As I’ve said before, I don’t really wear pants. If you see me wearing trousers, one of three things must be true: 1) It’s raining, 2) I overslept and didn’t shave my legs today, or 3) I’m out West where pants are the only acceptable attire for any occasion outside of a wedding. So when I see an outfit that makes me thing my pro-skirt policy, it’s a big deal.
A slouchy, 70s-inspired, tie-front pant in a rusty shade of orange? These pants are a revelation.
Basically, I avoid pants for a couple of reasons. First, they’re not as feminine as skirts. Second, I find them to be a bit constricting when I sit all day. Three, I hate the wrinkles that develop on the inner thigh when I sit all day. And lastly, they’re just not as special as a dress.
These pants are special. They’re feminine. And they look they’d be really comfortable. Like pajama pant comfortable, it pajama pants looked chic and fashion forward. Which, in case you were confused, they don’t. Stop wearing them in public.
But I digress…
Luckily, I found a similar pant, in a similar color, in a price-point that I can afford. It’s like the ghost of Farrah Fawcett smiled upon me. (Oh, come on, those are totally Charlie’s Angels pants.)
Sometimes, it’s just nice to see a trendy item that you really like. It reminds you that you’re alive. And these pants are trendy, fun, and, hopefully, flattering on my figure. I guess we’ll find out in 5-7 business days when they arrive.
