Did that title say Faux Leather Pants? But if you read my previous post, you know that I don’t like to buy shoes or clothes made of faux materials. Well, I don’t if there’s a reasonably priced and good quality “real material” alternative. When it comes to pants though, if you want the real deal, you’re gonna be dropping upwards of $500. And honestly, I’m not willing to do that. I’m not a rocker! For me this is just a cute temporary trend. So I decided to break my rule and go for the faux version.
I think these pants by Hue are just perfect! They look great, they’re comfortable (they have a soft stretchy lining) and they were a great price. They also come in a burgundy (sangria) color and I think I will be getting that too!
I have to admit it was a little outside of my comfort zone to wear these skin tight flashy pants so I paired them with their polar opposite – a chunky waffle knit white sweater that covers my bum! The sweater was a great find too – it’s by Michaels Kors and I got it in TJMaxx (yay!) I’ve linked a very similar version here.
And, girl! Can we just talk about these shoes!!! I looove a great heel and if I was a corporate girl, you know I’d be rocking Louboutins and Choos and Valentinos on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the lifestyle of a SAHM is not conducive to that kind of shoe. Between the school bus, gym, and preschool I hardly have the opportunity to wear a nice stiletto. I’m just laughing as I type right now, trying to picture myself running around town in Valentino rockstuds! Wait, I actually did that for this shoot!
Well, yes rockstuds, but not quite Valentinos. These are the greatest dupe that you will find! And I am ok with settling for the dupes right now until I land that corporate job ha ha! They are by BCBGeneration and come in a number of colors. I found mine at DSW.
But back to the pants! You can totally dress them a notch down by sticking with the big chunky sweater and just switching the shoes with either tall boots, or low heel booties. It gives you a less glam, more school-pick-up-line appropriate look. I promise to give it a whirl next time and will update you.
