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.
