shut the front door

posted by on 2013.04.21, under outfits


after catching up on a dvr’ed marathon of my favorite tv show, the rachel zoe project, i was finally convinced to dust off my bell bottom jeans. why did i stop wearing these anyway? they literally elongate the legs and balance out the hips like no other. these jeans are bananas. by the way, how maj is this h&m leather jacket from the new icon collection? not going to lie, it’s kind of my favorite piece from this collection. when i found it on the rack this week, i literally died.

ok, that’s all the rachel zoe catchphrases i can think of right now. did i miss anything else?

    despite everyone’s love for skinnies (me included) i have to say that bell bottoms are awesome and always so flattering. you look great!

  • Sarah

    What size did you get the jacket in? :) Feel mine is too big…

    • yvonne

      i had to go down one size from my normal size as well. it’s a little snug on me, but my usual size is a little big and i know leather will stretch the more you wear it.

    Another perfect outfit <3 You look great !!

    That is my favorite show as well and I always feel inspired to wear my long flares after watching! This pair looks fantastic on you! I love how flattering this silhouette is and it’s hard to go back to skinny jeans afterwards! xo

    lovely basic outfit. I saw that jacket at H&M and it feels so soft and luxurious, yet structured & sturdy. Then I gasped at the price, but it’s 100% leather, so that’s cool.
    And I want new flared jeans, because mine are hemmed too short (sobs) lol

    • yvonne

      i really think that it’s not a bad idea for a soft leather jacket. you should get it!

  • Charmeuse

    I love your jacket ;)

  • Victoria // Oh So Pretty

    you look so chic! flared jeans will never go out of style. they definitely elongate the legs which is crucial for shorter girls like me ;)

    ahhh i LOVE your givenchy nightingale handbag.

    Love Me to Pieces

  • Jess L

    Your entire outfit is bananas! <3 I have a lot of flares but no bell bottoms left in storage. I'm so used to the skinny jean silhouette so it's hard for me to switch back but I really love the jeans on you!

  • h² fashion

    Love the leather jacket. It goes great with the wide leg pants, almost a mix of soft and hard.

  • Meghan
