Do It With Flare

I don't think I'd be alone if I said that shopping for jeans sucks. Most anyone can attest to the losing feeling of trying on a million pairs only to find one pair that works.  That's partially why I prolonged my thrift scour through the jeans section for as long as I could. I tend to avoid headache inducing activities, or at least I try to avoid participating long enough to induce the headache, the operative word being try.

When I finally gave in (c'mon we knew I would) the least likely outcome occurred; I THRIFTED a pair of GAP Jeans that fit like a dream. GAP 1969 jeans to be exact. Yea, not quite the climax you were expecting, but seriously friends...GAP jeans never fit me!! A clean dark wash, a modern flare, no hemming necessary and only $7.99 at Salvation Army - now I'd say that's a pretty IN'JEAN'IOUS deal! Yea, I took it there.

Since I love to try out different styles I thought my new jeans would be the perfect anchor piece for the summer 2011 trending 70s inspired look, then I scored this cream crochet macramé crop top for $3.99 at Salvation Army and I knew it was a done deal.  I wore it with my newly thrifted Rachel Rachel Roy platform clog booties (last seen here), thrifted red leather purse, thrifted bracelets, H&M teardrop earrings, and Forever 21 felt floppy hat. The good vibrations were free.

Which do you prefer, flares or skinnies?

  1. The jeans look fabulous on you and I like how you styled them in a '70s way with the hat, platform shoes and lace top. I haven't worn jeans regularly in 4 years but I used to buy all my pants/jeans at GAP, they were the only brand that actually fit me well!

  2. @Leilani - Thank you!! I hardly find jeans that I like and rarely ones that fit me well at the GAP. I'm so happy to have found a pair!
