WELL WELL



Well well indeed, since here's something you don't see every day -in fact, only once before in this blog- I'm wearing trousers!
(And I have my hair parted in the middle, not on one side. That's pretty rare too).

This -the trouser thing, not the hair- is mostly due to dresses and skirt in general being invincible in comfort as well as to an incapability of finding a pair of high waisted trousers that are small enough around the waist and wide enough around the hip, without making my legs look like a pair of barn doors (that's a saying my mom uses. I have no idea weather it's an official one or not :) Those facts makes online shopping a pretty risky business and something I haven't dared trying yet although I've seen some pretty nice pairs out there on the internet by now. This pair however was a find at H&M last year and is pretty ok, at least great for when I go Lindy Hopping!)

I know the woes of finding jeans and trousers small in the waist and wide in the hip. They barely exist! I love your blouse!!!

daisymay said...

Love that shirt and you look good in the trousers!

Pretty Pirate said...

You look cute in pants too and what a great top!! I have recently started parting my hair in the middle too. I am trying to grow out my fringe after having it for 10 years, it's a pain.

I know how you feel! I have trouble finding high waisted pants that are still fitted in the hips and butt. My area is still stuck in the "let's show off our thongs" style.

Well, indeed. You look fabulous in those trousers. I love the shirt and your hair is beautiful as per usual.

Have a great day.

That shirt is cuteness itself.

Could I ask a favor? More hair shots would be lovely. Usually want to see the back.

Thanks!

The pants look great but the top is particularly fantastic! Is there anything you don't look stunning in?!

gorgeous outfit!!!

I was just thinking when I saw the first photo that you very rarely wear trousers, before reading what you wrote =) But trousers go nicely on you, it seems. I make all my trousers and jeans myself because I never find fitting trousers from shops. They are, like you said, too wide on the waist or too tight on the hips. And on me the front comes usually little bit too high up and the back is too low. Maybe you should try making your own trousers aswell, you do quite a bit sewing so it shouldn't be a problem =)

lovely shirt!

Olivia Rouge said...

my mom also uses that sentence! So maybe it's kinda official at least :)

I am so dying to have a good pair of trousers, since i'm not always into putting on stockings and other fancy stuff or my worst nightmare, tights, when i for example go to work.. but it's a mission impossible to find that perfect pair of trousers since i have that same problem, smaller waist but huge behind and thighs..

But your trousers look absolutely fab!

The trousers look really good on you! And the wrap around blouse is so cute.

You should really try the Big Beautiful Barbara Brown 40's trousers. They're high wasted, tight in the waist and at least on me, there's even a little leftover space in the hips so they just might do the trick for you.. And the good thing: you can try mine before ordering so you'll know for sure. At least I find it hard returning stuff I've ordered, too much work...

(Btw, it's an "official" saying, the legs looking like a pair of barn doors. I've heard it many times (at least in Finland).)

Due to my height and my slim waist I have pretty much the same problem with high waisted pants. However, I found a pair from SNOB. Had to get the waist tailored down for a few bucks, but now they are perfect (at least to me*g*):

I like the hair-do. How about showing us how you did it? I have long hair which I love to keep up and love all sorts of old twisted bun styles. But it's also good to learn more ways of doing the hair up in new ways. I like the shirt too:)

Hi dear...I 'borrowed' one of your ideas for accessorizing in one of my videos. I'm going to link you in the side bar...I'd never thought to wear a scarf AND flowers w/ my gibson roll but I love the look of it so I'm doing that today. I won't be using the photo in the video but I will link it in the side.

Kiss kiss!

yes, i know, i have the same thing, not small enough waists to bigger hips. i just wear skirts a lot, and think my shape is old fashioned hourglass shape. by the other comments, we're obviously not alone in our trouser dilemma!

Vanessa said...

You look lovely in trousers, but I have to agree with you on dresses. They're comfy and flattering, and I totally wish I had as many as you do. You have no idea how much wardrobe envy I direct your way :-P

It's a rare day you'll see me in trousers too- about twice in the last year and a half to be precise!
But you look fabulous in yours, that's such a sweet top.
I randomly decided to have a centre parting today too! But it isn't behaving and will no doubt be back in the side in the morning.
