Gavin Rossdale and his wife Gwen Stefani and their two sons spent Mother’s Day in a Primrose Hill park in London, England. Gavin looked to be having a really fun time as he played games with Zuma.
Gavin was of course wearing one of his favourite brands, AG Adriano Goldschmied. He paired them with a checked shirt and a pair of shoes that resemble a banana in my opinion, ha ha. The whole outfit works though and the shoes actually give it that pop of colour it needs. Buy men’s AG Jeans at Singer22.com.

Gwen Stefani and her son Kingston were spotted out and about on a sunny day in Primrose Hill in London, England. I had no idea that Gwen was over here in England, I wonder what she is here for?
She was wearing a pair of the Paige Premium Layne Cargo pants in Black which she tucked into boots. As much as I love Gwen’s usual style, this is definitely not one of my favourite looks of hers. I adore the Layne cargo pants though, I have a pair of the Curson cargos myself and they are gorgeous! Buy these pants at Paige Online for $169.

So many celebrities seem to be loving Isabel Marant right now! Sienna Miller is the latest to be seen rocking the Isabel Marant Leal denim dress from 2 seasons ago as she was leaving the Royal Haymarket theatre in Los Angeles, California.
The last time we spotted this dress on a celebrity was Jessica Alba, almost a year ago, back in June 2010. It’s nice to see another celeb wearing this creation because I think it’s beautiful. I love the way it fits like a smock but the embroidery around the neck line really makes it unique. Unfortunately this dress is no longer available to buy as it’s from a long time ago.

I thought I would do something a little different in what I share with you and customize a pair of Levi’s. I often customize my denim by ripping, shredding, patching, hemming, studding, paint splattering etc because I love to make jeans more my own.
This time I took a pair of higher rise Levi’s jeggings that I had and chopped the legs off to make them into shorts. It’s best to cut one leg first after measuring where you want them and then fold them in half and cut the other leg against the already chopped one to make sure they are the same. Since these were completely plain (see the first gallery image) I decided to make them a little more edgy and distress them. I took a small holed cheese grater and something hard to put inside the leg and then grated the denim really hard where I wanted the distressing. It does take a while to get the destruction as you want it. I also made abrasions on the zipper area, the pockets, the back pockets and around the waist band.
After I had finished doing all of that I soaked them in water to get all of the dust and fabric bits off and then I left them in the sun to dry for a while to fade the denim a bit. I then chucked them in the tumble dryer to roughen them up a little bit more. Finally I frayed the edges of the new hem with scissors. It’s really easy and simple to make your own shorts this way, it just takes a lot of patience to get the end result. I do prefer to customize and make my own denim shorts to actually buying new ones. How many of you do the same thing?
