Outfit of the Day, Vol. 11: Current/Elliott Crazy Pants

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun

Full shot of the crazy pants! — a.k.a. the Skinny Ankle Jean in Canvas Boa.


They’re by Current/Elliott, and just like a real boa constrictor’s belly, they stretch.

That’s my favorite thing about ’em. They’re stretchy, and very forgiving when I’m feeling bloated…or when I’ve “accidentally” partaken of one too many free cheesecake samples at the Tuesday night farmers’ market, whoops!

But even though they’re stretchy, they don’t stretch out so much that they’re hanging off my butt by the end of the day.

Score! πŸ™‚

I found this pair on sale last month at Hautelook. They’re not on sale there right now, but I did see them (unfortunately, full price) at Revolve Clothing and Bergdorf Goodman.

SINCE THE PATTERN IS KINDA LOUD, I usually try to keep the rest of the outfit simple, like with a loose-fitting white tee. This one’s by Caslon, the Nordstrom house brand, and here’s another one that’s similar.

Here I’m also wearing the shirt with a gray Band Oh underneath, and for accessories, a stack of silver bracelets/bangles and a pair of black platforms/sandals.

This pair of Michael Kors platforms was my birthday present to myself last year, but here’s a pair of black sandals by Fergie that I think would also totally work with this outfit (and they’re on sale now for $44.90 after 50% off).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Wow, it’s almost 9 o’clock already?! How’d that happen?

What are you up to tonight? Okay, I have 5 minutes before Tuttimelon closes… I wonder if I can make it.

Drat! Probably not.

  13. GIIIIRRRRL those shoes are way hot! I’ve been spending most of my shoe fund on Comme Il Faut tango shoes – they’re like the loubies of the Tango world. I have a problem with stilettos.

    • Karen says:

      Thanks! πŸ™‚ They’re surprisingly really comfy.

      Ooh, Loubies of the Tango world. I love that! Do you have a pair that you absolutely love? Please share!

      Hope you had a nice Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? Tomorrow I’m going to brunch with the fam in San Francisco. Then we’re probably just going to hang out in the city. Fingers crossed that it will be a sunny day.

      • Nina says:

        We took Friday off and we just mucked around – nothing too demanding. We had Malaysian food for dinner.

        Saturday is another lazy day but we are actually going out at night – which is a rare occurence. We are meeting the Hubs’ cousin and a couple of friends for dinner.

        Happy happy birthday! You totally deserve nothing but the best day today and always!
