SORRYYYYYY I haven't posted in so long!
Yes, I am just now posting my outfit from Valentine's Day. :) I didn't do anything romantic-looking, 'cuz I didn't see my husband, but I love holidays, so I at least dressed in red.
I struggle with ways to wear these bold pants; they're just TOO MUCH AWESOME to style easily. ;) But this is my favorite way I've styled them so far.
They're oh-so-punky, and not really in a couture way, 'cuz they're Abbey Dawn--Avril Lavigne's line for Kohl's. Anyone remember Avril??? Where has she gone??? I loved her music when she first emerged onto the American music scene (in her awesomely baggy '90s grunge pants). I'll admit it! I was obsessed with the songs "Sk8tr Boy" and "Complicated." Dude, I'm pretty sure I still know all the words.
And these equally awesome shoes are definitely going to see a lot of wear, so be prepared, my dear readers, to see them up on the blog a lot!
They're right on trend right now: a pointed toe, ladylike silhouette, and metallic cap-toe.
<3 Love at first sight...
I lusted after them when they were at Target, but didn't want to splurge (they were like $39 or something, and I have what I call "Secondhand Syndrome:" if the price is double-digits, it's high. lolz). So I drooled and drooled to myself while watching the price drop as they first went on sale, then clearance, then final clearance, and then--lo, and behold--I found a pair in the color I wanted in my size with the tags still attached at my local Goodwill!
Don't get me wrong: the shoes are definitely worth the original asking price, but God saw fit to let me get them for $6!
