I have a confession to make: yesterday I went to check out two consignment stores for party wear for my upcoming ballroom dance Gala. I have not found any decent party stuff there but somehow I ended up with a couple of items I was not looking for.
pic 1-3 Wide leg baggy 100% wool camel trousers new with tags (from a local boutique). Only on Friday I was mulling over Angie's formula an thinking that I would love to have a pair of toffee pants to play with - and this is what I find the next day. The fabric quality is very nice!
I also was gathering these outfits with baggy wide trousers without a hope that I can ever find those:
How could I have left them in the store? I could not. I think I need to let out the hem a bit but need to decide first on the heel height. In the worst case if I cannot make them work as long trousers then I will make them into another pair of culottes!
Now tell me I am crazy because very possible I am...

For some reason I fell for this jacket even though it was black and I already have a black tux jacket. Look at the length - isn't it perfect? I also loved the sharp shoulder line, the faux leather sleeves, the low stance and narrow lapels - all this looked pretty current to me. My only hesitation was the double breasted style but in the end I decided to risk it. There was also black long jacket by Robert Rodriguez with an awesome patterned silk lining and cool design details...but it just did not fit me right at all: looked like a sack on me without fashionable fluidity. In comparison this BCBG jacket fits like a dream!
What do you think - score or "what she was thinking"? :-)
