What next...finger cymbals and a veil?


For me, finding a new blog to follow is like finding a new g-friend...and that g-friend has a wicked closet that I get to raid and...we are the same size. The bloggers that I follow are like virtual girlfriends...I get to peek in to their closets, their make-up bags, and we even get to do eachother's hair via Youtube video tutorials! It's almost like a grown up version of the sleep overs we used to have as girls. Or, in the case of bestie and I, like we are twenty something single girls living the life in a Chicago high rise. The beauty of the blog is that I can get this fix anytime I want! Ahhhh...the beauty of the internet and an Android.

My latest g-friend is Whitney, author of burgundy boots. G-friend is a California girl with EDGE. She is so LA...tattoos and all...but I knew she was my bestie when I found out that she shops Forever 21 and Old Navy and ROCKS it. But I really knew we were meant to be when her recent blog post was about her harem pants seen here...



G-friends...confession...I have had a black silk pair of harem pants in my closet for...wait for it...over a year. I have been too scared to let these venture out...these damn pants have been taunting me every time I go in the closet to put together a look. "Hey...hey you...you said you wanted to be cool and wear something no one else wears! What's wrong with you? Are you chicken?" I totally am. Then I saw this picture and it was like a harem pant intervention. I am now inspired to make my pants work for spring and find something fabulous to wear with them. Hopefully, I will conquer my fears and a future post will show that I did it...that I conquered the harem pant! What fashion fear do you want to conquer this Spring?

Well, they look great in the photo. I'm sure you'll rock em. Can't wait to see the photos. I've been afraid of them and will probably never wear them but all the pics I see look great.

Whenever I read your posts, I always want to write, "My thoughts exactly!!"

This blog / twitter world is like one big cocktail party... where can come and go as we please (and don't even have to dress up for!).

Torrie said...

I just headed over to the blog (looooooooove it... going back for more) and saw your comment about your "co-blog author". I never made the full connection that the posts were from two different people!!!

Looooooser. :) Now, I'll pay closer attention to the "posted by" part!!

Bestie said...

Torrie, yes my college bestie (and frequent participant in my girls weekends) is now posting as fwb!

p.s. i had to stick with Anita today...day 2 level 2.

I simply CANNOT rock the harem pants, but I bet you'd look adorable! And your friend looks fan-TAS-tic.
