latest obsession: the high-waisted high-watered baggy trouser

I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of my skinnies anytime soon, but lately i’ve been craving something slouchy, comfy and ankle-freeing like these high-waisted, obnoxiously pleated, high-water trousers. Especially loving them rolled up at the hem…

The best thing about these is that they’re a no brainer. There must be millions of them at thrift stores everywhere. Although i’m pretty sure you have to be a (previously pictured) certified hottie in order for these to be flattering, everyone needs a pair of slouchy, comfy trousers and I’m definitely gonna give these a try.  They’re excellent shoe-shower-offers as well. 

Painfully Hip’s “Major Hip Replacement” Clothing Swap in Chicago update!

Ok, so this is the way we’re hoping it will work with so many people (so far we’re expecting approx 30-50). Bring your cast-offs separated into 2 different bundles – Things You Still Sort of Love and Things You Really Couldn’t Care Less About Because They’re Off to the Goodwill Bin Next Week Anyway. On the way in the door, you’ll be tossing the latter into a big pile to be dealt with later. 

Because we didn’t want it to be too organized and we wanted the swapping to be more organic, we’re going to be swapping in a sort of bartering system. Example: you see that Fiona over there has the exact leather jacket you’ve been pining for? You may have to swap for 2 nice pairs of jeans and a floral sundress to get her to part with it, but to you it’s more than worth it. Or perhaps you’re lucky and she’s feeling generous enough to give it to you in exchange for a Pabst Blue Ribbon, you never know! So needless to say, there will be wandering and mingling, therefore laundry baskets (ideally labeled with your name) for easy carrying/digging through would be a good idea. So bring your best cast-offs for this part of the evening and take home what you don’t find a good replacement for. 

Toward the end of it all, we’ll have an all-out (hopefully slightly enebriated by then) GRABfest with all the unwanted leftovers in a pile in the middle of the room. I suggest wearing a leotard or bathing suit under your clothes so if you’re bashful you can try things on right there without fear of nip-slippage (the loft is inhabited by some very sweet and non-creepy boys, so it’s possible there may be a few testosterone-laden beings wandering about – fair warning). But for the especially shy, there will be a bathroom/changing area. After the grabfest and most likely throughout the evening, we’ll be taking photos of all the best swapped outfits for

We will be providing rum-laden honeydew limeade, music, inspiring visuals and some snackage (nothing fancy), but of course you’re more than welcome to bring your preferred beverage if pink drinks (or in this case green) are not your thing (we understand – the Painfully Hip twins usually tend to be strictly beer-drinkers). We’re trying to make this as laid back as possible, so don’t start asking me about “rules.” Don’t forget to RSVP! Hope to see you there!
