I finally had the opportunity to meet Kiley of A Sequin Dress At Breakfast
over brunch last weekend. Amongst a table of 10 other loudly chattering bloggers and friends, we we gabbed about how delicious our omlettes were, the craziness of New York Fashion Week, and luckily for you guys – a little bit about denim!
What’s your denim philosophy?
If styled in the right way, denim can be appropriate for any occasion. The right top, accessories, shoes, and bag can sometimes turn jeans into a more dressy outfit than a dress itself. Also, don’t be stuck to the size you think you are. Different brands sizes can run across the board in fit, so don’t be afraid to go smaller or bigger than usual to get the perfect fit. It’s just a number – that only you will see.
What do you wear with denim?
Honestly? Anything. I’ve always loved the look of a classic white tee shirt with the perfect pair of dark denim flares
. But I’m also a fan of all things sparkly, so of course I love to pair my sequins
with my jeans. And with fall right around the corner, I practically live in my fur vest
every day and it always looks right with any of my denim.
What are your favorite brands?
My favorite skinny jeans are Joe’s
, and my favorite trouser style and straight fit (that I cuff up) are both from the Gap
. They’ve done denim forever, and as many pairs of jeans as I buy, I always tend to wear my old Gap favorites.
Tell us about the jeans you wear most often?
Recently, I’ve been loving my red jeans
that I found at a local thrift shop. They are the perfect length and fit so I can wear them long or cuffed. I also have been living in my previously white denim cutoff shorts
that I recently had dyed hot pink.
What is on your denim wish list?
