"He who is brave, is free." ~ Seneca



Believe it or not, I was one of those people who swore would never buy disco pants, as I was afraid they would never look good on me. It was only after I tried them on in the store and felt how comfortable they were (not to mention, they did look very nice with the jumper I was wearing on the day!), that I had to man up, and buy a pair. Haha! To some they may seem like glorified leggings, and even if this is the case, I still think they look and feel better!

There's a lesson to be learned here...can't knock'em, till you try'em!

I've worn them every other day since I purchased them and gosh, they go with everything. Today I wore them with this stripy number, sported a vampy plum lip and threw on my Yeti for warmth's sake! And that extra bit of fur peeking out is actually my feather bag, one of my favourite bags, ever! :)

Disco Pants : American Apparel
Top : New Look
Ombre Faux Fur Coat (aka Yeti) : H&M
Boots : New Look
Bag : River Island
Earrings : Urban Outfitters
Bangle : H&M
