Amanda Seyfried was seen walking her gorgeous dog Finn in Los Angeles, California last week with a friend. Amanda also stopped to get some lunch before heading out for the day. I love the way the sun is shining on Finn’s fur, it makes him look golden! He’s adorable!
Amanda was wearing a pair of J Brand 1043 cuffed shorts in Mako with flip flops and a AG Muscle Tee in Army Green with some sunglasses. I adore those shorts! I love the distressing. I’m still awaiting the day I can go out in shorts and sandals, it’s still too cold here unfortunately. You can buy J Brand shorts at Singer22.com.

Here is the first video in a video series from Silver Jeans Co. for their Spring 2011 campaigns. This first video features a group of young people going on a road trip and then changing a tyre. I’m very intrigued to see the next one! I love watching denim campaign videos!
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.
