Given the obvious biting cold settling in on most parts of the northern hemisphere, one would think I'd be raving about the sweater or cashmere sales, like everyone else. Unfortunately, I'm not everybody else. I will mention that my fave sweater dress of the season is now 50% off at Seven NY, Christian Wijnants' dyed interwoven sweater dress. *tickled*
I've taken a tumble, instead, for Trovata's Spring 09 sequined hot pants, or bikini briefs, really. They seem a tad risqué, I know, but I've been in love with them since I saw them on Trovata's runway in September. Okay, maybe I'd prefer an inch more of fabric attached, especially to reduce the shorts' über-convexity or ― how do I say? ― pelvic- and derriere-grazing attribute; which lends itself more to the underwear variety of clothing than typical clothing. The sequins, of course, should convey the fact that it's not a piece of underwear, but you never know... HA!
Notably, Karl Lagerfeld did put out the perfect sequined short shorts, two spring seasons ago. Certainly the appropriate revival of the burlesque shorts with just the right measure of an inch and a half inseam. (I need that entire outfit please, thanks.)
So how do I get my style fix ASAP?? Patricia Field's high waist sequin shorts!! I'm a little concerned about the nature of the material used. I can see the outline of the shirt tucked in the shorts. Eeck!! I think I'll google 'sequined shorts' or search out shoppes which sell dance gear and see what I come up with. **Ooh, I just found this pair at Oli UK. They look five sizes too big on the model; but I kinda like 'e a little. The sequins don't pop as much though.
