    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.

    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.

From 2004 (omg remember Earnest Sewn bootcut jeans???) to 2020, a good pair of jeans will bring out your finest assets. In my top shelf drawer, […]

  • I tried them & wasn’t paid to: a Levi’s Ribcage Jeans Review

    I tried them & wasn’t paid to: a Levi’s Ribcage Jeans Review

    From your dad back home in Ohio to the latest it-girl in France. … everyone wears Levi’s. Except for me, apparently. It makes sense — I’m not your dad and, as hard as I may try, I’m not a French it-girl. When I saw Levi’s Ribcage jeans though, I was like, “hmmm, let’s see if […]
