Falling Bombs are Shooting Stars Sometimes
The lovely folks at Ralph Lauren invited me to preview the new Rugby denim collection a little while ago, followed by a delicious dinner at The Lion with a super intimate group of six amazing fashion bloggers including Erica from P.S. I Made This, Jenn from Le Fashion, Elizabeth from White Lightning, Kelly from The Glamourai and Gala Darling.
I'm not usually very big on denim--I'm much more comfortable in dresses and skirts and I have an inordinately hard time finding jeans that fit me well. That's why it was such a surprise to me when I exited the fitting room that night wanting every single piece I had tried on. I don't know what it is those designers at Rugby are doing, but it's working. The skinny jeans fit me like a glove, had a super soft hand feel and a perfectly faded wash (so hard to find). The dark wide-leg jeans with suspenders were also amazing. But my favorite piece was the floor-length overall dress above. It's soft, comfy, a little bit dramatic, a little romantic, and definitely draws some major attention whenever I wear it out.
