Denim Dreams

They do come true.

Marques’ Almeida is set to release a collection with Topshop come October 9th. (Please take a moment to add it to your calendar. You good? Okay.) It’s 68 pieces (!!!) and the frayed denim looks are everything you ever hoped for. I’ve been a fan since I spotted Felicity in one of their dresses. I like that they’re taking something basic (denim) and added a cool twist to it.

For now, I’ve got my eye on that denim parka…

See by Chloe knows what I’m talking about.

The sweet daisy printed denim pieces have me wanting to do denim on denim only come Spring.

And if the Canadian tuxedo isn’t quite your thing, the pieces work great on their own too.

Peace, love and daisies.

Let the NYFW outfits continue! Day 4. Feeling a little more casual, so I paired this amazing Azede Jean Pierre leather top with my favorite boyfriend jeans. These just get better with wear and wash! Again, this is a super easy look for almost anyone to accomplish. I really love the contrast. The leather top is highly intricate–Azede told me that she fashioned it after the exoskeleton of a beetle; the jeans, simple. Together it’s a subtle outfit that packs a punch. Just how I like it!

double denim blues

thpshopanyajeansboundcuffsvanessahong2

What I love about being in the tropics is the necessity to bare skin. I love the look of super washed out denim and when multiplied by two, even better. Here I styled my favorite ripped jeans from THPSHOP.co with a bleached out BF shirt from the Gap. And of course, my always-hardware the Bound Cuffs.

Spring!

The hint of sun this week has me wanting to wear lighter layers and show just a little leg.

Wouldn’t these pieces be great for the start of Spring?

Double Blues

allbluedenimoutfit1 allbluedenimoutfit2 allbluedenimoutfit4 allbluedenimoutfit3

Hurrah for double blues. And before we jump to conclusions, allow me to clarify that this doesn’t qualify as a  ‘Canadian tuxedo’ (the blazer is Chambray not denim). Tomato, to-mah-toe. But I digress. Now nestled back in the west coast I’m grabbing for those all too familiar sunny-ssentials including a super light pair of distressed denim and anything nude. CUE SUMMER.

Ramya

Every time I run into Ramya, she’s always wearing something cool. Like definition of cool, cool. She has a great way of mixing pieces with quirky details, which makes her style really fun.

Ramya Giangola Street Style Photo

I love the little fringe detail on her jeans and the tiny pom-poms on her jacket!

Le Jean

What do you think about the jeans in this photo?

Could be better, right? Even so, I love this outfit. The cape, the shirt, even the color and fit of the jeans (skinny but a little slouchy – there’s an art to it) – the whole ensemble totally inspires me. But when you take a closer look, don’t you think the zipper is a little too short? Isn’t the stone wash a little too exaggerated? Isn’t the double pocket detail a bit too much?

Am I going too far? You tell me.

Anyway, you’ve probably figured out by now, I’m a little crazy when it comes to jeans. And I’m the one who used to love buying jeans at Zara, closing my eyes to any of the little details that I was not crazy about. But I ended up getting tired of the pockets being too small, the slightly dubious inscriptions, and the weird mustache lines (you know – the faded creases right at crotch level!).

But even so, I never became a purist. The 501 jean material, for example, is way too thick for me. I like thin and stretchy jeans – not pure at all ;)

So white jeans are usually my fall back (it’s hard to mess up the color). I like MiH, Mother, Current Elliott, etc. And I don’t wear blue jeans. But actually, with spring arriving, I kind of feel like expanding my jean options…

What do you think? What are you like when it comes to jeans – super purist or are you more relaxed about them? Do you have any tips for me?

Denim on Denim

I loved Cassie’s denim on denim look so much I’m thinking about re-creating it for myself this weekend.

Here’s some cool ideas, more on my Pinterest!

Denim & Denim

Why is it the simple things that seem to be so hard? Bed head locks, a smudged smokey eye… and denin on denim. I see it everywhere (most recently at J.Crew this season) and it’s something that works all the time (no snow or sleet can stop it) but it’s not always easy to get it right.

There have been maybe a few times that my denim mix has looked a little more farmer than fashion editor and it all comes down to perfecting the mix.

So, what’s a girl to do?

