Recently, I threw out a bunch of low-rise jeans I’d despised for years and replaced them with comfortable cotton pants in a half-price thrift-shop shopping spree!
I really hate low-rise pants.
Thank $%#! they are out of fashion now.
I only owned some because I use to work in wholesale fashion where I had to sell them.
And it was nice having a pair of jeans in all my favorite colors.
I get around everywhere on a bike these days, so I wear pants a lot, and though jeans are comfortable, cotton pants are more so.
I found three pairs. This is the first one I’m blogging about: a nice dark blue cotton with a black lace print.
Usually, I wear a basic black top with this pair, but this outfit is from a birthday party pub crawl so it’s more glammed-up.
I had also found this gorgeous satin halter neck vest with rosette details in the shopping spree, so I wore it over an off-shoulder cotton top (it’s not that warm here in Melbourne just yet!) and an ornate black sequin ‘statement’ necklace.
I’ve been playing around with camera apps lately, so these next photos have some strong filter action going on…
I posted these pics originally on my personal style and home decorating Instagram account, @Christine_of_Hexotica.
I have three Instagram accounts, fyi:
@Hexotica for the handmade creations I sell on Etsy,
@Hexoticas_travel_diary for food, travel, and places around Melbourne, and
@Christine_of_Hexotica for my personal alternative home decorating and fashion!
Love the red velvet luxury of this photo! Which is to say, I love my doll-house lounge-room furniture, ha!
“Yes, I am a lady of ze haus, welcome, welcome to my literary salon, darlings.” hahaha.
Black and white filters are so forgiving!
Believe me, my skin does not look this good in sunlight. hahaha.
I’ll post the other two sassy cotton pants soon.
I know, pants are not as exciting as dresses, clubbing outfits, or costumes for me either, but, you know…lyfe, right?
It’s so casual for us 99%’er’s.
Especially if you get around mostly by bike or do a helluva lot of walking everywhere, like I do.
Those of us who don’t pretend we walk around in high-heels all the time.
