    Good morning, Nini!

    Woow, you look like having mile-loooong legs!!!
    I´m at the moment truly in love with everything what´s grey 😉
    The color of your “tribute´s” is awesome!
    … and your American Apparel tee… always a great add…!!!!

  19. June 12th, 2009 at 03:31 | #19

    Hi! I absolutely love this outfit of yours!
    As for the jeans:
    I love the boyish cut- I would pair them with a very minimal tank and a strong, masculine blazer, but add the contrast of a ton of layered necklaces and some high platforms (preferably in a skin tone). Then wear my hair loose and long and paint my lips red!

  20. Amy
    June 12th, 2009 at 07:35 | #20

    I’ve just discovered your blog & love it! You have great style. I will now be following you on bloglovin!

  22. June 12th, 2009 at 08:00 | #22

    Great shoes!!

    I would definitely pair the C/E jeans with my new T Alex Wang tank I just got, my vintage white linen blazer and my Aldo laceup wedges.

  23. June 12th, 2009 at 08:46 | #23

    I’d try to strike a casual, put-together note by wearing a loose T, a drapey cardigan/shrug, navy peplum coat and Loubies on the bottom. Thanks!

  26. June 12th, 2009 at 09:56 | #26

    ooo I want a pair of Current/Elliot jeans! 😉

    Hmm how would I wear it? Because the jeans are a skinny fit, I’d go with a loose fitted tank- like the sexuality tank!

    I LOVELOVELOVE this outfit Nini!

    thanks for the giveaway! Every girl can always use an extra pair of great jeans!
    I would pair these jeans with a simple tank top that is colorful only because of the great embellishment already on the jeans!

  32. June 12th, 2009 at 10:33 | #32

    I would wear the Current/Elliot jeans kinda cuffed at the bottom so u could focus on my Christian Louboutin Hot Pink Prive shoes with my vintage Christian Dior boyfriend jacket and a AA tank underneath along with my mens timex watch n texas pendant necklace..

    LOVE THE AA shirts. i might go get one

  33. June 12th, 2009 at 10:52 | #33

You should add them to your collection :) I cannot wait to see your updates about your meeting up with Hanh.

    Oh I love these jeans sooo much! Current/Elliott is by far, one of my favorite jean designers. Especially in this style. Your YSL pumps are fabulous, by the way!

  41. meowen

    I would wear these jeans cuffed up and cinched in at the ankles with a freepeople double drape tank in white, anthropologie circus act bag and Matiko Vaughn Wedge in gray.

  44. Athena
    June 12th, 2009 at 14:58 | #44

    Hi Nini,
    I love the sexuali tees (and tanks) too. I have them in every color (I lucked out because my hubby is a t-shirt buyer)! I agree that they do drape so pretty & are so soft. I like how you paired it with your RO skirt. And of course I love your gray tributes!

    As for styling the Current/Elliot jeans I would pair them with my Elizabeth & James Tokyo Ikat Floral Silk blouse
    My grey taupe AA Sexuali tank underneath
    my neutral colored Steve Madden studded gladiator sandals
    AA light gray wool floppy hat
    & layers of necklaces for a flowy, earthy bohemian vibe.

    Thank you for the fun contest & have a great weekend! :-)

  45. June 12th, 2009 at 15:16 | #45

    i love your skirt!!!

  46. June 12th, 2009 at 15:31 | #46

    its a pity that we in the uk can’t take part, but its alright, the bonus is that we could still admire your style. the ysl really does comes in different colours. are you planning to own a whole range of colours of them?? i hope you do, as this would be a very lovely scene to see.

    i do think your party outfit stands out a lot with not only just black and white, but with the gold necklace and the gray pumps too.

  47. June 12th, 2009 at 15:57 | #47

    I love current Elliott jeans! It’s a shame it is not open to some of us!:(

    You look so amazing in your new gray YSL tribute pumps and that Rick Owens skirt!

    Have a fab weekend Nini.

    your outfit is very elegant and the grey ysls are gorgeous. You must really love them!

  49. June 12th, 2009 at 16:52 | #49

    this outfit is excellent. such a pretty silhouette! and the shoes speak for themselves! i tried on the crocodile ones and they’re just as beautiful, but those grey ones really pop!

  50. June 12th, 2009 at 16:54 | #50

    I would style them with either a long sleeve lace body suit or perhaps a leopard shirt and my new GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI boots . Maybe I will style them with the top I just won from your auction. Cant wait to receive it.

  51. Heather S
    June 12th, 2009 at 17:03 | #51

    I pair them with a vintage 30s crochet top I reconstructed + with pumps of course!

