’s lighter around the thigh area. I really like it! I can’t see myself doing a jean that is any wider than these though, I think this is the widest I will go when it comes to trouser jeans. I can definitely see why the celebs are loving this jean in particular! I hope we see a lot more of it! Buy these jeans at 7 For All Mankind for $189.

Rachel Bilson did some shopping at Gelsons Market in Los Feliz, California last week. She didn’t choose to wear her usual brand of jeans that she loves, she opted for a pair of Paper Denim & Cloth boyfriend jeans which she tucked into boots. She looks like she is ready to fight the cold!
I’m wondering what sort of coats we will be seeing the celebs in now that Winter is drawing in. Hopefully we see some really nice ones! I’ve been looking for the perfect winter coat but I haven’t been able to find one just yet. Paper Denim & Cloth boyfriend jeans are also popular with Victoria Beckham and other celebs!
Taylor Swift performed on the NBC’s Today Show at Rockerfeller Center in New York City yesterday. She looked gorgeous in her outfit! I love the shade of the purple shirt and hat against her skin tone, it really pops! Taylor chose to wear another pair of Paige Premium Denim jeans for the performance. This time she opted for the Verdugo jeggings in Nightfall.
The one thing that does throw me off about this outfit is the boots, I think I would have preferred a pair of suede boots or something a little different, Taylor still looks beautiful though, I think she’s so naturally pretty! The Verdugo seems to be Paige’s most popular fit at the moment, all of the celebs are wearing it! It’s also my favourite! Buy these jeans at Revolve Clothing for $169.
