What I wore 1.29.13 (I'm back bitchesss)

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Laptop broke, family issues, health issues and a job promotion have gotten in my way. I absolutely love this outfit and I hope you do too!
*Please ignore my mess of what I call hair.

Top and shorts: Forever 21
Blazer: Kohls
Shoes: DSW
Necklace: gift from my boyfriend's aunt
_Sorry for the lack of specifics_

Oh and another thing that got in the way of any new posts is my amazing new tattoo ;]

AJ's Christening 1.27.12

Blazer - Material Girl / Dress - Forever 21 / Necklace - Forever 21 / Tights - Hue / Shoes - Charlotte Russe

I refereed to this outfit as "The Esther Collection" because my best friend Esther gave me the dress, necklace, and shoes as various gifts over the years. This dress was a turning point in my personal style because it was something that I would have never picked out for myself. When I first saw it, I styled it in my head immediately. It made me realize that I will pretty much wear almost anything, and I like the challenge of styling an outfit around a piece that I did not buy.

I also decided to do some print mixing with the floral dress and leopard booties.

OOTD 1.26.13

Vest - Forever 21 / Sweater - Stolen from my mom's closet / Leggings - Forever 21 / Shorts - eBay / Shoes - eBay

I decided to buy these lace shorts from eBay as something to put over leggings when long tops or tunics don't quite cover my rear. They actually are long enough to wear as shorts without looking like lingerie.

OOTD 1.20.13

Hat - eBay / Glasses - eBay / Tunic - LEI / Necklace - Walmart / Leggings - eBay / Shoes - eBay / Purse - eBay

When I left the house yesterday, I realized that 70% of my outfit came from eBay. If that doesn't say I shop on eBay a lot, I don't know what will. Anyway I got several compliments on these leggings which I bought as inspiration from the Blackmilk Beetlejuice ones.

Office Wear from H&M

 As you may be aware of, I recently (officially) graduated from college. I received some money from Christmas so I was actually responsible with my purchases. I decided to pick up some nice clothes for potential job interviews and once I get a job. Bottoms were more of a concern over tops. I know exactly the style of dress pants I wanted just from experience and from people watching. I wandering into H&M in hopes of finding something. And I did.
The pants are perfect! I..actually Fran and I... hate any pants that are a flare cut or really wide boot cut. Hence, the blog name. That's all we wear in the jeans department, skinny.
So I knew I wanted semi cropped, straight leg dress pants. And I would try on some boot cut, and see how wide the cut was. I found nice pairs of straight less pants along with a nice boot cut style too. And the blazer is really nice!
I am an eBay fean, and I don't like to pay more than I have too, but H&M is rather affordable even if it is more than I would normally spend. This blazer was $50 and all 3 pairs of pants were $35. Overall, I am very happy with my purchases.

I found a few items at Burlington Coat factory. Another pair of pants, and some dress shirts. Favorite purchase are these ballet flats.
