Joe's Jeans has been getting a lot of mainstream press over its latest offering – a collection of stain repellent white jeans. The line is fittingly called Spotless and utilizes "an innovative wash treatment that repels spills". In other words,... Continue reading

Kutay Saritosun (right) Denim has been the talk of the town this spring. Literally, not a day goes by where I don't see a magazine or blog covering the best denim for spring or the best places to shop for... Continue reading

DL1961 is seriously bringing it. At their showroom I was able to preview slim boyfriend jeans in colors outside of the usual distressed indigo (above). I love the idea of wearing gray boyfriend jeans or maybe even pink. It makes... Continue reading

I'd never heard of Matiere until last week, but this is a mens brand I can totally get behind...for me. I am falling all over myself for those indigo-dyed asymmetrical skirt sweatpants. As I write that out I realize it... Continue reading

I feel so privileged. Seriously, I do, because I got to view the most amazing new accessories brand called Graf & Lantz the other day. Graf & Lantz is one of those brands whose origins are so unique that they... Continue reading

Guess' newly installed Creative Director, Sharleen Ernster, has come out with both guns blazing (pun totally intended). I didn't need prompting to see that there was an entirely different look in womens apparel. Vintage-looking cowboy boots stuffed with flowers were... Continue reading

Emmy Rossum is a flirty dress type of girl with a ladylike, free-spirited style that is effortless and unfussy. We don't often see her in jeans outside of her hit show, but even in a pair of dark blue pair of cigarette-legs she still manages to let her personal style shine through.

Yes, yes, I know. We just made it to spring and after the hellacious winter we've been having who wants to think about fall. That's the debate I've been having, but in the end excitement won out and I just couldn't keep NYDJ's fall 2014 sneak peek to myself. Continue reading

Are you ready for summer or just sick of the cold. It's without a doubt the latter for me. I've had it up to my eyeballs with the cold weather and summer (forget spring) just can't come fast enough. American... Continue reading

DL1961's spring collection has some great closet fillers for those trying to beef up their spring denim. There's nothing outrageous or statement-making, but I can say first hand that when it comes to fit, they've got it down pat. As... Continue reading
