When I bought these trousers twenty years ago, they were a whim that I figured would get a few wears before being discarded. Well, was I ever wrong! Each year they get dragged out, and thanks to the elastic waistband, I've been able to wear them as maternity clothing as well (and believe me, there isn't much out there for a pregnant lady to wear come Christmas time). Red crushed velvet palazzo pants won't get much wear outside of December, but it is nice to know I have something to wear should the need arise to look halfway festive.
I swear, I DO clean the bathroom mirror.
Of course, I think we all know my idea of "festive" isn't about to be limited by a pair of crushed velvet trousers. No sir, if there's an opportunity to wear too much-and then add a bit more, I'm all over it.
