I desperately needed black pants for work so out of desperate desperation, I went to the mall. I popped into Winners first. This pair of blingin' Vans (or "Punkyrose" if you actually read the label) had been there forever. I nearly passed them by, but I noticed they were on uber-sale for $13 so I picked them up.
You see, I've kind of admired Vans ever since I saw this random Myspace pic. I figured it's best to work a cheap pair into my style before I splurge $50 on a pair.
I found a pair of black skinny pants at Le Chateau that was originally $90, reduced to $30. That alone made me happy, but I tried them on and they actually fit. And, they came with a pair of skinny suspenders! (Detour to the Body Shop: bought a concealer pencil). Old Navy was next. I found another pair of black skinny pants that fit perfectly, so I bought those and ended up taking a nice brown sweater too. Here is a picture, though it is fairly indistinguishable because it's brown colour mixes so well with the navy of my Armani shirt.
I went to Chapters to read for a bit and discovered i-D magazine. Of course everyone in the fashion world knows about i-D, but I had only fleetingly browsed through it before instead of soaking up it's true ambience. I realized it featured everything I adore in it's Jeremy Scott/Devon Aoki issue.
