  • Go on, pants me | a Frame Le Cut Off denim shorts review

    Go on, pants me | a Frame Le Cut Off denim shorts review

    Do you ever feel like sometimes your denim cut-offs are too casual? Like, you need something more pulled together? Anyways, sometimes I want to look like my life is in order (and that apparently starts by getting non-frayed shorts). With no tears or rips, Frame’s “Le Cutoff” cuffed denim shorts should be the ultimate not […]

  • They can just Falke off | a Falke Tights Review

    They can just Falke off | a Falke Tights Review

    OK, so I ordered Falke tights from Shopbop and they arrived with a hole in them. Kinda weird and definitely annoying, right? What’s more strange and even more frustrating is Shopbop would only refund me if I sent them back. So, I did something I’m not proud of and asked the customer service rep to […]

  • Tights that’ll keep you in check | a SPANX tights review

    Tights that’ll keep you in check | a SPANX tights review

    If you’re like me, winter ushers a chilly snow cloud over your days… From accidentally eating dinner at 5:00pm (because it’s dark out) to generally feeling blergh (because you ate dinner at 5), winter sucks. … and if you’re like me, wearing tights that compress your legs & abdomen is winter’s only silver lining. After […]

    La grande bellezza | Realisation Par Monica Dress Review

    Note: Yuki here — I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Emerald Liu, who lives in Belgium. Emerald & I are constantly chatting about our shared (and might I say excellent) taste in music, literature, and fashion. As a massive fan of her own writing, I’m humbled that Emerald is graciously sharing her thoughts […]

  • Super big, but super flattering | AGOLDE Jeans review

    Super big, but super flattering | AGOLDE Jeans review

    After my AGOLDE Parker shorts, I was totally sold on AGOLDE jeans. Those shorts were perfect. … but AGOLDE’s sizing? Super inconsistent. During Shopbop’s bi-annual sale, the lure of silver AGOLDE Nico jeans reeled me faster than any dazzling bobby.

  • Vintage without the hassle | AGOLDE Parker Shorts Review

    Vintage without the hassle | AGOLDE Parker Shorts Review

    In 2010, I had this pair of vintage Levi’s denim shorts from What Goes Around Comes Around — I loved them. Side note: Don’t you think people sound so precious when they say their jeans are vintage Levi’s? — it’s like “oh, yes, you’re clever and unique with shorts you can’t readily buy anywhere.” … […]

  • I hate how expensive they are | SLVRLAKE Denim Review

    I hate how expensive they are | SLVRLAKE Denim Review

    SLVRLAKE must have come up while you were shopping for jeans online. … and, like me, you probably dismissed them as being an unjustified overpriced denim line. Why spend $349 on a pair of SLVRLAKE jeans when you can get some Levi’s for $98? Similar to Bianca Stratford explaining the difference between Sketchers and a […]

  • Super soft, but in between sizing | a Boyish Jeans Review

    Super soft, but in between sizing | a Boyish Jeans Review

    If you’ve read newinspired before, you know that there’s one topic that I particularly love/hate to talk about: Vintage Levi’s jeans. Those jeans are extremely elusive and mysterious to me. As a result, I’m always after jeans that mimic their style, but don’t require the work involved with sourcing and tailoring them. Enter: Boyish “The […]

  • Sizing is different for each style, but… | a MOTHER Denim Review

    Sizing is different for each style, but… | a MOTHER Denim Review

    It’s hard for denim brands to differentiate themselves. … like they all sell the same thing — jeans. MOTHER denim though? There’s this air of California light that surrounds on them. You know the kind I’m talking about — that Echo Park Indie Princess California aura of, ummm, coolness. Fringe is cut by themself, fridge […]

  • I tried (almost) everything Kate Moss modeled | a SKIMS review

    I tried (almost) everything Kate Moss modeled | a SKIMS review

    There’s a lot to write about the Kardashians. … like, I have a ton of thoughts about each sister and their momager. I mean, who doesn’t agree with, “the devil works hard, but Kris always works harder?” … but, as an ardent Kate Moss fan, I have even more thoughts about Kate’s SKIMS ads. The […]
