Can a pair of jeans change your life?

I started this newsletter because I love jeans and because, Yes – I believe that finding the perfect pair can make everything from getting dressed to getting life done look and feel a whole lot easier. There is a reason so many people wear denim everyday. If you’re like me, it’s because there is nothing as eternally cool and undeniably hard-working as a pair of classic, five-pocket jeans. The ones I’ve loved most are well-worn and intimately connected to memorable times in my life – full of sentiment, the epitome of style, and so much more than a pair of pants.

About me: I am an editor and designer with 20+ years of experience in the fashion industry. I’ve worked at Vogue, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and Travel + Leisure, and for great American clothing companies like GAP and Theory. For years, I was the co-founder and creative director of, a fashion site about everything denim. I am currently the founder and designer of The Only Jane, an independent, denim-driven clothing line made in Los Angeles, California.
