We love our Level 99 denim and we know you do too! So, how can we make our favorite jeans last?
Well, our biggest tip is to stop washing them with every wear. The less we wash our jeans, the better they really do become. Denim shapes to our body, and when we wash them, we not only lose that shape, but we are working our way to destroying our favorite pair with every wash. We’ve not only heard this from designer Tommy Hilfiger, but also from Carl Chiara, a director at Levi Strauss. Carl explains that washing causes the fibers of the denim to swell and bloom, which shrinks the jeans, and the heat destroys the overall quality. With that being said, we really need to avoid hot water and drying machines.
Then how do we care for our denim and keep them smelling fresh and looking amazing!? Here are five tips directly from the experts:
We all hate that moment when we have to toss out our favorite pair of Level 99 jeans and replace them with a brand new pair that we have to break in all over again. Well, now that you know these expert tips on how to make your denim last longer, rest assured if you follow them, your Level 99 favorite will be able to hang in your closet a lot longer.
If you haven’t had the experience of a Level 99 favorite pair of denim yet, check out our selection in-store or online. Once you try on a pair of these jeans, there's no turning back! They are not only comfortable, but they make you look amazing! And now you know how to make them last.
At the AOL NewFront event in New York City on Tuesday, Nicole Richie showed off this Anthony Vaccarello dress with an eye-catching new hemline. This gold-studded black dress has very short sides and then drops into a triangle point on the front and back. Is this the new hemline we'll be seeing down the road for 2014?
A look back at the history of the hemline shows us that the length of the women's skirt or dress indicates the wealth, prosperity, and general wellbeing of the times. In the 1920s, we all know the well-known flapper dress with dropped waist. This time was all about freedom and social progression, creating a shocking above-the-knee length. Then the length of the hemline came crashing down with the Great Depression of the 30s. No more risk taking because of the lack of money and modest hemlines dropped to the floor. During the 1940s and 50s, caution took hold from the post-war mood but because of the advance in social restraint, the hemline rose slightly and the mid-length skirt became popular. With the rise of fiscal prosperity in the 1960s, and the era where teenagers took center stage, shorter hemlines came back pushing new boundaries. Then came the 1970s and the disco era. Floor-length maxi skirts became popular during this time of social and economic discontent with the onset of the Vietnam War, inflation, and the oil embargo. Next came the feminist movement of the 80s and a break from fashion dictating only one hemline length. Women's hemlines became an individual choice whether maxi, midi, mini, or anywhere in-between. This still holds true for the 2000s.
Last year the popular mullet-dress (hi-lo hem) was popping up all over the red carpet and fashion runways and we're not sure what this said about 2013 (because of the varied length) but we continue to see this popular trend in early 2014. We are eagerly waiting to see what the next hemline trend will be that takes its place later this year. Will it be this hemline caught on Nicole Richie? Time will tell.
What are your thoughts on this hemline? What do you think will become the hemline trend for 2014?
COMING SOON; VERY SOON!

Arriving on or about Tuesday, March 19,
Let us introduce you to our favorite shoe line – Miz Mooz. They began as a small, New York based, private label. Our buyer has been consistently attracted to the playful and eclectic styling of Miz Mooz shoes. Season after season, Miz Mooz has proven their commitment to the principle that a shoe can be fashionable and comfortable at the same time. We love the colors, retro styling and the cushioned footbed. They look good and feel good!
WHAT’S IN A NAME
You may wonder how they came up with the name Miz Mooz. Well, it turns out that aside from rolling off your tongue, “Miz Mooz” is a play on the Hebrew word for foreplay: “Meez Muz”. The name is not the only Israeli connection. Miz Mooz also draws from Israeli footwear brand “Gazith”. Gazith is more of a sister brand than the Israeli Miz Mooz brand. Miz Mooz shoes share the same inspiration as Gazith, but the line is altered significantly to make it more suited to the Miz Mooz market. The Israeli shoes are a bit more extreme!
BE THE MOST UNIQUE YOU, YOU CAN BE
The unique distressed look of Miz Mooz footwear is created in a finishing process. Most shoes are made on a production line and are then placed in boxes and shipped to customers Miz Mooz has a team at the end of the line that polishes or distresses the product to the desired look, whether it is an extreme distressing with sandpaper or just a light burnishing with polishes. Each pair gets its own unique look through this process. It is a traditional way of making shoes — more hands on and less automated.
MIZ MOOZ FOR MEN
In Spring 2010 Miz Mooz launched a men’s line of shoes: Walker & Whyte footwear! Walker & Whyte is versatile and durable with a touch of urban edge. Just like Miz Mooz, Walker & Whyte is based out of New York.
LET COLOR SET YOU APART

The high low dress is becoming very popular! It is so versatile and fashion forward and is
a wardrobe must-have. If you’ve tried a
maxi dress and not liked the way you looked or perhaps felt like you were drowning in all that fabric, try a high low
dress. You may be pleasantly surprised
at the difference. There are high low
dresses that are asymmetrical with one side higher than the other and some that
are short in front and long in the back.
There are so many different ways to pair this dress with your other
wardrobe pieces. You can actually
stretch your fashion dollars while creating many different looks from this one little dress!
