Halle Berry gave her Black Orchid jeans a rest for a day out at the Sunset Plaza in Los Angeles, California. She chose to wear her other favorite brand, Work Custom. This time she chose the Mamba Leggera in Asphalt to have a little alone time with boyfriend Olivier Martinez.
I have been a fan of these jeans for quite some time. I always thought that these jeans would be a shade or two lighter, but they are actually pretty dark. I think I may reconsider buying these again. I really like the zipper detail on them, but somehow the faded black wash turned me off a bit. If they were solid black or their Phantom wash, they would look amazing. Click here to purchase these jeans at CoutureCandy for $192.
Mary-Kate Olsen was spotted making her way through LAX Airport to catch a flight out to Seattle. Mary-Kate must have really worn these jeans into a silky feel. She has not been spotted outside of them other than the Textile party. It also looks like a natural tear happened on the right knee.
The weather here has been so weird. It is hot one week then cold the next and rains over the weekends. So Mary-Kate is not confused with the season here with her fur layered over her leather jacket. It has been chilly the past couple days.
This weeks review is on a pair of Levi’s Made & Crafted white skinny jeans. As you know white is always a huge colour for Spring and Summer so I was really excited to review these for Levi’s.
The one thing that I love the most about these jeans is they are not see through. So often I will try a pair of white jeans and I can’t wear them because they are just too see through and I don’t feel confident going out like that. It’s wonderful that these are a much thicker denim so it hides everything. You can barely see the pocket bags at the front and it’s pretty safe to wear any colour underwear you wish with these jeans.
As far as the fit goes, these are very skinny, they feel much skinnier than the classic skinny Levi’s jeans. The Made & Crafted collection has a different feel to the denim and they feel a better quality. They are much more durable and like I said, they are super skinny which is nice since I love my jeans to fit like second skin. Since I am so used to wearing jeggings though, they are a bit more restricting when you walk and sit but that’s because of the thicker denim.
There isn’t much to say about the wash since it’s white but it is a pure bright white, it’s not an off white or more of a cream tone, it’s one of the brighter whites that is the perfect shade. I can see these reflecting the sunlight and heat perfectly.
The back pockets are not the most flattering on myself though, I find them to not be positioned as perfect as they could be for my body type but those of you who read my reviews will know how picky I am with back pocket positioning. It’s the first thing I look for in a jean. I’m not saying they are the worst at all, they fit quite well, just not as well as other brands I have tried, but we all have different body shapes so what works for me might not work for someone else. They do run pretty true to size as well.
Naked & Famous have brought out a brand new jean, Red Weft Selvedge. This is a 14oz dark indigo selvedge jean, with red weft interior which are woven on vintage shuttle looms in Kojima, Japan. These jeans are great for cuffing and rolling to show off the crimson red inside. But as these jeans fade, the red will bleed through. I think that’s going to look really good! Most typical dark indigo denim will fade from blue to white – these will fade from blue to red! How many of you are going to pick up a pair? These jeans are currently sold for $150 at Atrium.
