The satchel was created in the 17th century to carry books in prior to the invention of the backpack. Since then they have evolved into stylish accessories and carried women from the streets of Brooklyn to the coasts of California.

She’s Got Good "Jeans"

July 13, 2009

Good genes may be hereditary, but good jeans come with good taste! Finding a pair of jeans for you is all about knowing what fits, what looks good, and what you like. As the old saying goes, “just because they make it in your size, doesn’t mean you should wear it”. Find a pair (or two) of jeans that complement your body, offer a good fit (no gaping at the waist, no sagging, no zipper bursting), and doesn’t hurt your pockets!
