You know what first I said to Florence when I heard that Velvet by Graham and Spencer, the California lifestyle brand that does some of the best knitwear in L.A., was getting into women’s denim? “Well, it’s maybe about time!” Because what goes better with Velvet’s casual, can’t-buy-just-one-color tees than jeans? And who but the company’s creative directors Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer could make ones that compare to those tees in softness, quality, and ease? The thing I said next, “I need to try a pair.”

Now, good fashion followers, I know what you’re thinking. Skinnies are over. (Aren’t they?) Not until daily life – and the dozens of shoes in my closet – stop relying on them to function properly – no! Put me in a pair of skinny black jeans that stretch, streamline, and look like this with a cashmere sweater and kitten heels, and I’m a happy camper. I’m also appropriately dressed for work and weekends, which makes Velvet’s skinny a godsend to girls like me who love a uniform we can wear both on- and off-duty. My advice: dry clean only to keep them looking sharp. Like you in them. Worth it!
