Dolman Sleeves and Donna Karan Stirrup Pants

Hubbs and I aren't all that keen on Valentine's Day (other than taking the opportunity to eat giant things made by Reese's) but I still felt like getting a little romantic and nothing says romantic like a dolman sleeve. So here I am, showing the back deck a good time.

I've been feeling these stirrup pants by DKNY super hardcore lately but it hasn't been easy to find a way to wear them because:
  • they taper,
  • I'm short, and
  • I'm not proportionate enough to compensate for the first two problems.
I was pretty determined, though, because I love me some high-waisted pants and these are made extra awesome by the presence of Pockets With Zippers. This is like my Holy Grail. Throw in this whole stirrup pants business and they are just weird enough to secure my fascination.

Don't know who made the dolman sleeve top because some sensible person realized it was a good idea to cut tags out of sheer things, but I got it for $1. Don't worry; it's not silk. Then I'd be doing my party time dance. Stirrup pants from way long ago by Donna Karan, gifted. Caramel spats by Irregular Choice, bought at Daffy's. Betseyville houndstooth cherry bag, gift from Hubbs. Necklace, bangles mostly secondhand from estate sales but one from JessLC.

Living the high life. Cuz, see, I'm on a deck. Oh, hey, isn't this little cherub cute?

I couldn't wear my engagement ring for the longest time because the jerk in the store sized it so my finger looked like a sausage but, apparently, I lost some weight in my fingers. Yay for my ring!

These earrings are unsigned and that bums me out because I want more like them.

    1. I think I remember we talked about that. I finally got my hands on one! One day (like when Hubbs has a job) I'd love to come to SF and shop with you. Unless, you know, you move to NY.
