'The Plain Single Vow...'


I am constantly trying to find heels high enough to keep these Free People Extreme Vintage Flares (worn in the Summer here) from sweeping the ground. I really adore their swish, their overall cut, color and the fringe bottom so I'm too much of a wuss to cut them off.

I paired them this time with this crochet arm tee and my jacquard crystal waist jacket (first worn here) that barely sees the light of day (mainly because I keep forgetting about it). Btw, I took these pictures back in November when it was still a bit warm out (yup, warm in November).

I so swear to you ladies, I will shop in my closet from now until my birthday in April! (But of course being the gentle women that ye all are, you'll not fault me if I stray from my vow now and again...teehee)











What I'm Wearing:
Jacket: Arden B
Pants: Free People Wide Leg Extreme Vintage Flares
Shirt: Free People via Bloomingdales
          Orig. Price: $68.00
           Paid: $37.00
Shoes: Betsey Johnson via Zappos
Ring: Carol Marie
Necklace: A Peace Treaty




Absolutely NEEDING these glitter booties from To Be Announced. If they become low in-stock, I may have to break my vow. I'm sure you all understand though, right?

  4. So retro chic. I love the jacket and the necklace. I too always make those vows and never keep them, but, they do make you cut down so it's better than not making them :). I just found out about TBA and they have great shoes. Miu Miu like.

  53. You definitely wear those Free People flares well and may I reserve the right to be the 1st in line to purchase that amazing jacquard Arden B jacket you've got on. I myself am trying to be good until Spring, but damn it to hell these sales keep popping up everywhere & what's a girl to do, but dip her hand in the cookie jar when she's not supposed to lol.
