Once upon a time ago, I worked at an e-commerce company that specialized in premium denim…(okay that was more like 2007 or so) including Lucky Brand and Agave. I was part of the team that designed and built Agave’s brand new website, and here I am again coming full circle with them again! I am excited to review these next. Agave was nice enough to send me two pairs to choose from…the Delgada skinny in Gemstone Stretch and Manhattan stretch…and I chose Manhattan Stretch! Gemstone had a nice 4-way stretch to it similar to my DL1961s I reviewed not long ago, but were a bit more rigid. The Manhattan Stretch had a much softer, comfortable, buttery feel to them, and the blue has a beautiful broken in look to it. I’ll be wearing these for awhile to see how they mold to my body and the review will be done soon!
When we look for the perfect jean, the perfect fit is a given…but shopping online is often a hassle because it is difficult to judge just how a new jean will fit by gazing at its glitzy photo on your computer screen! Introducing AYR, a women’s line from the same folks who brought you Bonobos, a men’s line that specializes in khakis and understands it’s not only women who despise the saggy butt syndrome. AYR prides themselves on their impeccable comfortable, butt-friendly denim that lifts, tucks, and holds a hint of stretch to form to your body and hold its shape for at least five days in a row. These jeans come in some beautiful washes and also each come in three different inseam lengths to calm your hemming woes. As far as the hassle of guessing your perfect size when shopping online goes, AYR offers great fitting jeans AND customer service! Enjoy free shipping and returns to make your online shopping experience hassle-free!

Time to take a short break from the usual denim obsession and highlight another catwalk staple – the statement dress! Revolve Clothing blessed my inbox this morning with a newsletter featuring a new designer that caught my eye immediately. Check out these dresses from self-portrait! I’m definitely more of a jeans and a tee shirt kind of gal, but of course I like to dress up from time to time…the problem is I’m just so damn picky when it comes to dresses. Having the creative eye that I do, I was immediately smitten by this designer, who obviously found a way to stand out in today’s highly competitive fashion world with unique cuts, textures, and color combinations which somehow, don’t clash at all. In fact, I think I could say, they “clash” beautifully. Take a look and have an eye feast…I’m still hungry!
Surprise surprise! Just got these in from CoH! I had no idea what style they were going to send me, I only knew they were coming! Part of the fun of being a denim reviewer is knowing you’ll be trying on all sorts of styles apart from your normal preferences, so I’m glad I was sent a style I am not used to!
I ended up getting the Hutton wide leg, in Palais Royal!
They sent me a 25, since I told them I’m a 25 in the Kelly Bootcut (I have a 26 in the Ava), so I crossed my fingers that they’d fit…and they do! They are a nice medium rise so they fit over my hips perfectly and I know they’ll stretch and mold over my body with time — the denim is such a nice, soft stretchy material! They are quite long with a 35″ inseam, but I decided I don’t want to hem them because I think the wider leg styles look better on me when I’m wearing heels.
I’m excited to do this review and see how they fit in with my wardrobe! 🙂
My review for DL1961 is up on Denimology! These jeans are incredible…and this shoot was my favorite, I think! The fit is perfect for curvy styles and incorporates a 4-way XFIT stretch technology that helps the jeans keep their shape without stretching out or becoming baggy…FINALLY! It also makes these jeans super soft. I advise every girl who’s tired of the common waistband gap in the back or the dreaded butt sag after just a few wears to check these out! I cannot wait to review more from this brand.

This weekend I DJed at a boutique re-opening party and discovered an awesome new brand from Los Angeles – Evleo! I’m not at all a leggings person unless I’m wearing a tunic, and it’s hard for me to part with my beloved jeans, but these caught my eye immediately. Since I was paid for my gig in clothing (score!), I made a beeline for these! They are a pretty olive green moto style pant with black paneling on the sides. I cannot find an exact pic of them on their site, but here I am, trying them out:
Here is their website! This is definitely a brand I’m keeping on my radar.
My next review for Denimology is done! It is scheduled for the 31st. Here’s a sneak preview! These really were fun jeans to style…I was worried at first since I’m not so into relaxed, cropped jeans. It’s nice to add something so different, and so versatile, to my relatively-basic wardrobe! The wash is so pretty…there’s highlights and dark indigo lowlights, and the mid hues are a beautiful vibrant blue which is said to get even more vibrant over time! I’m not usually a raw denim type of a person (I like my soft stretch!) but these have a thick but soft density to them, and I’m excited to see how it changes over time.
You can find these jeans for purchase here.

It’s always exciting when a new brand comes out! Introducing McGuire jeans, which has already hit the celebrity world by storm. Word is that they are so in demand already that they are all backed up in production! I don’t yet know much about them, but I’m keeping my eyes out…can’t wait to try a pair!
There’s a few of them that can currently be purchased here.
This morning I stepped out for my run and found a nice surprise on my doorstep…my second jeans for review: The DL1961 Grace in Moscow!
These jeans are incredible! DL1961 is known for it revolutionary 4-Way X-Fit stretch that conforms to your body shape without stretching out or sagging over time. The rise is slightly higher too so they fit over my more athletic body shape. It almost feels like I could have sized down one but I think it’s only because these are so SOFT and stretchy that it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing jeans! I can’t wait to wear these out for awhile and get my Denimology review done for the brand…I can’t thank them enough.
These can be purchased here.
