Sometimes I wish I could stay on the down-low when it comes to these fabulous denim sales, but I find it my duty to introduce you to the famous as well as the up-and-coming stars of the denim world: DL1961. The DL doesn’t stand for down-low; because, when you slide these jeans on, that’s going to be the farthest thing on your mind when you go out. As you can see, DL1961 has already been spotted on celebrities like Halle Berry, Blake Lively, January Jones and Rose McGowan, and my, don’t they look stylish! Incorporating the patented X-fit Lycra 4-way stretch technology, DL1961’s jeans are sure to fit real nice.
If you don’t already have a pair of DL1961s, then here’s your chance to get an introductory pair at a nice and easy price (normally retailed at $150 minimum), coming tomorrow at The Top Secret. Sale begins 9/24/2009 and ends 9/27/2009 at 11:59PM EST.
