If you have been a long time reader of this blog then it should come to no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Urban Outfitters. I was so excited and honored to have gotten invited the BDG Fall 2012 Preview. I remember when I got my first pair of BDG jeans and how I LIVED in them. I wore them so much that they started to tear at the knee (not that I cared) but it was when I put on my college weight and grew some hips is when I had to toss them. It was like losing a close friend because really there is nothing like a good worn in pair of jeans. That's why I love BDG jeans so much, they are fitted but yet comfortable. I hate starchy jeans and BDG are really anything but. Their texture is soft and light with a comfortable fit. This fall they are bringing out the show stopper denim prints: floral, horse, leopard, galaxy, feather, and more. Fun is Urban Outfitters game and they aren't shying away from it this coming season. I fell in love with the tie-dye effect denim along with the Isabel Marant look alikes, find the real deal here.
It wouldn't be an Urban Outfitter event without some cool girls doing cool things. They had three tables set up for DIYs: studding, lace bleaching effect, and fabric painting. Of course each guest got a pair of jeans to DIY (if we wanted too). I was really in awe of the lace bleaching effect. Many of the girls who picked out the red cigeratte jeans decided to try this. All they did was take some lace fabric, laid it over the jeans and sprayed a mixture of bleach and water over it. This created a cool bleach lace look.
Of course since I don't have the most comfortable or decent pair of floral jeans (my Delia*s jeans aren't cutting it-- my 25 year old body does not fit into teen jeans) I decided to go with the floral BDG. I'm so in love with the bold dark print. I also decided not to DIY them...I might have to try the bleaching effect on another pair of old jeans though.
What do you think of the BDG Fall 2012 Preview? Will you be buying any printed jeans this fall?
