WIW: Artsy Audrey (and pants length question)

Trying out two new pieces today - one in the black assymetrical tunic, that you can't see well in the picture.  I'm impressed with how warm it is, which thrills me!

The second is the crazy vest that was just so crazy I had to have it.  I'm still trying to decide if I like it.  It's subbing for a scarf, though the scarf would have been much more sophisticated.

I like the formula.

My question is with these pants (black jeans).  As is, they're just a smidge short, I think.  (Though they don't really look it in the pics, hmm... Maybe it's just me?).  I'm considering cropping them (as shown on the left).  Is that the proper length?  And would these look weird cropped to that length?

I'd also want to wear these with booties, as shown in pic 2 (and that's the length that they usually scrunch up to on my calf, shown on the right, also).

Apologies for the lack of hair care - I'm fresh out of the shower and forgot to add my headband before the pics.  Hair cut is scheduled for Wednesday!

    Great to see you, Amy. Fun look. The scarf reminds me of a wild bird.

    Crop the jeans two to three inches above the ankle bone and you are good.

    A bold vest can be the perfect piece to punch up a late winter look!  I like the cropped pants.  They look a good length to me, or perhaps a 1/2 inch shorter.

    I like the pants shorter.  The vest is great.  Your own version of Audrey's look.

    Live the vest over black. I'm not good with pant lengths but if you can get your footwear sorted, these pants look like they would be fun cropped.

    You look great in a column of black. I love the colors in the vest.

    What Angie said. The vest is wild! Perfect for a column of black.

    I love the sliver of ankle that you get with cropped pants - so I say give them the chop too. You can wear bold colours, so this vest is great on you. I really like your hair - if this is a bad hair day, then it must look amazing most of the time!

    The best is wild and awesome. A true statement .

    Yes cropped! Love that vest, I thought it was a big scarf until I read your notes. Great look.
