Paige will be offering a full range of men’s and women’s sizes, available for over $100 off the retail prices!! Additionally you can save 60-80% off retail prices on Michael Stars tanks, tees, sweaters and activewear. I can’t believe Paige’s jeans will be around $30-40! That’s incredible! I wish I could go!
Indiana Jones Harrison Ford was spotted out and about in Brentwood, California grabbing a coffee and running some errands. We have never featured Harrison on DenimBlog before so I thought it would make a nice change. I absolutely adore the Indiana Jones movies, they are some of my favourites!
Harrison was wearing an old pair of Wrangler jeans which he paired with a brown leather flying style jacket, a black t-shirt, sunglasses and black loafers. I can’t believe he is 68 already! He’s still looking really good for his age! Are any of you a fan of Harrison and his movies?

I’m going to be doing 2 reviews this week again as I have many jeans to get through and share with you. The first review is on these Marc Allison Shirl Classic Bell Flare jeans. I have had them for a while and I think you will love them if you are a fan of flared jeans!
The fit of these jeans is really slimming. It’s really tight fitting in the butt area and the thighs but it flares out into a big bell bottom from the knee down. This is the perfect way to create a flared jean in my opinion. You need the tighter and flattering fit up the top, like you would with a skinny jean, but you need them to be bigger from the knee down to give that great silhouette while not swamping and hiding your figure. They also have that thick hem which adds that classic look to a trouser style jean.
The back pockets are plain as you know from Marc Allison jeans, they just have their little logo on the top right of the right pocket. The simplicity of these jeans is wonderful! They do run true to size for the brand, I am generally a 28 in Marc Allison and these fit me perfectly. They have a really long inseam though, I am wearing 5 inch heels with these jeans and they still just about touch the floor. They would be suited to really tall people or shorter people who love to wear heels.
The wash is a classic and simple medium blue wash. It has a very bright tone to it so they are really blue. It’s not too in your face though like some extremely blue washes. The wash and denim is really soft as well. It makes these jeans incredibly comfy to wear and I love that! There is nothing worse than a really itchy and scratchy fabric!
