Starting the New Year with Flare

There is a new silhouette on the denim scene for 2011 and I could not be more excited to see this oldie but goodie make a comeback. Flare leg jeans have a super 70’s vibe that I LOVE and to me they just fit on more body types than the last denim trend of the skinny variety. I can’t wait to slip on some of these with some platforms and big glasses while humming to the tune of Stayin’ Alive.

Tipsy Favs: Jeans

Tipsy gals are here again to weigh in on our fav jeans.  Here’s our picks and our comments as to why they hug in all the right places.

  1. Sarah: Seven for All Mankind Bootcut Stretch Jeans: I like these jeans because they’re a) long enough to wear with boots or heels for my 5′ 11″ frame, b) curvy enough to fit my booty well,  and c) expensive enough that I have to cherish the one pair I own! 🙂
  2. Der:  Levis 537s Description Der found that she say is perfect: The Levi’s 537 Flare Jean is a classic Levi’s style. The soft heavy feel of the denim and five pocket styling are the perfect combination. The 537 is built to withstand all of the wear and tear that you can dish. Der’s description 🙂 : I feel like they hug all the right places and look great dressed up or down. BUT, I have the HARDEST time locating them. I had to buy my last pair off ebay because I couldn’t find ANY stores that sell them. BIG BUMMER. In fact, the only pic I could find is on ebay so if your a lucky size 8…snatch these UP!
  3. AK:  Joes Jean’s are my fav “going out” jeans somehow these jeans make my butt and thighs look a little smaller than they really are.  Maybe its the pocket placement or the seam placement but they are definitely worth the price to make things in the mirror smaller than they appear.  Levi 515s are my fav “knock around” jeans.  I’ve had a pair of these for a good 10-12 years and they are my go-to slouch-o-rama, weekend jeans.  They’re like butta.
  4. Court:  Old Navy Sweetheart These jeans hold up in harsh washing conditions, keep their color and don’t loose their boot cut leg which helps to balance out my curvy figure.

Ladies all shapes, sizes, and budgets–let us know what your favs are.

Eco Friendly Jeans: Your Booty and The Earth Will Thank You

I found a pair of jeans that are pretty fab. And BONUS POINTS: They are completely eco friendly. Levi’s Mid Rise Boot Cut 553 are quickly becoming my new favorite pair. Soft, soft, soft and made of 100% organic and recycled cotton, grown without synthetic chemicals or pesticides. Levi’s carefully selects materials that will help to promote a healthier environment, even down to the natural plant based indigo dye.

The rise is perfect for the no ass crack hanging out look I try to go for and they are a slimmer fit with a leg lengthening effect. So, Win for me, Win for Planet Earth. Go out and getcha some!
