CHANNEL YOUR PARENTS | 5.10.15
Whenever I wear flares I can't help but think of my beautiful mother, Mandy. Mandy, you remind me of a pair of pants - sorry about that! I don't know if it's because she does don a pair often of the fact that in those old family photos shes rocking a pair too I don't know but she looks fab in them whenever. It's time for me to finally wear a pair though and take a page from the parents book, I bet my dad wasn't shy of a few pairs of baggy denim pants either. My dad is mainly being channelled through my Stones t-shirt though, I always remember seeing his many albums in this cabinet which helped me fall in love with the band from a young age. So this outfit does remind me of the pair of them - how cute of me! What a loving daughter I am.
Top - Forever 21, jeans - Topshop, boots - Topshop (similar), jacket - Primark (similar), necklace - Topman, rings - Bloody Mary Metal
Enough gooey talk about them though and let's focus on this get-up. I don't want to blow my own trumpet and all but this outfit is very cool and who knew flares could be cool? Not many people that's for sure, the amount of hate I see about them in crazy - leave them alone! I for one adore a rad pair of bell bottoms and these ones I scored in the Topshop sale for £5, I think the correct word for that is WINNING! I do feel strange not wearing a pair of tight bottoms but it was quite a glorious change from the norm and I'm thinking these may be my new jean of choice for those days where comfort rules above everything.
A comfy rock 'n' roll attire wouldn't be complete without leather and leopard so my everyday leather jacket and one of my many pairs of animal print booties had to be worn to complete my new favourite look. You should go through your parents wardrobes and music stash (with their permission) sometime and see if anything inspires your way of dressing or even your music taste, who knows maybe your parents could potentially be cool too.
