One thing I love about modern work wear is that it doesn't have to be frumpy. Rather than buying traditional suiting pieces, I always try to find things with little special details. Zippers, ruffles, unique shapes, colors, and patterns can all make a huge difference in making a "suit" into an outfit. So naturally when I found these obnoxiously shiny houndstooth print pants
at The Limited, I had to buy them. My first thought was "holiday party" but figured they'd work year round, so I bought them on clearance (with some virtual dollars) which made them like a $10 score and threw them on for a morning meeting (yes, I do get out of the house sometimes).
Oh hey, I didn't see you there. I was just pretending to walk down the street in my fancy pants and must have been caught off guard by the paparazzi. It happens a lot. Anyway, the end of this story is, I love these pants and they really don't go with a lot. The end.
