Emma Roberts got snapped by the paps as she was leaving a nail salon in Beverly Hills, California two days ago. I love the red polish that she chose for her pedicure, it’s very striking!
Emma wore a pair of Blank NYC Carpenter skinny pants for the day. This is the first time we have spotted a celeb in these. I actually think they are really intriguing. They have just one zipper up the back of the left leg and a button strap around the hem of the other. They actually look a lot like carpenter pants with the details, especially the fabric loop on the side. Buy these pants at DJPremium.com for only $60.

I thought this story/video was really interesting, the history of the Original Penguin jacket, which I watched in the video, really made me smile. It’s nice to see something so popular, which got lost, be found again! I know it’s not to do with denim but Original Penguin do have jeans so I thought it was fitting. I’ve included the press release below.
More than an item of clothing, the coveted Original Penguin Jacket is a symbol of the brand and its storied history. The Jacket was said to have been created in 1956, commissioned by Original Penguin founder Abbot Pederson to celebrate the company’s first anniversary. Join us in cherishing this moment as we bring the Jacket back to life by launching a campaign inspired by its incredible storyÔÇöstarting with a video titled “Big World, One Jacket”.
This weeks review is on a brand new pair of Paige Premium jeans, the Edgemont skinny jeans in Super Rebellious. These jeans are a new take on Paige’s classic skinny jean, she’s added some really cool details to them and made a normal jean really fun and sexy!
The fit of these jeans is just like all of Paige’s other 12″ Skyline jeans, it fits just the same except these have the 2 diagonal zippers at each side of the hips. These are amazing and I think they add so much life to the jeans, they really make an ordinary jean stand out. I think they give a certain sex appeal to the jeans as well, there is something about the zippers which add a sexiness to the overall jean, especially if you wear them with heels, I don’t think these would look all that good with flats purely because the thick zippers at the hips gives the illusion that you have shorter legs. Well, they did for me because my legs are not that long, so definitely pair them with heels and they look great! I took a size 27 in these which seems to be my new Paige size, I think her jeans are running slightly bigger than previous seasons at the moment.
When I first saw the Edgemont at the press day earlier in the year, I knew it was going to be amazing! I saw it in a berry colour and it was so beautiful! I still love the berry colour but I don’t think it’s getting released unfortunately. This wash is the Super Rebellious wash and it reminds me a lot of the McKinley wash which is a classic of Paige’s. It’s a beautiful and rich dark blue with subtle lighter tones down the front of the legs to give some life to the jeans. I think the new Edgemont style, having the zippers, really pairs well with this dark wash. It makes them more easy to wear and more suitable for other occasions. Even though they are quite out there compared to a classic and plain jean, these are still versatile due to the wash. I love that about them!
Obviously these jeans are incredibly flattering on the butt, as are all Paige jeans, you will know if you are a fan of the brand! This pair doesn’t have the signature curved line of stitching on each back pocket though, these are plain which I think makes them a little more different too. The lining is also funky! It’s a different type of lining to the flowers Paige usually uses, it’s more quirky and I love it!
Also, even though these have 30% polyester in them, they don’t irritate me. I’m always irritated by polyester, it makes my skin itch and feel horrible because I have super sensitive skin, but these don’t. I think it’s purely because they are a thicker and sturdier denim which is not scratchy at all, it’s really soft and it doesn’t even feel like it has polyester in it. Sometimes when you try a pair of jeans and you can feel they are rough and a bit scratchy, you know they will itch. These are really soft and I think the amount of cotton in them hides the feel of the polyester well. I never thought I would say that! These are a jean with polyester in that I can actually tolerate!
I would definitely say give these jeans a go if you can afford the $259 price tag, they are definitely different and I love them. I think Paige should release these in the ankle peg skinnies as well, these were a little long on me so I had to bunch tuck the hems a bit. (I plan on making a video to show you how to do this soon actually). I would also love them in the Verdugo jegging, that would be fantastic! I hope Paige keeps this style as part of her collection for next season too. Buy these jeans at PaigeUSA for $259.

“Mad Men” star January Jones visited her doctor in Santa Monica, California a few days ago. I’ve often wondered just how annoying it might be to have the paps follow you everywhere, even to the doctors, that has to be so frustrating since the doctors is a personal place.
January wore her favourite pregnancy jeans, her Mama J by J Brand straight leg jeans in Heritage with jeweled sandals, a white tunic and a bright green bag. I usually love brightly coloured bags but I feel like this one is too strong for the outfit, I think a neutral one would have looked a lot nicer. It’s a gorgeous colour on its own though! Buy these jeans at J Brand for $196.
