Its crazy because I have a pair of jeans the color of Ms. Keys and I've been struggling to see what I can put with them..This looks helps with my inspiration to know what to put with the jeans!

There's a Martin + Osa in San Francisco and I've bought quite a few basics there. They're a nice quality and not expensive at all. A hidden treasure (but watch it, in this economy, because stores can't afford to get slept on for too long).

Alicia Keys always looks great but I think those jeans were a serious misstep. The bleaching on the thighs? Not flattering. It draws attention to the widest part of her body. Plus the faded beige-ey color is just kind of weird . . . reminds me of these hideous jeans I wore in 1995. Of course, that's just my opinion.
