Elephants on the Palazzo

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Shirt: HM // Pants:Thrifted (similar) // Clutch: Forever 21 (similar) // Ring: Mossimo // Elephant Cuff: Thrifted // Wedges: Steve Madden (similar)

I am a huge fan of Palazzo pants, for obvious reasons; they are super comfortable! Palazzo pants first became popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s.The style was reminiscent of the wide-legged cuffed trousers worn by women fond of avant-garde fashions in the 1930s and 1940s, particularly actresses such as Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich (Wikipedia).

This pair of elephant pants probably belonged to someone's grandma in the early 90's, but I'll rock 'em in 2013! I am also sporting my new hand strap clutch. I first saw this trend on SheFinds at the end of last year, but they were all ridiculously expensive (like 2G's expensive). So, I waited for mainstream fashion to catch on... and it still hasn't, but this was hiding at my local thrift store. It's Forever 21, but I have not seen this in any store or on their website. Hopefully, it was a test run, and they're stock more soon! I am really digging this type of clutch, what do you think of this style?

I'm so glad to see a fellow thrifter!!! I adore palazzo pants, but have to wear them when the hubby isn't around... he prefers micromini's , lol.
Those SM shoes are awesome blossom... and I can't believe you found an elephant bangle to tie in those pants! Great job!!! Jules from bles-id.blogspot

Love this look! I'm a fan of palazzo pants too but I don't have any with elephants! I really love those shoes too and I'm impressed that you got this h2t look from my favorite store, Goodwill.

I love that style of clutch. I always seem to drop mine and that little strap would prevent that. Thanks for linking up.
