Do you remember the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with the five golden tickets? Just like Veruca Salt, I saw my golden ticket in these pants, beckoning me forward like a shiny beacon from the shop window, and I wanted them NOW. Five minutes later and they were mine.
Although this was definitely an impulse buy, I’m not regretting it one little bit. Every wardrobe needs a few pieces like this to keep things interesting and you can’t deny that these pants have personality. They are the kind of thing that you need to wear with complete confidence, which is why instead of toning them down with something neutral or dark, I decided to keep adding all things shiny.
Personally, I feel like a disco diva in them, and if I had someone walking along behind me with a boom box playing Marcia Hines version of “Disco Inferno”, I would certainly not complain.
I think we all need to look for those pieces of clothing that make us feel a million dollars, put a bit of a bounce in our step and make us feel like people are going to look twice. Whether it’s a sparkly dress, outrageous heels or a pair of golden pants, it’s our privilege as women to wear such things with pride.
