This weeks review is on a brand I had never tried before, until now. G Star sent me the Fender Skinny Spark Denim jeans in 3D Aged. I never really thought I would like the brand because they are quite heavily branded and I prefer my jeans more subtle and plain, but I was definitely suprised with how well they fitted and how nice the wash was.
The fit of these jeans is a very skinny, low/normal rised jean with a thicker waistband. The back pockets have zippers with tassels at the top, just like I am used to with some Diesel jeans and other brands, and they are not too skinny like most of the leggings I wear. I always like the look of zippers on the back pockets because I find they accentuate the butt more and highlight the right areas to be flattering. This pair definitely does that! The back pockets also have the classic G-Star embroidery and they have the little G-Star patches and branding on the sides at the front. I normally always wear longer t-shirts so that isn’t too much of a bother to me.
I do like the fit of these too, I definitely find them slimming and a good fit on the butt and legs. It’s always risky for me trying new brands because the cut can often be too big in my legs, but these fit perfectly. I took a size 27 as I seem to be fitting that size more now and they fit just right. Since I have never tried the brand before though, I am unsure if they are true to size for them. They definitely seem quite true to size, maybe a small bit on the big side in comparison to other denim brands though.
The wash of these jeans is called 3D Aged and it’s a coated/waxed very dark blue, almost black shade on a fabric called Spark Denim. I’m assuming it’s named Spark Denim because it’s coated to look shiny. I have been into waxed and leather look denim for a long time now so I was excited to put this pair on because I loved the look of the wash. I also find really dark blues and blacks to be the most slimming shades of denim anyway, so adding a coated look to this pair just makes them more fun and more in depth. They are not the regular plain washed jeans you normally see. I definitely love this wash, it’s also not itchy like most waxed jeans can be, it’s made with cotton, polymide and elastane and it’s a 3×1 right hand twill 11 oz fabric which has been ring spun.
Overall, if you are a fan of the brand then I think this is a must have pair for you because they seem like a classic with great characteristics. If you are new to the brand like I was, then I also think this is a good pair to try, I’m really pleased I got these because of how pretty they are and they are very versatile and easy to pair with other clothes. I’m happy to finally add a pair of G-Star jeans to my ever growing collection! Buy them here at I Love Bastille for $220.
Kim Kardashian was seen packing her car in her driveway before going off to run some errands for the day. Kim was wearing a pair of DL1961 Premium Denim Emma skinny jeans in Onyx wash with heels, a black blazer and a knitted cream sweater.
DL1961 are sort of the perfect fit for Kim and her curves because they are made with revolutionary 4-way stretch technology fabric that adapts to your unique body shape to give custom fit and comfort. I love that about the brand! Not to mention Kim looks amazing in them! Buy DL1961 here online.

Rachel Bilson was spotted paying her parking meter and then making her way to have lunch with some friends in Los Angeles, California yesterday. It definitely seems like it’s hot in LA right now! We are seeing so many celebs pulling out their shorts and dresses at the moment.
Rachel was wearing a pair of boyfriend shorts from Paige Premium. She paired them with ankle boots and a long sleeved white tee with sunglasses. I think this outfit suits Rachel perfectly, I love the style of it and I also think it’s really good that she shows how much of a normal taste in denim she has by sticking to her favourite brands all of the time. I know I do the same, I always have my go to brands and brands that I trust the most. Paige Premium is one of them! I would love to see Rachel in one of the braided styles like the Lou Lou or the Silverlake shorts. They are my favourites of this season! Buy Paige shorts at Paige online.

Charlie Sheen’s ex girlfriend, Brooke Mueller, took their twins Max and Bob shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles, California a few days ago. Brooke was wearing a pair of Rich & Skinny Legacy Leggings in Rinse wash with boots, a printed tee and a jacket. I can’t say I am a big fan of this look but I do love the Rich & Skinny leggings.
Rich & Skinny make such amazing jeans! I find the brand fits me really well and they have some very unique styles that I adore. My favourite has to be the skinny denim cargos, I’ve been wearing those everywhere and I can’t get enough of them. You can read my review on them here and you can buy Rich & Skinny jeans on their website here.
