I’ll Bring My Zebras Instead.
And their pasture.
I bet you weren’t expecting that.
I had an epiphany recently that I am highly susceptible to other style bloggers. Something they wear will get stuck in my head, like a Boy George song (good in my part o’ the world :), and I just pine for it. A while back Tara at Mix and Match Fashion wore a zebra print scarf, and all of a sudden I longed for anything that had a zebra print on it.
But zebra prints aren’t exactly abounding in my little corner of the world, until I stumbled upon these pants in a thrift store earlier this year. They didn’t look like this. They fit on top, but they were long, and kinda bell-bottomed. I have never bought anything remotely close to this print in my [adult] life, but I had to have them. They were seriously on sale. I guess not everybody wants to wear zebras on their rear ends.
I also learned from my first
epic floral fail foray into floral pants not to try and mix any patterns with these zebras. Keep everything else simple so peeps can take in all that fabulous zebra action. (BTW, those first floral pants have been turned into awesome skinny jeans, and we’re just waiting for a little cooler weather to show off our makeover.)
My boss called me into his office and told me if I would agree not to wear these pants to the law firm again, I can bring my dog to work.
Heh. In my overactive imagination he did. In reality he was on vacation, as were many of my co-workers, so the zebras had a very quiet debut, although several people stopped and stared while I was trying to take outfit pics. Probably because you don’t see too many zebras in this neck of th’ woods…
All rightee, readers, spill! What’s the most obnoxious article of clothing you own that you love to wear anyway?
