Ahhh I’m so excited to share that I had an opportunity to connect with Dede Raad from DressupButtercup. If you follow her, you already know she’s the sweetest human and truly pours her heart into everything. I ordered her Detre denim jacket launch last October because I’ve been wearing the same denim jacket since 2005 when I started working at American Eagle. I think that speaks to just how much of a staple having a denim jacket is. They’re classics that you’ll wear for yearssssss. Great news for Dede and anyone searching for the best denim jacket, she is relaunching her denim collection TOMORROW! You can read more about her story below. I feel so freaking honored to be included in the jacket review!!!!
I still can’t even believe that she selected me as one of the girls to chat with to get feedback on the jacket. I had a google meet virtual chat with her a couple of weeks ago. She scheduled it for 15 mins, but we chatted for 35 and I did not want to end the call! We had so much fun chatting style, mom life, and EMILY’s wedding, haha! Our call was two days following Emily’s wedding weekend so it was fresh on our mind. Olivia even got to meet Dede AND Jet! It was so cute!!!
Below is the picture I submitted and links to shop my outfit. I copied this excerpt straight from Dede’s post that she published yesterday. If you’re interested in ordering the denim jacket, set your alarms for 11:11AM and read below to get all the deets!
Detre Everyday Denim Jacket: The Details
The everyday denim jacket is COMING BACK! So freaking excited to share this with y’all. I created this jacket with you in mind—I wanted to bring you a well-made jacket that fits well, feels great, and makes you feel amazing when you wear it. This line was named after the birth name my parents gave me, Detre! With my dad being an artist & my mom being a flight attendant, they wanted me to have a unique name to carve a unique path. Last year we dropped these everyday denim jackets and they sold so much quicker than we ever thought they would. With so many asking for a restock, we knew we had to bring it back. These are only available on shop.detre.com in XS-3XL and the drop is this Sunday, October 17th at 11:11am CST so mark your calendars & add it as a bookmark to head over when the time comes!
The Everyday Denim Jacket is a light wash denim jacket with a slight crop & oversized fit. I wanted to create a denim jacket that was flattering & makes you feel confident. The oversized fit gives you room for comfort but doesn’t take away shape & is a great addition to any wardrobe! I wanted the details to be perfect so we had buttons custom made with “Detre” on them & a gold tag that has our signature on it. The jacket has a raw hem for a casual look & with every wash becomes softer & offers a more lived in look & feel!
The jacket was curated to have a naturally oversized look so if you prefer the oversize fit, I would order your normal jacket size (for reference I normally am a small & I wear a small everyday denim jacket). If you prefer a more fitted look then order down a size. We loved the look of the 80s denim jacket with a balloon sleeve so we incorporated bit of that fit into ours. The jacket fits true to size, but depending on how oversized you want it to be, you can size up or down. We asked some of the girls who ordered the jacket to give a little review so you can see what the different sizes look like on different body types and hear how they fit and style them below!
