I'm convinced that finding the perfect pair of jeans is almost as tough as searching for a needle in a haystack. I said almost! So when you do track down one that hugs you in all the right places, I advise buying in bulk. eLuxury has made it a wee bit simpler to narrow your options with its denim guide. Besides getting advice from editors, you also get tips from the designers themselves. Check out 18th Amendment's fit guide and designer Q&A. Same goes for J Brand, Seven For All Mankind, Acne, Paige Denim, Rock & Republic, and Rich & Skinny.
Fancy a pair of short shorts? These 18th Amendment 'West' Denim Shorts in Herringbone are just the ticket. The thing to remember, however, when shopping ecommerce is that nothing is quite as short as it looks, unless, that is, you happen to be 5'11". If you're not, you can count on that 'mini' dress coming straight down to your knees, those floor sweeping wide leg trousers to bunch up at the floor, and those 'short shorts' to just be, well, short. While many jeans shorts walk a fine line between relaxed and straight up tacky, these shorts have the sort of details that put them in the former category. There's a smocked waistband at the back which helps with the sizing issue, that is, high waisted garments can be hard to size as you have to consider not only your hip measurements but your waist as well. The denim, a light (right on trend) herringbone wash also give them that tailored fabric feeling, so they don't look like the Levi's cut offs you've had for ten years. 18th Amendment is an Australian denim company. The line pivots on vintage silhouettes and so became especially coveted when styles like the high waisted, wide leg trousers came back into fashion.

Our original Coutorture editorial of the Trovata Fall 08 collection has made us want to head upstate to go camping. This outfit, inspired by Rocio Romero's Fish Camp, is a compromise between a New Yorker's style sensibility and a prefab camping trip. Just for the record, we don't find it strange whatsoever to be in the middle of the woods wearing Oscar de la Renta heels. You could absolutely cook up a tagine, read a book, or wave to your friends who are running around in Teva's, while relaxing on the porch of this little place. Fish Camp, a prefab that measures 312 square feet, might be small to some, but to a city dweller, it's a fine amount of space for a simple retreat.
The online boutique devoted to Kiwi fashion, Elizabeth-Charles.com, is throwing a warehouse sale and knocking 50-90 percent off their stock. The site stocks cult favorite labels like Lover, Karen Walker, 18th Amendment, Alice McCall, and Camilla & Marc. I'm taken by this Yeojin Bae Jean Shift Dress ($127, originally $599): it has a cute silhouette and and I love the girly feel the bow creates.
She's the cousin whose closet you've always wanted to raid — you only see her a handful of times each year, but each time, her wears get more and more covetable. So how do you keep up? And better yet, what do you give that City Chic Cousin of yours? Don't worry lady, your Fab has got you covered.
n. Women's tight fitting calf-length pants developed in the 1950's with narrow, tapered legs. Fashion designer Emilio Pucci was on the Isle of Capri when he spied a woman in skintight calf-length pants. Thus, the Capri pant was born. One of its biggest fans was Jackie O.
