proof that cheap can sometimes be chic

like most people, i hate spending a ton of money on clothing. it is just so not necessary. actually, some of my favorite pieces in the world (and the ones that get the most reaction from people) are from thrift stores. i'm sure most of you could probably say the same. that being said, these pants were quite a surprise from a random trip to forever 21. they are well made (especially by f21 standards) even double lined! i love them, they are the perfect amount of drama without being out of control.

Very nice pants. I do think F21 has a few gems to be found.

glory: thanks!

TCH: yeah, i'm always surprised when i find great stuff there. i tend to think of it as a wasteland for cheap, unflattering fabric :) i do like some of their shoes though.

Those pants are amazing! Was this a recent find? Although I'm sure they're all gone by now. Reiss made a similar pair [but thin legged] and I want them but not enough to spend 240 on them.
