HonestForum has been working hard to make improvements to HonestMall.com – a site which allows you to post your authentic designer denim and other designer items for sale. Unlike Ebay, HonestMall only charges a one-time upfront fee of $9.95 in order to sell in the mall. The HonestMall is monitored by a group of denim experts who can spot a fake a mile away, and has had over 10,000 transactions take place with 99.98% authenticity. HonestForum is the largest online community dedicated to authentic premium denim, and now they are giving frustrated Ebayers who are sick of constant fee increases an alternative place to sell their designer denim. Other new features of the mall include:
- The ability to leave comments on mall items
- The ability to watermark your photos and send your HonestMall listings to Ebay
- Access the HonestMall from your iPhone
Now we at the HonestForum are offering an opportunity for our readers to help us promote the new HonestMall.

Rather than wondering, “Do I look fat in these jeans?” why not “be comfortable in your genes”? That’s the message of the 20th annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, which runs through Saturday. The group encourages men and women to cultivate a healthy body and body image.
As part of the effort, Paige Premium Denim is selling denim and silver bracelets engraved with the “Be Comfortable in Your Genes” message, available for $25 at EmbraceYourGenes.org. All proceeds go to the National Eating Disorders Association.
True Jeans, an online jeans store, is offering a 20% discount for orders over $100 through March 31. Just enter MYGENES in the promotion code at checkout. True Jeans will donate $20 to the National Eating Disorders Association for every order.
Our question: Paige Premium Denim has recently begun carrying up to size 34 in jeans for women, about the equivalent of a size 14/16 dress size. Do you think Paige offering jeans in bigger sizes is healthy for women’s body images, or is encouraging women to embrace being a size 14/16 a health risk because that’s typically considered to be overweight? Are we embracing the fact that America is getting heavier, or are we still too obsessed with being model thin and thus encouraging eating disorders?
Victoria Beckham attends a preview of the dVb Collection at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street yesterday in Toronto, Canada. She showed off her Victoria Beckham denim and eyewear collections and signed autographs for fans. Can she just once, ONCE, smile? In the last photo, there’s a bit of a smirk, but just once it would be great to see a big toothy grin out of Posh.
Ashlee Simpson taped TRL yesterday to promote her new single in an ’80s-inspired black and white mix of J Brand 944 jeans in Jett wash, and Anne Demeulemeester vest with neon orange Marc by Marc Jacobs heels. What do you think of her look?
