Honestly, I’m a little bored with new fashions lately; it’s still too cold for sandals, and I can’t keep buying sweaters, even if they’re on sale. And you know, I don’t post about celebrity fashion…so no Oscar posts, and I’m really not into runway shows, or what will be “IN” next Fall. Grechen’s Closet is about SHOPPING, finding new designers, getting great deals, and looking your best every day.
So, on those days I don’t find anything particularly interesting to post about, I’ll give you some insight into my favorite things. The things I wear EVERY day, or can’t live without. Starting with these: the Splendid French Terry Drawstring Pant.
I literally wear these every day. I wear them so often, I’m constantly afraid I will find a hole in them every time I take them off, or that they will disintegrate in the washing machine, never to be found again. I had to cut them at the bottom because they were way too long on me, but on my next pair, I’ll actually get them hemmed. I wear these around the house and out to walk the dog, and mostly in the Winter, because they’re a little thicker than I like to wear in the Summer. they are the perfect weight, with just enough stretch to make them comfortable, but not too much that they don’t keep their shape, or suck me in too much. I just love them.
Yes, they’re pricey at $95, but since I’ve worn them every day for the last 4 months at least, and will continue to wear them next year, they are well worth it. And in spite of the fact that I’m afraid I will find a hole, I don’t think I will. These pants are holding up incredibly well, and they also really haven’t frayed much at the bottom where I cut them. I would like to wear these pants for the rest of my life, so whenever I find a code (they’re never on sale) for these, I will by 20 pairs and stockpile them for years to come. Really. You should too 🙂
