I was driving to downtown St Louis the other day, in the snow and started day dreaming about wintery outfits involving pants. I checked my closet and realized that my pants inventory is dangerously low so I popped into 2 thrift stores and found some high waist pants. Along them is a pair of stirrup pants.

I'm a child of the 90s so my mom bought me several pairs of these terrible things in all colors. I'm pretty sure that I had some red ones with a Christmas print turtle neck.  I found this pair and didn't realize what they were till we were in the dressing room and I thought, "Oh, let's just try them on." So I did. I liked them and I bought them.

I stacked some blue, brown and red bakelite to match my jacket

When I shop alone, bad things happen. I don't have a girlfriend or my husband to say "Oh hell no!" so I make poor choices. However, it's always good to try new things and sometimes they turn out to be not so bad. This could be another classic bad fashion choice of mine but I've worn them in public a few times and no one has thrown rocks at me yet.

You can either chop off the elastic or pin it up under the cuff and no one knows you're in a 1993 time warp under there.

Also, check out my new favorite jacket that I thrifted! It's a modern jacket from Land's End or something like that. I'm pretty sure Dorothy from The Golden Girls would have worn something like this but whatever, I love it!
