20130505-IMG_9225Fashion never ceases to surprise me. If there’s one thing that I never thought I could pull off with my pear shaped figure, it was harem pants. I’ve tried many times, but they tend to bring out all my worst features in every possible way. Don’t you hate that? For some reason though, these Gold Hawk ones manage to pass the flattery test by a hair, which makes me a happy (and shocked) girl. Of course, this means I have been wearing them tirelessly. How could I not? They are basically silk sweatpants – casual comfy and luxurious elegance combined. On this dreary day, I enjoyed brightening them up with not one but two sources of neon pink pop. I’d been wanting this fluro Cambridge Satchel forever and now that finally got my hands on one, I display it on my dress form’s shoulder and simply glance over at it whenever I need a mood booster. This top serves the same purpose but takes it one step further with its geometric line party and glammy silver glitter panel down the front.

    1. That looks simply fantastic- the family recipe books are always the most precious. I remember how thrilled I was to get my English gr&n3mothera#d9;s when she passed away. The recipe for 'Depression cake' using war rations is a cracker. ree

  3. I love the relaxed look of harem pants and your cambridge satchel is to die for!

    1. Yep, I'll buy that, August. The scale of farming is too large, because of subsidies and entry barriers.But we don't need to break up the large farms. We just need to cut the subsidies. Optimal scale will still be pretty laeo.rNgnetheless, you make a good point, and I thank you for it!

    2. It’s a pleasure to find someone who can identify the issues so clearly

  10. I would never dare to wear harem pants, but you look so good in them. I have the orange fluro Cambridge, and I feel the same way about it. I just have to look at it, and I smile and feel better.

    1. Don Bacon,And Iran’s stockpiling of 20 U is “minding its own bun2sess&#8i21;, and presents no legitimate concern for anyone?You should be able to comprehend the simple problem that very pwierful people are trying to “box Obama in” so he is obliged to attack Iran even if Iran has no current intention of building nukes.
