My second review for this week is on the Paige Premium Curson Cargos in Slate. They are Paige’s brand new cargo pant for Fall/Winter and they come in 4 colours; Slate, Black and Moss for the new washes or Super Tanzania for the older wash.
The fit of these cargo pants is no more than you would expect from the brand, they have the gorgeous skinny fit, much like the Skyline jeans but they are made of a cotton material instead of denim. They do have some stretch to them and the back pockets are a bit different to normal, the usual Paige lines on the left side of the pocket are oversized and quite a statement, I love that! They also don’t have the regular Paige curved line of stitching on the back pockets either. They are completely plain. The pockets at the knees fit in the right place and the inseam isn’t too long or too short. They have a wonderful fit and I’ve worn these about 3 times already!
The wash is a plain dark grey, much like its name, Slate, it is that colour and quite strong. The major problem I had with the wash of these pants was how much it bled onto my skin after every wear. Like I said, I have worn these 3 times and my legs were stained a very dark blue each time. I thought by the third wear they wouldn’t be as bad but they are so I would 100% recommend washing these before you wear them and wash them alone so they don’t dye your other garments. I never like to wash my jeans before I wear them as I feel it ruins the wash a bit but with these cargo pants, the Slate wash would look amazing slightly washed out in my opinion. Other than the dye bleeding issue they are the perfect Fall colour, they match everything as they are neutral
I’m still very much in love with cargo pants. I’ve always been a girl who lives in jeans so it does make a nice change to switch to cargo pants sometimes and give the jeans a break, but while still keeping the amazing fit of your favourite brands. I’m really glad that skinny cargo pants came on the scene and have been as popular as they are. If you haven’t tried a pair yet then I would definitely recommend them! The thing I love most about the cargos is not only how detailed they are but how versatile, you can wear them with heels, wedges, boots, sandals and sweaters, vests, tank tops, shirts… They go with almost anything! As long as you keep the colours trending and don’t pair them with something too smart you are good to go! Buy these Paige Premium Curson Cargos at Paige Premium online for $169.

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick were seen picking up their son, James, at school and taking him to Toys R Us toy store in Times Square, New York for his birthday late last month. I think Sarah looks really good here, her legs look long and slim even though she is petite.
She was wearing Paige Premium’s Peacock jeggings which are made from their signature stretch corduroy. I saw these jeans when I went to go and see Paige’s new line earlier this year. They are really cute! I’m loving the colours she is bringing out lately! These cords are going on my wish list! The colour is stunning. Buy these at Paige Premium for $148.
Mila Kunis attended Film Independent’s Screening of Black Swan at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California a couple of days ago. This is definitely one of the plainer outfits that I have seen on a celeb, it looks like Mila didn’t make much effort to dress up but she still looks good. I am unsure on how pale the shirt is though.
Mila’s jeans are J Brand’s 901 stretch leggings in Remy. She paired them with black heels and a silk style shirt. The wash of these jeans is really nice. I find that with grey jeans, sometimes they can look too pale or too dark and not have enough depth to them but this Remy wash combines both depth and a medium grey tone, it’s really pretty!

It’s been a while since we featured Paris Hilton on DenimBlog as she doesn’t wear that much denim. She posed for the paps with her custom pink Bentley Continental GT as she was filming outside a house in Beverly Hills, California yesterday. It looks like it was a bit nippy outside for Paris, haha!
She was wearing a pair of Siwy Hannah jeans in Temptest wash with Christian Louboutin leopard pony hair heels and lots of layers on her top half. I love the jeans and I love the shoes! I was wondering where the pink was in her outfit but I guess she doesn’t need it with her car! Buy Siwy jeans at Boutique To You.
