When I was growing up in Europe, owning a pair of Levi’s was the epitome of cool. It was like owning a piece of Americana. Sharing a piece of the American dream. Little did I know – in my tween years – that one day I’d find myself in the City of Angels in pursuit of my own dreams (with a few wondrous stops in India, Spain, Malawi, Italy and Panama sprinkled along the way…).
I remember campaigning for my first pair of Levi’s in Junior High (“au Collège” as we say in France). Strutting in a pair of 501’s was screaming hot. They were “the” ultimate fashion item and I was dying to have a pair of my own. In my three-child single-mother household, it was a rather extravagant wish but my fashion determination eventually paid off 😉 and I landed the denim of my dreams. Needless to say, I donned this pair way past the (appropriately) worn out stage and took them along on many traveling adventures.
I’m still a 501 girl (distressed cuffed boyfriend jeans are my off-duty uniform of choice), but I’ve recently developed a predilection for sexy skinny jeans and denim-on-denim. I love pairing my Levi’s mid-rise skinny with a classic trucker jacket for the ultimate SoCal day into evening look. It’s an effortlessly chic monochromatic look that’s so easy to pull off. I switch my daytime comfy flats for a pair of skyrocketing stilettos with color-coordinated clutch, and I’m ready for a night out.

What perfect photos! It’s still a great style as usual. You lady looks very beautiful, sexy and feminine. The outfit looks amazing and i love it, especially the Levi’s clothes and high heels 🙂 They’re stylish when you combined them together in ton-sur-ton.

I adooooore your sunnies!
I love how the green accessories stand out!
Looking good girl!
Glam it up or dress it down, Levi’s is still the way to go when it comes to jeans.
Oozing with sex appeal and yet you’re all covered up! Now that is how to be a woman ♥
Luv’it when you match everything up! Fresh green – I like!
The see-through top is smokin’
I like the blue-green combo. Hot!
We weren’t really rich when I was younger so having a pair of Levi’s was like having a new car. You gotta show it off!
Oh wow, the evolution of jeans. From the really-thick white-washed denims to the oh-so-soft skinny ones.
I remember having a big fight with my sis when we were younger because I ripped off her Levi’s coz ripped jeans were in that time. She said I desecrated her fave jeans. I don’t really regret it coz after that, she gave the Levi’s to me and I still have it!
my fave would be the button fly ones!
Awww i still have my fave Levi’s in my closet! Though I can barely fit in it now, I can’t bring myself to give it away. I had such great memories with it during my skinny teen years lol.
Levi’s would always be an authority in jeans.
