You know those pieces of clothing in your wardrobe that you just abhor one moment, and then a few weeks/months/maybe even years later, you absolutely love?
These pants are a shining example of all of the above.
The story? I wanted to dress comfy. The true story? I didn’t want to wear sweatpants.
Sammy D loathes sweatpants. [but yes, sometimes I wear them]
Either way, after scouring my collection for anything 90s related for the Fresh Prince of New York party/fundraiser I’m styling this Sunday evening [promotional tout: GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!!], I remembered that I had these wool, late 80s/early 90s gems from the closet of Mama D.
And because the snowpocalypse had hit the previous week and I still needed to wear the loathed galoshes that have proven SO useful to me over the past few weeks … well, the rest of the story is history. True history, might I add.
Read on for the Cliff Notes.
Editor’s note: This is a late post. I was in Philadelphia working for #roadtrip2010 project [Sammy D TV video update coming soon on all of that].
