YAY! My internet is working again! Thanks for your patience this week.
Here’s a painfully hip PSA for you…
Wine and Ebay don’t mix. I was feeling pretty good after a couple glasses when i suddenly got the revelation that what I really really wanted in my life at that moment was a pair of black satin skinny pants. So I go on Ebay and fearlessly bid on and win what I remembered as a pair of size 28 Miss Sixty satin jeans with zippered ankles. Only as a rule, I never buy pants online (especially not fitted ones) because they never fit. And then I notice that they were actually a size 26 which I’ve never fit into before. And being that the ankles were zippered, even if they did fit in the waist they’d take a lot of work to hem if I had to remove a zipper first. Stupid, stupid, stupid… So I obviously didn’t have high hopes for them until they arrived. And guess what? They fit like a glove and are effing PERFECT in every way possible. Comfy and awesome and more versatile than i’d ever imagined! Ah…. So what I guess I’m saying is that wine and Ebay DO mix. Beautifully. Try it sometime.
So anyway, here’s how versatile they actually are. I wore them out dancing (of course), to a client meeting, and as casual weekend wear. Check it:
sheer white button-down: thrifted, $4
rust velvet cropped vest: thrifted, $3
satin jeans: Ebay, $30
brown spectators (a touch too small, but worth the pain): thrifted, $7
woven leather bag: thrifted, $3
Arcade Fire T-shirt: thrifted $2
printed scarf: discount mall store, $1
oversized grey cardi (i live in this thing): $3
silver skinny belt: the strap off an old handbag
red canvas oxford flats: H&M, $19
i can’t wait to try them with vintage heels next. Or maybe even my cream flag girl boots.
