Taryn Manning was spotted spinning some tunes at the US launch of the new Lotus. She was wearing the Rock & Republic Cage denim fitted blazer in Screamer White. There is something about this jacket that I find appealing. It is dressy with the lapel but has an edge with the fit. The only thing that I wish though is that it was more fitting on Taryn. She is a tiny girl so I understand it being a little big.
Have you readers heard some of Taryn’s songs with her band Boomkat? Their music actually is not that bad. I never would have thought that she had a voice like that. They were also featured in The Italian Job. Click here to purchase this jacket from the R&R website for $139.
Justin Bieber posed for photos with his new book ‘First Step 2 Forever’ at Barnes & Noble in New York City a few days ago. I am beginning to wonder if Justin is sponsored by G Star because we always seem to see him in the brand, he doesn’t really wear anything else. This time he was wearing one of their short sleeve denim shirts with dark jeans.
Have any of you younger readers/Justin fans bought his book or do you intend to? I personally think 16 is a little young to be writing an autobiography but maybe a lot has happened in his life and I know his girl fans would definitely want to know as much about him as possible. I saw him accepting his last award at the AMA’s 2010 and he invited Usher on the stage to share it with him, I thought that was very kind of him.

This weeks review is on J Brand’s new Agnes fit in the Vintage Navy Twill wash. I took a size down in these from my Houlihan in Vintage Olive size because I think the Agnes is better suited to being worn tighter than loose like the cargos. They do run the same as the Houlihan’s in Vintage Olive though so the sizing is pretty consistent.
I couldn’t work out if I liked these more than the Houlihan’s or not, I think I may like them equally but there is something about these Agnes that just make them so different and likable. I love the zippers on the lap area and the extra long zippers at the ankles, so combining those with the moto style stitching around the knee area, really makes these something special! The other thing that makes me slightly more partial to the Agnes over the Houlihan is the back pockets, these actually have pockets on the back where as the Houlihan just have flaps.
I find these to be a lot more skinny than the Houlihan though, but then that may be because I took a size down. They just feel skinnier in the calf area and at the ankles. The Twill fabric is amazing! It’s so soft and so stretchy, it’s one of my favourite fabrics around at the moment and the washes that J Brand have been bringing this Agnes cut out in are beautiful! I adore the Stealth wash but the Vintage Navy is definitely a lot more practical and wearable for every day errands.
I think, just like the Houlihan took the world by storm last season, the Agnes is definitely the cut to watch out for! We have already seen it on a lot of celebs but I can see it popping up a lot more now they have released it in many washes. I would absolutely recommend this cut to you if you haven’t yet tried it, if you are a fan of the Houlihan then you will adore these! I find it’s always nice to make a change in what you wear sometimes, as much as we love denim here at DenimBlog, it is nice to have a break and wear a different style and fabric from a denim brand every now and then.
