A Flare for fashion

I know, the titles just get cheesier and cheesier right? Oh well I have lifetime of them to share with you, get used to it!!

So, for the last 6-ish years when it comes to my choice of demin, my heart firmly belonged with the skinny.
In part because I love a turn up and in part because when they first came out all the style "guru's" said fat girls couldn't wear skinnies. Well F you "guru's" this fat girl's wearing skinnies, in your face!!!

Of late though I've had a hankering for a flare, to swoosh around like some kind of Charlie's Angels reject...

Yeah, thats right ladies, you *can* lunge in flares, no biggy!

So when I recently visited the new Simply Be store in Doncaster, I saw Pixie, our eyes met across a crowded shop floor and it was love at first sight....




then when I tried her on for size, it was lust at first sight too....

I mean, seriously... look at my bum!!! (big headed bitch)
So Pixie parades herself as a wide leg Jean, but because of my ample thighs she resides on me as a flare, exactly as I wanted.....Sorry I'll stop referring to the jeans as "her" now........



So when I got her,, sorry I mean them home, I teamed them with a floral top, leather belt and cardigan, I still need to get some more versatile wedges, but these ones will do for now and they went with the red tones in the top.


Top - Dorothy Perkins (Past Season)
Cardigan - Love Label @ Littlewoods (Past Season)
Belt - Simply Be

They totally take me out of my denim comfort zone, but I'm totally loving it!! Where's your denim comfort zone?
