Paper Bag Pants

The moment I saw these high-waisted paperbag trousers at The Limited, I fell in love. I don’t have anything else like them in my closet, and they can be dressed up (with a white oxford) or dressed down (with a black tee and jewelry. Lots of jewelry). They get bonus points because the high waist lengthens my insanely short legs. And, as if they needed another selling point, I waited so long to buy them that I came dangerously close to missing out…but I managed to snag a pair at the last minute for $12. Yes, you read that correctly. Thank you, I’ll be here all night!

They say you learn something new every day. Today, I learned:
1. I need a better camera, or at least a better place to take photos than in front of my closet door. I want (read: NEED) a DSLR camera, but I’ve got a wedding and a house to pay for first. Here’s to hoping either I win the lottery or that Santa is crazy generous this year.
2. I am exceptionally awkward in front of the camera. Apparently I need to re-watch every episode ever of America’s Next Top Model.
3. It’s official. I simply do not look good in red lipstick.

Better luck next time?

    Whaaat?!? How can you say you don’t look good in red lipstick? I love it!!! I am right there with you on the need for a better camera. Right now I’m making do with my iPhone and my crappy point-and-shoot – I just can’t afford the $450 DSLR I’m dying to get! I’ve tried to “fake it” by posting bigger pics and using Picasa to edit the hell out of the photos.

    BTW these pants look so great! And I promise you you think you look awkward, but you don’t – you look super cute! 🙂
