70's flare

I was going to wear this outfit to my exam the other day, but then the pants just looked wrong in the photos, and then in real life, so I ended up having to change.
These are incredible vintage 1970's high-waisted flared plaid pants, but the last owner must of had a really weird body because they bunch up really awkwardly around the stomach area, and if I pull them down, then the my body looks really awkward. Basically, these pants need a lot of work. I pretty much despise these outfit photos, but I do think they are awesome pants nonetheless, so I'm posting the photos anyways. I took so many, but the pants just looked terrible. I sort of realized it half-way through, so some of my poses was me trying to make the pants look better. Haha. Hopefully I can get them fixed soon.

One exam down and two more to go. Summer is so close, but so far.



















Vintage pants. Unknown knit top and scarf. Mango tank. Minentonka shoes. Line leather jacket from Holt Renfrew. Michael Kors watch.

As a big fan of plaid, I love the pants. That's annoying they don't fit you quite right but the outfit is great anyway!

Love the vintage pants! I have found that lots of vintage pants bunch up the way you described. I think that's just the way pants were cut back then.

They look great but I think they would look even better with a pair of heels - probably wedges.

I love your modern take on these pants! You pull them off so well.

You did a good job at hiding the awkwardness of them, as it's not evident to me, I hope you're able to fix them. I've had some trouble clothes in the past year that are proving to be difficult to fix. So frustrating. How come clothes can't automatically fit us perfectly?! haha

Good luck with the rest of your exams
