Thine eyes deceiveth not! I legit cannot remember the last time I wore pants in public. But these were $1 at Shalom Shuk (for non-Burlingtonians: an awesome thrift shop run out of a synagogue), and they have fruit on them, so. Even when you’re committed to an aesthetic, you can’t always resist the call of the Other.
I won’t be abandoning dresses and skirts anytime soon. But these are the first pants I’ve felt comfortable in for a long time. That’s…kind of remarkable, given that I’ve basically built my entire wardrobe around my hatred of and discomfort in pants. There’s hope for me yet.
