This post is coming to you a little later than expected. I had forgotten all about these photos and happened upon them today. This look was taken around January, I believe. I was at a vintage shop and I fell in love with these awesome 70’s plaid flared pants. Disappointingly at first glance, these pants were labeled by the store as “Wool Pants”. However, when I felt that fabric, I was 70% sure it wasn’t. Keeping my fingers crossed, I checked the tags and to my relief they were 100% acrylic. I recommend checking tags, always! You never know – fabrics may surprise you… Although, fur is pretty obvious and repulsive. Buying leather or wool second-hand may be more acceptable (in terms of sustainability) than opting for new, but I personally do not buy or wear any clothes that use animals as fabric regardless of leniency to sustainability. The decision is yours.

These pants definitely needed, and still requires an alter. I haven’t had the time to get done and since winter is coming to an end, I might even just postpone the adjustments until next season. 😅 You just might see them again next fall or winter, styled in a completely different look.

The snow makes me smile, but by the end of this shoot my toes were freezing. I indubitably concurred that I was not wearing enough layers; not to mention, the shoes I am wearing are not ideal for trekking through snow. Outfit impracticality is my specialty. This look altogether is a little different than what I’m used to aka not my usual, normal style. Sometimes, it’s fun to experiment with your style so go be bold and wear whatever inspires your mind. Even the nonsensical outfits can complete a killer look. Remember, fashion has no rules. As long as you are expressing yourself and it is representing you, no one can tell you no.
