I found love. And it only cost me $35.

Remember when I was all starry-eyed smitten over the "reasonable" $78 price tag of my Abercrombie jeans

So. over. it. Zara swooped in and stole my heart, selling these perfect-fitting skinny jeans in a variety of colors for $35. You heard me correctly. $35! That's TWO pairs for the price of the Abercrombie Erin's and FOUR to SIX pairs for the many fancy brands I've foolishly spent too much on in the past. And they are so comfortable. They almost feel like leggings. Almost. I've already snatched up the green and red, and I'm debating going back for the black and blue.
*Note: for those looking to order online, they run true to size!

I don't mean to intimidate all of you with my hyper-technical photography skills (and if you follow me on Twitter, you've already seen these), but here are a few shots of me loving on my bright and beautiful pants. Color-blocking might be the most fun thing ever.

Oh, and what's that about those super sweet leopard loafers I'm sporting in the photo on the right? We're just in the middle of a torrid affair. No big deal. Aren't they loverly?

Long story short... as we all know, I blogged about the leopard loafer style a couple weeks ago. Tried on the Cole Haan version in Bloomingdale's while I was in New York. Left the store empty-handed. Thought about them. Talked about them. Dreamt about them. Low and behold, black Friday rears its beautiful head. Turns out they're 20% off with free shipping at Cole Haan's website. Damn you, sales! You get me every time! They should be arriving this week. Happy dance.

Ok, and the shopping freeze starts... NOW.

  12. They look awesome! I'm a big fan of Urban Outfitters BDG skinny jeans, but next time shopping I'll try these ones, love all the colors, especially the navy and the pink!

  13. I realize this post is mainly about the jeans, but I LOVE Cole Haan! You should have been in the store on Black Friday...50% then an extra 20% off of everything! Those shoes are very cute.

  16. I purchased the green pair, they are AMAZING! Almost as exciting, I learned Zara has free shipping and free returns! Love the loafers - I have the Steve Madden variety, they are not that comfy :(
