My colorful skinny jean dilemma
I have been seeing the colorful skinny jeans ALOT on the blogs that I follow. I tend to stay away from colored pants and stick with regular jeans or shorts, but I decided to bite the bullet and buy a pair of them. I shopped for them at Rue 21. Rue tends to have some super trendy clothes at a price that won't break the bank, this helps, especially on some colored jeans that I was not too sure about in the first place.
The pair I decided to buy were a kind of a dark sea foam green. They were $21.99. When I got to the register, my friend "G" :) who happens to just be awesomely cool, said..."Guurrrrl! You need to check out this rack of skinny pants right here, they are on sale for $2.00 a pair." WhAt? There even happened to be a pair on the rack that looked almost exactly like the ones I was fixing to buy. So, I put back the ones I was going to buy and instead bought SEVEN different colors for $14.00 plus tax! How cool is that? They fit perfectly and are super soft and comfortable. I am one happy chickie! Rue 21 rocks! Here are my colors...
Since I am not used to having color on my bottom half, it will take some experimenting to get the color combinations right. I tried a few over the weekend. Here are a few examples..
This is the creme pair with a button up shirt from Maurices that I just picked up at a yard sale for $2.00. So that means my pants were $2 and my shirt was $2. Talk about a bargain! I am not ashamed to wear a bargain. In fact, I live for them!
This next one is a question of white pants or red. I actually like the red now that I am looking back at the photos. I got this shirt at the same yard sale for $2.00. I obviously had a great weekend!
Here is a deep red and black sheer top with the red pants. This is one more shirt from my $2.00 yard sale collection. Still up in the air on this one. Need to try it with the black pants and compare. The shoes are BCBG. Got them at Goodwill for $8.00, like new. Found the same pair on eBay for $150.00. They have a chain going across the top that is just awesome.
Here is a pic of the ones on eBay. They are very comfortable.
This is the outfit I ended up wearing. I guess I wasn't quite ready for the bold color skinnies yet. But I will keep trying and will make it out of the house with some on very soon!
Wear what makes you happy. If you are happy, you will shine. :)
