Charlie St. Cloud star Zac Efron, poses for a photo in Marina del Rey, California for the Charlie St. Cloud Press junket last weekend. Zac was wearing a pair of SPURR Rigid Denim jeans for the pictures. Simon Spurr is a new brand to me so I thought I would share some info on the designer. Simon was born in England and he graduated in men’s fashion design in 96. He’s had experience working with other denim brands including Calvin Klein jeans. Looking at his jeans, I think they are nice. I hope we see more from him soon!
Zac is always one to try out different denim. I know he loves raw jeans as well since he has raw Nudie, APC and G-Star jeans. This is another pair for him to add to his collection! He looks good in his casual outfit though, one thing I like about Zac is that he really knows how to dress and most importantly, he always knows what clothes work best for his body too. Check out his website here. You can buy these jeans at Singer22 for $195.
I thought these shorts were the Friction wash when I saw the front of them, I recognised the distressing and grey shade! Rachel Bilson was heading to a loft with friends in Downtown Los Angeles, California. She looks adorable! Rachel was wearing a pair of Paige Premium Silverlake shorts in Friction with a pair of Lanvin Pom Pom flip flops in coral and a Chanel shoulder bag.
I don’t think the coral flip flops match the rest of the outfit but I have been eyeing these sandals for a long time since I saw them on Net-A-Porter a while ago, I love them! I hope we see Rachel in the Layne cargos by Paige soon too! She would look great in those! They are definitely her style. Buy these shorts at Revolve in the sale for only $90!

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian took a family outing to the beach in Malibu, California a few days ago. They look like such a happy family having so much fun! I always like to see both the parents and the children smiling, it’s nice to see that. I never knew LeAnn had such a great beach body either, she looks amazing!
She was also wearing a pair of Current/Elliott The Mini Mini shorts in Sun Exposed One Pocket. I really love these shorts! I haven’t really been a fan of the missing one back pocket trend but I think the wash and the fit of these shorts makes me forget about that aspect of them. They look so cute and fit perfectly! The best part is you can buy these shorts at Shopbop for only $94.50.
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.
