Sorry I didn’t get chance to do a denim review last week! I try to do one every week for you readers but sometimes it’s not possible, I also haven’t included laid down images of the shorts either, just modeled photos. This weeks review is on the Raven Denim cut off boyfriend shorts in Spirit wash. Halle Berry has also been spotted in these shorts in a different wash!
I got these shorts a little while ago (not knowing what to expect as I have never tried Raven Denim before) and I was very suprised! The fit is really good! I wasn’t expecting them to fit as nice as they do as I am always apprehensive about trying new brands as I tend to stick to what works for me and what I like. The pocket placement on these is in the perfect place! It’s always so important to get the pockets in the correct place on the butt as it makes such a different to how jeans fit you. I also love that you can see the pocket lining under the hem of the shorts, I always think that’s cute!
I don’t like jeans or shorts that are really branded so I am pleased with the Raven Denim logo just being a little R on the top right of the right back pocket. It’s unique and you can tell they are Raven Denim when you see this logo but it’s not invasive. Two things I would like to alter if possible, to fit my body and likes more, is the leg opening and the shade of the wash. The leg opening I find a little too big and a little too heavy, I would feel better in these shorts if the denim was a little thinner around the hem as it can get a little puffy. The wash also is a little too light for my taste, it’s a pretty wash but I would love it even more if it was a couple of shades darker or some distressing was put on this wash at the front instead, that would make them perfect!
I actually really like these shorts and I am very impressed with Raven Denim. Since I hadn’t tried them before I am really pleased with how well they fit! They are very flattering and so cute! I hope we see a lot more celebs in these shorts and jeans from the brand too! Buy these shorts at National Jean Company for $153.

Kristin Cavallari wore the tiniest pair of shorts while she was seen filming an episode of The Hills in Los Angeles, California last week. She was wearing Black Orchid’s Black Star Mini Shorts in Snow White with heels and a cropped sweater. I think these shorts are really cute! Kristin rocks them and she definitely has the legs to make them work! They are too short for me though, I don’t think I could pull those off at all!
Over here in the UK The Hills is aired later than in the US so I am quite a lot of episodes behind I think, but what does everyone think of all the drama? I’ve kind of gone off of it, I used to really like it but now it’s just too catty and too much going on. I prefer The City now, I love that so much more because you get an insight as to what it’s like at a magazine company like Elle! I love Elle! Buy Black Orchid denim at Boutique To You.
Kate Moss and Jamie Hince were spotted walking hand in hand after having lunch at a Sushi restaurant in central London, England a couple of days ago. Kate was wearing her Siwy Hannah jeans in Rain wash with some brown sandals, a jacket and a striped top. I really like this outfit on her actually, I love the neutral tones, they seem to work well together.
With this hot weather we are having I am wondering if Kate is actually boiling hot in that jacket and those jeans. I know I would be! I was also wondering, what does everyone think of Kate’s collection for Topshop? I know it’s been going for a while but have any of you readers worn anything from the line? I haven’t myself as I don’t find a lot of it to be my style but I think she makes a good designer. Buy these jeans at Boutique To You for $185.
