    Eek! I’ve been so excited to share this with you!! Levi’s® featured me in a mini documentary promoting their Levi’s ® Curve ID system. It’s a feature about my life as a professional blogger, our family in San Francisco, and my experience trying out the Levi’s ® Curve ID system. I hope you like it. It was so much fun to be part of and such a crazy experience! A few people have said that they’ve seen the feature as an ad on HULU.  Holy Smokes!! Enjoy:

    So. Let’s talk about jeans for a minute, friends.

    What do you look for in a pair of jeans? Doing the feature really did make me more reflective in my jean selection process. Realizing mostly that I don’t give it nearly enough thought for something I wear everyday. I look for jeans that fit well, are flattering, comfortable, versatile, and of course affordable. Why are they so hard to find?! But, so crucial to my wardrobe that I can’t afford to go without a pair. I end up accumulating far too many pairs of jeans in the never-ending process of finding the perfect pair. Do you do that too or do you hold out for the perfect pair?

    And where do I even being about the low rise trend! Curses! Luckily, it seems that things are moving away from that direction. Phew. Levi’s®, for example, has three different curves which I found really useful when finding the right match for my shape. But low rise jeans are still the majority of my wardrobe and if if I had a penny for each time I was spotted pulling up the back to avoid revealing my behind to the world…It drives me nuts. What do you look for in a pair of jeans? What challenges you you typically face finding the right pair for your body?

    PS Here are the modern demi curve skinny Levi’s® jeans I was wearing in the feature

    Also.. stay tuned tomorrow for a few behind the scenes photos from the Levi’s shoot!

      Super awesome! I saved this in Reader until I had time to watch it. Really fun!

      After I saw your video (so cute!) I went to the Levi’s website to check them out. They have so much stretch and polyester in them – do you find the knees and butt getting stretched out every day? Do you have to wash them often?

    6. kendra said… February 16, 2012 7:34 pm

      your ass looks amazing in those jeans!

    7. Patricia Villamil said… February 16, 2012 6:00 pm

      this is awesome, congratulations!

    8. RIschel said… February 16, 2012 3:24 pm

      Your booty is totally levi-licious in these jeans! I can’t wait to see the commercial on Hulu.
      And Henry is the cutest.

      Yowza Liz! You rock so hard. This makes me want to meet you in real life.

      • Liz Stanley said… February 17, 2012 12:07 am

        I’d love to meet you too? Next time you’re in SF?

        • Liz Stanley said… February 17, 2012 12:08 am

          haa sorry that first ? was supposed to be a !!

    10. Meg T said… February 16, 2012 6:38 am

      I rarely comment, but couldn’t help myself today : ) You did an awesome job and look SO cute in those jeans!!! You seem so natural in front of the camera. Congrats! That is such a fun thing to have done.

    11. Andrea @ Strawberry-Chic said… February 15, 2012 9:42 pm

      Awesome video…and Yes you do look amazing in those jeans! I may need to try a pair “post” pregnancy 🙂

    12. Kristina said… February 15, 2012 6:17 pm

      Liz, seriously this is an awesome video. You are totally a natural on screen and look so adorable with your family. I love that the video is so real too. Doesn’t feel like an ad. Love the shots of you doing crafts with Henry. I definitely don’t look that cute wearing my mom blogger hat.

    13. Kelly said… February 15, 2012 12:57 pm

      My goodness! They picked the right person for this. Makes me want to run out and buy some of these jeans myself! Seriously cute.

    14. Hollis said… February 15, 2012 10:58 am

      This is so great!! Levi’s did a really great job allowing you to come off as you/real. Congrats!! Henry looks adorable, too.

    15. cal said… February 15, 2012 8:35 am

      I loved this video! They did a really awesome job of showcasing what you do as well as the jeans. Also very inspiring to see someone who really loves what they do!

    16. Whatever DeeDee Wants said… February 15, 2012 7:47 am

      Loved the video! It was a fun little peek into your life.
      I haven’t tried Levis in years, I am going to check them out again.

    17. Tina said… February 14, 2012 8:29 pm

      Awesome. I work at the Levi’s HQ in SF and follow your blog. Imagine my delight when I came across this post. So glad they have tapped into your blog and some others to promote a great product. Hope you had fun shooting, looks like you did some filming in the lobby store:-)

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 8:32 pm

        How funny! Small world, yes we did do some filming there, but at like 6am so not to disturb anyone!

