Shoes: (just seen, Stuart Weitzman)
Trying on these jeans for the first time, I did feel a little bit like I was going back in time - I mean, I remember owning flares in the 90's when I wanted to look like Kaley Cuoco in 8 Simple Rules (remember that show?! I think it even encouraged me to own brown cords at one point...but we won't go there). Once I'd gotten over my fear of looking like my 10 year old self (and slight nostalgia) I looked in the mirror and just fell in love with them! I am a short person, I can't deny that. At 5"5 the majority of people I come into contact with I have to look up at and this is what I love about flared jeans - you put a pair of heels with them (hidden under that lovely wide bottom) and no-one has to know you're a short arse! I instantly looked tall - how could I send a pair of jeans back that did that?! I can't...exactly. So they stayed :).
How do you like the styling? I really like Kimono/Wrap jackets with flares, it adds a lot of shape which is lovely and I might try them with a little basic sweater.
What do you think?
