PANTS OF SLOUCH...


I admit I have spent practically the entire summer slouching around in these Lux trousers from Urban Outfitters. In fact I have them on right now! T.M.I? I was going to post a pic of me wearing them because in the Urban pic they look so awful, but when I took one of myself in them they looked just as bad! (Except the Urban Outfitters model must be about 4 feet tall because mine come down to just below the knee, and obviously I have much nicer ballet flats.)

I call them my Lisa Bonet pants because they remind me of a time long ago when I thought Lisa Bonet as Denise Huxtable in The Cosby Show was The Coolest Person In The Universe, and at the time she wore much more extreme jersey harem pants. They are sooo comfy and perfect for working from home/blog-arsing. Not quite track pants and just about acceptable as not being pyjamas for when you have to open the door to sign for deliveries. Otherwise I'd just stay in my P.J's.

But the Lisa Bonet pants were so comfy I started to wear them out and about as well. I just couldn't take them off. And what was the point if everyone else is just wearing jeans and loafing about? That's one of the good and bad things about London. No one is going to tut tut judgementally at you for having scraggly cuticles or going out to buy a loaf of bread with just washed wet hair, but it does make for laziness. Slippery slope...

I never did the Lisa Bonet pants but came a small (yet embarrassing) claim to fame as being the first to bring MC Hammer pants to my middle school. Ha.

I tried those Genie pants on (they were a friend's as there's no UO near me, alas) and they were very flattering. The exception to the 'baggy pants make your butt look big' rule.

ha, I was always the first to wear things at my school too - I loved the cycle of ridicule then seeing everyone else adopt the same thing months later and feeling just a teensy bit smug.