- If you’re feeling like you are on denim overload, add a non-denim layer, like a leather vest or jacket.
- To kick the farmer feeling, go for a pair of heels (the ones here are Gianvito Rossi).
- Layer it on. Here we have overalls, a denim shirt and a denim vest. The more denim, the merrier.
- Try a total look and do all the same color denim (if you’re feeling a little less bold, mix dark and light).

It’s an art really. Have you mastered it?

PS: Check out more denim on denim on my Pinterest today!

A.P.C. Butler Program

APC1WebSo I finally broke down and bought a pair of jeans from the A.P.C. Butler program.  I’ve tried buying faux-aged, faux-washed, faux-faded, faux-whiskered(?) jeans in the past, but they never seem right.  I’d rather wear jeans that someone else broke-in (hopefully not commando style) than a manufactured version.

Three things I love about this look:

1. The tough Zara boots (yes, Zara!).
2. The socks peeking out.
3. The wide cuff on the jeans– super cool!

What about you?

Model Crush: Emma Leth

This photo first sparked our Studio crush on model Emma Leth…

And then we started to see her on the Zara site (we were always asking each other, who is that girl?!) and most recently we spotted her in the Sophie Bille Brahe lookbook and it made our crush official. According to my Google stalking, she is also an actress and DJ, which is a pretty lethal combination of cool.

We are crushin’ hard over here.

It’s Britney B@$#%

Last week we asked if you wanted a post on Britney, the comeback kid (who came back and back again)

So, here you have it! In the vein of our bellybutton ring post (yep, that happened) here is a brief history of the Britney Comeback:

High Point (1998-2002): All is well. Britney Spears dances into our hearts with “Hit Me Baby,” and manages to snag Justin Timberlake. The two wear matching denim outfits and Britney gives a number of awesome VMA performances. What could go wrong?

britney spears and justin timberlake jean photo

Low Point (2002): The denim duo break up. The world mourns. Justin’s “Cry Me A River” music video stars a Britney look-a-like who cheats on him — everyone is on Team Justin!

Comeback (2003): Remember a little song called “Toxic”? Yeah, we need Britney in our lives again.

High Point (2003): Britney and Madonna kiss on stage at the VMAs. Our minds are blown and Christina Aguilera is pissed!

britney and madonna kissing photo

Low Point (2004-2007): Let’s call this the “Chaotic Phase”. Britney’s shotgun Vegas wedding and annulment followed by her marriage to Kevin Federline leave fans less than happy with the pop star. A few Frappuccinos and barefoot gas station stops later, Britney finally comes out with a new album! We are excited until… The VMAs. SRSLY how did it go this far??!!! And how do we turn off our eyes?!!

Comeback (2008): Britney slowly reappears in the world and then: “Womanizer”. Need we say more? (okay we’re going to say one more thing)

High Point (2011): Britney is hired to be a judge on The X Factor. Meaning that millions of viewers trust her opinion of singing!! (Hello? Anyone?)

All this and her new single came out yesterday. You tell us, high point or low point?

You Voted!

So on Friday, you voted… Tomboy !!!
Here are a few notes on the debate, thank you for participating, it was really nice (and interesting) to read :)

#1 – Some of you found that the high waisted version and the cheek-peep (I made up that one) was vulgar. Some others found it anti-hygienic.
I think that, as a few of you said, this way to wear the shorts is fresh and sexy – everybody was doing it in the 70′s, it’s just cute!
The only thing is to wear it with flats…
About hygiene, I agree that I wouldn’t feel great wearing them in NYC with the taxis and stuff… But on holiday, oh yeah !!!

#2 – I’d wear the tomboy, as you know me, but I actually really love it both ways.

#3 – Some of you found that the model was too skinny on the left side (wearing the tomboy shorts)… But it’s the same model, the same pants, and not retouched! It’s only that worn without a belt, the shorts fall very low (almost to the knees), a place where leg gets skinnier… It shows how different the perception is (wearing it the tomboy way definitely makes you look skinnier), which I find super interesting.

There you go darlings!!! Big kiss!

This Or That

The other day on a shooting, we played with the model’s jean shorts. They’re the same in both pictures.
On the left, very low on her waist for a tomboy look, and on the right, with a belt, super high and extra sexy.

What’s your favorite way ?