    18. Janssen said… February 14, 2012 6:58 pm

      I love this darling little video. You are just SO cute (I can see more similarities to Spencer on a video than when I just see pictures of you). And good heavens, your apartment is gorgeous.

    19. Remedy Editorial said… February 14, 2012 5:59 pm

      Happy to visit your blog and see the Levi’s video up. Great memories.

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 8:20 pm

        Thank you so much for producing such an amazing video! You guys were incredible to work

    20. Heather said… February 14, 2012 4:58 pm

      What a great video- I usally only watch a snippet, but I watched this video from start to finish. I loved seeing your family, and the “day in the life of…” approach to the shoot was great.

      Oh, and I’m totally jealous that you look like that in jeans after having a kid. I’m “kidless” and still can’t pull off the skinny jeans that well!

      Also, I’m signed up for your ALT class tomorrow night. Can’t wait:)

    21. brooke field said… February 14, 2012 4:51 pm

      liz, i have loved your blog since i started blogging two years ago. and this video was awesome- to see you and hear your voice makes a difference. i would love to see a “home tour” post of your stylish home. future project maybe??!?

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 4:53 pm

        Thank you, Brooke! I love the idea of a video home tour. I’ll see what I can do!

    22. Alix said… February 14, 2012 3:30 pm

      Liz Stanley you are so dang cute in this video….and pretty hotsy totsy too, with your bad skinny jean wearin’ self! This is terrific. So cool and sweet and makes me want to run out and get some Levi’s too.

      Well done!
      xo

    23. Dottie said… February 14, 2012 3:00 pm

      This is wonderful! I love the way you talk about how your role change throughout the day but that your jeans make the transition totally seamless. I’m totally going to check out Curve ID now!

    24. Natalie Riha said… February 14, 2012 1:36 pm

      I saw this on Hulu yesterday! For being an ad for jeans it’s very inspiring to do what you love and do it well. Nice job!

    25. Stephanie @ henry happened said… February 14, 2012 12:58 pm

      Liz – this was so fun to hear your voice – I’ve always been a little intimidated by your put-togetherness 🙂 You look fantastic!

    26. Sarah Robertson said… February 14, 2012 12:57 pm

      So cool! You and your family look great in the video!

    27. Miggy said… February 14, 2012 11:44 am

      Liz! This is fantastic! You did such a great job. You’re a total natural in front of the camera, not to mention you look fantastic! Seriously…this was awesome. Yay!

    28. natalie @ The SoHo said… February 14, 2012 11:18 am

      This came out so great, and you’ve convinced me to try a pair!

    29. Cat said… February 14, 2012 10:43 am

      Everyone here at FM is super psyched about this campaign! You look gorgeous as usual!!

      Cat

    30. caroline said… February 14, 2012 10:28 am

      I love Levi’s Curve ID, I wear them almost exclusively. So comfy! You (and your family) looked so great Liz! I’m so happy for your success!

    31. Caroline said… February 14, 2012 9:41 am

      I loved it Liz. It was gorgeous. YOU are gorgeous. And not to mention, the most genuine person I’ve ever encountered with such success.

      …this made me want a pair of Levi’s NOW! 🙂

      x!

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 9:57 am

        Oh my goodness, thank you, I’m blushing. It was so nice to meet you at Alt Summit as well!

    32. Kacy Faulconer said… February 14, 2012 9:18 am

      Welp. I’ve seen you put your pants on now.

    33. Janelle said… February 14, 2012 9:17 am

      Eek! You are SO adorable! And forget jeans for a moment, your family is just the cutest family in the world. I loved seeing Henry run around the house.

      Ok, back to jeans, I think this was a good ad on Levi’s part. I’ll probably check out their curve ID thing now in the quest to find that ever-perfect pair of jeans.

      Also – this made me think that you occasionally need to do a vlog! Like, once a month or something.

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 9:56 am

        Well, it certainly is a compliment to the production company because I was anything but comfortable in front of that camera! I was sweating bullets the whole day!

