I had never lived long enough to witness a trend come-back. But here I am today, picturing myself aging and being old enough to say the “it used to be very popural back in time” type of sentence.
The thing is that I never thought I would wear flair trousers again after begging my parents for one when I was 8 years old. I had finally got one for my birthday, black with a kaleidoscopic pink heart at the bottom of every leg (definitely Lorie or L5 material). It actually is one of the most memorable pieces I owned, initiating me to the “being in the trend” feeling that made me wanna work in fashion. That story may explain why I spent much time in the fitting rooms at Subdued to make up my mind about those jeans, trying to figure out how to wear them without looking like a country music dancer. I eventually brought them home and actually love how it allows me to twist some basic pieces in a boho slant. Moreover when shooting the outfit I noticed that the flair cut made me feel more lady-like, walking with my head higher and comfortably feminine. To emphasize the waist I wore a black bodysuit under and of course perched myself on sky-high heels (no other option if you’re small like me). In addition, a couple of beige accessories polished the look in a soft and light way. Those photos were taken in the picturesque Montmartre where I spotted some really cool places so get ready to see some more paving stones and cute façades on the blog. Bisous.
