I just found 2 great pairs of over-sized flared pants or in earlier times, bell bottoms. Of course, they are a little out of my budget – but in case they fit in yours – I wanted to pass them on.
The first are by a young designer with ties to Bogata, Miami and Paris – Esteban Cortazar – the pair I saw first, were in white (with a great frayed hem) and then I found another pair by CE – this pair with a high waist, in a nice denim fabric.
The other really fun pair I found was by Loha Vete – I saw these in a black jean, with a very wide bell. Their website is a bit out there, but I did like that pair of jeans!
All of them were in the $400 plus range – but still – I can wish!!!

Hot weather is just getting to Colorado, but most everybody else is in Summer weather Mode.
So I went to one of my favorite places to get my fashion questions answered – StitchFix to get a few tips on layering for summer heat.
The wrap dress is back – this time paired with a denim jacket – which is great for Colorado with its cool nights. Wrap dresses look great on everyone. Pair that with a strappy block-heeled sandal, some really fun drop earrings, and you ready to go – work, play, whatever.
They are also recommending a wide-leg linen pant – not something I’ve had great luck with – I agree they are breathable, but I tend to look slightly limp by the end of the day. And Flutter Sleeve blouses – in a bright color – feminine and cool! Guess I’d better get back to the gym to work on those arms!

Yes, Ebay is now moving to be your on-line clothing store. I was aware they were planning for this new segment and I just saw my first Ebay Fashion commercial on the TV. It’s another assault on the brick and mortar stores most of us grew up shopping. Our American society is changing to one of shopping from home. I do a fair amount of shopping myself from home. I thought the concept of home delivered groceries was too foreign in the past, but my wife has us set up on Blue Apron and it’s been a wonderful experience. My fear is in 20 years’ people will never leave their homes!

I think you could be right! I’ve been a loyal StitchFix customer for almost 2 years!
I will definitely show my age on this one: I can remember when my mom would take us to the City just before school started for our first day of school clothes – best part – we got to have lunch at the department store’s restaurant!