        • scott compton said… February 14, 2012 9:20 pm

          Hey Liz –

          Scott here. Not true. You guys were awesome to work with. The film is an accurate portrayal of how generous and fun you, jared and henry were to work with. Glad you like the video. phew!

    34. Karen d said… February 14, 2012 9:11 am

      Love the denim shirt you have on in the fitting room….is that Levis as well? You and your family are adorable!

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 9:16 am

        Yup, they outfitted me up at the Levi’s store when we shot that section. Cute, huh!

    35. agirlandaboy said… February 14, 2012 9:11 am

      So cute, Liz. So, so, so, so cute. Great job!

    36. Stephanie Stuart said… February 14, 2012 9:05 am

      What a great piece, Liz! LOVE the emphasis on your life/balance as a mom and blogger. As always, you are inspiring.

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 9:16 am

        Thank you so much!

    37. Andrea Howe said… February 14, 2012 8:51 am

      You look great Liz. Levi’s was lucky to have you represent their line. 🙂 XO

    38. meredith said… February 14, 2012 8:50 am

      love it! i wonder if i could find some through them that fit my (nonexistent) booty. having a kid changes everything 😉 so cute! and it’s so fun to know you’re Erica’s sister in law too, she’s hilarious!

    39. Dalton said… February 14, 2012 8:48 am

      What a cool cameo. I just recently moved to San Francisco with my little family from the east coast, so it was so fun to see the city (and you and your family) in action.

      In terms of jeans and having way too many but none that really fit, I can totally relate. Especially after having two kids I feel like my body is still changing. Plus, wearing the jeans through as much of pregnancy as I could (and probably a bit longer than I should have…) they are all pretty stretched from the wear…. I also think with a lot of them I’m more stuck on the memory of how they used to fit; now after the journey they’ve been on they kind of sag in all the wrong places.

      But, with kids in tow, the thought of going into a place and having the time and patience to try on a bunch of jeans sounds a bit daunting…..
      You make Levis seem like a good option, though. Maybe you could just have them put a babysitting service in the dressing room (wouldn’t that be nice?!?!) 🙂

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 9:17 am

        Love that idea: babysitting at the Levi’s store. That would make such a huge difference, don’t you think?

        • Dalton said… February 14, 2012 12:58 pm

          Honestly I think it’s a win-win. Momma’s get to feel hip and stylish (which is a feat in itself!) and levi’s sales improve 🙂

          Also, I was just recently introduced to your blog. I love it! Smart and savvy with so many pretty things to look at. I was just looking at an old post which featured your three sisters. This made me like your blog even more…I’m one of four sisters as well. Sisters rock!

    40. Ashley Aikele said… February 14, 2012 8:46 am

      Liz! This is the cutest! Honestly. I love getting a little peek into your life.

    41. Jen said… February 14, 2012 8:32 am

      Woman, you are ridiculously cute! Loved the whole thing. And you rock those jeans.

    42. Jessica said… February 14, 2012 8:04 am

      With jeans I just tend to buy ones that fit well. I get the waist gap due to my curvy rear end, so if they fit well and are comfy, I buy them!

    43. Lexi said… February 14, 2012 7:56 am

      What an awesome feature! I loved getting to see you in a more ‘real’ way… so inspiring!

      And now I’ll be checking into some Levi’s, because I am still on the hunt for the perfect jeans 🙂

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 8:42 am

        Check them out, it was really fun to get fitted and figure out exactly what kind of jean fit my body type

    44. elizabeth said… February 14, 2012 7:41 am

      That is too cool! It’s really a great convincing sort of ad too- I’ll actually check out levis now. Hips and thighs are usually too roomy for me if the waist fits 🙁

    45. Erica said… February 14, 2012 7:34 am

      I loved seeing this documentary! I actually got Levi’s a year or so ago because I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit. They are always tight in the legs and huge in the waist. With their curve fits, I can finally get one that fits in both. And since I don’t wear jeans that often, I splurged on that one well-fitting pair. Totally worth it.

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 8:44 am

        Awesome! So glad you had a good experience with the Curve ID as well!

    46. Rebecca - A Daily Something said… February 14, 2012 6:40 am

      You are officially ADORABLE, Liz. Loved loved loved this little documentary. And now I want to wear Levi’s! 😉

      • Liz Stanley said… February 14, 2012 8:40 am

        You’re so sweet, thank you!
