Have hips? Consider yourself an hourglass or pear shape? If so, shopping for jeans might be a bit of a pain, even more so if you’re under 5’4″.

Lucky for you, we’ve searched high and low so you’ll never have to spend hours jean shopping ever again! Below are our top five favorites that are curvy girl approved:

1. Poetic Justice

4. Promod

This popular French retailer has finally opened shop in the USA! Although you can only find them in New York and Massachusetts at the moment, they are planning to expand.

Now to their jeans — omg! We weren’t expecting their denim to be curvy girl friendly considering they’re from France, but we were pleasantly surprised! They’re petite curvy girl friendly as well and go up to size 16.

Steal Her Look: Miranda Kerr’s Floral Pants

Posted 3 years ago by

The 29-year-old model was spotted wearing adorable floral trousers while running errands in New York City over the weekend. She’s also a repeat offender. She was spotted only days before wearing another pair! There is no denying it: floral pants are a hot item this summer. But how do you wear them?

Floral pants come in all different styles: trousers, leggings and even jeans. Once you know the style you want, just pair a simple shirt with it. It’s very easy to over do it. To be safe, a plain black, white or grey top is all you need…just like Miranda! The same goes for your shoes. On both days, Miranda paired her floral pants with either nude pumps or sandals.

If you’re short and/or petite, go for floral pants with a smaller print. If you’re tall and have long legs, you can go for the large and bold floral pairs.

Below are a few pants you might want to consider adding to your wardrobe.

Topshop: $72

Urban Outfitters: $39

Necessary Clothing: $27.99

Urban Outfitters: $49

Skulls & Studs: Two Trends That Will Take Over Summer 2012

Posted 3 years ago by

Way back when, studs and anything skull related were meant for the rebels living on the other side of the tracks and the disobedient teenagers of the 80’s. Well, in 2012 they’re elegantly meant for the office! How do you make studs office friendly you ask? Studded collars on elegant sheer tops. Now, collars have been popular since last summer, but mixing that fun trend with avante-garde studs creates one memorable piece of clothing.


Studs were seen all over the runway both last year and this year with sophisticated fashion houses including Valentino and Givenchy dousing their models with studded wallets, heels and jackets, but at a hefty price.

Finally, these tops are no longer off-limits for those who can’t afford the runway looks. Score your own sheer top with a studded collar for under $100 at many fine retailers including Topshop, Necessary Clothing and Zara!

Only $73.85 at Topshop

Only $48.00 at ASOS.com

Only $78.28 at ASOS.com

Only $59.00 at Urban Outfitters

Only $69.23 at ASOS.com

Tibetan Prayer Bracelets

Now for the skulls, “skull” is by no means a foreign word to the fashion industry. Back in 2007, skulls were worn by celebs young and old in the form of sheer scarfs. They quietly died down shortly after 2008. However, skulls have yet again found their way into our wardrobes, this time in our jewelry boxes in the form of Tibetan prayer beads.

$10.00 each at Paris Heroin Stars

I started noticing them at street venders all around Soho and Chinatown in early winter but didn’t think twice. On a recent shopping trip to the Converse store, I noticed hundreds of them in all different colors by the register and was in awe. I really liked them. Since that day last weekend I’ve noticed them on almost every wrist of those everyone would deem fashionable.

The hundreds of Tibetan prayer beads at the Converse store in Soho.

What are they?

Originating from Tibet, these beads help users contemplate the meaning of life and death during meditation. The skull is meant to help the mediator reflect on death and impermanence, and know that death is a fact, and that the closer that we can relate to death and embrace it, the sooner we can start living with love and compassion. A lot more meaningful than your typical summer trend.
