Bell Bottoms

You’re probably wondering why my pictures are being taken indoors.  Well, the weather has been slightly bipolar here in NJ.  One day it’s beautiful out, the next day it’s freezing/raining/snowing.  Guess what kind of weather it usually is when I want to take some outfit photos?  Yup, you guessed right, it’s usually windy, cold, and either raining or snowing.  The worst is when it’s overcast and I think yes, this is awesome it’s perfect photography weather and then as soon as I am done getting ready it starts to downpour for the rest of the day.  So if you see any pictures indoors, that’s why.

Anywhoo, moving on!  I bought my first pair of Bell Bottoms a few weeks ago!  There’s this consignment store by me that has amazing clothes!  They have designers and I even found a pair of Nike platform sneakers (the ones with the heel) for $20!  That’s insane because those shoes are originally $200.  I love my designers, but I also love finding goodies in consignment shops.  The one I went to is called Plato’s Closet.  For those of you in Jersey, if you are in Morris County it’s in Ledgewood!  It’s really awesome because for a consignment shop it is so organized and it’s definitely not messy.  No this is not a review, I am writing about them all on my own just because of the experience I had.

Then I decided when I went on my shopping haul over at Cavenders I knew that my Texas shirt had to be paired with these bell bottoms because of the boho look.  This is what I like to call boho casual and I added the shoes because well, they’re awesome and one of my favorites in my closet.  I can’t seem to let these go.

I also love the boho look because it covers up the issues I have with the weight I gained.  While I’m in the process of dieting and everything (being sick for 2+ weeks was a huge set back) I figure I’ll keep it boho so that at least I feel somewhat comfortable.  I also love that even though you dress up you can still feel comfortable without having to squeeze into that awesome pair of jeans that makes your bum look awesome while cutting off the circulation to your stomach haha.  I have this issue with jeans because of my body shape.  It’s so hard to find jeans for my long legs on top of big thighs/butt and a smaller waist.  I guess I have a pear/hour glass shape body.  I think I’m kind of in between those two shapes.

Stay tuned to tomorrow’s post for a special announcement since we are celebrating my 3rd blogiversary! 


We've extended the Gucci Scarf Giveaway with Ewa Bazaar for one more week since the amount of interest that has been shown is the highest ever!

  5. Up until a few years ago I only wore bell bottoms. I actually used to hate skinny jeans haha. I might need to break out my bell bottoms again. I have been saving them in the back of my closet for them to become cool again, hehe!
