are harem pants ever a good thing?
I want to say yes, that depending on the fabric and cut, these roomy pants will keep from being Hammer-esque. After all, Jeannie snagged an astronaut in her flowy pink pair. From the window of a speeding bus, I thought I saw a girl wearing a purple floral pair successfully. I am determined to pull off harem pants. I truly believe that it's all in the fabric. In an alley off Istiklâl on Wednesday, I found the cutest store with the sweetest salesgirl, she had Cleopatra-lined eyes and was super friendly.
So I bought this black pair at Roll. Roll has a fun selection of creative and affordable clothing and accessories. While I don't think these pants are the ones— they sure are comfortable and I love wearing them around the house. They put me in a good mood.
On a separate note, I've completed the first in a series of 7 drawings of my grandmother, Yvonne. I never had the chance to meet her, but she feels so familiar to me from all the stories my aunts and father have told me. She was a beautiful, stylish and strong woman, who loved history and films. It's no wonder my grandfather had fallen in love with her at first sight.
I plan on giving one drawing to each of her children— my father, my aunts and my uncle.
