A traumatic (and very not-cute) bike accident while on vacation last week inspired us to share some of our recent knee repairs with you guys. Although our jeans were okay, our knees and pride were a little more than bruised. Check out some recent before and after knee repairs below. Had we needed it, we know exactly where we would have taken our jeans for repair!
Wednesday night Nudie Jeans Co & Brooklyn Denim Co threw a party in Williamsburg to celebrate the arrival of new Fall/Winter styles instore, sponsored by Death + Taxes Magazine, Budweiser and Vitamin Water. The line was stretched around the block of eager denim and music fans waiting to get inside, where in-demand bands Porcelain Raft and Oberhofer were getting ready to perform. Lydia from The Swede Beat performed a bangin’ DJ set before the bands took the stage. To say some trend-setting denim looks showed up in the crowd would be an understatement. Check out the party pics below. Watch Oberhofer performing here and check out Porcelain Raft performing here!

Summer is sadly ending and before we know it we’ll be braving the cold once again–but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! J Brand gives us hope for fall with the timely release of their high-waisted denim jeans, which are available in a skinny and wide-leg cut. Our shorts and sandals might be going back into hibernation, but we can’t hide our excitement at the thought of adding these hot looks to our wardrobe this upcoming season.

Denim short shorts are all the rage, and Cali-based blogger Aimee Song knows a thing or two about how to rock a pair. In this recent snap of her walking around Venice Beach she styles a pair of high waisted vintage Levi’s denim shorts with a cute breezy rainbow knit top by Anarchy Street for a perfect late summer look. A chunky western-inspired belt and killer boots add a perfect trendy touch—we love! This is definitely a look you might want to hit the boardwalk in before the summer comes to an end.

We’ve been waiting and the time has come! Diesel has released their JOGG Jean Collection in their online store and with the added bonus of free shipping! That is an offer that is hard to refuse, especially when you’ll be receiving such cool and comfortable pieces of denim. The collection comes in both men’s and women’s styles, so this is a perfect splurge for you or your guy (or both!). Diesel really sets the bar high for contemporary denim with this line and though it is a crossbreed of denim and sweat pants, we’re not going to let that appeal to our lazy side–we’re snatching up a pair of these jeans ASAP!

Olivia Wilde graces NYLON’S August 2011 “denim nation” cover in nothing else but fab denim. The “punk gets pretty” editorial spread features Wilde donning some killer denim duds by the likes of Guess, Genetic Denim, Aritzia and The Gap. While discussing her latest movies, (Tron and Cowboys and Aliens) and of course her love of denim and all things pertaining to it. We fell in love with the white denim shorts paired with the white denim vest, the bikini top peeping through underneath the vest, has an alluring understatement to it. We also love the spiked bubble gum colored Chuck Taylors and the cover poster of Wilde,(A sneak peak at what’s to come in the issue,) wearing a pair of cut off denim shorts and a mid drift baring crop top. Her stance and poise in the photo make an outfit even this risqu?, sexy and confident. We can’t wait to pick up this issue which hits newstands and bookstores July 30th, we’re hoping you do the same.

Top three reasons why we love the 70’s era: Jimi Hendrix, 8 track tapes, and the beautiful Farrah Fawcett. It was an era that transformed peace loving hippies into rocking trendsetters of the 80’s. Believe it or not, the 1970s also perpetually inspired our style, with key pieces such as macrame, fringe, floppy hats, and feathered jewelry. Denim pieces such as, wide leg pants, and button up skirts were essentially must have items. Combine these two elements and you have the effortlessly chic style of the 70s. So it’s easy to see why the trend has come back into play, Bohemian “boho chic” (seen below) is a modern 70s flair that screams sexy and powerful but not to overdone. After all, who wouldn’t want to kick butt (think Charlie Angels) in a pair of wide leg high rise pants? We wouldn’t have it any other way.

For your viewing and listening pleasures, we bring you model Brianna of Look Models, romping around in a couple of denim cutoff shorts. In “Summer Fun,” Brianna is styled with a couple of beach-friendly tops, taking a stroll while Beck’s “Golden Age” sets the mood. Don’t you just love those lazy weekends? And, don’t think we didn’t notice that she’s showing off a pair of Levi’s high-waisted jeans which have been cut at a slight bias, revealing more on the hips, and longer at the inner thighs. With a bit of fraying, the cut offs look very DIY, but done very well. What do you think of this look? Would you have gone with a low-rise pair of jeans, or do you think this is perfection?

If you’re anything like us, then chances are you have a mad crush on anything Balmain. Bold shoulders, studs, leather, super-skinny jeans, and a killer rock n’ roll attitude—aside from the hefty price-point, what’s not to love? Well, lucky for us the French fashion house is introducing Pierre Balmain, a younger collection for both guys and gals that promises to keep enticing us with rockin’ designer duds for a lot less. And by the looks of it all there’s a whole lot for us to crush over from a two-toned dip-dyed denim skirt to killer zipper-laden denim trousers. Needless to say we can’t wait to see what the full collection has in store for us. We’ll definitely keep you posted!

Etsy has done it again! Just when we were getting concerned that the world of denim accessories was losing steam, we found one that is perfect for men AND women: a black denim iPad case! Not only do we love it because it is made from the loveliest of fabrics, but the bold red stitching really sets it apart from your normal iPad accessory. Topped off with a funky black, red, and white printed lining, you’ll get automatic cool points from techies and fashionistas alike! (Now that is hard to do!) Reinforced with velcro and foam to make sure your iPad stays out of harm’s way, there is nothing left to worry about besides the impending theft from your soon to be jealous friends.