  52. Angel
    June 12th, 2009 at 18:47 | #52

    I would pair it with an oversized tee , some ysl pumps some really cool vintage jewelry. and a really nice pair of sunglasses.

  53. June 12th, 2009 at 22:22 | #53

    Fab giveaway and I love your new shoes! :) I find YSL amazing…their shoes are so well made and comfortable.

    I’d style the jeans with a Haider Ackermann draped leather jacket in olive suede and wear my Guiseppe Zanotti caged heels.

    June 13th, 2009 at 00:41 | #54

    Hi. Love your blog. I discovered it about a week ago, and have been tuning in ever since. Great style and tips! I have the sexuali tee in three colors. I love them! That said… I would pair the jeans ( cuffed) with my sexuali tee, Fiona Paxton necklace or a multi chain necklace I bought on Etsy and my Dior Bubble sandals. Some bangles and silver bracelets. Tom Ford sunglasses and my big Michael Kors bag.

  55. June 13th, 2009 at 01:35 | #55

    Well first off you look amazing, those YSL shoes are incredible and you wear them so well with that amazing skirt and tee. I follow you on bloglovin now, and I figure I should enter the contest because I only have 3 pairs of jeans (One’s a tight squeeze now too haha :/). But yeah I’d wear them with just about everything, but for sure in denim on denim style haha. :) Have a great weekend Nini.

  56. June 13th, 2009 at 02:45 | #57

    Hey babe!!! Love those new smokin’ gray tributes! Where did you manage to find them? I thought they only came in the slingback version? Yummy!

  57. June 13th, 2009 at 02:51 | #58

    Hey there Nini! I’m not sure if my previous comment actually went through but just in case it didn’t here it is again:

    I’d pair those current/elliot jeans with this VPL Smoking Bra http://www.iheartluxe.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/12/vpl-smoking-bra.jpg layered on top of this AA Unisex Opal Mesh Tank in Asphalt http://store.americanapparel.net/rsaoh400w.html

    Then rocking them with these Elizabeth & James Haley Buckle Wedge Sandals http://www.shopbop.com/haley-buckle-back-platform-wedge/vp/v=1/845524441845635.htm?folderID=2534374302073392&fm=browse-category-viewall

  60. cheritheberry
    June 13th, 2009 at 07:17 | #61

    the proportions of the long skirt mesh so well with your petite frame and overwhelming shoes.

    i’d wear current elliotts with manolo blahnik vella booties, a swing tank tucked in at the front and a great vintage belt paperbagging the waist.

  61. Emily
    June 13th, 2009 at 12:38 | #62

    I would pair these with a tucked in, flowy white blouse, a big gold pendant and some suede pumps!

  62. Kaycee
    June 13th, 2009 at 13:32 | #63

  63. Carrie Ann

  64. Jackie

  66. June 13th, 2009 at 20:08 | #67

    first of all you look amazing….I adore those tributes and the whole outfit couldn’t be cooler!

    those jeans would look amazing with those grey heels, a white flowy blouse, and a wide grey floppy hat!

  67. June 13th, 2009 at 20:16 | #68

    Lisa- I looked at their website but I can’t find the tee-shirt. I bought my at the Dallas store located in Northpark Center. You should call them to see if they can ship it to you.

  68. June 13th, 2009 at 23:54 | #69

    June 14th, 2009 at 23:51 | #72

  72. Val
    June 15th, 2009 at 09:42 | #73

    I think the jeans would go great with an oversized band tee (perhaps cut up a little bit), a long necklace and some heels!

Otherwise this is what i would do: I’d pair it with a short sleeve gray james perse button up shirt with tabs

    a small navy blue leather bag with gold accents

    nude giuseppe zanotti peep toe heels http://www.matchesfashion.com/fcp/product/giu-v-e96025-six100//giuseppe-zanotti-giu-v-e96025-six100-shoes/7720?colour=silver,

    With an oversized white V-neck from American Apparel, my years-old, gold sequin jacket and black platform wedges with rolled up cuffs to show them off. This being summer in San Francisco, I would wear my black pashmina scarf and a cropped, 3/4-sleeve jacket on top and cream-colored vintage driving gloves. It’s FREEZING here in the summer! Thanks for this contest!

