Sorry I didn’t get chance to do a denim review last week! I try to do one every week for you readers but sometimes it’s not possible, I also haven’t included laid down images of the shorts either, just modeled photos. This weeks review is on the Raven Denim cut off boyfriend shorts in Spirit wash. Halle Berry has also been spotted in these shorts in a different wash!
I got these shorts a little while ago (not knowing what to expect as I have never tried Raven Denim before) and I was very suprised! The fit is really good! I wasn’t expecting them to fit as nice as they do as I am always apprehensive about trying new brands as I tend to stick to what works for me and what I like. The pocket placement on these is in the perfect place! It’s always so important to get the pockets in the correct place on the butt as it makes such a different to how jeans fit you. I also love that you can see the pocket lining under the hem of the shorts, I always think that’s cute!
I don’t like jeans or shorts that are really branded so I am pleased with the Raven Denim logo just being a little R on the top right of the right back pocket. It’s unique and you can tell they are Raven Denim when you see this logo but it’s not invasive. Two things I would like to alter if possible, to fit my body and likes more, is the leg opening and the shade of the wash. The leg opening I find a little too big and a little too heavy, I would feel better in these shorts if the denim was a little thinner around the hem as it can get a little puffy. The wash also is a little too light for my taste, it’s a pretty wash but I would love it even more if it was a couple of shades darker or some distressing was put on this wash at the front instead, that would make them perfect!
I actually really like these shorts and I am very impressed with Raven Denim. Since I hadn’t tried them before I am really pleased with how well they fit! They are very flattering and so cute! I hope we see a lot more celebs in these shorts and jeans from the brand too! Buy these shorts at National Jean Company for $153.

Victoria Justice attends the LXD after party at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California wearing J Brand Oz Wash jeans. We haven’t seen these jeans on a celeb in a while now. Seems like we are moving out of the tie dye stage and more into the cargo skinny trend instead. I still like the tie dye stuff though!
Victoria is the star of the new show “Victorious” on Nickelodeon; my kids love this show and I think its pretty cute too. Have you ever seen the show? Its about Victoria being the new girl at an Arts school; there is a lot of singing, drama and overall cute teen/tween stuff. She also wears a lot of premium denim on the show too, so that is always something that catches my eye! You can buy these jeans here at Boutique To You.

Cameron Diaz had a helicopter ride in Brazil wearing her Current/Elliott Sun Exposed One Pocket Jeans. Cameron was at the gym over the weekend and then headed off to Rio where she took a ride in the sky. She wore the jeans uncuffed and they look cute like 7/8 jeans.
Cameron looks to be enjoying a bit of down time after all the promotion she did for ‘Knight and Day’. I don’t know if the helicopter ride this morning was a travel necessity or just for pleasure. Have you ever been in one? I’ve been in one twice and they are a great ride! Have you had a chance to see ‘Knight and Day’ yet? What did you think? You can buy these jeans here.
