Stop in the name of pants

I got these vintage high-waisted pinstripe trousers last week, another item destined for my etsy store. To be honest, I've seen some girls hit this trend out of the park, but I never felt it was quite right for me. Ever the experimenter, I took these out for a test drive today, and ended up liking the look more that I thought I would. This pair is a bit big on me, so they weren't totally ideal, and they were so long I had to wear my five inch heels to avoid looking like I was wearing a zoot suit. But I love the sportswear look, and the red stripe was so pleasantly preppy. They also made my legs look really long. Like what you see? Hop on over to my store here and get them for yourself. (And check back soon, as I will be listing the bag and earrings as well.)

  1. Yeah, the high-waisted thing is tough, but I'm definitely liking your interpretation. It's nice to see some wide-legs in the mix, instead of solely tapered. Also crazy about the bag!

  2. If I had money I would so get the bag :((

  3. I love this look on you! Super chic, hope you find a pair that works soon. =]
