VELVET SOCK BOOT f21


I have grown to accept it. I am short. 


It won't change, however, the jean industry needs to! I have to fold all my pants bottoms up so they can have my desired length. I could cut these but I don't want to chance not liking it later. These fit so comfy! A little bit of stretch, but not enough that when they are over-worn they start to get baggy. I bought mine in a size 25, which is my normal fit and they really do fit true to size. I just feel these clothing stores need to start selling shorter pants meant for us under 5'5". The reviews for these pants on Urban's website all state they too have to cut theirs. For pants (like my velvet trousers from TopShop) with more expensive fabric or cute hems cutting isn't an option. There are tailors...but not everyone can find a good one or afford it.


I hope everyone had a good new year! Mine was chill and spent with great people.

Best of 2017: Your Favorite Posts/Outfits + A Few Facts

2017 has been a great year for myself. I have grown socially with the launch of my new boutique. I work my a** off, and it is paying off. I have far too many pets, but I regret nothing. I just hope if 2017 was this good to me, 2018 will be even better!

FAVORITE PIECES FROM 2017
 1. Topshop's Bonded Velvet Trousers. These are so comfy and flattering it isn't funny. I spent a good price tag on these but I do not regret it. Wish I got the blazer to match!



 2. Yellow has really been a favorite this year. I love this Yellow Jack Hat.



 3. Makeup counts right? Rihannah's new Fenty line that launched this year has taken my makeup skills to the next level. How so? Its so awesome you do not have to have too much skills to apply. It will look great no matter what ;)



 4. Vintage find, Eagle Bolo Tie. Last name means eagle so.. chaa.
