We become alive in a time of fear

Rag & Bone leather jacket, Understar cropped tee, Topshop leopard belt, Forever 21 jeans, Rebecca Minkoff booties

I've wanted red jeans since I first saw a pair at Zara when I was in Chicago in the spring, but the size was wrong so I figured it wasn't meant to be (yet) and moved on. There were many options, like J Brand, Ksubi and Rag & Bone all came out with gorgeous red jeans but before I pulled the trigger I went into Forever 21 to buy a bunch of disposable shirts/dresses for the SE Asia trip (clothes I wouldn't mind potentially wrecking in travel.. I'm kind of hard on my stuff) and saw these for 1/7 of the price so had to snag. Since I like them so much I'll know to invest into more bright jeans/pants in the future.

  43. girl you look hot!! I love the red jeans on you. I just ordered the red Rag & Bone jeans and plan on wearing them lots, I'm obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Seriously, you rock those red pants better than I've seen anyone do it (and I can probably count the number of people on both hands).

    And the fact that they were a bargain. Hands down winner.


    Lots of love from Sydney,
