Designer Jeans reviews
I decided to do this weeks review on the Current/Elliott skinny jeans in Loved Destroyed. I have had these jeans since last summer but I still wear them because they are so comfy and gorgeous! They were so popular among the celebs back in the summer. These jeans run really big though, I had to size down so I definitely recommend sizing down 1 from your normal size if you buy these jeans. They are very soft and quite stretchy. The rips in the knees do get bigger each time you wear them though which I guess is unavoidable as they are on the knees. The top 2 holes have a patch behind them which you can see in the photo. The paint splatters are so cute! They definitely add a good effect to the overall jean. I think these jeans are definitely one of my favourite jeans by Current/Elliott. These actually got me liking the brand, they were my first pair and since then I have loved a lot of the new styles.
I definitely recommend these jeans for a casual look in the summer. Because of the big rips they are not that good for winter as they make your legs really cold. I also think the pocket shape and length suits those more with more of a butt, I don’t think it would be too flattering on the smaller butts. They are a beautiful jean though, so comfortable!
Don’t these jeans just scream Summer to you? This weeks denim review is on AG Adriano Goldschmied Ex-Boyfriend Crop Jeans. These were so popular last summer among the celebs like Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba and so many more. I got these in the summer of last year (2009) and I still love them! AG Jeans have brought out a few new washes for Spring and I predict they will be a huge hit again for the coming months. I absolutely love these jeans! They are very flattering and the fit is perfect. The wash is amazing because it has been perfected over time so it looks really deep and gorgeous. The distressing is done extremely well as well, it looks really professional and like it wont fall apart at any time. What I love about AG Jeans is that each pair is numbered, they only make a certain amount of jeans for each batch so they are all individual and no 2 pairs are the same! That’s what gives them a higher price tag and exclusivity. The good thing about these boyfriend jeans is that the hem is not sewn cuffed so you have the choice of rolling them down to wear them longer or cuffing them to wear them cropped. The only thing I would love to change about these jeans is the material content, they are 100% cotton so they are very rigid. I prefer stretch to my jeans. If you wear them really loose then the material content is not much of a problem but if you like them tighter, they are a little harder to move in. Fabric content aside, these are my favourite boyfriend jeans that I own, I absolutely love them! Now I want to try more of their jeans!
I really love these jeans and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to try the boyfriend fit. They have a gorgeous wash and beautiful distressing. They are very well made and each pair is unique so they are definitely worth the money! Scroll down for close up photos of the jeans, modeled pictures by me and more candids of celebs in these jeans.

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.

This weeks denim review is for the Charley 5.0 Skinny Mini Bow Denim Leggings in Abstract. I bought these leggings from Gilt Groupe when they had their Charley 5.0 sale. I had never tried the brand before buying these so I was wondering how good they really are and if they are flattering at all. When I got them they looked really pretty! I loved the little bow details and I never knew you could change the bows if you want to! The leggings come with interchangeable satin bows in cream and black. They attach with poppers so you just pop them on and off. Make sure you attach them on properly so they don’t fall off, I almost lost one of the bows yesterday when I was out. The leggings themselves are super stretchy and are just like normal leggings, they have no pockets on them at all so they are not like jeans. They are very very skin tight and they cling to your legs as well which I love, I don’t like it when leggings are a bit baggy. They have an inseam of around 33″ so they are perfect for the taller girls as well. They are made from 97% cotton and 3% polyurethane. The only thing I didn’t expect was for them to be made in China, I assumed like most premium denim brands with high price tags they would be made in the USA or Italy etc. This isn’t a problem for me at all, I am just letting you know everything about the leggings. If the rest of Charley 5.0′s leggings and other items are as lovely as these then I will definitely be buying more!
I really love these denim leggings! They are a new and girly way to wear this trend and the bows on the back of the ankles really make them unique, I love that about them! I definitely recommend these leggings, they are super cute with heels or flats, very versatile and very comfy! Buy these leggings in Black at Revolveclothing.
