'Be Not Afraid of [Wideness]'


The first time I saw these extreme vintage flares from Free People, I almost died! Instant love. But as luck would have it, they were sold out in my size.  Fast forward many moons later and Free People restocked them! Goes to show ya, never remove an item from your wish list if it goes out of stock. Leave it there for a few weeks and you just might see the lovely words 'back in stock'.

The BF got them for me after falling for them too.  LOVES!!

Of course I had to wear it with my 'it' tank of the summer (worn here, and here)!!





These babies are a tad bit long even with the highest heel (guess I'm the shortest girl in the world cause FP's fit model was obviously an amazon). So I'll have to select the places I wear these. Don't want to cut them off and don't want them dragging the nasty NYC ground. hmmmm....

FP did offer an excellent solution (click here for a DIY tutorial on how to cut off jeans and still have the frayed edges) but I'm too chicken to try.







What I'm Wearing:
Free People Extreme Vintage Flares (get yours here or at Bloomingdales here)
Tank:  Free People
Hat: Asos
Bracelets: Jade bangle from Hong Kong, JCrew friendships, NYC street vendor studded wraps, Bali name cuff
Necklaces: DIY body chain (under neath tank), Forever 21 Fringe, Jewel Mint fringe medallion
Ring: Carol Marie
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Lita's


And big thanks to Carla of Cougar Vintage for passing on to me the Tell Me About Yourself award! If you don't know her blog yet, pop on over to it and give it an eyeball and show her some following love :)  Click here to learn a lil about me and what blogs I'm currently digging!

  5. The location of the shoot is one of my favorite. Besides giving your shoot that rustic feel, it compliments your outfit. The whole look is amazing, but what really catches the eye is your one of a kind necklace…I too always leave things on my wishlist cuz you're right you never know when most times they restock them & they happen to be on sale.
