I took a sanity day off yesterday, and met up with WordLily (Hannah) to hit several GoodWill stores.
We had a blast, and completely forgot to take a picture to prove to you all that we were together.
When I saw these trousers, I pointed them out to her, telling her that her husband would approve. We agreed that I should really try them on. The rest may as well be history. They came home with me, and I had to wear them right away.
I've decided that they're "retro futurism", and thus fit with current trends. We had a lot of laughs about how if I paired these with anything other than solid black (or maybe white), it would go gaudy so very quickly. We also agreed that these don't exactly make one's hips and thighs look smaller. I'm fine with that.
My kids said "Wow Mom, those pants are sooo cool!", and "I wish I had pants like that".
So what do you think - should I wear these out of the house? I have to admit, the happiness factor is pretty high :)
