Halle Berry and a friend were snapped by the paps out shopping for a Christmas tree from a tree lot in Beverly Hills, California. You can’t see from the photos but Halle ended up with a huge tree strapped to the roof of her Lexus SUV. Do you guys opt for real trees or do you go with the plastic ones? I always have the plastic versions.
Halle was wearing a pair of jeans from the new brand Henry & Belle. She chose the Ideal Super Stretch Skinny jeans in Onyx wash. In my opinion, Halle just makes everything look amazing and she has the most beautiful skin, she never seems to age at all. In fact, she looks younger now than she has in the past! Buy these jeans and other Henry & Belle jeans at Henry & Belle.
So this is my debut review! SOLD Design lab offered these to me for a review and I thought to myself that I might as well start doing reviews and hopefully you like this review. I am normally a trouser jean type of person because I have large thighs and many jeans give me leg sausage. They originally were going to send me a pair of their new trousers, but I got these pull on skinnys instead. These skinnys are from their Spring and Summer Look book and they are called Spring Street Skinny in IRS.
The fit of these pull on skinnys is exactly what you would expect from pull on jeans, they are basically like a jegging and super stretchy. They have no zipper just a button closure at the top, pretty much like the same jeans that Lorna reviewed from them here. I’ve had J Brand 901 leggings on Sable and these aren’t quite as stretchy or as soft as those, but I like that about them, they have more of a “jean” type of feeling to them rather than soft pajamas. I wore these on Thanksgiving and they were great because after a HUGE supper I still felt comfortable in them. In fact, I even wore them two days later again, which is rare for me to wear a pair of jeans twice in a week.
The wash is a plain dark blue, which I prefer for skinnys. The darker color looks better on my thighs and the clean wash gives them a dressier look. I was unsure about the back pockets at first because smaller pockets make my behind look even larger. They are placed very well though and I think that helps to even it out a bit. The inseam was nice because they were long enough to stack a little bit if I wanted to wear heels instead of boots, but the material is thin enough so that if you cuffed them and tucked them into boots the extra material would not bother you. They fit SO well under boots too, that is probably one of the main reasons I love to wear them, they are skin tight and boots slide on very smoothly over them.
I’m 5’7″ and normally wear a 31/32 in jeans and I got these in size Large. I’d have to say for skinnys they definitely have me SOLD! You can buy SOLD Design Lab jeans here from Singer22 and here from Revolve.
Jetting off to her next appearance in New York, Kim Kardashian was seen making her way through security at LAX airport. Kim recently debuted the newest addition to her empire, a line of watches! They will bear her initials, back to back Ks surrounded by diamonds. I wonder what she’ll come up with next?
Always the fashionista, Kim looked dressed to the nines. She was wearing a white tee-shirt, blazer and black skinny jeans. Her jeans are J Brand’s Agnes jeans in Stealth. She finished off the look with a pair of booties and her Hermes Birkin. You can buy these jeans at J Brand for $260.00.
We recently caught up with the men’s designer for G-Star, Remco de Nijs. He spoke to us about the best sellers, the different fits the brand has to offer, the inspirations behind the designs and more. Please click this post to read the whole interview and see the different images of jeans from G-Star.
DB: What is it that makes G-Star so unique in comparison to other brands?
We see ourselves as product developers, or product engineers, rather than fashion designers as craftsmanship is prioritized above trend. At G-Star, we are driven by our passion for denim — the richest and truest raw material to work with, authentic in every stage of its lifecycle.
Our denim craftsmanship and strive for innovation are most recognizable in the development of 3D construction techniques. In 1996, we created our first 3D denim: the G-Star Elwood, designed by Pierre Morisset based off the pant of a passing motorcyclist. The latest step in the evolution of 3D denim design comes with the Arc Pant: a highly architectural cut that features a low-crotch and straight-hip with an asymmetric leg that ÔÇÿturns’ around the human legs, thanks to twisted seams/inseams. The G-Star Elwood and Arc Pant are major inspirations for our collection.
