Julie Saner shows how great denim can make you look (topless or not!), as well as all the other options they have of knits, outerwear, tees, and blouses. The catalogue displays an aura of sophistication that is perfect for the workplace, a day out in the city, or the hustle of an ivy-league campus. Armani Jeans makes sure you have plenty of options to match with your favorite denim piece—we’re dying to get our hands on thatdenim skirt and fur/leather jacket combo ourselves!

Were you at the BLK DNM grand opening early last month? For those of us who weren’t, here is behind-the-scenes footage, shot by Marius Crowne, of the store opening, from set-up to flowing vodka. Keep your eyes peeled, because Johan Lindeberg is seen in several shots chatting up his guests.
While you’re there, the ladies might want to check out Jeans 6 for women, which is a high rise jean, and Jeans 15 for men, which is a slight drop-crotch for men, with fuller thigh openings which narrow at the ankle. Hurry: this is reportedly a temporary store, which might be open for another week or two more. BLK DNM’s New York City store is located at 237 Lafayette Street, New York City. For more information, go to BLK DNM online.

On day 2 of our PROJECT Global Trade Show coverage we got to chat with Helen Soulmiotis, senior account executive of Raven Denim. Loved by many-a-celebrity (the aptly named bootylicious Megan Fox short is a clear indiction of how much she loves the brand), the LA-based Raven is definitely one to watch. As a complement to their already popular women’s line, the brand is launching a men’s line. We absolutely fell in love with the Max trouser (most popular piece in their men’s line), which adds a relaxed twist to the classic trouser. All of the denim is imported from Italy and Japan and comes in washes that compliment any wardrobe. From high waisted that don’t make you look like a mom, to indigo rinsed trousers that elongate the leg, Raven denim is definitely something we’re raving about (yes, pun intended).

Nothing makes tumbleweed and cattle suddenly look sexy than a pair of cut-off shorts and denim Jeffrey Campbell platform shoes. We spotted this stylish gal perusing her prairie on Nasty Gal and knew you’d wanna see her. We love everything about this photo shoot, from the scenic desert locale to the black wide-brimmed hat. But those denim shorts, with their perfect cut, distressing, and scandalous fit, were the star of the show. And those Jeffrey Campbell’s? Well, you already know we’re obsessed with those. Her early ’90s style fringe-cut t-shirt is a throwback to when most of us were in elementary school (if that’s coming back, we’re on the band wagon), and the attitude of her stance (maybe her killer legs too), pull the whole thing together. This is one lookbook that has desert hot written all over it.

You know, one thing still on our summer to-do list is going on a spur of the moment road trip—windows down, tunes on blast, and looking casual-cool in our favorite denim get ups (obviously). This editorial out of the pages of H&M Magazine’s Summer 2011 issue shot by Daniel Jackson has definitely got our inspiration going with its perfect bold print-on-print and denim combos. Florals and animal print topped with a denim vest? Uh, yes please! All that’s left is a pair of oversized sunnies, a killer swim suit, and a pair of denim overalls (for easy wardrobe changes) and we’re set. Alright, who’s coming?

Our phone, is usually the first thing we reach for in the morning before we wipe the crust out of eyes (gross! yes we know) and grab a cup of coffee. And who can blame us? When we’ve become so sidetracked with endless emails, text messages, instant messages and an overwhelmingly full vociemail inbox that we sometimes forget the simplest things like where we left our keys. Which is where the almighty smart phone comes into play, with it’s convenient, handy and ever so clever apps, our daily routine has just been made simpler with the touch of a screen. We took the liberty to share with you some of our favorite apps, denim included, (an updated list from the last one we posted.) So go ahead take a look, promise it isn’t as bad as the morning crust/bad breath we all deal with daily.
