Beyond the Rack is serving up some delish denim deals for after Christmas shopping, which usually means belated Christmas presents or more “shopping for me” time. In either case, Beyond The Rack has been showcasing some great brands at terrific prices, much better than many other member’s only shopping sites. For example, they’ve sold 7 for All Mankind jeans for $41 to $81, and Sevens never goes that low anywhere! Don’t miss the denim blowout sale, beginning Saturday, December 26.
Beyond The Rack Denim Blowout

The newest denim label to launch in 2010 is making great waves on Twitter. Known to many as @airessandchurch, Airess & Church are the first denim line to boldly go where no denim label has gone before: to launch strictly on social media word-of-mouth, if you will. What’s more, there are no plans to acquire retail stockists, so you’ll be getting your A&C denim direct from them, hence the slogan: “Never in Stores, Always in Style.”
As far as I can tell, their jeans look super hot. I love the indigo-saturated and tailored look to jeans, and Airess & Church won’t disappoint on that aspect. Featuring smooth lines and subtle detailing, one could go from work to evening to a twilight luau without changing out of their Airess & Church jeans. But beyond the superficial front, the jeans are made from Egyptian long stem cotton, regarded as the best in the world, according to Airess & Church.
Their Classic Edition Jeans just “landed stateside” recently, and they are already working as hard as elves in Santa’s workshop to get the latest denim and accessories ready for their early 2010 launch. Yes, they will have shoes, handbags and eyewear, too! The Web site is expected to launch in June, so stay tuned on Twitter for the latest events and updates.
Check out Airess & Church on Twitter! They run contests and giveaways for their followers, who can win free jeans. Yippee!
And mankind created legging jeans. And he saw that it was very good. Behold! YMI Extreme is the new legging jean that will make fashionistas devout believers. The denim gods must have heard my cry for legging jeans, because, like a miracle, I received a brand new pair of the YMI Extreme Skinny legging jeans. They were the solution to my current snowjogger boot addiction, because the darn jeans stayed inside! No socks, rubber bands or clips needed. I love low-maintenance jeans.
The Extreme is YMI Jeanswear’s new legging jean collection. Mine came in a 32″ inseam, but they fit me perfectly (I normally prefer a 31″ or 30″). As tight as they are — they’re called legging jeans for a reason — I don’t feel like it’s cutting off circulation. Even though they say you get what you pay for, you certainy get a lot for your money here (retails for only $38). It is well-constructed throughout, complete with custom hardware (button and rivets). So, now, the dilemma is: what shoes do I wear with them? Booties? Snowjoggers? Knee boots? Ballerinas? Stilettos? Geepers. They all work!
If you aren’t lucky enough to snag a pair of Extremes, here’s your chance to win a pair and some other fab prizes on YMI’s Facebook contest page.
– Win a $500 shopping spree
– Win a pair of YMI Extreme Jeans
– Win Krista’s debut album
I don’t like to overdo it with the denim look, but I do love Lanvin, the couture house that brings us these lovely denim pumps. They are stacked rather high, but I can see a retro babe sporting these with her cropped jeans, clamdiggers or some other Betty Page-esque rendition. Another great pairing would be a khaki trenchcoat to highlight the natural, wooden heel. It’s the modern Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman’s character in “Casablanca”), bidding adieu at the airport. Ah, romance!
On sale now, online at Barney’s for a fraction of the original price, and you can get free complimentary ground shipping to receive your order by December 25.
