In my search to find new jeans I noticed a lot of flares and bell bottoms at Barneys New York, Shopbop and other stores. I kept a pair of True Religion flare jeans and the bells were not even as large as I thought. So today I got a new pair of jeans (from my own closet), and put on my version of Ugg Boots. These mid-calf pull-on boots are Cole Haan haircalf wedges that keep my feet really high, dry and warm in winter snow.
