Victoria Beckham took her children to Xtreme Martial Arts World Headquarters on the weekend in North Hollywood, California, to celebrate her son Cruz’s 5th birthday. She wore a pair of denim legging jeans with ankle zips from her own collection, Victoria Beckham Denim. I love how the ankle zips on her jeans are on the inside seam instead of the outside seam. It’s nice to see Victoria wearing her own line as well, she’s doing a much better job promoting these than her DvB line a while back. I’m really liking her designs in her collection but not so much the price tag.

I designed a pair of jeans for Prima Jeans! They asked me to design a pair just for myself and I had so much fun doing it! I picked the denim, the wash, the thread, the buttons, the rivets, the zips, the pocket lining, absolutely everything! I even adjusted the cut to fit my measurements more correctly.
I went for a girly jean as I am a girly girl who loves pink and purple, so I chose purple stitching for the main thread and shades of pink and purple for the signature pocket design. I picked long ankle zips as I love ankle zips and I added a cute denim bow above them to make them more girly. I also chose a button with a purple crystal in the middle and the rivets have a clear crystal in the middle. The wash of the denim is a beautiful dark denim which I love, it gives the jeans a more classic look. The pocket lining is pink and red with hearts and love written on it, I chose this design because it’s really pretty and it represents everyday life.
I designed these jeans about 5 months ago (September 2009) and adjusted little things here and there while they were in the process of being made. I had such an amazing time doing them and I absolutely love them! They fit perfectly and I can’t thank Prima Jeans enough for this!
I have been wondering what the lovely DenimBlog readers thought about these jeans? I know everyone on here has different denim tastes and the amount of girlyness in this pair of jeans is not going to appeal to everyone. I am 21 myself so I am hoping the younger readers might like them. I would love your opinions! I hope you like them as much as I do! I have always loved to design since I was little and to finally have it come true is wonderful. I included loads of photos of the details, close up angles and modeled photos as well for you to get a good idea how they look worn and laid out as well.

Alexa Chung attended the House of Holland – My Beautiful Fashion show held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in Victoria House in London, England. She was among the front row with Pixie Geldof. Alexa wore a really baggy boyfriend shirt made out of a lght wash denim with a pair of darker denim leggings. I have never understood the whole socks in heels look but I actually think it looks really good on Alexa, she has that edgy/quirky charm and style to pull it off well.
