back when we started this blog, we had all kinds of ideas about how we would try to style ugly clothes. both nora and i have a penchant for buying ugly clothes because we always see the beauty in them. we use the term, "these are so ugly they're cute" all the time. so we started this post called style me, and had a few decent posts where we (mostly nora) actually made some really ugly stuff look decent.
and then we kept shopping, and shopped some more. and then our closets got so full that we both decided that it wasn't a great idea to pack an already full closet with things that are so ugly they're cute....especially when they weren't really that cute. so we kind of stopped doing those posts.
and then i found these pants and had to have them. because they really are so ugly they are cute. (ok, you be the judge, maybe it's just me.) plus they were $.50, so even one wear would make them worth it. so i'm wearing them, and you know what? i kind of love them. bright color? check. loose and comfy? check. drawstring waist? check. i mean, aren't those the three most important things when it comes to fashion? no? no?
anyhow, i don't know how often i will wear these, but when i do, i will love them and show them off, and not be embarrassed when people stare. in the wise words of a lyrical poet who also wore these pants with no shame, "you can't touch this".
