If you’ve been following my site for even a little while, you’ll know that I have always described myself as a “southern woman who loves sweet tea and a great fitting pair of blue jeans.” So, while there have been lots of brands that I’ve had the good fortune to work with over the past 4 years, receiving an email from the folks at Lucky Brand, pretty much made my month. I’ve been huge fan of the brand, especially their denim, since I was a mere kid in high school. I’ve owned too many pairs of Lucky Brand jeans in the past 10 years to count, so I jumped at the opportunity to out a few new items from their spring line – especially their colored denim.
I’ve also paired these same red jeans with a black tank and a 3/4 length sleeved black blazer for a business meeting in LA. Currently I’m on a quest to find a turquoise top to wear with these pants, because I love color-blocking and I think it could make for a really fun, bold look. My next purchase is definitely going to be these same exact jeans, but in bright blue. I’m obsessed. (Pardon the grainy iPhone photo).
I actually went into my local Lucky store to grab these next pair of jeans because I wanted to be able to look around at all of the different styles, and try on a few different pairs before I made a commitment. I immediately picked up a pair of the Lola Skinny Jeans (don’t be fooled by the name, they are actually a “curvy” fit) and when I tried them on, it was love at first sight. The dark wash made them very flattering on me, and they even had a bit of a stretch to them. Interestingly enough, I had to go a size down in these, but hey, I won’t complain.
I love these jeans because the dark wash makes them so versatile – I can wear them with a fancy-schmancy top or I can just go with a t-shirt and jeans. I kind of mixed the two here – I styled them with a black v-neck t-shirt, a black knit cardigan, a purple scarf, and my L.K. Bennett Maddox Wedges. What do you think?
Even better – the new summer line hit the website as of today – so there are all kinds of new items to check out over there. I’ll be on my honeymoon in Bora Bora at this time in 6 months, so all I can think when I see the new line is “Oh, how perfect would that be for the honeymoon!” Like this silk Dale Hope Corrine Dress – how gorgeous is this?
I’ve been drooling over some of the awesome accessories like the floppy straw hat, turquoise necklaces, and colored skinny belts. I’m also really excited to see the colored denim trend move into shorts – they have lots of brightly colored shorts now gracing the pages of their site as well.
So what do you think? Are you as obsessed as I am?
