The skinny pants experiment
top - Joe Fresh, cardigan - J.Crew, necklace - Cleo, pants - Old Navy, shoes - Poetic License
Today is officially the first time I've attempted skinny pants since the 80s. (Of course, back then it was accompanied by an oversize graphic sweater, a million neon bracelets, lace headband a la Madonna. Oh, and I was 10. I probably got away with a lot of fashion crimes in those days.)
When I tried these on in Old Navy, I wasn't sure if the silhouette would work on me, but figured these were worth a try for $14 (gotta love those friends and family sales!).
With the boyfriend sweater to cover up the junk in the trunk, and heels to lengthen the look, I don't think it came out too badly. I'm sure DH will still say I look like a penguin, but what do boys know anyway! I'd rather know what you think.
My OOTD skills have apparently gone rusty. It took me 40, yes that's right 40, shots to finally come up with these two decent ones. Hopefully things will speed up once I get back into the swing of things.
