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?



h&m icon leather jacket (lust)
alexander wang t-shirt
j brand jeans (similar)
givenchy pumps
givenchy bag
jennifer meyer necklace
hermes bracelet
pamela love talon cuff
madewell bracelet
vintage necklace, ring, and bracelets


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

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

Sarah ( May 1, 2013 at 5:55 am )

    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

Joy ( April 27, 2013 at 11:00 am )

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

    yvonne ( April 28, 2013 at 12:42 pm )

I love your jacket 😉

Charmeuse ( April 27, 2013 at 7:43 am )

Haha, no you got all the catchphrases! Love Rachel Zoe, but love your look even more! Those jeans! OMG… I could never pull them off.. You, of course, look stunning. I love the leather jacket! I haven’t seen it in store, but Im going to check it out tomorrow! Have a lovely weekend, Yvonne! xo

    i kind of have a leather jacket obsession a the moment, so i think this one is actually a good deal for how high end it looks

    yvonne ( April 28, 2013 at 12:45 pm )

This is my perfect kind of outfit. I love the jacket and the bell bottoms are fantastic. Gorgeous!

Ahka Vintage ( April 22, 2013 at 8:37 pm )

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

Terry Kim ( April 22, 2013 at 8:02 pm )

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!

Jess L ( April 22, 2013 at 6:35 pm )

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

What a fantastic jacket! Very Balenciaga-ish. The jeans make your legs look miles long.

Joanna ( April 22, 2013 at 11:21 am )

    i think that’s why i had to get the leather jacket. totally a balenciaga inspired piece with a small price tag
