Cut-Off Denim (Never Goes Out Of Style)

I’ve worn cut-off denim since I was a little girl in the 70’s. I usually prefer vintage Levis, but there are many, many other brands that offer the retro look with modern day appeal. So, what’s the allure of the cut-off? In my opinion, they are super versatile and super sexy. There’s something about a girl with a pair of low-slung cut-offs. It captures the all-American feel. She’s got tan gams, radiant skin, and beach worthy hair. And probably flip-flops on her feet (at least that’s how I picture it). The one thing I know for sure-these iconic beauties will never go out of style. Here’s a look at some new versions that are very bit as sassy as the vintage offerings.

The All-American cut-off girl. Mary Kate wears Wrangler and Ashley is in Levis.

Cut-off denim shorts $22.94 available at Old Navy
I love the cute pockets on these.

Destroyed denim midi short $29.99 available at American Eagle
Cut-offs should have a certain amount of destruction. You don’t want them to look brand new.

Textile Elizabeth and James Peeking Pocket short $165 available at Amazon
I adore these. They look like they’ve been worn for years. But be aware-they are super short.

Juicy Couture Vintage denim $98 available at Piperlime
The fading and whiskering are in just the right places.

Mek Nexus shorts $79 available at Zappos
A little longer for those who want more coverage.

Rich and Skinny Venice striped cut-off $103 available at Madison LA
These are a fun and playful alternative to regular denim. They scream ’60’s surf!

Lucky Brand Riley $69.50 available at Zappos
Slightly longer but very vintage looking.

501 Worn cut-off $58 available at Levis
White denim is a huge trend for summer and you can’t go wrong with 501’s. They are the original!

True Religion Joey $174 available at Zappos
Joey’s are known for making every bootie look fabulous. And the wash is great too.

Siwy Camilla (as seen on Megan Fox) $158 available at Singer 22
These are a favorite of the celebrity set. They are super short and super sexy.

Celebs love their cut-off denim. Take a look at these fashionistas putting their signature on the iconic style.

Giselle adds a big belt.

Victoria Beckham makes a very rare “casual” appearance.

Here Victoria shows how to dress-up cut-offs.

Megan Fox rocks her Siwys again!

Nicole Richie does a more boho look.

Alexa Chung makes the look her own.

Me (standing) and a friend, circa 1995. I’m wearing vintage men’s 501’s that I cut off.

It’s not hard to see why I love cut-off denim. They are a timeless classic, and I have to admit, I feel younger when I don a pair.


My mom rockin the cut-offs in 1974. Happy Mother’s Day Mom-I love you!

Cat Eyes

I am addicted to sunglasses. Even on the cloudiest of days, I cannot leave home without them. I think blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun. Choosing the right pair is essential, especially if you’re spending a lot of money. They are a major statement piece and it’s important to wear a pair that fits your style. A huge trend in frames this season is the Cat Eye. This silhouette has been around for decades, but comes and goes as far as trends are concerned. I’ve always been a huge fan! They are super glamorous and look great on almost everyone. Here’s a look at my top picks this season.

Tortoise, especially in coffee shades, are huge right now. This color really does look good on everyone.

House of Harlow 1960 (Nicole Richie’s label) $138 available at Nordstrom
Touch-Cat Eye $29.99 available at Mango
Juicy Couture Cat’s Eye $120 available at Nordstrom
Tory Burch Polarized Cat Eye Hinge Logo $165 available at Bloomingdale’s

Neon and other bright colors are another hot trend for summer. They are super playful!

Kate Spade New York “Florence Broadhurst” Retro $128 available at Nordstrom
House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea sunglasses $138 available at Nordstrom
Selima for J. Crew “Sophia” $128 available at J. Crew
Betsey Johnson Crazy Cat Eye $55 available at Urban Outfitters

Sometimes simple and more subdued is the way to go. These are more reminiscent of those from decades gone by.

Colors in Optics “Brooklyn” $125 available at Nordstrom
Corrine McCormack reading sunglasses $60 available at Nordstrom
“Jackie” sunglasses $30 available at American Apparel
I-Line “Hot Cat” reading sunglasses $60 available at Nordstrom

Sunglasses are the ultimate accessory when the sun is shining. Be sure to try on many pairs, get someone’s opinion, and have fun!!

Skaist Taylor at Fashion Week

I’ve been waiting a long time for a new collection from Juicy Couture founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor. And it finally happened Sunday in parking garage under Lincoln Center. The new line, simply called Skaist Taylor, is fabulous. They’ve deemed it “Cali-eccentric” and is for girls who love fashion and enjoy mixing high and low end with vintage tossed in for good measure. The collection consists of tees, outerwear, pants, and luxurious knits. You won’t find any velour tracksuits, but it’s still comfortable and fashion forward. The line will be in stores for Fall 2012 and prices range from $175-$3000. Here’s just a taste!

The sweater is divine, the cut of the pant is perfection, and the hat is just fun.

Love the fur (of course) and the shorter front/ longer back seems to be the trend for dresses and skirts.

Very bohemian. The detail on the dress is great.

Another bohemian look. You can see that straight hair is going to be huge for fall.

A new twist on the peasant top.

Pea Coats are huge for fall. I love the gray with red accessories.

A super cool alternative to the regular suit. The skinny, cropped pants are awesome!

My heroes- Gela and Pam!

Juicy Goodness

I used to be a huge Juicy Couture fan. I can’t even begin to tell you how many track suits I have owned. But over the past couple of years, I’ve forgotten how great the line is. Today I decided to reintroduce myself to JC and found some amazing pieces.

Velour Robe with Tie $98
This is so cozy looking-perfect for cold winter mornings

Corduroy Skinny Pant $158
I’ll say it again-I love corduroy!

Drop Waist Wool Coat $448
I love the plaid and the fur hood

Nylon Puffer Coat $398
Nothing keeps me warmer than a good puffer and this one is so stylish

Gatsby Beaded Dress $448
Love the flapper look and the beading is a great detail

Heloise Large Tote $428
I’m always on the lookout for a good leather tote

Furry Beret $58
Berets are my number one choice for winter hats, and of course, I love fur

Pave Owl Ring $78
Big rings are so glamorous

Pave Silver Starter Bracelet $58

Ballerina Gold Charm $52
I love charm bracelets and Juicy has the best one. You choose from their many charms and add to it whenever you want

All items available at Juicy Couture

I’m really excited for the launch of Skaist Taylor in February 2012. Juicy Couture creators, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, sold Juicy to Liz Claiborne in 2003 and left the company in early 2010. Their new line will be a return to what they do best-design clothing they want to wear. But don’t expect track suits-these ladies have moved on!
