Play that funky music. And pray we survive the night. Dance under strobe lights before we drop. After our hearts beat to the rhythm. Beating itself from iron casings that shatter ribs. Hold these cassettes close to our chests, needing KISS to survive. Listening to vinyls muted children's cry.

Don't leave me this way, in a crowded room full of strangers. It's silent on the dance floor. Deafening music hide clattering guns cocking. The song plays well and we all fall.

I will survive. They won't.

Never thought I'd ever wear flared pants. Never thought I'd ever enjoy flared pants. Never thought I'd ever love flared pants. Yet here I am.

I'm not a complicated girl. Not in life, and not in fashion. Keep it simple. Thus, I like my denim dark, skinny and fitted. These bottoms are none of those things. Instead, these Forever 21 Flared Denim Pants are rustic, high-waisted and flared. And gorgeous, most definitely gorgeous.

Apparently, they were 'on trend' last year due to the resurgence of 70s style. Which I completely missed, as expected of me. Always blissfully ignorant about the latest style. These pants aren't even mine.

My cousin handed these pants down to me, which I had to hem. They were for normal-sized people, not for the tiny. Once my mother hemmed them, I set off the next day. I paired it with a basic Black Zara Shirt and my favourite White ShawlbyVSnow Shawl. And to be completely honest, I have not felt this snazzy since last year.

Perhaps a pair of pants can reinvigorate my garish wardrobe. Which is ironic since they came from the most garish era. We can all learn a lesson from the seventies. Be fun and free in a solemn time. After all, what else can you do?

What's your favourite part of the 70s?

  6. Honestly, I hate flared pants... but these are awesome! I think the button detail is what won me over. But if you can get me to like corduroy then you have some sort of magical powers...

  34. Okay first off girl you are GORGEOUS- like holy crap stunning! I remember wearing flared jeans in middle school and then thinking what in the world was I doing with my life. When it was announced they're coming back into style I shuddered a little, but you're changing my mind slowly. Love the colors of this outfit- your makeup also helps it pop.

  40. Your makeup is always on point! Just like you, I'm more of the simple but polished look and flared pants never seem to be logical till now! Bought a pair of Uniqlo, hemmed it and has worn it a few times already. x

  41. I remember I did own a pair of flared trousers from Anthropoligie when I was in my teens. I loved them because they were high-waisted, but I don't think I could don them now. You on the otherhand look amazing in these pants. Lovely photos.
