Thank goodness for stretchy pants

This year, Thanksgiving didn't feel like Thanksgiving.  I had to work.  Then again, I always work on Thanksgiving.  Hubby brought me some Thanksgiving grub for lunch and I stuffed my face like a little piggy.  I'm sorta sick of food right now.  And if you didn't know this already, I'm not a fan of Mr. Gobble.  I prefer the salty yummy goodness that is Mr. Hammy. mmmmmm!!

I wore this to the movies tonight.  We went to see Harry Potter and it was fantastic.  I got these pants last month and I was a bit hesitant about purchasing them because of the HUGE drop crotch, but I'm so thankful for them.  They are the perfect pair of pants to wear after getting your Thanksgiving grub on.  I love how they drape, that it's 100% silk, and the elastic waistband is another added bonus.  I'm also still very thankful for all the things that I was thankful for last year.  Plus, Cheryl Maeda!  She's so talented and has helped me improve my sewing skillz!! :D

So, I'm curious to know, was anyone brave enough to tackle Black Friday?!  Find any good deals?

You look adorable, and might I add skinny in that outfit! I've never tried on a pair of pants like that but they are so cute and so flattering, I might have to give them a shot now. I'm so impressed with how cute & stylish you always are. :) Happy post-Thanksgiving! (p.s. I stuffed myself like a little piggy too).

I didn't tackle Black Friday with the exception of sweeping through and grabbing a few deals after work, but I LOVED working it. Time flew by so quickly!

Kristy said...

Amazing look! and it looks very comfy too, which is perfect for Thanksgiving! I need to start wearing my Mariels again, but it's too cold here :(

If I lived in the States, I would tackle Black Friday NO DOUBT! Would you be my partner in crime? :D Hahahaa...

I didn't do Black Friday. I can't stand the crowds, and I'm still unsure of what I want to buy. :/

Isn't it no fun working on the holidays? I had to work the first Christmas that the hubs and I were married and it didn't feel like Christmas as all. Sort of a bummer.

Those pants look perfect!

Aney said...

I'm not a huge fan of drop-crotch pants, but the silk + drape makes it hard for ANYONE not to want them. They look great on you - along with the paired striped sweater and wedges! I'm a huge fan of brown haha :D

Barneys Lovers said...

I love yours high-heels!! I follow you!

Sharon you are looking gorgeous as usual and I adore the pants!! ADORE a good harem and you carry them off flawlessly!!

Hope you had a marv Thanksgiving even though you had to work...minor confession over here: I've been in the throes of a Harry Potter marathon since yesterday. Hadn't seen a single one prior to now!! I'm hooked!! (a little late though)

i swore never to go to the States on Black Friday again...its too crazy for me. I was in NYC one year and did not enjoy it. I like shopping when no one's around. lol

MeganRose. said...

those pants look really good on you. i'm kind of iffy about drop crotches too but you def pulled them off well. i'm sorry you had/have to work on thanksgiving, at least your hubby came and you get paid time and 1/2! more for black friday right?! and speaking of which, i actually did go. i left my place at 1am and got to downtown sf at 1:30, it was crazy but i did that last year. i found some really good deals at urban outfitters and gap! gap was mostly for all the little ones in my family but i will share soon! did you!? so curious to know what you got! ;)

xxoo,
megan

Jinah said...

Yuck, I'd feel grumpy if I was working on a holiday too. However, you looked so stylish!

And re: Black Friday shopping. This is the first in probably 5-6 years I didn't venture out, and I'm not totally disappointed.

Sarah said...

I'm due a new pair of Thanksgiving pants (well, Christmas pants really) and those drop crotch ones look pretty darn great! Must try and find a similar pair!
