Red Leather Valentine

I thought it was nearly impossible to thrift skinny leg black leather pants.  Everytime I found a pair they fit like highwasited mom jeans from the 90s. If you can pull off this style, congratulations. If you are in the other 99% of the population that can't, then you should understand this dilemma. Well one sunny wonderful day (I don't remember if it was actually sunny but that sounds nice) I spotted a pair of Donald J. Pliner leather pants at Goodwill for $5.99.  I think it might have been a price error but who am I to complain? Not only were they skinny leg and in my size, but they were red. Red leather pants? Hell yes!

I had no idea what I was going to do with these newly discovered beauties but I figured my trusty fashion-sidekick would give me some ideas.  I stumbled upon the Isabel Marant and Balmain Fall 2010 collections featuring black pointy toe pumps (check) and black leather jackets (check).  Things were starting to come together.  Then I saw a look from the Bottega Veneta Fall 2010 RTW and realized how romantic and wearable these pants could be and I was sold.  It also didn't hurt to have a little extra style confirmation of their appeal from the sweedish blogger and my designer-closet-daydream lookbook Caroline's Mode.

Well seeing as it's Valentine's day I think it's an appropriate time to showcase my buns get romantic. Wait, there is a very clear shot of my rear. Prepare yourself.  Even more in the spirit of LOVE I took something that makes me happy and sprinkled it with lots of red, pink, and a little rock n' roll. Isn't that what cupid would do?
