I esp love the 2 pairs from Levi’s! GAH.

I’ve managed to accumulate a great number of pairs over the years and I plan to add more. This is one piece of clothing that will never go out of fashion for me. I’m constantly working on looks with jeans playing an important part. I love how I can pull off outfits that still can be called fashionable without it ending up looking too calculated.

What sort of cut is your favourite? Any brand in particular that you favour over the rest?

Protect Your Assets: Recession Denim

Now, if my legs will turn out looking like this then I’ll certainly be off to Bloomingdales in an instant. If I live near one, that is.

Tuxedo Jeans, Recession Denim | Tops II Bottoms - Fashion, Shopping, Street Style

Legs that go on forever. I think I’ve successfully made my point, image size plus placement and all. (Funny memory of an opening gambit recently used on me by some guy — a comment on my legs. Quick answer: I don’t think so, buddy. Heh. Pick-up fail.)

Anyway, Recession Denim launched its premier collection in the US in April 2009.

The collection features well-made, classic jean silhouettes that will never go out of style. The entire collection ranges in price from $85-$120, which is well below the current price for high-fashion denim.

Now available at over 50 top boutiques in the US and internationally, Recession Denim will be launching its fashion-forward second collection this Fall. Taking cues from Fall 2009 runway trends, the new collection features Motorcycle jeans, denim leggings, and the Gypsy line, which includes denim dresses and skirts.

Recession Denim will be hitting the floors of Bloomingdales next week and over 60 stores across the US.

Oddly enough, it’s been reported that Recession Denim is a denim company that seems to be doing extremely well in the present state of the economy. What irony.

Happy shopping, folks!

Cardis for Fall

There’s something peaceful about outfits + cardis. They appear casual but maintain a quiet elegance. I like the idea of wearing cardis. Streets out west will be littered with stylish folks in cardis come Fall.

Here are a few of my favourites seen at Ralph Lauren.

I heart this Nomad Leather Bag by Beryll

Nomad Leather Bag, Bohemian Luxury - Beryll | Tops 2 Bottoms - Fashion, Shopping, Street Style

Not much of a bag person but if presented with something like this one, I’ll definitely make an exception. I don’t normally shop around for bags, however, there are certain types that capture my fancy. This Nomad Leather Bag from +Beryll definitely fits the bill. It’s a gorgeous looking carry-all. Very hip and laid-back. Something really suitable to my personal style, I must say.

+Beryll’s luxurious handbags are unique and numbered with brass and silver accessories and button-snap closures.

The Nomad Leather Bag is made of Brown natural distressed cow leather. Numbered limited edition. Handcrafted in the USA.
