Allow me to give a little back story on these puppies.. About 4-5 weeks ago I found myself in a Starbucks, as I usually do between 8-10 am. I saw this adorable girl, wearing the most adorable pair of black pants. They were pleated in the front and were an exponentially better version of harem pants. I had never seen this cut, so I was immediately intrigued. I offered her a compliment and asked where she had got them. Her answer "Asia"... Really?? You can't be a little more specific? This is beside the point... I then set out on a mission to find these pants! I began to scour the thrift stores and the internet. The closest thing I found were a pair of designer ones for $365... um No. I found a couple of pairs at the thrift store that resembled what I was yearning for, but they just didn't satisfy.
I was almost ready to give up hope, thinking that they weren't trending yet so I was probably not going to be able to find them in my price point, and I'd end up trying to make them and that would be an epic fail.... (nice run on don't ya think?) BUT THEN.. I had an epiphany. eBay always has some version of whatever I'm looking for. I thought I had already searched there, but when I went back for a second look, I found absolute bliss!! Now, you may think I am incredibly nuts for going on, and on about these nylon, stretchy, slouchy, tapered pants (made in China)... But I am a fan! They are so comfortable and they have such a fun silhouette. I thought the bulkiness would play against my curves but I think they fit rather nicely.
I'd love to hear your thoughts?!?!
All of this loveliness for under $56.00!!!
