fancy pants

Working for Anthropologie has many lovely perks, and one of them is being able to see all the beautiful clothing and accessories many months before they are actually available to purchase. When I first caught glimpse of the adorable Charlie Trousers I knew they were destined to be a brand favorite but assumed they'd never make it anywhere near my own closet. Because, as you know, I hardly ever wear pants. So when I was given the challenge of styling the Charlie Trousers in my own way I was hesitant at first but now I'm completely smitten! They come in all sorts of fun prints and colors, but this grey brocade version is my favorite by far. I love the gamine, Audrey Hepburn-style cut and the fact that they are nice and stretchy (without being tooooo stretchy). They strike the perfect balance between feminine and tomboy and look perfectly perfect paired with my usual layers of vintage lace and frills. Perhaps I could be an occasional pants wearer after all? Hey, anything that elicits such positive comments about my bum must be alright.

Take a peek at a fun feature (I created the outfits for) here, and check back soon for another outfit inspired by the Charlie Trousers in a beautiful navy floral print!

I absolutely love these pants on you. The way you styled them is so fresh, and quirky. You're one of my biggest style inspirations, and think you're kind of the coolest. Happy Wednesday!

You definitely shouldn't be afraid of wearing pants, they (and these!) look great on you.

As a bit of an odd aside, I browsing on etsy the other day and came across a dress that reminds me so much of you I have to send you the link (I'm not the seller or anything like that, it just REALLY reminded me of you): http://www.etsy.com/listing/117174128/vintage-1960s-champagne-party-dress?ref=sr_gallery_6&ga_search_query=drop+waist+metallic+dress+1960s&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=CA&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=drop+waist+metallic+dress+1960s

Yeeeeah need more shots of that butt! Love the heels, too. Very Carven-ish. I've started buying all sorts of vintage army/navy pants and workwear pieces... I'll have to debut my "other" self on the blog soon.

You look beautiful. I hope you're well. I don't want to put the cart before the horse, but Sterling and I are thinking of an east coast trip for spring break (!)

The pants truly are adorable, and I think they look great on you. You really should wear pants more often. I think you carry them well, and they fit in with your style perfectly.

Dom said...

I think you styled the trousers adorably! It's a change up from your frocks, definetely, but it still oozes your vintage femme touch! Love the print so, so much.

Mallory Nicole said...

You look beautiful! It's not often that you're in pants, but you can most definitely pull them off!
