style me

i admit it, i am one of those people who will sometimes buy something only because it's a good deal. i know that is wrong. i should have a checklist of sorts that i have to go through before i buy anything. something along the lines of, "if this were more than $.99, would you still want it?" because i'm sure more often than not the answer would be no. alas, i do not have this sort of self control. this, among other things, is what causes my closets to bulge at the seems. this and the fact that i love buying ugly clothes, just to see if i can make them look cute.
speaking of, i found these pants the other day for $.99. they are of the "so ugly they're cute" variety. i fell in love immediately...and not just because they were $.99. i imagined them with a plain white tank and some cute strappy heels. maybe a long string of black pearls. so yes, i will be wearing these many times come summer! in the mean time, this is how i styled them. i wanted to go for an old-hollywood sort of look. not much about me screams old hollywood, but hey, i gave it my all.

and here is how i styled them:

  14. So...I kind of love these! I don't think I could pull something like that off (mostly because I hardly ever wear pants!) but I think the way you styled it is really fun!
