SpicyCandyDC 's thoughts:

So after wearing these H&M pants to the Rock the Vote event last Thursday, I decided to do a post with them because so many people loved them and thought they were a high end designer, and I just had to share with the world that they were only $19! I’ve been lusting after a good pair of striped pants ever since images of Taylor Tomasi Hill started popping up everywhere after Milan Fashion Week – I mean if one person can make a trend popular, I think she single handedly did just that. But I’m also glad I didn’t jump the gun and drop the original $150+ I was planning on spending and found these instead. Anyway, the point of the story isn’t my continuous obsession with this trend (which really is getting out of control), but the fact that I found the perfect pair without breaking the bank. Which brings me to my next point. Fashion doesn’t have to be too expensive if you know how to mix and match the right way. One way I learned to do that this year is by cutting out a lot of clutter and unnecessary impulse purchases and only investing in timeless, quality pieces like great shoes (hence these Alexander Wangs that I wear almost every day), bags (like this Botkier Valentina I bought last year), and of course I’m lucky to own a jewelry boutique so my jewels are taken care of. So when it comes to trendy pieces like these pants, I feel much better spending $19 not $190 because I know that as much as I love them right now, the trend probably won’t last past this summer. To me, fashion is as much about experimenting with new trends as it is building a good base. If you learn to reach that perfect balance you’re one step closer to style bliss – or so I like to tell myself! :)
