PLEATHER


Today I tried on a pair of stupidly awesome pleather pants. 
For about twenty seconds they were totally coming home with me, 
and then common sense won out. 

Common sense is so boring sometimes.

  1. AH I hate common sense! I wanted to buy this really cute shirt the other day, but my common sense said "duh you can't afford that girl!" GRR!

  2. How sweet is it that you can fit into cute pleather pants, tho?? Well, I guess I could fit into pleather pants, but I don't think it'd be all that cute... LOL

  4. Put on a pair of peep toe stilettos and you are totally Olivia Newton John in Grease!

    PS. I have been meaning to tell you for ages that I think of you every time I watch Beauty and the Beast with my daughter (which is shamefully frequent). During Gaston's big solo number I have to smile when he sings "I use antlers in all of my decorating...." and I think of you and your little house in Moscow.

  5. You can totally rock those pants! I myself tried a pair on in H&M the other day....but sadly, it was a no-go. I love reading about your daily adventures in the big city!

  6. A good friend of mine came up with the "pining rule." If you pine for something after you leave the store, especially for any length of time, you are meant to go back and get it. It sounds like there is some serious pining going on here... Plus, you look awesome in them. Plus, to second Kjrsten, you will totally wear them everywhere!!

  7. I'm sorry to say that I now HAVE to hate you for being able to wear those pants so shortly after having had a baby.

  8. I'm with Jenny (and sadly, also, GreerAnn) - the pining rule is a good one. I generally don't like rules, but that's a keeper. That's how I know I REEAALLY want something and haven't just glazed over from looking at all the piles of STUFF in the stores.

  9. okay, I am going to go against popular opinion here and say DO NOT BUY THOSE PANTS!! Seriously, will you EVER wear those and not feel completely ashamed of yourself?? (Although they do fit nice on you!) They are COMPLETELY out of style, unless, of course, you want to look like a hooker or slutty type person (and you have too much class for that!). I implore you, DON'T BUY THEM!! :)

  10. Thank you SO MUCH, Nat! I'm so excited about the picture!

    And you totally should have bought the pants. Does it really matter where you would have worn them? They look great on you!

  11. You are looking great! Way to step out and try something different. Not many women go for the "sexy" look after having a baby so soon. And Heidi Klum doesn't count! and you pull it off great.

  12. One of my professors showed us this clip in class and I thought of your Jonah post and thought you might enjoy it.

    Also, I had a pair of pleathers in the sixth grade, they were deathly hot to wear for any length of time.

  13. I know a movie called Get Shorty...I wanted that drawing bad but I am glad you won...in the spirit of the season and all. Nat, you rocked those pleathers!

  14. When you look THAT good in pleather pants, you can get away with wearing them anywhere. Think how proud the Holbs would be to walk alongside his pleather pant wearing baby mama. Forget common sense.

  15. I can't believe how teeny you are so quickly after having the Hucklebaby. And really common sense is so dull most of the time. For instance I wanted these pointy toed, shiny, very high heeled black boots the other day....I am in love with them. But my common sense says that I would never have anywhere to wear them in Oklahoma.
