But like always I say as I don't do and do as I don't say. Wait...what did I just say?
But anyways, there is more to this story. So recently (not eons ago anymore), the high waisted look has somewhat come back in style to those that are willing accept that there is life out there beyond hiphuggers. This summer I went to the mall and found these shorts that I liked.. a LOT. However, my inner cheapness kicked in and I couldn't even manage to let go of 15 precious dollars. They were shorts that were, gasp, high waisted. Wait! Let me redeem myself! They had this band of vertical buttons, so it wasn't really as hideous as the 80's versions because really they were like a belt attached to the shorts. See, I'm not that bad.
After nights of longing for those black shorts of perfection, I decided screw that! I will make my own high waisted shorts of fury. And boy are they furious, they are a brightly angry hot pink/magenta color that make my fashion buds prickle with delight! They are wonderfully ugly with its pleats and its rise as high as the eiffiel tower. And even better they match my tri color boots of glory.
Originally I got these pants at my local thrift store's $5 a bag sale. I wanted colorful pants and I wanted to skinny-fy (hehe..) them so I could be another mindless robot following the colorful skinny jeans trend. Once I got home to try on my loot I was sadly disappointed that they didn't frickin fit. I did not want to my internal organs to be strangled. That's not the way I imagine my death thank you very much. Size 10 back then must have been a stick.
So this week, was my sewing/DIY marathon. Since summer school finished, I had nothing better to do than turn those high waisted ugly pants into these high waisted ugly shorts!
Side note: Today I did my one man fashion shoot meaning that I was both model and photographer. How did I manage you may wonder because surely that seems impossible! You can't be two places at once! Well thanks to mr. self timer I can now defy the laws of nature! I was trying to do some shoots for LalaLiu (yes I must talk about my website every post...its discrete plugging) Another thing I realized today:
1. it's frickin hot today and wearing boots and tights outside is like watchin an egg in the frying pan and I would be the egg.
2. there's a reason why there are models and normal folks. And I definately, most definately fall into the normal folks section.
