Are you all out there seeing this really cheesy picture of me on this fine Wednesday?
Yeah? K, good. What a crazy week it has been and I know that it has been rough on several others as well so I want to take a moment and say, I feel ya, times are tough and knowing what the right decisions are is even more difficult. I have a listening ear over here if any of you need it. Seriously. I will camp my blog rv right over to your place if you need me to. I would also say, give it to God daily, hourly. He can make a way.
Nowwwwwwww.......on to Closet Confessions!
This installment (hehe) is inspired by my dear sweet cousin all the way over in Kenya! Love her! Anyway (cause I know you're dying to hear this story...focus) S. confessed her love for flares to me after CC #1 (that's closet confessions if you got lost there) though, she said she had given in briefly (and maybe a little half-heartedly) to the skinny jean.
(that's the sound I hear when my mental light bulb goes off)
Duh-huh....the next CC should be about the skinny jean! Thank you, thank you S. for the inspiration! This ones for you be-be....(in a not creepy, you are my wonderful cousin, kinda way)!
soooo.... about this skinny jean situation.... Like I said before, I am a flare jeans kinda girl, so when the skinny jeans first came out I was a little hesitant....but! I have to say, though not at the very top of my list, they may be in the top 5 for favorite styles. Not everyone feels comfortable wearing them and many say that it doesn't fit their body type, which may be true, but I feel more people are afraid of the trend than are "unqualified" so to speak.
"But I wouldn't know how to wear them if I tried, Elena." Oh, no? well here are some tips: You can style them like I did with a loose and long-ish sleeveless (or with sleeves) top and platforms like polyvore's version only with sandals. It is really fun when skinny jeans are paired with leather (via logicalharmony.net) be it a jacket or even leather boots! I like this vintage skinny jean look via Atlantic-Pacific too....ahhhhh red skinnies!!!
Of course I had to hippie my outfit out a bit.... lol but you could easily grunge this look up by switching out for a skull ring and darker make-up or make it more night-worthy with a dark blazer!
