These harem pants were purchased sometime early last year from H&M and have been sitting at the back of my closet, forgotten, until this past weekend. I paired them with a white v-neck t-shirt, animal print scarf (for visual interest), my old brown leather jacket (maybe more than 10 years old) and my Jeffrey Campbell’s and wore this outfit to a condo board meeting on Saturday. I know harem pants were meant to have a looser fit, but I actually love the fact that these were a little snug.
BTW, I still get a lot of questions and reactions on my Jeffrey Campbell’s. My Dad saw me in them for the first time a few weeks ago and asked “dem deh still a wear?” I guess it took him back to the 70’s when platforms were all the rage. The two most popular questions I get are “how do you walk in those” and “how much did you pay?” They are platforms, so they are actually not difficult to walk in. (I spent an entire day in NYC wearing these). As for the cost, these are not the Litas, they are the Solvangs and I was lucky enough to find these online for less than $100.00 last summer. GoJane.com (see here and here) and Lulus.com (see here) has a similar look for less than $50.
For those of you who are fascinated with the clog boots (fyi, Jeffrey Campbell is the original clog style boot), here is a slide show of Litas for you to swoon over this Monday.
