My first clothing purchase this year

Yeah.. I didn’t think I’d last this long either.

I’ve been trying to find some washed silk pants like these from Aritzia’s Fall/Winter ’09 lookbook but I didn’t want to shell out the cash to buy the real thing.  They look a bit like silk PJ pants but with the right shoes I’m sure it’d look amazing.

I searched for a pair but didn’t see anything worth buying.  This weekend, however, I found these pants from Forever21 (it was on sale for $23.84… seems like its not on sale anymore).   It’s also 100% silk and the inseam is shorter… but it should hit my ankles anyway since I’m small.  I had a $25 gift card from a return in 2009 so it doesn’t affect my budget too much.

I like how they style it with heels and oxfords on the Forever 21 site… I’m planning to wear my Miu Miu oxfords with them as well once the weather gets warmer.
