Heidi Klum makes her way through the airport after landing at LAX. Recently, it is reported that Heidi purchased a new home in Brentwood, CA for $14 million dollars. I know that she was filming a reality show following her kids but I wonder if it ever aired? They seem like such a cute family, they’d be fun to watch!
Heidi’s airport outfit consisted of a pair of embellished Ugg boots, an off the shoulder black tee and a pair of skinny jeans. She’s wearing PRPS’s Heirloom Carrot Fit Repair jeans in medium vintage. These jeans have part of the Bill of Rights written on them! You can buy them at Shopbop for $219.00.
There appears to be a new use for your old jeans, in cars! Ford will be using recycled denim material in their latest version of the Ford Focus. According to Forbes magazine, “Each new Ford Focus will have roughly two pairs of average-sized American jeans in it. The recycled blue jeans will be used as both sound absorption material and carpet backing.”
The reliance on recycled materials has been increasing and Ford is already using recycled materials for the seats and other parts of their cars. Carrie Majeske, the company’s sustainability manager commented that “Ford is continually looking for greener alternatives.”
I think it’s great that an increasing number of denim companies and other companies as well are trying to become more eco-friendly and rely on recycled products. I wonder where else old jeans are going to pop up!

Go and grab yourself some James Jeans bargains!
Jennifer Garner wore a pair of J Brand “Bailey” boot leg jeans in Phoebe while taking her daughters to a Farmer’s Market. I normally like vintage or somewhat geeky looking glasses on most celebs, but I think that Jennifer’s frames are a just a tad bit too thick. I also normally like J Brand jeans but these seem to be a bit slouchy in the crotch area for Jennifer when they aren’t supposed to have that slouchy fit. Maybe I’m just being too picky! Ha! Overall I think she looks cute, but when I look at the details I guess that is what I see…
I was curious about the rise, but it just says “perfect rise” on the J Brand website for these. I’m guessing they are mid-rise and they slouched down on Jennifer. I have a few pairs of mid-rise jeans that seem to do this to me too. I’m kind of an all or nothing girl, I need either a really high rise or a really low rise, if it hits my middle it seems to want to either slide down and give me slouchy crotch or I’ll have to pull them up really high to keep them up…I do like the wash though and they sure look nice on the J Brand model. You can buy these jeans here at J Brand for $189.
