how to wear sequins pants

Another year has come and gone and what do I have to show for it? Well, a fully functioning two year old, a roof over our heads and these sequins pants.... which are quite possibly the best purchase I made all year. From the moment I saw them, I just knew we'd have so many fun nights ahead of us. They basically mesmerized me like a disco ball.

There's a lot to the life and story of these pants. Not only was it basically serendipitous that the pants and I found each other late last April, we met at the best thrift store in the city to find fancy things at a discount - Housing Works. Which means, I got them for a serious bargain. Like $30 bargain. Good thing too since it's really only respectable to wear them like six weeks of the year (Nov. - Jan. ). After that, it's just a bit odd to have on that much sequins in public outside of the general holiday months.

As if the discovery of them wasn't grand enough, as I went to try them on, the realization occurred.... they have a drawstring top. You know what that means? I could eat Thanksgiving dinner in these puppies. They are like sweatpants covered in sequins. Well, weighted sweatpants. My legs kind of get a workout with them on. So I guess that is also a bonus.

With their arrival into my life, I could barely contain my excitement for holiday parties.... that were seven months later. Here's the hard truth about sequins pants.... they are loud. Like, really loud. I'm all for a solid statement piece, but sequins pants can get a bit 'Vegas Clubbin' real fast. How to wear them in a polished manner was a bit of a conundrum for weeks. Finally, I found my inspiration.  Helpful, cause they are literally the same pants. I love how the top half combo of a sweater and jacket helped tone-down the bottom half a few notches. I started referring to this as my 'mullet outfit'.... business on the top, party on the bottom. That, and I had both of a blazer and grey sweater in my closet already, so that's always helpful.
