After: When I first tried them on, my initial thought was "holy crap, I'm going to look super tiny and ridiculous in these." But when I looked at myself in the mirror, I saw hips, and a butt I didn't know existed. While I loved the way the jeans accentuated my curves, when I zoomed into the flared bottoms, I felt like they were eating up the rest of my tiny legs. I stand at only 5'3" and I frequently wear flats and sneakers, so in the end I felt like I could only pull these off if I wore heels. I probably won't go out and purchase tons of flared jeans for my wardrobe, but I definitely don't mind switching out of my skinnies for flares and heels every now and then.
