Patent Paperbag Trousers

Right off the hanger these pants might get an “ewww” sound or “what in the…” comment followed by the, “who’s going to buy that?” statement. Me, this girl right here. I avoid Target like the plague because I can’t go in there for just one thing. I usually end up leaving with six different items that I did not intend on buying, knew that I needed and/or wanted, while of course, forgetting to buy what I actually walked in there for. On that usual Target trip, this happened. I was supposed to be buying only a moisturizer and I walked out with these pants. While I hurriedly sifted through the sale rack, I came across these pants, I quickly inspected them, threw them in my cart and purchased them (without trying them on).

Outfit Details

Once I got home, I tried them on and they fit like a glove. I was lucky enough to buy them at $10.99 in store but they are actually, $32.99 online (why?). So if you are interested in purchasing these, just stop by your local Target to see how much they have them for there. I will admit that these can be a bit intimidating because ALL eyes will be on you but once you have them, all those fears will go away. I wanted a simple chic outfit so I paired the pants with a silk ribbed tank top and for a little bit add more edginess ( or bad-assery) a pair of spiked Steve Madden heels.
