Gee, Judith Marches Into My Heart

7 Feb

Americasmart apparel market in Atlanta was an overwhelming and inspiring experience to say the very least.  Beija-Flor had an excellent showing as we introduced the world to the wonders of our new POD jeans …gotta love the Pull-On-Denim!

I was mesmerized by the eclectic assortment of fashions to be found around every corner.  From leather corsets to boho blouses, the market had every style covered.  I was pleased to notice that many booths featured flowy tiered tops.

One such booth really caught my eye with their soft and whimsical pieces.  It was that of Judith March – a stunning young contemporary collection by Stephanie Nichols that is truly a breath of fresh air with elegant yet delicate touches.  The look is vintage, yet timeless.  I am certainly going to look out for the Judith March fashions in the future.  This brand is on the rise.

Gee, Beija-Flor Brings Jean Joy

29 Nov

Last week, I was lucky enough to be in Greenville for the Beija-Flor jeans warehouse sale.  The tiny space off of Augusta was filled with hundreds of pairs of gorgeous denim masterpieces.  It was heavenly.  The fabric is soft and breathable, and the cuts are flattering.  The majority of the sale jeans were flare styles, but they design all styles and cuts.  They even make my absolute favorite style – the jegging!  I had some trouble finding a good pair of flares for my body (they fit in the waist and fell baggy around my legs), but I stumbled upon a cozy pair of bootcut jeans that had a smooth and comfortable fit.

I got my pair for an incredible $20…and absolute steal!  When I slide them on, I can tell that these Brazilian beauties will be a staple item in my closet for a good while.  I hope that once I get out of college and get a real job (fingers crossed), I can indulge in another pair or two to round out my closet.  I can’t wait to see the popularity of this quality brand grow in the years to come!

Gee, Levi’s Curve ID Gets The Fit

18 Sep

As I blissfully flipped through the October issue of Elle today, I was captivated by the edgy new Levi’s Curve ID advertisement.  I’ll admit, it was the bold headline that drew me in first: “All Asses Were Not Created Equal.”  I couldn’t help but nod in agreement.  My butt just doesn’t look good in the pair that my best friend wears religiously.  Finding a decent pair of jeans has become a daunting task in the beautiful process of shopping for clothes.

Intrigued by the concept, I investigated the Levi’s campaign a little bit more.  I found this insightful Youtube video about the artistic intellect involved in this quest to create a pair for every booty…and I think it’s brilliant.  It’s a smart move for Levi’s to take customers behind the scenes and show them just how much thought and care goes into making jeans that fit YOU.

Levi’s even hosted promotional events in New York and San Francisco in which girls could bring old jeans that didn’t fit to go to Goodwill, and get a new pair of Curve ID jeans in return.  Did I mention that She & Him performed at the San Francisco shindig on September 17th?  Yeah.  Zooey Deschanel + jeans that fit = heaven.

Gee, I’m In Love With UO Jeggings

30 Jul

That’s right, jeggings.  A few months ago, I purchased my first pair of denim leggings from Urban Outfitters.  They essentially resemble skinny jeans.  “Why not just buy skinny jeans, then?,” you might ask.  Because, I say, jeggings are a whole different level of stylish comfort.

Jeggings

Here are the pluses:

  • No fussy buttons and zippers with these babies.  They have a comfortable elastic waist so you can easily slip the things on and off.
  • The denim material is stretchier and feels much lighter than the rough, thick denim that doesn’t always feel so nice after a long day in skinny jeans.
  • They have cute/handy butt pockets.
  • They look like regular jeans.

Don’t get me wrong, here – jeggings are not meant to be a replacement for jeans entirely.  I still cling to my Joe’s and my Paper Denim & Cloth jeans.  But when paired with a long top, jeggings are absolute perfection that spice up the jean routine.  And since I wear long tops all the time, I am a huge fan and advocate for the jeggings (in case you hadn’t noticed).  Pure genius, I say.

In fact, urbanoutfitters.com just marked them down from $39.00 to $19.99!  It’s like Christmas came early!

Girls, before you roll your eyes or chuckle at the idea, just give it a go.  You, too, might just fall in love.
