This weeks review is on the Black Orchid Black Devil Zipper skinny jeans in Thunder. I have had these quite a long time and a few of you have been asking for a review on them.
When I first saw these jeans on celebs like Kristin Cavallari and I saw the wash in their regular jeggings as well, I fell in love. The wash is definitely a very pretty blue, it’s gorgeous! The wash is my favourite part of these jeans actually. These are a little loose on me as I didn’t originally know that Black Orchid jeans tend to run a little big. The fabric content of these is a bit of a problem for me because I have this intolerance to polyester in jeans as it’s really itchy, it makes me feel funny and it’s not very comfortable. Since these have polyester in I don’t find them all that comfy to wear but that is only my personal preference. Many others don’t have any irritation to polyester at all, I just have very sensitive skin, so they will probably be fine for you readers.
My other concern with these jeans is the back pockets. I am really all about having the most flattering back pockets on my jeans, I like them to be in the perfect position and the perfect shape. With Black Orchid jeans I find they don’t fit my butt that well, my butt tends to stick out a bit and the pockets don’t seem to flatter it very much. The pockets look amazing on Kristin Cavallari, Ellen Pompeo and others though, they can really rock the narrower pockets that they have. Just for me I find them to not work as well but I am very fussy when it comes to my jeans. I like my pockets to be a little more wider.
Other than those 2 points, I really like the jeans. I definitely don’t want to put them down as they are a design that I really love. The zipper detail on the back pockets is incredibly cute and adds a nice edge to the jeans, the ankle zips really make them different to a lot of jeans because it adds a uniqueness to them. I also really like the button and the tags they come with. Also, like I said above, the wash is very beautiful, it’s such a deep rich blue and it’s very pretty! Maybe if I had them one size smaller and they had no poly in I would love them so much! But again, like I mentioned, I am very fussy when it comes to my jeans and that’s just my personal preference in fabric, haha. Many others adore them! Buy these jeans at Singer22 for only $136 and buy these jeans at Boutique To You for $135.

Ex Spice Girls singer Geri Halliwell was seen heading to her local church yesterday in London, England. It was so hot yesterday, I’m suprised she is in jeans! Geri picked a pair of Paige Premium jeans with heels and a white tee. I heard that Geri might be in line to judge on the panel with Simon Cowell when he brings X Factor to the USA later on this year.
I used to love X Factor so much as it was purely about singers but now it’s more of a production show and a media exploitation, I don’t like it so much anymore. I’m glad we got some good singers from it though like Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke and JLS. Geri seems to be a big fan of Paige Premium, every time I see her she is normally wearing jeans from the brand. She looks great in them! Buy Paige jeans at Paige Premium Denim.
Twilight actress Ashley Greene wore her J Brand 1041 cuffed shorts in Goldrush again while taking a break from filming on the set of her new movie Laughing Out Loud. It looks like she made a dash to the shops to pick up some 7Up. I really like this casual outfit on her, the sunglasses, the bag and the flats are all my favourite part of the outfit to go with the shorts. I think she looks really cute!
I’m not sure what Ashley’s new movie is about, although, judging by the name I would assume it’s a comedy? Ashley is also becoming one of my new favourite female celebs to blog about, along with Jess Alba, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens. I love everyone one of their styles! They all know how to dress! I loved Ashley’s red dress at the Espy awards too, she looked stunning! Buy these shorts at J Brand.
