Pumps & Pleats: Dress your ego in style

Story and photos by Michèle De Meglio

Sometimes a pair of basic Levi’s just won’t cut it. In those instances, opt for some bling on your jeans.

It’s All About Me Now, a new women’s apparel and accessories boutique just steps from Marine Park, offers affordable designer denim that looks like a million bucks.

Many of these trendy jeans, retailing for $40 to $50, are decorated with rhinestones and shiny hardware on their back pockets. Several pairs boast clear and gold crystals, giving a diamond effect. You’re sure to attract attention when walking into a club in these sparkly skinnies!

If you’re more into Rihanna’s tough girl look than Beyonce’s bling appeal, try a pair of stonewash jeans with matte black studs covering the back pocket. Now that’s rock star style!

Even the brand names are cool — LA Idol, Machine and Ecko Red. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to wear a pair of pants made by Flying Monkey Jeans?

It’s All About Me Now isn’t all about denim. The boutique carries of-the-moment handbags, jewelry, tops and sweaters. There’s also a slew of perfect party dresses.

A slinky black sheath gets a hard edge thanks to a strip of leather and silver studs. An added bonus, it’s less than $47!

Feeling blingalicious? Get a similar cocktail dress blending black satin with big and bold crystals ($46).

With these fresh styles and wallet-friendly prices, Pumps & Pleats has just one thing to say — gimme some bling!

It’s All About Me Now is located at 3102 Avenue U. For hours call 718-513-6665.
