Leopard Pants...Then and Now

{before: a little too baggy, a little too boot cut, a little too 90's}

Throughout this whole moving thing, I've vowed to be more organized. I would love to move into a new house with a clean start. AKA, no useless items allowed. Unfortunately I'm genetically predisposed to clutter. {thanks Mom} and I have a hard time purging. I came across two bins of clothes the other day. One had 60 sorority date night t-shirts and the other contained a jackpot. I'm talkin' Powerball jackpot. In that golden bin of treasures was a.leather pants b.pleather pants c.leopard pants and d.denim overalls. I couldn't believe I actually had the sense to continue to carry these items throughout the dozens of moves I've made since the 90s. But I guess if I still have my monchichi doll from 1981, it really shouldn't come as a surprise after all. 

So the pleather pants should probably be reserved for when my 1 year old niece needs to go to a "90's" party in 19 years. The leather pants felt like I had steel legs so not sure what to do with all that uncomfortableness. The overalls will be back {they are already making a scene, and I have to admit I'm loving them like here} and the leopard pants were almost there. They needed a little tlc so of course I called on Fatima from Thimble Tailoring. She had some enthusiasm so I took a leap of faith because that's what you do with Fatima. I have to say mission accomplished! She turned the baggy boot-cuts into slim, cropped beauties ready to be worn again. 

Moral of the blog post: Hold on to a few super trendy pieces. They'll be back in style someday. I promise.

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks for the compliment on my hair! Check out this post I did awhile ago on the curling irons I use. For this post I used #2, the curling wand! Love that it works on my short hair, like it did with my long...
