(Sponsored) Lotus Premium Denim

I was sent a pair of skinny jeans from a new denim company called Lotus Premium Denim- based in the Bay Area. They decided on the name Lotus because the Lotus flower’s story is compared to their story… the lotus grows from the mud and promises to bring beauty and potential despite the murkiness. Lotus was created by six young entrepreneurial women who already have day jobs with fifty to sixty hour work weeks and have families to take care of too. These women are a mixed pot of immigrants and first-generation Americans who have faced and overcame some of the hardest of adversities. Lotus Denim is a start-up has had minimal funding, but has grown on passion and drive. Since their launch in November of 2011, this philanthropic company has been giving back to their community. They have donated 5% of the profits to charities like City Year, Career Closet and Somaly Mam. That is an incredible feat seeing as they are still a blooming company- with kindness of heart. This kindness of heart that these women have translates in their clothing, which are made to clothe inspiring women all over the world.

I received the “Inspire” jean in indigo blue. The jeans fit amazingly well and are very slimming (not to mention making my ass look fantastic). Though just to be clear folks, {when you see the pictures below} the jeans look like peddle-pushers (semi-crops) on me, while compared to the model, they look normal on her. The reasoning for that is because the model is shorter than I am and I was given a 28″ inseam jean. Though taller people fear not! They do offer a 30″ inseam as well. But it goes to show that no matter the inseam with Lotus Premium Denim, they will always make you look long, lean and best of all- confident!

Anara Original Cocktail Ring

Huge thanks for the ladies at the Delaware-based brand Anara Original for sending me one of their cute cocktail rings to review. Anara Originals was founded in 2002 by Sara Crawford, who’s goal was to create vintage-inspired and urban couture for both men and women. Sara graduated with a B.A. from the International Academy of Design and Technology in under three years and is a testimonial that being somewhat visually impaired has not stood in the way of her goals. After working with such names as Tommy Hilfiger and H&M, Sara decided to create her own brand that was an expression of who she was. The name ‘Anara’ is derived from ‘Sara’ and her middle name ‘Ann.’ She has a knack for turning ordinary pieces into extraordinary works of wearable art. For example, the ring that I know have. It’s apart of the ‘Button Ring and Brooch Collection.’ Inspired by a box of buttons that belonged to her Grandmother, Sara clusters buttons and brooches of all shapes and sizes and creates lovely masterpieces to wear on your fingers. The vintage-inspired collection is made with love and her Grandmother’s amazing style in mind. I love little chunky button ring! It’s oversize and has an adjustable band. When I wear it, I try to style my wardrobe around the color of one button each time, so it’s not too overbearing. The ring is a statement piece after all! For more information, check out AnaraOriginal.com and their cool blog, The Trendsetter, which has inspiration and pictures of new inventory.

(Sponsored) Halter Top Maxi Dress from Reverent Style

I was excited when a rep from Reverent Style tapped me on the shoulder to do a review for one of their product on ReverentStyle.com. Reverent Style is the latest online retailer to hit the young contemporary market with nothing over $100. They feature apparel, accessories and jewelry from designers including: Ya Los Angeles, Lush, Moon Collection, Everly Clothing, October Sky and C. Luce. Their vision is to be enablers for young women to express their unique and independent self through personal style. Now, usually I’m somewhat hesitant on ordering anything online (as I like to try on first), but I decided to give it a shot. I check out the site and choose the Halter Top Maxi Dress by Ya Los Angeles. When I received the package, the dress was nicely folded and packed in a plastic envelope. The dress was even better in person! The quality was excellent. The colors and patterns were radiant and the small fit perfectly and true-to-size. One word of warning, the dress is NOT lined, so you will probably need a little somethin-somethin to cover up under the dress. A white strapless slip would work perfectly! I’m 5’7″ and the dress went down to my ankles. Since the dress is comprised of a cotton/polyester blend, it is advised that it be hand washed in cold water and hang dried only. So, for a mere $45 for the Halter Top Maxi Dress, you won’t break the bank for great quality and getting compliments EVERY time you wear it (like I did)!
