At ilovejeans.com we have our finger on the pulse! The tuxedo jean is a very flattering style as the black stripe down the side of the leg gives the illusion of a slimmer thigh and longer legs. A good style for the curvacious and long & leggy. Whatever your budget this is a style we can all buy into…..

DID YOU KNOW? Persia in the 1500′s was the birthplace of paisley, known then as the Boteh design quickly became known as the paisley print. Iranian weavers took paisley forward from approximately 1795. There was approximately one hundred years of shawl making involving the paisley and cashmere wraps. Scotland was the next stop for paisley. Scarves that once took a skilled Iranian craftsman three years to produce then could be produced in one week by a Scottish weaver. As in the past deep rich hues of paisley show off the design best. These are beautiful fall colors of reds, golds, cobalt blues and yellows sometimes created by weaving, printing or embroidery.
