EBEW: Colored Pants

I really, really wanted to call this post "One dolla holla". Because I found these pants at a thrift store (yesterday, in fact) for JUST ONE DOLLAR. I must have been thrifting at some crappy stores, because I have never purchased a pair of pants for a dollar before. IT'S BLOWING MY MIND!!

But it's Everybody, Everywear, and I just feel like I should give credit where credit is due. After all, if it weren't for EBEW, I wouldn't even own these awesome pink pants. Yeah, I bought them just for the challenge. I really wanted red pants, but there weren't any good ones in my size and I didn't have time to buy a white pair and dye them.

Tshirt: Old Navy
pants, cardi and shoes: thrifted
necklace: The Limited

So these pants do have one drawback: they're a bit short. Or rather, my legs are just kind of almost freakishly long. Whatevs. Either way, I think these look even better cropped...I'll probably hem them to capri length at some point, whenever I can make it over to my grandma's sewing machine house. Sadly, this may be the last time (or at least, one of the last times) I expose my bare legs this season. It's getting cooler...and I'm not ready for it :(

Oh well. At least with the discovery of this thrift store (thanks Chasity for telling me about it!), I can bulk up my fall wardrobe. And I can probably do it for under $30. Awesome.

  1. Awesome job thrifting those pants for just 1$! I love the colour of them :)

  2. DOLLA HOLLA! So cute, and such a fabulous color. Love them with the grey and white. I found you through EBEW, but I'm wearing red pants today--stop by and say hi if you get the chance.

  3. These pants make your legs look 25 miles long. The color is pretty awesome too :)

  4. Those are so cute! I almost bought pink jeans before I found my red cropped trousers. They look awesome on you, congrats on the great deal!!

  5. Great pants! I am into colorful pants lately :)

  6. Glad you liked it! We are so going on the 27th of September! Everything is half off!

  7. Fantastique! I love that when I navigated over to EBEW your post was right next to Rebecca With an R's--you two have very similar looks, but in fun, different ways. :)

  8. $1!! That's crazy. They look great, perfect for fall!

  9. I'm so glad that EBEW pushed you to try something new. And at a buck, that price can't be beat! You'd be a fool to pass those up! They look great.
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

  10. I like your solution to the short legs on the pants. I like the pushed up effect rather than trying to roll them up. Sounds like you've found a winner of a thrift store.
