The title got your attention didn’t it ;)
Mind you I have a thing for unique, retro, weird looking, head turning clothes. So when my eyes spotted these in a fashion magazine a couple of weeks ago..It was love at first sight. I was startled that these historic pants that you might find hanging in the back of the closet of a 90 year old woman were back on the Red carpet. I stared at them with lustful eyes and and without wasting anymore time I went on my quest to find them. I did some research online, and apparently there are VERY few left in the city :O. The worst part was that I didn’t know what they are called. Some call them Aladdin Pants, some named them Ali Baba pants, and some just call them “Poofy pants from the 80’s”. All those names are suitable, but it became quite frustrating explaining it to Sales Associates at every damn store I entered. I searched about 15 stores and at the end, guess where I found them? The place I should have checked first and foremost: H&M. My Fashion Heaven. Even they had a limited stock left, as they were getting sold out pretty FAST. I rushed to grabbed a pair of cotton black ones as soon as my eyes spotted them. They fitted perfectly too! :D I even bought a couple of blazers to make a proper outfit!
Anyways, my craving and lust for these super comfortable, sexy pants has been satisfied. Thought I’d share the story of my quest with you all, and in case you are wondering…no I am not transforming my blog into a fashion/trend blog. I don’t have the creative mind for that. I thought it would be nice to post some nice and light stories for a while. Before I bombard you with some proper emotional, ‘got me thinking’ type of posts that I normally publish. ;)
So enjoy it while you can my lovelies. *kisses*

ps. Does anyone know what the proper name for them is?
