MAY 20TH, 2008


Fresh off the heels of her first book, former model and denim maven Paige Adams-Geller shares her jean tips with Vitamin V:

Hang dry or air dry?
Definitely hang dry. If you put your jeans into the dryer too often the heat will blow out the lycra and they won't have any recovery.

How often do you wash your jeans?
Every three to five wears. If they have a lot of sanding or distressing I'd suggest washing less frequently though.

Low rise or high rise?
Typically, the most ideal rise for most bodies is one and half inches bellow the bellybutton.

How many pairs do you own?
One hundred and fifty pairs, at least. My friends are dying to come over to raid my closet.

Do you remember your first pair?
I was a real girlie-girl and all I wanted to wear were sundresses and pantsuits.

What about your worst pair?
A pair of red and charcoal grey thick striped skinnies with zippers at the ankle. Hideous.

A favourite pair?
My black Paige Blue Heights skinny jeans.

Your Perfect Fit ($14.40) is available at Chapters.
