Wearing an H&M top and belt, 7 For All Mankind jeans, Aldo shoes, Michael Kors watch, bag and sunnies, Ralph Lauren necklace worn as bracelet and BCBG Max Azria ring.
These high-waisted bell bottoms serve as a nostalgic purchase for me since they were one of the first things I bought when I was living in New York for a bit last year. Given that you've found a really good pair that provides the perfect length for your body, bell bottoms have the tendency to successfully accentuate the waist and legs in a supremely feminine way. I was really lucky with these since they do just that and are incredibly comfortable, something that's always essential for me when buying clothes. Comfort aside, I throw these on largely in part because it reminds me so much of my New York days.
I'm currently reading a book called Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden, a non-fiction about a North Korean prison camp survivor and how he was able to escape the inhumane treatment that still occurs all throughout the repressive totalitarian state. It's a stray from my usual lineup of self-help/motivational/entrepreneurial books, and is thus one of the most compelling books I've ever read in my life. The events that occurred in the book open up a whole new array of thoughts that can make the reader feel both appreciative of the small things that make life such a blessing and at the same time, can make the reader feel an extreme amount of compassion and utter disheartenment as to why, at this day in age, can there still be a country who operates a present day concentration camp and nobody in the world is doing anything to stop it. I highly recommend you read this book... It's definitely an eye opener.
Til next time.
