My best thrift to date and though there are MANY other options out there that are beyond covetable....alexander wang....I like how these are high waisted, have a cutesy side tie detail and are loose but short.....without being stripper short.
I've tried a few of the littler fitted options in either genuine leather or some plasticy composite but I either look like a promo girl (no offence intended, I'm just not promo girl material) or like my legs had become two pre-cooked bangers (sausages/snarlers/knock wurst/whatever) wearing a pair of tiny leather shorts. Not ideal. So these feel good for me.
And yes, being thrifted means these babies are old. Pre-loved and broken in.
And yes, that means these are ACTUAL biker shorts that some old biker hag has worn while riding on the back of a Harley....or to a Gang HQ's Christmas do....or both.
Fingers crossed it was a female......
wearing: thrifted crochet top and leather shorts, over knee socks x the warehouse, chemist headband, unseen-tux tee x kmart, 'dilemma' wedges x chaos&harmony via me-tail therapy which do not cause my pidgeon toed ness, that's just me.
Though I have professed my love for my shorty worty's, this doesn't stop me from hunting down a back-up option .....I feel like I'm cheating on them, so I only hunt at night....online...while they sleep. I really would like another pair.
I guess they're a wardrobe staple and since being worn to death, feel they have become a little lacking in the Inspiration Department. I do love them, I do, I do, I do. I'm looking for some with a different, more 'X' x-factor.
The longing for the Wang leather shorts renews itself every day.
But, as if.....my budgetary restrictions confine me to just that....longing.
