drape drape does comfy

20140922-213430.jpgi know these aladdin-style knickers from drape drape #1 come in for their fair share of ridicule, but i rather love them.  and here is why.

a month or so ago i was invited to a big girls’ night lasagna dinner on a friday evening, and i was tired, and hungry, and didn’t want to get all dressed up (i know, not even for wine and lasagna.  i am officially a horrible girl friend).  but i had these, already cut, filed away in my area 51 drawer, and pulled them out, fired up the serger, and had a new comfy pair of sweatpants in an acceptable leave-the-house-looking-like-this fashion in about an hour and a half.

paired with my “balls and bayonets brigade” spaghetti strap tank and a jeans jacket, i actually felt like a million bucks.  STEALTH PAJAMAS FTW.

    That’s the awesome thing about harem pants – feel like pj’s, but fierce/fashionable for wearing out of doors.
