#27 Thrifty Thursday - Flares.

I'm a skinny jeans girl.

I own around 3 pairs of skinny jeans that I swear by, and have recently ordered a petite pair of topshop joni jeans after hearing people rave about them so much (and after wanting a pair of american apparel easy jeans but crying at the price!)

I saw this pair of flares for £1 at a carboot and bought them on a whim thinking that if I absolutely hated them it wouldn't matter. I don't mind losing £1 all in the name of fashion and experimenting!














Denim Flares, Carboot - £1
Neon Diamante Necklace, c/o New Look
Neon Yellow Court Heels, c/o Barratts
Blue Peplum top, c/o Sugarlips

They're more a bootcut jean than a flare I would say, BUT because I'm so little they really do look like flares on. I could have done a very retro outfit to go with such a retro piece of clothing, but opted for a pair of bright yellow heels and a matching necklace. I balanced the proportions of the flare out with a peplum top too, because, well, I'm not sure why but thats just fashion all over. Why does this peplum look so good with these jeans? And why the hell am I wearing flares?

I hope you like this outfit, and can you see that sun in the background? It's GORGEOUS!
Also heard it's been snowing down south today so am very happy it's been dry and sunny up north ;-)

    Somehow, my legs are just too short for them... So I'm just not giving up on skinny jeans! (;
    Nice pictures!

  26. So pretty, I really like the touch of neon. I use to wear flared jeans back in high school, now I prefer skinny jeans because their more fitted. I find that jeans tend to be baggy but if you get a flared pants it tends to look more sleek.

  34. Nice throwback! Flares used to be so popular when i was in jr high (US), but I stopped wearing them bc they were unflattering for my short legs. I wish they would cut the knee area tighter to avoid the "elephant foot" effect. stil la good £1 buy though!

  35. I'd love to go on a carboot sale, the prices there are so truly amazing! Love the pop of colour with the shoes and matching necklace!Your hair is so beautiful! <3

  37. how on earth has it taken me so long to enter to world of blogging when there are blogs like this. a day after i first found your site and i've already bought 6 things you've recommended from ebay.. this isn't going to be healthy. but if i end up dressing as good as you for that price i'm all in.

    those neon shoes are calling my name..
