WHO'S YOUR BELLE? + HENRY & BELLE GIVEAWAY

Henry & Belle, a denim brand with the perfect balance of fit, fashion, and philanthropy, started and continues to be based on love. In 1931, a young designer named Henry Mann met a fitting model named Belle, and quickly fell in love and married. She became his muse that inspired him for every collection, as she gave her insight on fit, movement, and feel... A story that puts all Disney movies to shame.

We've got a lot of love for the Belles in our life, and a whole lot of love for these jeans. The second we tried them on, we both looked at each other as if we had fallen in love for the first time ever. We just knew this brand was the one. From the stretch (without ever stretching out) to the inseam to the rise, they are perfect.

And it got us thinking while we were posing for our photo shoot. Outside of our love/borderline obsession for our new pairs of jeans, who are the Belles in our life?

The Belles in my life are my mother and sister. They are two strong, independent women that have no limits to what they want from life. I talk to my mother every day just to chat, gossip, and ask for advice. She makes me feel stronger every day as a woman and always looks at everything in a positive light. She always let me be the hyper, creative kid that I still am today! (Can you imagine me any different?!) 

My sister is my absolute best friend - I never laugh like I do when I'm with her! She's an amazing mother and successful woman, and will always be my inspiration. And it's always nice to have someone you can have sister-ly arguments with and just hug it out afterward like nothing happened. - Jess

I am lucky enough to have two Belles in my life, my Momma and my late friend, Nikayla. My mom has always been my best friend and a huge supporter in all of my goals. My days aren't complete until we've conversed! Plus nobody can make me laugh like she can - everything she says in her Brooklyn accent is golden.

I am also extremely grateful to have had a friend like Nikayla, and even though her physical presence is absent, she continues to inspire me everyday. Just the thought of her laugh gets me through a bumpy road, and I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for her. - Jill

Jill is wearing Henry & Belle Coated Super Skinny Ankle in Royal Navy (c/o), 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target sweater, Theory blouse, Boutique 9 shoes, and sunglasses c/o Skirt PR.

  5. Well funny enough, my nickname is Belle! About 10 years ago, my best friend started calling me Belle & every since it has stuck. Each day I try to live my life inspired by all the other "Belles" around me: from the amazing teachers I work with to the friends I have acquired throughout my life. I hold myself to a high standard of inspiring others to live a full & beautiful life!

  12. I fully agree with you that you look trendy with your prescription glasses. Before few years back no one like these sunglasses but today people love these branded designer eyewear more. These glasses are able to protect your eyes and improve your eye vision.
