( This coming from a girl who may or may not still own a hair scrunchie depending on semantics and the width in millimeters of the ruching.)
I ask because I think these denim stretch pants might be cute with a chunky oatmeal-colored turtleneck sweater on a cold winter day. And as hard as it was for me to type "stretch pants" I need to tell you I would never ever not in a million Ferris Bueller Days Off wear them with patent stiletto heels but with boots. Or something. Yeah. I mean, am I crazy? Am I verging on these?
Or better yet, this get-up? Though, fuck--I actually like that embroidered denim shirt in a slightly ironic though truth be told also sincere way, not with stirrup pants, mind you--never stirrup pants. But thrown over a tee-shirt worn with a simple black a-line skirt? My scrunchie's on too tight, isn't it? You'll have to pardon me if I pause to catch my breath on this here split rail fence.
So these, you who talked me out of Crocs, what do you think? My hesitation lies not so much in the stretch pant moniker as it does the elastic waist band. They look like maternity jeans; as it is one too many UPS delivery guys have congratulated me when the only bun in my oven is a hot cross chocolate croissant for lunch. So?
Save me from myself. Hell, save yourself! November 3rd--I believe today is Election Day so cast your vote. What do we do in the face of these 80's fashions that have come back maybe a little bit cuter? Plastic earrings and shoulder pads, Sussudio, crap that means nothing but gets stuck in your head nonetheless. Sussudio, oh oh oh, Just say the word...
