“She came back from California
Lost her way alone in Georgia
Found she wanted something more
Like what she did before
And then she stumbled back into me”
– “Skinny Jeans“, The Bigger Lights

I am not what you would call a ‘jeans girl‘. If you have read my book, you know that – for me – dresses make up 95% of my wardrobe. For this reason, I have found it incredibly surprising that I have fallen in love with Citizens of Humanity Avedon skinny jeans.

Practically, they should not work for me. As a petite, curvy woman with a very different frame to a sample-size model, skinny jeans usually don’t flatter my body type. The Avedons, however, have a luxuriously-textured denim with a flattering stretch that wraps around my curves without feeling like a jegging. My legs are praising the opportunity to stay warm (aka covered) this winter!

What I Wore – Thick, batwing sweater and Avedon skinny jeans.

Vogue Paris Impulsion Fluo
In a world of opinionated fashion followers, industry professionals were prepared to see an abundance of judgement over Emmanuelle Alt‘s first few issues of Vogue Paris. Unexpectedly, the only judgement I’m sending out is positive. Look at this shoot – “Impulsion Fluo” – from their May 2011 issue. Shot by Hans Feurer, we have a barely-photoshopped Sasha Pivovarova styled in the best hues imaginable, as picked by stylist Marie Chaix. The colours are outstanding and the realness of her body – the pink skin, the (always hidden) hair on her legs – is a breath of fresh fashion air. It’s beauty. View Post
