A few weeks ago I met up with a good friend of mine who has a fabulous closet of vintage, upcycled, American made and/or ethically-made clothing. We found this pair of jeans, by Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, that have a gold finish over the blue denim and began crafting some really awesome outfits.

Chica is really good at pogo in this casual spring/summer outfit.

Not Your Daughter’s Jeans is an L.A. based company with a mission to give women jeans that actually look and feel great. Their jeans come with a much lower carbon footprint because they are made in the U.S. and don’t have to be shipped as far as most jeans available on the market.  Additionally, you can also rest assured knowing that the people making the clothing are paid fair wages, unlike items that may come from say Bangladesh or China.

Yes, we were actually having a great time and a cocktail in the jeans as a dressed up warm weather version. (Look at the sheen on those pants! Aren’t they fabulous?!)

Those of you who have been TG readers for a while know I like to give a wide variety of outfits based on one item and this pair of jeans allowed us to do just that. The looks that could be created are endless, but let’s start with four, shall we?

Those shoes are fantastic!!

I love doing these clothing reviews for you guys. I hope you have as much fun reading it, as I did taking the photos and writing it. What would you pair with these jeans?

P.S. This pair are no longer available, but they do have a silver legging pair that could be paired with just as many things as the gold.
