This is a really casual denim outfit. I love a good flare jean and this pair from TEXTILE Elizabeth and James has so many cool details. Paired with a striped tank and a cropped wool jacket the jeans took on a more modern feel, but once I added the belt the look went more western. The only downside to flare jeans is that you can't see my beautiful Charlotte Olympia boots. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.
I've always been a sucker for bell bottom jeans and when that bell bottom involves some crazy colored patchwork details I really go crazy. Since these TEXTILE Elizabeth and James jeans retailed at almost $500 I calmly stalked them until they went on sale for 80% off. Instead of doing the usual thing on top with a baggy tee and a jacket I wore a cropped evergreen pointelle sweater. Trusty Miu Miu ankle boots that have a tall heel finished off the ensemble.

This is my first pair of jeans by TEXTILE Elizabeth and James. They had a sale on Gilt and I believe it was the first sale by TEXTILE Elizabeth and James so I saw these beautiful bell bottom flare jeans and thought I would give them a try. I am so in love with these jimi jeans now. They are all I want to wear. I adore the contrast patch detail under the back pockets and the distressed, undone hem. They feel vintage and remind me of this old pair of Abercrombie & Fitch flares I cannot find anymore. The A & F jeans had the same hem, but they also had holes in the knees. I still miss them, but my mom says she cannot find them in my old, messy room. I think she hasn't tried hard enough. I will have to put out some kind of reward and maybe then my niece or nephew will try to find them. Anyway, the jimi cut by TEXTILE Elizabeth and James is a winner and since they were on sale on Gilt I didn't have to spend too much to try them out. I will definitely be back for more.
For their first outing I paired them with my trusty T by Alexander Wang bra top and this Stone Cold Fox velvet fringe shawl. My boyfriend surprised me with this top and I think it is amazing. Fringe, velvet, and burnout silk can never be bad. It has a longer hemline in the back too. Stone Cold Fox makes so many cute things, but unfortuately I haven't had the best experience with them. They used my images on their blog and never linked back to me and they called my blog Style Snag instead of Fashion Snag. I also tried to order from them more than once, but they never sent invoices out. I guess they must be pretty busy. I am glad my boyfriend found me this shawl though. I had a similar item on order from Stanton James, but I think it was the cardigan version of this top. Anyway, Stanton James ultimately had to cancel my order after months of waiting around for Stone Cold Fox to deliver the goods so I never did end up getting the cardigan.
