WIW, size 14 pants 90's style

So here are the size 14 H&M wide leg cropped pants. I decided to keep the Stella McCartney espadrille sneakers. They're actually really comfortable so far as I was able to run for the bus in them.
T-shirt is true vintage concert from the mid nineties, yikes that was a long time ago. It was the David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails concert. I was living in Portland, OR at the time. My roommate was sorta dating a guy but basically using him for free dinners. Anyways he was a huge David Bowie fan and got tickets for them. I was walking home and she was already in his car heading off to the concert. She jumped out and told me to go the concert with him. I'm pretty sure he was very surprised, but was on the meek side so didn't protest. We had general admission tickets on the floor. Trent Reznor started the concert. Guy didn't care and left me on the floor for that part and went in search of those crappy arena plastic cheese nachos. It was a bit uncomfortable to be alone, surrounded by tons of screaming fifteen year old boys singing at the top of their lungs " I want to **** like an animal" Guy came back in time for David Bowie, who during that tour was not doing his old material. Though there was an absolute amazing variation on "Under Pressure" So I still have the t-shirt and the weird memory. Needless to say their relationship didn't last long.
Worn with a Turkish collar necklace, American Apparel dark purple clutch, and Karen Walker sunglasses.
To be truly nineties I wore brown lipstick, but will probably switch to purple for going out tonight. 
Sorry morning pictures not the best light.

    Great story -- and I saw the same tour. :-) Love the tee so much (why didn't I buy that tee?? I did get a NIN shirt, but it disappeared with an old boyfriend many years ago). Really fun outfit that recalls the 90s but still feels modern. Those shoes are excellent.

    Love the tee. Love the sneaks!

    Great outfit and what a terrific story! I love those sunglasses on you, with your hair and the lipstick you look so cool, from head to funky-sneaker toe!

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    Fab story -- and I love how the colours in the shoes echo the amazing tee. Clutch makes it totally modern. You have amazing style.

    Great way to style wide leg cropped pants.  Love love love the espadrille sneakers, they are artistic soul mates with the sunglasses.  It's not a color bookend effect but rather a style feeling bookend. 

    You are a good story teller.

    I LOVE the sneakers! And the story that so well tells multiple stories at once!
    It's a little too bad the T shirt is tucked in? Next time maybe jeans, T shirt untucked?

    Great story and great outfit!  I love the sneakers and the t-shirt together.  Somehow the colors and graphic nature of the pieces go together.  I'm glad you found some fun pants that fit too.