  77. Melanie
    June 16th, 2009 at 08:58 | #78

    Love the jeans! I would pair them with a comfy, oversized tee, some pumps or ankle boots, and some fabulous jewelry/accessories!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  78. June 16th, 2009 at 09:22 | #79

    love the entire outfit! i have a long black skirt that i just haven’t gotten the chance to wear (lost it somewhere in my closet then it became too hot to wear) but i’m storing up inspiration for when the weather cools down 😉

    it’s much too hot to wear anything else except my alexander wang tank with the jeans, cuffed of course, with the ann d lace up sandal-boots. the winter is a different story.. i would pair it with the AA black mesh one-piece, a boyfriend-style black blazer, stella mccartney wedge booties, and tons of jewelry.

  79. Brit
    June 16th, 2009 at 15:16 | #80

    Current/Elliot is the rebel jean that has this punk-rock edge to it that I love. I like to mix my feminine style with this, therefore, I would add a cream color, detailed vintage blouse and a black boyfriend jacket as well. I may even add a cool headband, but I would have to see it on. Of course black pumps are a must : ).

    PS- That skirt is to die for. Rick Owens = makes me speechless. His work fascinates me because he focuses on details. I am searching for it now online…

  80. June 16th, 2009 at 16:46 | #81

    Can I do a polyvore look to enter the contest? I hope so, cause here it goes:


    I like this look cause the jeans are torn and t-shirt underneath play down the corset to make it a bit more casual. I love the shoes and bag!!! I would wear this outfit to an art show!
    Let me know what you think.

    p.s. i’m from Dallas too!

  81. June 16th, 2009 at 21:22 | #82


    I just recently found your blog and I LOVE your style! I made an outfit that I might wear with the current/elliot jeans: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=9564355

    I’m pretty simple, but like to pull it all together. Most of my outfits consist of jeans and a T with a long necklace and something extra to make it differnt, but for these jeans I might add a cropped blazer with an RM bag, possibly with my wine nikki to add some color, or the studded rocker that I’m waiting for to arrive! I also love funky heels, but with the blazer and the rips I think some classic pumps would look hot. :)

  82. June 17th, 2009 at 02:46 | #83

    You look so nice! I’m afraid my fashion sense is not as good as yours — I would probably pair the jeans with a white silk blouse, belt and some black low-heeled pumps. Nothing fancy.

    Talk is cheap, and picture means more than million of words: please visit the link to see how I am going to rock this current Elliot Jeans with pieces that already exist in my closet. I don’t have a pair of Current Elliot skinny jeans, but the jeans I had on is by antique denim, and you can picture the same look with just better pair of jeans, Current Elliot here I come:

    1)Look one: I would pair it with a roomy razor back T-shirt, high-heel, a hat, and my classic pumps or better yet the Fendi caged booties if I could afford another pair of shoes. This is a day look.
    2)Look two: I will pair it with a roomy destructed V-neck or just a slouchy v-neck T shirt in white or gray with my Jil Sander blazer with or without a skinny belt and a white or black envelop clutch, classic pumps. This look is for night.
    3)I don’t have any of the top mentioned above, but I pair them with what I have in my closet and it works:): http://fabfashfind.blogspot.com/2009/06/boston-and-contest-to-win-current.html

  84. June 17th, 2009 at 11:04 | #85

    Jesus! I loved your skirt! Your clothes is amazing!

  85. June 17th, 2009 at 15:21 | #86

    This look is so inspired by the Olsen twins. So chic and classic. One of your best looks by far.

    I’m new to the fashion blogging scene!

  86. June 17th, 2009 at 19:12 | #87

    I would wear the current/elliot with an alexander wang t. burnout sleeveless shirt and with an optional fitted blazer. The shoes I would probably choose would be stella mccartney mesh stilletos.

  87. Christine L.
    June 17th, 2009 at 23:36 | #88

    current/elliot jeans always seem so effortlessly chic yet so versatile and functional. For one look, I would pair them a simple tee by The Row or even American Apparel and have minimal accessories, like one great chunky watch or ring, and then top it off with a great pair of Givenchy’s or Alaia’s. Ideally, of course! :)

  88. June 18th, 2009 at 02:28 | #89

    I’d pair it with the ABS Boyfriend blazer, a slouchy Alexander wang racerback with a lacy bra peeking out, finish off with YSL Tribute pumps and a layered necklace.

    For the Current/Elliott jeans, I would go pretty simple because I want the jeans to be the center of attention. I would probably dress it up with a tee from Alexander Wang because they go well together. Maybe add a black blazer to top if off with some assorted jewelry. And for the shoes, your YSL tribute pumps would do =]

    I love current elliot jeans! I would pair this with a simple tee, like ones by The Row, and lots of funky jewelry…statement necklace and some great bangles! And to finish it off, some Lanvin flats.

    love your blog!
