colormenana 's Thoughts:

I had Monday off from school. It was a beautiful day with just the perfect amount of warmth that I could wear my sandals out after work. I find it funny that this outfit sort of contradicts itself. It’s like a war between the sandal and the scarf, and I am trying to make peace between the two. With the funky, oscillating weather patterns in Southern California, an outfit contradiction just happens. Sometimes its too hot and sometimes its too cold. It’s always changing and you have to be prepared for it. Anyway, these high-waisted trousers were a DIY project. I found these babies in my mom’s pile of old clothes that she was going to donate. I was helping to organize the pile when my eyes landed on these. I knew right away that I could make them work. They are vintage Italian and of such a nice knitted fabric. They were originally wide-leg trousers, but thanks to a few snips and some time on the sewing machine, they are now tapered to perfection. And they have these really cool metal pieces in the front that I thought were so unique. I really like the little bit of slouch that remind me of the Chloe Fall 2009 runway show. I will be wearing these all season! My obsession with the new trouser style has really sparked an obsession with shoes. I am in desperate need of a greater variety of shoes in my life, preferably flats. A pair of dressy black leather oxfords would be nice right about now, especially to pair with trousers like these, and all my little dresses. I am also dreaming about a fun pair of short cowboy boots and a girly pair of mary-janes. But what is a girl on a budget to do?

P.S.
The title of this post is just a reference to the song Replay by Rocky City featuring DeKay. It’s just that I cannot get it out of my head. The chorus is just so catchy. I love all music from classic rock and hip hop to country crooners and indie melodies that only my friends know about. But right now, I’ve really been getting into all the R&B and hip hop out there. I really like music that makes you just want to get up and dance.
