The only thing consistent about denim is that it will always be on trend, and the one thing I’ve learned about denim is that they no two jeans are ever alike.

Collaborating with Red Malt Denim, a local Chicago company who started back in 2011 with a vision to create quality custom-fit jeans was beyond fun. I finally found a local brand that embodies American manufacturing and addresses its customers individual fit. The pair of denim I’m wearing it tailored exactly to my body size, and I must admit: I’m smitten. There’s no better way to show off your favorite heels than with a pair of denim.

And speaking of collaborations: Nothing brings me more joy than supporting other local entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur myself I can only hope that our community understands the importance of supporting one another. Going after your dreams does not only require confidence, hard work and persistance but frankly a great support system as well.

As always, thanks so much reading & have a wonderful Tuesday!

Much love.

    I’m loving these jeans, Vanessa! They look super comfy and so good to know it’s like a customized fit. Jeans can be hard to shop for, so you really need to hold on to this pair, what a find! Happy Tuesday!

    I love how rich these jeans look; the wash and fit are perfection! I love how you cuffed them and paired them with these lovely brown booties, too. Speaking of brown, I’m LOVING this lip color on you, Vanessa! You look gorgeous as always, my dear friend, and I couldn’t agree more about supporting one another. There’s certainly enough glitter in the jar for everyone, so I never really understand the huge amount of competitiveness there is. The only one we should ever compete with is ourselves, by trying to be better and do better than we did yesterday. We all have so many things to offer and we all need each other in one way or another. Such a great post, beauty; you look amazing in those jeans! Sending lots of love and a big hug your way!

    You are doing this denim pair loads of justice V ?. Finding the right pair of jeans with the right fit can be a struggle sometimes, this one is a keeper for sure. I love the dark shade and how it contrasts with the shirt…..the booties too ?. Am also loving the growth in your photography love, the sky is the limit doll.

    And that quote is the truth right there ; no one is an island….it doesn’t hurt to support each other where you can.

    Have a good day. ?.

    I totally agree with you that no denim is similar to the other. On that note you look so rad in the denim on denim outfit, your shoes are totally a show stopper!! The photo location captures the whole denim look theme and you nailed it V!! I agree with you that people should look out for each other and collaborate more so that we can help each other grow!!

    Ahhh love this denim on denim look! I think it’s fun how different shades of denim can feel completely different and express a different mood or tone of an outfit.

    wow that denim looks just too perfect on you and it looks so amazing, like a perfect pair of jeans of a high quality ๐Ÿ™‚ The combination of that denim in denim look is just fabulous – and you’re right – always on trend! you can never go wrong with denim looks :3 Combined with that boots you just nailed the look and totally rock it ๐Ÿ˜€ Love that from head to toe ๐Ÿ™‚ So happy that we see more posts of you now *_*
    And you’re so right, it’s always a good thing to look at the local shops and small ones, too, not just the huge brands. It’s so important that there are many small, unique brands not just the typical H&M, Zara, Mango stores, and we have to support them *_* And take care of each other ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re really such a beautiful person, inside and out! Can’t wait to meet you here in germany xoxo

    When I was ten my mother would never allow me to wear my “church shoe heels” with my jeans; I couldn’t wait to be adult enough to wear heels and jeans. I’m still in love with the look today, and you are nailing it here! Hugs, Kait
