So I thought for this weeks review, I would do something a little different and try a cut that I have never tried before. Levi’s sent these to me and I didn’t think I would like them at first as I haven’t really been a fan of the boyfriend skinny jeans but I was wrong! I have worn them about 6 times already and considering the amount of jeans I own, that’s a lot of times for me to wear a pair of jeans! Haha.
The fit of these jeans was something that surprised me actually, I always thought boyfriend skinny jeans would be really unflattering and more like carrot pants which I am definitely not a fan of, well at least I don’t think I am, I’ve never tried them but I imagine they would make my short legs even shorter. These Levi’s jeans are very roomy in the crotch area and the butt area which makes them incredibly comfy and easy to move in. That’s why I love them most for just running errands and going somewhere that I need comfort. They are also not too tight at the ankles which can make them look strangely out of proportion. The way these are cut is great and I am pretty sure, if I wanted to try this trend, I couldn’t have tried a better pair. This is also my first time trying Levi’s so I was quite happy to know I like them.
The wash is a very light medium wash, it’s got some very nice whiskering across the lap area and it’s got distressing patches on one of the knees, it definitely looks quite authentic, like an older pair of vintage Levi’s which have faded over the years. The denim is also very comfy! Since these are a sample I can’t actually tell you what they are made from as they have no tags, however they do feel stretchy and like a pure cotton denim so I would assume they have about 2% stretch to them and 98% cotton.
Speaking of Levi’s though, hopefully I am going to find a Curve ID jean that fits me! I tried the Demi curve and it was just a little too big in the legs and the Bold curve was no good at all as I don’t have that type of body shape. I haven’t tried the Slight curve but I know that one will be the one for me. I took the test on the Levi’s site and it matched me with that cut too so I can’t wait to review a pair of those for you!

Ashley Greene was all smiles as she headed back to her hotel after venturing around Paris, France a couple of weeks ago. Ashley was in Paris filming scenes for her new movie LOL with her co star Miley Cyrus. It looks like she stopped to take some photos with her fans and sign a couple of autographs. I always think it’s nice when celebs make time for their fans. After all, the fans are the people that get them where they want to be.
Ashley was wearing her favourite denim shorts of the moment, J Brand cuffed boyfriend shorts in Goldrush. She has worn these shorts so many times now! I love them though, I still miss not having mine, even though they were too big. What do you think of Ashley’s outfit here? I love the waterfall style vest, it’s very cute! Buy J Brand at Singer22 and Boutique To You.
I am seriously loving the waxed denim / faux leather look denim! The latest celebrity to be caught rocking the trend is Elle MacPherson. She was see by the paps at the Julien Macdonald Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show for London Fashion Week in London, England. I’m liking her all black look here!
Elle’s jeans are a pair of skinny leather look jeans from Sass & Bide which she paired with ankle boots, a leather biker jacket and and a black top. I like that she added just a hint of colour with a silver belt. I have to say, Elle is my favourite UK celebrity to blog about, her style is always so different and she really knows how to put an outfit together. Not to mention her taste in denim, she has some of the hottest jeans out there!

Gwen Stefani arrived in New York City to prepare for Fashion Week. She was headed to her Manhattan offices to prep for her L.A.M.B. Spring/Summer 2011 Show. I think that Gwen’s L.A.M.B line and Justin Timberlake’s William Rast are the only two celebrity clothing lines that are actually shown during fashion week.
Gwen wore a black silk caftan style shirt and blue washed jeans. Gwen’s jeans are from L.A.M.B.’s new collection and actually were the second look of the show! Her show featured tribal inspired prints and patterns, many in various blue colors. The pictures from the show make these look so much bluer. I really like them!
