If you told me last year that I would’ve bought a high-waisted, wide-leg pair of pants for myself, I wouldn’t have believed you.
…and yet that is exactly what I have done for the new year. Two words: outlet store. It just looked right, fit right, and the material was so good (even Dad who used to work in a pants store said so); most importantly, it was at perhaps a third of its original price. Buy mode: on!
I love myself some skinnies, and don’t really have a wide-legged pair in my closet, casual or formal. In my head, why would you want to look bigger than you are? However, this won me over because the high waist helped hide my tummy (as always 😀 ) and the wide legs were comfortable and roomy, a change from the usual tightness of slim pants. Sometimes it is really good to try something new. 🙂
By the way, it looks like I just appointed myself as the new ambassador for the Astoria Plaza’s Regeneré Spa. LOL don’t blame me, we tried taking outfit shots downstairs at the prettier places, and the people just stared you down like crazy! Le sigh.
