i have been secretly pining for a pair of american apparel riding pants. i've seen them on very fashionable ladies (i'm sure you've seen them too and i totally understand if you don't care for them but as it happens I LOVE THEM) but i just couldn't conceive of paying that much for those pants. i mean serious, $74? AA, i love ya, but no. so i began doing some online reconnaissance. of course, i first hit up ebay, but they never had the color i wanted in the size i wanted for the price i wanted (how dare them). then i started looking at etsy. lo and behold, i found a pair in the exact color i wanted with the exact style i wanted in my size! and the price was perfect!!!! they aren't much of a summer pant though as they are very thick, but for now.....love.
and i didn't really use this bag. actually, i used my regular bag that you guys see ALL THE TIME. but i posed with it, because a) i was bringing it to my shop to sell and 2) because of the color.
i will now talk about issue a). i'm selling it because IT'S NOT REAL! i started looking at it the other day and getting suspicious. the front duck emblem is only glued on! oh the nerve. so i looked online about how to authenticate and well, long story short, it ain't the real deal. so it's in my regular shop for real cheap. boo.
now on to issue 2). remember when i shared some of my outfit inspiration? particularly the outfit from fancy treehouse. well, i loved her whole ensemble, but what really drew me in were the colors. i loved her layering of similar shades. plus, she put a green jacket in there too. so i thought i'd throw in a little green of my own and since it was with me en route to the shop and alllllllll..........
and i do apologize for the grainy pics. i went to my usual spot and it was so flippin bright out! not complaining, mind, but much too harsh for outfit photos. i was running late and on my walk to the shop, i spied this cozy little spot. it looked promising so i set everything up and snapped away. problem was the camera settings were all wrong for the shade and thus the poor quality. i thought about redoing them later, but obvs i didn't. i kinda liked them despite the grain. just think of it as being from a 35mm. yeah, that's it. they're from a vintage FILM camera :)
