Amy Adams Wears Our Georgia Trousers

24 Mar

Looks like starlets are swapping their skinnies this spring for wide leg and trouser inspired styles!  Actress Amy Adams was recently spotted wearing a pair of our Georgia Trousers while out and about.  A celeb fav this season, the Georgia has also been seen on Audrina Patridge, Jessica Alba, and Kourtney Kardashian.  With its high waist and wide leg fit, this jean is the perfect answer to the 70’s trend that is all the rage right now.  Fun and flirty design details include a front coin pocket, double welt pockets, tailored back darting, and clean back pockets.  Now that’s groovy baby!

What To Pack For Spring Break

9 Mar

Spring break is that wonderful time of year where you get to escape the pre-summer doldrums and take off for a week to some exotic getaway. It’s also the perfect time to bust out those warm weather clothes you’ve been dying to wear all winter long. Here’s a list of must-pack items for your springtime getaway.

• Shoe Shoo-In – No one wants to carry luggage that’s weighed down by ten pairs of shoes. Instead, opt for footwear like our Bunny clog that transitions from days out in the sun to dancing the night away. This trendy and laid back clog silhouette is the perfect match for a pair of cute cut-off shorts and also slips on and off with the greatest of ease at airport security.

• Layer It On – Since it’s impossible to bring all the clothes in your closet, try packing pieces that are simple to layer and that can easily create new looks each day. It also never hurts to have extra layers on hand for unpredictable weather conditions. For women, try our Jean Jacket in Mid Manhattan, it looks cool and casual paired over a dress and can effortlessly be layered with a sweatershirt or lightweight jacket for cool nights on the beach. Guys, throw on our Zip Hoodie for a quick layer over a button down or graphic tee.

• Prepare For Takeoff – Make your journey as pleasant as possible with comfortable and fashionable travel gear that won’t leave you looking like a slob. Ladies, try our Cropped Straight Leg in Lightweight Twill made from a 7.7 oz. super-stretch twill fabric which will always keep you feeling (airport) runway ready. And guys, be ready to sit poolside the second you land by outfitting yourself in a pair of our functional yet trendy 100% cotton Cargo Shorts.

• Find Some Shade – Last, but certainly not least, you’re not traveling in true jet setter style if you’re not rocking some sweet sunnies. Protect your peeps from tropical rays with our plastic Echo sunglasses which come in four sleek colors for a variety of styling options. Oversized Starbucks cup not included.

Safe travels everyone!

New Rodarte Exhibit at MOCA

4 Mar

The design duo who gave us the beautiful costume designs for Black Swan, drool worthy collections season after season, and the winners of the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award in 2009, are now presenting their first ever solo museum exhibit on the West Coast. I’m of course referring to Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, who open Rodarte: States of Matter at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles today. Running through June 5th, the exhibit features select garments from the past three seasons of their collection, in addition to costumes from Black Swan. The purpose of the exhibit is to portray these articles of clothing as sculptural works of art that possess static motion. If you want more information about the exhibit click here. Have a great weekend Denim Dossier readers!

7 For All Mankind $1000 Style Muse Contest

2 Mar

Express your spring style! We are giving you the chance to show off what inspires your spring style by creating a set in our Polyvore mini-editor hosted on our Facebook fan page. From March 2nd to March 17th, you will have the opportunity to choose from 100 items of new spring product, accessories, and lifestyle images to create a beautiful and inspiring Polyvore set.

Here’s how it works, begin by creating a set in our Polyvore mini-editor and publish to the gallery. Then on March 17th, we will select the five most innovative sets from the mini-editor gallery to be posted on our Facebook fan page and voted on by our fans. Finally, the set with the most “likes” will receive a $1000 7 For All Mankind gift card. All sets MUST INCLUDE at least one 7 For All Mankind item to be eligible to win.

A little helpful hint that I discovered while playing around with the mini-editor is that if an item is not showing up, or looks pixilated, click “hide/show background” to fix it.

Below is a slide show of the clothing items featured in the mini-editor. I hope everyone enjoys creating their set as much as I did…start styling now!
