here I go again, I told myself Ok – no more blogging until I
get FIND that last income statement I need in order to file my tax return… ARGH!
ok…. here’s the deal… we need to keep this on the down low…. I don’t want my CPA to know that a.) I am blogging when I should be working on my taxes and b.) that I may or may not be spending 168.00 on a pair of jeans – thank God hubby has no interest in reading my blog either – and no one needs to send him a link to this either! Deal?…. Pinky swear? Good. Glad we cleared that up.
I just saw this posted on facebook (by the way are we FB friends yet?) Anyone have any chores I can do? Can I babysit? Seriously I need some CASHOLA so I can go buy a pair of these jeans…
but you have to hire me quick – at last I checked they are selling OUT (in the small sizes so far). This is the ONE time I am thankful for not being a size 27 – HA! The Rachel Bellbottom. on Piperlime by Seven for Mankind. These are a FUNKY version of my standard jean that I own the Ginger. Chances are if you have seen me you know I live in jeans. Now that I have hung up my suits permanently, I rotate 2 looks. Either I am in my workout slash run errands outfit Lululemon Dance Studio Pant and Remix Hoodie (the ‘raddest’ hoodie ever made<– that’s what their site says! and its 100% true) or I’m in my other uniform my beloved GINGERS also by Seven for Mankind.
I love these jeans. Even if they are made for “women with big thighs”…as one reviewer wrote:
“if you have larger thighs you will love these jeans – or even if you want more of a dress jean look – you will love them – the only problem is they are very long – i am 5’7 and will need to hem them but i do love them.”
I get compliments on these slack style jeans at the store, the airport, preschool…. everywhere. You can find them in different washes too. I have 4 pairs (2 of them are identical except for the size – you know… when you are feeling a little “puffy”) They have great stretch, the rise isn’t so short that you are squirming in your chair. I like the darker mercer wash dressed up with a JCREW embellished tee, JCREW cardigan and Stella&Dot chain/pearl necklace.
these are a few favorites I’m drooling over…
I’m a big boyfriend blazer fan too!
That’s my go to outfit a no brainier look for me, kinda like Garanimals for adults, remember those?
Match the tags
Orange tiger top + Orange tiger bottom = Houston, we have an outfit!
LOL Did you know Garanimals are making a comeback? I almost died laughing when the commercial came on “who needs boring clothes”… preschoolers dancing to ” lemme see you move it”. What will they bring back next Dolphin shorts? I digress. Sometimes I wish they would invent them for adults – Rachel Zoe are you listening?? Check out Piperlime they have 5 sites all under one roof so many shopportunities…
and then there’s the Shoe and & Accessory section. BONUS you get the shoes Next day AIR – INSTANT GRATIFICATION, in other words see you tomorrow bell-bottoms and shipping is always FREE both ways (returns are free too so try on and return all you want. Need a little styling guidance??
OK s now I just spent another 30 minutes looking at shoes for the bell bottoms. See how my day unfolds and why I end up not getting much done (except blogging.. and shopping?) I think I need these too..
Franco Sarto – Cool ($89)
although those are pretty high for me (I’m 6’0) I don’t need the extra lift and I’m prone to rolling my ankle over soooo… those are out.
Wait I remember these…
Pioneer Woman was just blogging about these the other day on her post Monday Shoe Report. I know she bought them in every color. Well if she can manage her ranch and blog like the BEST of them in these Ralph Lauren espadrilles then I can surely work them in the concrete jungle. The may not be as cute as some of the other wedges (sorry PDub) but according to the site these puppies are a Piperlime BESTSELLER.. hmmm I wonder if the “Ree Factor” is in effect here)
These are cute too and a little shorter and a lot safer plus how great is this name?
If those are not your style you can check out Rachel Zoe’s picks here These are so cute..
but gosh I’d hurt myself in these. real bad. you already know I don’t do knifes. add in a 3″ in heel to the mix and you can pretty much call 911…. cuz I’m goin down. Ok peeps I need to sign off and get some REAL work done. Oh wait the bag! I forgot to show the bag… they have great handbags on Piperlime too… I picked this one
this Foley + Corrina Mid City Tote in caramel (another RZ pick)
to go with the sensible choice
Cynthia Vincent -Stina -in Tobacco (I like but they are $250….next..)
Now about the jewelry… you know I have lots to choose from after my Stella Dot soiree! Don’t forget to check out my Online Shopping Tip post about RetailMeNot – I searched Piperlime and came up with 10% OFF TUESDAY coupon code: TUESDAYS if you have a BR, Gap or Old Navy card. It’s ONLY GOOD ON TUESDAY so HURRY if you want to save 17.00 on those bell-bottoms! back to excavating the office for tax forms (sigh)… blogging is so much more fun.
None of the vendors mentioned above sponsored this post – my genuine love for the jeans and the shopping is the only motive behind the post! (modchik’s disclosure policy on product links can be found here)
