Ellen Pompeo was seen arriving on the T-Mobile Magenta Carpet at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game at L.A Live with producer Chris Ivery in Los Angeles, California last month. Ellen was wearing a really casual outfit that consisted of dark wash flared jeans with a pale yellow long sleeved tee.
I have been trying to figure out these jeans on Ellen for a while now, they are not the J Brand Bette or the 7 For All Mankind Georgina jeans and I can’t seem to find any that look similar to these. Do any of you readers know what these could be? You can buy flared jeans at Singer22.com.

I was so excited when I found out about this shoe collaboration between Paige Premium and Terry de Havilland, so I am finally sharing the details with you now.
Denim expert Paige Adams-Geller is launching an exclusive collaboration with famed shoe designer Terry de Havilland for Spring/Summer 2011. These two innovative design leaders have joined forces to create a powerful capsule collection of four must-have shoes, using Paige’s renowned denim expertise and Terry’s unconventional and inspirational creativity.
‘Emma’ – Inspired by a key Terry de Havilland design. This shoe-boot is offered in two of Paige’s premium denim fabrics – ‘Masai grey’ and ‘Crete olive’ – and is finished with elegant metallic leather. A sexy yet feminine peep-toe platform shoe boot which shapes the leg beautifully, creating an elegant and structured silhouetted.
‘Lotte’ – A Terry de Havilland signature style. This sexy, platform stiletto has been re-created using Paige’s best selling ‘McKinley’ and Camo printed denim. Stud hardware detail punctuates the shoe, creating a powerful statement. An edgy summer heel – perfectly styled with a pair of Paige Denim jeans.
“I get approached by many brands and most of the time they just do not fit the Terry de Havilland brand. Paige was different, I have been looking at denim for a while and therefore I had plenty of ideas of how to use the fabric on shoes” Terry de Havilland.
“Terry de Havilland is an expert craftsman and true custom designer, while his attention to detail mirrors the values we hold so important here at Paige Denim. Not only are our brands built on the same foundations of fit and detail but we also share a love of shoes!” Paige Adams-Geller.
I think my favourite has to be the Emma, I love it! It’s gorgeous in the grey and a shoe that I would definitely wear. What do you think of the new shoe collaboration?
Kate Moss is definitely making a lot of appearances here on DenimBlog lately! This time she was photographed leaving the Ritz Hotel in Paris, France with Jamie Hince as they made their way to board the Eurostar. I honestly didn’t think Kate would be the type to ride the Eurostar, I thought she would only fly!
Kate was wearing her Paige Premium Verdugo Jeggings in Stratus wash which she paired with black boots, a black tank top and a long coat. I definitely prefer it when she wears grey jeans, she never seems to wear colour, so even adding the light wash jeans makes a big change to her overall look. Buy these jeans at Paige online for $158 and you can read my review on these jeans here.

This weeks review is on a different pair of jeans, INDI Custom Denim jeans. I made these jeans on their website a few weeks ago and it was a really fun process.
First you start out by choosing the type of fit you would like for your jeans which then takes you to the builder page where you get to select everything else. There are 5 different medium to dark washes to choose from and 2 different fabric weights. Then you get to select the colour of the stitching you want, the rise, zipper or button fly, what sort of leg opening you would prefer, the hem stitching size and whether or not you want a coin pocket and then you go on to select what sort of pockets you would like and if you want any embroidery on the back pockets. You then finally go on to the measurements section where you type your height, weight, inseam, size etc and it will calculate your perfect fit. The jeans then go on to be made to your specifics at the factory.
I think it’s a really cool process and worth the time to put all of those details in. I normally have the issue of having the jeans too tight in the waist and loose in the thighs but these have the perfect ratio for the thighs and the waist. I selected the super low rise which is a pretty standard low rise of around about 7″ and I selected skinny which turns out to be a regular skinny of a 12″ opening. The inseam also fits me perfectly. I do quite like the idea of making custom jeans as you can get the fit perfect for yourself, I just wish you had the option to design the pockets exactly how you want them, including measurements, shape and positioning. The only point I can make about these is that the pockets are just slightly off from the position I normally like them and I find the shape of them to be a bit too long and narrow for me, but that’s just my personal preference as I am extremely fussy when it comes to jeans and getting a perfect fit. These pockets are a pretty standard pocket so it seems like they would suit most people.
I’m pretty sure I selected the medium indigo with distressing wash and it turned out to be quite pretty in real life, it’s got some depth to it and subtle whiskering. It is light weight fabric so it’s quite comfortable as well. I definitely think this would be something you should try if you can’t find jeans to fit you correctly, I know a lot of you get gaping in the waist or the thighs are just way too tight in regular premium jeans or there is not enough room in the butt etc. We all have different body shapes and that’s what I like most about INDI Custom Denim, they give you the chance to create a jean just for you. One that will fit you how you want them to fit so you don’t have to put up with ill fitting jeans. You can start creating your own jeans here.
