Denim Spotlight

Jeans have a long and colorful history in fashion dating back to the 1860’s and the California Gold Rush. Starting out as clothing for workers, and then evolving into a rebellious fashion statement, jeans are now an everyday basic that we all love to wear. It is said that Yves Saint-Laurent wished he had created the blue jean because they “are expressive and discreet, they have sex appeal and simplicity,-everything I could want for the clothes I design.” 

It wasn’t until the 1930’s when Vogue ran an advertisement featuring two women in tight-fitting jeans and called it “Western Chic” that denim became a sought-after fashion statement. By the mid-1930’s, shoppers could find denim in major department stores.

Today, we are thankful for this versatile fashion trend. We are in love with the different colors, cuts, and styles of denim. And we love styling outfits with them! Denim is one of those rare pieces that can be dressed up or down, be worn on the weekends, or during the work week, out with friends, or out on a fancy date. Jeans are part of our fashion DNA.

Pastels and One All Black Look that Pops

Even though we’ve seen snow as recently as this week, we know that spring is still coming around the corner. To keep our mind off the dreary wet weather outside, we’re having some fun creating spring-inspired outfits based on pastels and monotones. Plus, we had to throw in one all black look that really pops! We are still from Seattle after all, and you know how we love our blacks in Seattle.
