she wears the pants


Have you noticed how I'm always wearing pants these days?! In the past, I'd shunned trousers; being rather small in stature with an hourglassy figure, I decided I "couldn't" wear them. How stupid of me! I can't believe all the fun I've been missing out on. Nothing's more elegant than sharply tailored Katharine Hepburn-esque trousers; styled right, they just ooze Old Hollywood glamour. Very practical, as well, given how bitter cold Vermont is about to get. And most importantly of all, gals of yore loved them some pants too!





So much to love about this one...
("Eatmore". Saddle shoes. The tough girl's smirk. Best picture ever.)

(They call him a "folk singer" on the liner notes which is sorta funny.)

  1. These are some amazing photos! The picture of the lady in the trousers, cardigan and Mickey Mouse t-shirt is incredible - what a dream!

  2. Begin October I bought my first pair of pants after 5 (!!) years of skirt and dresses!

  3. I always avoided trousers for the same reasons, but I've got back into wearing them recently too! They definitely suit you, and I love all these pictures you've found!

  5. Wacky Tacky, that picture's one of my faves too. Usually seeing vintage girls makes me vow to never wear a t-shirt again, but this lady is actually making me want to go out and buy a Mickey t of my own, haha!

    The Snow Child, in addition to the obvious (but perhaps pricey, depending on your region) vintage route, I have found some awesome 40's/menswear looking trousers at the thrift store!

  8. The Eatmore picture is brilliant! It really gives a strong sense of the characters of the three different people. Love it!

  9. Oh what glorious photos Dakota!! I gave up on jeans nearly a year ago, yep, packed them away in lieu of frocks, skirts, proper trousers and leggings. I'm looking forward to seeing how you style your trousers this winter:) xo
