I got a Delia's catalog in the mail this week and I was so super confused because they closed all their stores a few months ago. Apparently they are back - only selling online - but they are back, and I could not help but get just a weeeee bit excited. No, I'm not a teenager, but Express, American Eagle, and Delia's are the three stores I can buy my size in bottoms and know they will fit me. So yay for great fitting pants!
Delia's totally reminds me of the 90s and the 90s are certainly back with a bang. The overalls, the florals, yes, those are reminiscent of that decade for me, but slipping on this pair of flared leg jeans took me back to another time - like hearing your favorite song from years ago on the radio again!
I had been craving a pair of flares, but was avoiding them because I certainly don't miss the battle of the inseam. You know what I'm talking about - needing a different inseam for every shoe heel height in your closet! That's the biggest advantage to skinny jeans - not having to worry about that! I love my flares to hover right over the floor when I'm in shoes, and this "short" length from Express works perfectly with my 4" heels.
I don't think flares will start kicking my skinnies out of my collection, but for now I'm definitely loving this super soft, perfectly stretchy, non-muffin-top-giving pair!
