Winter Kate and Rock n Roll








My favorite piece of "REAL" fashion is my Winter Kate Kimono.
It is the softest, thing ever against the skin. So light and airy. I really wish I could just wear it everyday but I don't want to wear it out. So about once a month I will get it out and dress it up.
If you know me, you know how hard it is for me to find a pair of jeans to fit this body given to me.
I am 6ft tall without heels with a 36 inch inseam...I went to every store I could think of this year to find a dark denim jean that wasn't a freakin' jegging. NO LUCK, Saks fifth Avenue was actually going to custom remake a pair of AG jeans from the mens section to fit my body. K, uh, those jeans are like 168 bucks..plus alterations. I don't think so...I mean, when I find a jean I buy at least 2 pair for the season and if I really find a jean I like I buy them all.
At that price, I would rather buy shorts and tights all year long.
I had given up, until noticing at of all places Target had redesigned their jeans. So ladies, if you hate jeggings, like a mid waist that won't show your business when you bend over and have ultra long legs, head to Target. They have the jeans tall girls dream of. Dark, nice denim,good structure and fit like a dream. Best of all they come in Short, Regular, and LONG
I have mine cuffed today just to wear with my studded heels but normally they are down all the way to the floor!! I bought all our target had and then traveled across town to buy the rest that were left in Vegas. LOL
So today I will head out happy in my vintage Guns and Roses tee, Winter Kate Kimono, Target jeans and INC studded suede heel.
Yep, that means I am 6 ft 3 today! Deal with it!

Well, you look awesome in that outfit! I love each piece but have a special place in my heart for those shoes (being a former Nordstrom shoe buyer and all that!)
It's a great put-together look, glad you found some jeans you love! Isn't that just the best feeling?

Loving the Kimono and heels, so perfect together!
Have a great day.
