Who said bell bottoms were out of style? I absolutely love jeans that are tight from hips to knees, and all of a sudden, make a dramatic flare. Paired with a loose fitting top or even a tank top tucked in - the illusion it gives is amazing. Welcome to the tall-girl club - even if you're a fake.
I'm loving these Rachel Zoe Corduroy Flare Pants. Sorry to say - I can't find them anywhere; but, I highly doubt I will be wearing these on 90˚ Summer days.

A+OI purchased this pair of Alice + Olivia Bell Bottom Jeans in white last year at Cusp [on sale :o) ] and
|I expected so much more out of this MacBook camera.|
|AND this is why I could not fit into them - size 0???|
Diet and exercise!!!
I'll definitely post a mirror pic of these whenever I get around to wearing them in a complete ensemble. I understand that so many people think this look is outdated, but it is so much fun and draws great attention to the legs. Now that I've been working out and feeling a bit more confident in my skin I love to show off the shape of my legs. Even though they aren't perfect yet, the progress is enough for me to be proud of! A great pant/skirt is everything to me this Summer and I can not wait for the sexy weather to make its way into the District. We need it.

I have one down the street from my house and decided to stop by to stock up on my Aquilina Pink Sugar perfume. I have no idea if they are discontinuing the fragrance but on my last visit to Sephora, the sales person told me they weren't restocking. I ran across the street to Nordstrom Rack, I've seen it there a dozen and a half times, and yanked it off the shelf - just in case (hoarder much?)
Of course...the shoe aisle was calling my name. iDie for a bit of a steal, but seeing as I have my summer semester to pay for in one week - I put my blinders on and walked through the tall rows of shoes.
Rezamou's birthday was about 2 weeks ago and while I was walking back and forth through the shops trying to find him something - obviously in the women's shoe department ??? (lol - oops!) I saw these darling booties on sale at Bloomies. Seeing as I am not all that selfish - I decided to put the money towards Reza's gifts (which he returned the next week lol) and leave the booties behind. sigh
God works in mysterious ways when it comes to shoes.
So, on my visit to Nordstrom Rack, what did I spot? The very same boots I saw at Bloomies; but, these babies were not priced at $170.00.
Just goes to show that a walk through an outlet might leave you beaming from ear to ear.
