Well, life is trial and error, isn't it? After a lot of great suggestions from everyone (thank you, thank you!) I finally decided on the pair of faux leather pants from Forever 21.

Problem was, they just didn't quite fit me (read: there were rips and I may or may not have cried, there I said it).

Then, on an impromptu trip to the mall to do some last minute shopping for other people, I happened to stumble upon another H&M that I hadn't checked out yet (SF has so many H&Ms, it's a bit ridiculous, actually). Much to my delight, I found this pair waiting for me, the last one in my size.

I've been having so much fun styling them up, I might just have to coax Christine into getting a pair so we can remix it up. What do you guys think?

Blazer: White linen blazer, Urban Outfitters,
Shirt: Printed ruffled blouse, Ann Taylor
Pants: Faux leather pants, H&M

  10. Don't feel bad about Forever21 clothes bursting at the seams! Friday night my ($12) party dress required the help of my boyfriend and friend to get on, and after tugging and tugging at the zipper, it finally went up, and completely split open. Another friend was wearing a F21 dress recently and it just completed exploded and tore away all down the side as she was wearing it. No, it doesn't make you feel good, haha, but DEFINITELY nothing to do with you! ;)

  23. The new leather pants are absolutely perfect! You will get more wear out of them than you can ever imagine. Coincidentally, wearing mine in my most recent post. Check them out and tell me what you think.

  24. f21 will do that.... it's too bad they don't make just a little better quality stuff. the h&m pants look great- i love that store soooo much- the closest one to me is over an hour away- a real bummer.
