5 Pairs of High Waist White Denim We Need Now

by Christina Uzzardi

high waist white denim

Hannah Henderson of Los Angeles based boutique General Store has been a denim inspiration for a while. She masters chic boho, and basically lives in denim and wears every pair with ease. So it’s no surprise that Madewell featured here this week on their blog. And the images are having a moment on Pinterest. Along with re-affirming of obsession with Hannah, this also began what is now an obsession with high waist white denim. I NEED a pair and I want them to look exactly like they do here. Here are five pairs we want now.

Loving: Awesome Denim Looks from TheyAllHateUs

by Jennine Jacob


I first stumbled upon TheyAllHateUs through their amazing Pinterest. Somehow, I don’t know why, I thought they were a retailer, but no… TheyAllHateUs is a blog from Australia (they do have their own shop however). Tash, a buyer (and a mother of two) and Elle a merchandising manager, have both the professional eye of fashion and style that is both effortless and somehow defies age. Elle, according to her bio has over 30 pairs of denim shorts and wears them all the time… looking amazing of course! They mix denim in with designer pieces, mastered the distressed denim look and really have a wonderful way about keeping things simple, yet always inspiring.

So basically, what I’m saying… check out TheyAllHateUs.

Look for Fall: Fidelity Denim

by Jennine Jacob



Summer may just be starting, but as you know the fashion industry like to keep you thinking about the next season. Fidelity Denim’s fall collection has just the key pieces you need in your wardrobe. Dark rinse jeans with subtle distressing. Holes in your jeans that are just so… meaning… holes that you can probably get away with wearing to work for casual Friday. Drop crotch jeans that taper (now, I don’t know about you, but I see these above and say YES!) And the sweetest boot cut jeans you can keep forever.

Denim Icon: Pharrell Williams

by Jennine Jacob

Ok… for those of you who didn’t see the clip of Pharrell Williams brought to tears (of joy) on Oprah. Watch this. It’s like, you pretty much have to be a robot not to cry. My eyes teared watching the clip of people around the world dancing to “Happy” and I’m not a cryer.

The talent of Pharrell  Williams goes beyond making music and melting the heart of the internet… he also takes fashion risks (and pulls them off beautifully) from wearing a giant Smokey the Bear hat, to donning shorts tuxedo at the Oscars. He also is a mix master when it comes to prints and layering.

Have a bow tie and don’t have an excuse to wear it? Just wear it with denim shorts. Problem solved.



Timeless weekend wear, jeans and a ribbed sweater.


A camouflage shirt and tie with a sport jacket, cardigan and baseball hat.


Popover chambray shirt with cutoff denim shorts… perfect for summer.

13 Denim Looks from Coachella We Love

by Jennine Jacob


If you’ve been online the last week, you’ve probably run into an influx of Coachella posts. It seems like EVERYONE is going, except us, right? Well, rest assured not EVERYONE is going. That said, it’s still quite fun to be all lurky by checking out the styles at the festival, because in all reality this being April, and it being sooo hot in Coachella, CA this is a great window into seeing what’ going to be hot for the summer style this year. As you can see, denim shortalls are going to be everywhere (I mean they’ve been trying to bring back overalls for what… three years now?) So I’m delighted to see the overall trend looking well. And of course how short are those denim shorts? Not short enough! It’s amazing how short these are and still looking amazing. Gotta love youth in the summer.

Weekend Denim Style: Rosa at The Flea Market

by Jennine Jacob

rosa_chambray_shirtHappy Friday!

What are you all doing this weekend? Last week we went to the Alameda Flea Market, which is rather a fashion affair for San Francisco Bay Area peeps. While there were some pretty wild outfits, I pretty much fell in love with this very simple, yet very chic outfit worn by our friend Rosa. A simple denim shirt paired with a floral skirt, crossbody purse and a pair of unassuming shoes makes for an outfit that’s completely and effortlessly chic. Perfect for the weekend, right?



Trending: Shower Shoes & Denim

by Christina Uzzardi

You could not have forced me to believe that my old Adidas shower slides would be in style again. Or actually, would ever be in style because as far as I remember they weren’t high fashion when I owned a pair in high school. But as a natural extension from the comfy Birkenstock revival comes the new shower sandal trend. Slip ons spawned by Celine, Isabel Marant, and a million copy cats. So naturally, people are pairing their comfy shower shoes with denim, and if this trend is for you, you’re in luck because they’re not only comfortable but they go with all types of denim: boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, cuffed denim, denim skirts, denim shorts. Here are a few looks.

For those of you who love a good sample sale and those of you who love a good deal, MiH is having a sample sale April 23rd-25th. Prices starting at $40 for their jeans, you really can’t beat that! I mean, I totally love my MiH Marrakech Kick Flares, and they’ve held up so well over the years. So wish I was in NYC to take advantage! You’ll have to make it there and shop for the both of us.

Madewell April Denim Looks Ease Into Spring

by Jennine Jacob


Is it Spring everywhere yet? Well, not the southern hemisphere for obvious reasons… Anyway, Madewell’s denim line has always been a fantastic brand to go to. Clean cut with a hint of boho, it’s kind of like Anthropologie for the sensible girl. The Spring collection had taken a turn for the (more) casual as their new head designer, Somsack Sikhounmuong, has taken over. Although, I’ve always thought Madewell was a bit young and casual. The denim pieces are great for basics, like your chambray shirts in that perfect shade of indigo, jeans with the perfect amount of weekend slouch. So even if you’re taking it easy, you’re still looking perfect.

Wear it Now: Trench Coats & Jeans

by Jennine Jacob


March Springs, April Showers. So says the rhyme, and also the weather report. The past few weeks we’ve got a much needed burst of rain, there’s a slight chill in the air, not enough to wear a wool coat, but certainly enough to wear a trench coat. I’ve been wearing my trench coat pretty regularly, which thrown on over a pair of skinny jeans is the perfect spring outfit. If you’re lucky enough to find a denim trench (the one piece I’m absolutely dying to get in my closet), you can even carry off a statement denim look without much fuss. All in all a trench coat with jean… nothing is more effortlessly chic this spring.
