Good morning fab readers! We have a most fabulous guest blogger today, Elle of In A Word Fab. She did me the extreme pleasure of dishing the dirt about the NYC Levi’s Fall Fashion Preview Party. Here are the juicy details:
Greetings fabulites! Elle from In a Word…Fab here, and I am oh so pleased to bring you greetings from across the blogosphere! At the behest of the super sweet Celena, I recently attended the Levi’s Fall Fashion Preview Party in NYC, and Miss C has been kind enough to allow me to make a quick guest appearance on the Strictly Fab blog to report back on the newest arrivals in the Fall/Holiday collection of the legendary jeans brand.
I must tell you, though, this task was a tad daunting. Sure, jeans are the ultimate wardrobe staple…who among us doesn’t own one or a thousand pairs? But the fact remains that Elle is just not a jeans girl. I’ve come to rely almost completely on dresses as my go-to item. So, entering the Levi’s store, a jeans-lover’s dream, I was excited at the prospect of expanding my Fall 2008 wardrobe to include a great pair of jeans.
And wouldn’t you know…I didn’t find just one pair, but three! Drunk on cupcakes and champagne, and with the help of an amazing saleswoman named Carol, I tried on about fifty ‘leven pairs of Levi’s, from skinny to flared, from dark wash to light, and finally settled on the three below.
The first are a pair of Clean Wide Leg Trousers which were on sale (score!) and are made of ultra-light airy denim. Pocketless and sophisticated enough to accent with even the most glam accessories, these jeans make me feel unstoppable.
Next, I was introduced to Levi’s Re-Issued Collection, which are jeans inspired by Levi’s from the 60′s and 70′s, but with modern updates. I fell in love with the 1970 Flare’s and (forgive the drama) had to take it all the way retro with a vintage disco top and floppy hat.
Finally, I was introduced to the importance of having a pair of black jeans in the rotation. These Low Skinny 531 Jeans fit like a dream and go with about a million things that are already in my closet. How did I ever live without them?
It’s so official: ’tis the season for Levi’s!
Have a strictly stylish day!
