Some info. about the label:
Emily Current and Merritt Elliott, a pair of L.A. stylists-turned-designers, launched this new line of chic, desirable denim. They self-advertised their new digs at photo shoots and soon, everyone wanted a pair of the looser, cooler jeans. The Current/Elliott label received praise from Vogue magazine’s July issue in citing it as “the most refreshing denim line to come out of L.A.’s jean scene in a long, long time.”
CC knows that the boyfriend are a current elliott jeans fave, but she assures you that The Legging will also become a staple in your closet, darlings! The fit is extraordinary, and the pockets are nice and low in back, making for a very flattering rear view!

Cocktail rings

fiona said...

i am but a poor just graduated no longer student and i need some fly pants :(

Anna Shapiro said...

Strapless dresses and high heeled booties are amazing together! Nearly anything looks great with high heeled booties, as long as you make sure to keep the other pieces according to the season.
But as great as the top pictures are, i'm for some reason, kind of in love with that picture at the bottom. The model is in a green dress, and is wearing bright, hot pink socks with nearly fluorescent yellow heeled sandals, i'm kind of in love with that footwear combination :)

Allison said...

I also loveee infinity pools :) That Gucci dress is gorgeous too, darling CC! You always pick the most lovely things...I also love that you play gin rummy with your sister! So fun!
I just love Current/Elliott. These jeans look fabulous! :)

Sher said...

Who won that gin rummy game? And do you cheat? Just kidding, but hey cheat to win!

Would love those skinny jeans!

TigerLily said...

CC, i love styleshake too!! I've posted about it last month ^o^

Aaand I loove those jeans (*drool).
It really does elongate your leg, doesnt it?

J'adore my hair dryer - the CHI low-EMF. It's the only one that hasn't up & died on me within 6 months and works perfectly; well worth the initial price.

That Collette Dinigan is spectacular!

valerie said...

I love Current Elliot Jeans! They are so figure flattering. I would love to win these, thanks for the giveaway!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

skinny jeans, loose tops and fabulous booties...great picks here, love.

MISS GLITZY said...

I would sip a glass of cabernet at an outdoor café wearing the Celine Resort booties and imagine how they wonderfully fit the Current/Elliott black legging!

Dream Sequins said...

I love the idea of socks with sandals. It's very kitschy but adds a whole new look to your wardrobe. BTW, current elliott is such a hot brand right now! I hope to win them!!!

kca10 said...

I love those purple Blank jeans. I had a pair of purple jeans, but stained and ruined them! The shade of the Blank jeans is much better than the pair I had though. Great find!

As for the Current/Elliott jeans - I need them!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Erika said...

I have been obsessed with Current/Elliott's legwear for months now. They are so flattering to so many different shapes. Oh, how I'd love to own a pair of my own.

Gucci Resort is marvelous...so carefree and fabulous! :)

sinnlighet said...

Yes yes yes, I like your blogg!

Agneta from Sweden

Stephanie C. said...

i can vouch for the current/elliot legging jeans...they are DIVINE. most perfect-fitting, most comfortable lightweight jeans i've ever worn! plus they make my legs look miles long- that's something, considering i'm only 5'2".

i've posted about these amazing jeans a few times on my blog (worn by moi).

since getting the black ones, i've been searching for a pair in blue denim, to no avail. :(

kpeach said...

LOVE Current/Elliot they're so surprisingly soft, I could live in them.
Also, I don't think I'll ever not want to do the mini dresses with booties-instantly hot.

Terence Sambo said...

I choose Gucci dress tonight. It's so me... (although I cannot afford Gucci, really...) :) And a pattern is a bit of Roberto Cavalli's idea a few seasons ago.
