Denim Review: American Eagle Sky High Jegging


Question: What’s cooler than a pair of light wash, flawlessly distressed jeans that fit like a glove and go with everything in your fall wardrobe? Answer? Nothing. MC recently received a pair of American Eagle Outfitters Sky High Jeggings from the AE vintage collection, and… well, she hasn’t taken them off ever since. These jeans are AE’s newest fit (and their highest rise, which we love), designed to look like a pair of well-worn vintage jeans, with all the comfort of a denim legging.

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Obsessed.”

Where/when would you wear these?

For me, these are the ultimate fall jeans. The sitting-in-coffee-shops, lattes-and-laptops, cozy-on-a-cool day jeans. I’ll be wearing them with my favorite oversize sweaters as often as with my tailored fall jackets. There’s enough distressed action happening above the knee for them to look awesome with knee-high boots, too.

And by the way, they come in 6 washes, so go ahead and try not to find a pair you can’t live without.

How’s the fit?

The high rise is exactly where I want it, and the ankles taper in perfectly. One pet peeve of mine is having too much fabric at the hem (which a bit of Denim Therapy’s hemming and tailoring can take care of), but I love when I try on a pair of jeans and this issue is pre-solved for me.

American Eagle & Aerie Preview: Bohemian Touches For Fall 2013


We dropped in the American Eagle & Aerie fall 2013 preview yesterday for a pastry and some AM fashion-gazing. The ever-expanding line has amp’d up selection in both the men’s and women’s departments. We were especially delighted to see a carefully played bohemian influence in the styling of chic denim separates, flirty scarves, and gorgeous jewelry. This season we’re loving the returning Artist fit jean for women who want to edge towards flare leg while keeping it chic. Check out the full preview below!

Neon & Printed Denim At The American Eagle FW12 Preview


We had a chance to swing by the American Eagle Fall/Winter 2012 preview on 34th street yesterday, and we liked what we saw. We ascended via elevator into a luminous pastel-neon denim heaven, chocked with spectrum colored and printed jeans, mannequins adorned in AE-styling, and mini breakfast pastries making rounds on platters. We fell hard for a gorgeous array of colored corduroy skinnies and cut-off shorts in every hue. Check out our photos of the event below for more.

Style: Slouchy Denim Shorts


Hey boys, don’t cry, girls just wanna have fun!  We can’t help that we love the slouchy ease and look of boyfriend jeans.  So maybe it’s getting a little annoying that we beg, borrow and steal your jeans for our selfish fashionable reasons, but there’s just nothing like the feeling of worn-in, naturally distressed, buttery soft denim jeans.

Ladies, let’s give our boos a break and invest in a pair of our own slouchy denim shorts (without the DIY trashing of your man’s favorite worn-in jeans).  Still fresh and more popular than ever for the sunshiny season to strut, frolick or lounge around in.  As usual, these denim shorties can be worn in multiple ways for multiple occasions so, get your slouchy denim jeans on!

Sass & Bide Boyfriend DNM Shorts

Sass & Bide Boyfriend Denim Shorts, $295.00

Perfectly distressed, torn and cuffed slouchy jeans.  Vamp it up with mile high heels or for a more vintage rough and tumble look, pull on a pair of cowboy boots…hee-haw!
