This weeks denim review is for the Charley 5.0 Skinny Mini Bow Denim Leggings in Abstract. I bought these leggings from Gilt Groupe when they had their Charley 5.0 sale. I had never tried the brand before buying these so I was wondering how good they really are and if they are flattering at all. When I got them they looked really pretty! I loved the little bow details and I never knew you could change the bows if you want to! The leggings come with interchangeable satin bows in cream and black. They attach with poppers so you just pop them on and off. Make sure you attach them on properly so they don’t fall off, I almost lost one of the bows yesterday when I was out. The leggings themselves are super stretchy and are just like normal leggings, they have no pockets on them at all so they are not like jeans. They are very very skin tight and they cling to your legs as well which I love, I don’t like it when leggings are a bit baggy. They have an inseam of around 33″ so they are perfect for the taller girls as well. They are made from 97% cotton and 3% polyurethane. The only thing I didn’t expect was for them to be made in China, I assumed like most premium denim brands with high price tags they would be made in the USA or Italy etc. This isn’t a problem for me at all, I am just letting you know everything about the leggings. If the rest of Charley 5.0′s leggings and other items are as lovely as these then I will definitely be buying more!
I really love these denim leggings! They are a new and girly way to wear this trend and the bows on the back of the ankles really make them unique, I love that about them! I definitely recommend these leggings, they are super cute with heels or flats, very versatile and very comfy! Buy these leggings in Black at Revolveclothing.

Rihanna attended a photo call while she was out on a promotional tour in Sydney for her new album ‘Rated R’. The shoot took place at Intercontinental Hotel on Sunday 14th in Sydney, Australia. She wore some printed Coup De Grace jeans by Sass & Bide with a same style print top. I would never wear this kind of outfit myself but Rihanna really rocks it! She can wear almost anything and still look hot! Buy these jeans at Sass & Bide for $290.
