At that point where it’s still stiflingly hot here in Los Angeles but starting to dream of Fall with all of it’s sweaters, boots and dark denim. Mental lists are being made of what’s necessary for this Fall and what will still work from last year plus the transitional pieces from this Summer that still have a lot of life left in them. At the top of the ‘must find’ list was a perfect pair of black denim and luckily they were checked off last week when the team at DSTLD sent me this pair of low rise skinny jeans…
DSTLD (‘distilled’) denim was founded in 2014 and is headquartered right here in Los Angeles, California—the mecca of premium denim. The DSTLD team is a passionate crew of denim fanatics that design and craft top-quality premium jeans and offer them to their customers directly – eliminating retail markup. DSTLD also offers the chance to ‘audition’ your new jeans with a custom-tailored, entirely free, Home Fitting experience. Select any three pairs and they’ll send them along for ten days of direct contact + consideration with zero risk or committment.
The black powerstretch low rise skinny that I chose fits true to size and has the perfect amount of body-hugging stretch and a unique lower rise front with a higher rise back which eliminates that annoying ‘gap’. I chose the petite inseam because I like jeans like this to hit a bit above the ankle so they don’t bunch up with pumps or booties and also are nice and smooth when worn tucked in to boots – maybe even those Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots which were on last year’s wish list and are now back on this year’s Fall / Winter list.
This bold statement necklace and matching earrings were a gift from the lovely ladies at 21HM boutique – on online shop of the most beautiful bold pieces at exceptional prices. It’s amazing how a bold collar like this can totally change the feel of a simple outfit.
