Spotted out and about in London's Chelsea district last Friday: one sister-of-the-bride Pippa Middleton wearing her J. Brand 912 low-rise pencil-leg jeans in a dark vintage wash.
The party planner and It-girl paired her jeans with a loose-fitting short sleeve cream-colored ruffle blouse and mid-calf brown slouchy buckle boots. She carried a cream colored strappy leather handbag slung over her shoulder.
Let's see if Pippa has as much selling power as her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, shall we? Yesterday, after photos of Kate Middleton were published showing her wearing a $340 Reiss dress to meet First Lady Michelle Obama, the website totally fritzed out and the dress sold out across the world within just a few hours.
