Is shopping for pants a nightmare for everyone, or just me? I managed to convince the Thrifting Guru to come with me even though she has sworn time and again that she won't go pants shopping with me anymore. It's that bad. I'm hard to fit, too
Ann Taylor skinny cargos $6 VV Boutique
These have been on my wish list since M at Ain't No Mom Jeans has been going on and on about her J Brand Houlihans since 2010!!! I had never even heard of J Brand or Houlihans but was quickly educated! Obviously mine aren't quite the same, but I think these have the same vibe and I fell in love instantly.
Skinny legs, side pockets and ankle zips = VV Boutique Houlihans!
They were super comfortable and I envision wearing them a hundred ways! Today I paired them with three other "thrifted" pieces.
Gap merino wool navy cardi, second-hand from my favourite Megan
Bangles, second hand from my Sister Thrifter
Wood bead necklace $3 VV Boutique
I looooovvvveee this necklace. It is so interesting and unique, exactly the kind of little thing to make a big difference!
Sheer shell top $16 Forever XXI
I felt awesome in this ensemble today!
Green pointy flats circa 2007
My nightmare resulted in a J Brand Houlihan-ish dream come true thanks to VV Boutique! It was all worth it in the end!
