  • 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 […]

  • Something feels off… | a Loeffler Randall Goldy boots review

    Something feels off… | a Loeffler Randall Goldy boots review

    Knee high boots are tough to buy. … at least I think they are. This is probably why, other than my Isabel Marant Denvee boots, I’ve never really bought a pair. There’s never really been a pair that stepped up to the plate — despite how much I’ve always want some knee high boots. … […]

  • 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 […]

  • I fell in love with these dresses | LoveShackFancy Sizing Review

    I fell in love with these dresses | LoveShackFancy Sizing Review

    Do you remember the first time you saw a LoveShackFancy dress? I (weirdly) do. This is so random, but I saw a photo of Selena Gomez wearing a dress in 2018 and was like “who is this by???” — the dress was almost as cute as she is! Then, I figured out it was from […]

  • Weird sizing, but so cute | an Ancient Greek Sandals review

    Weird sizing, but so cute | an Ancient Greek Sandals review

    For the longest time I’ve held out on buying Ancient Greek Sandals. Truth be told, it’s because I’m brand loyal to K. Jacques. … and I didn’t need another pair of leather sandals that look like my favourite French pairs. Then Ancient Greek Sandals did a collaboration with HVN. … and if you follow me […]

  • This slip dress HAS pockets | a Norma Kamali dress review

    This slip dress HAS pockets | a Norma Kamali dress review

    Like everywhere in the world right now, it’s hot in Montana (where I’m currently on vacation). To combat the heat I needed a lightweight dress that was totally unfussy. … something like Norma Kamali’s slip dress. Simple, long, and classic, I was intrigued…
