THREADS - BLUE VELVET

I have been dying to share these pants for well over a week now!  Ive worn them a few times, but haven't been able to get pics until the other night when we went out with our friend Christie to see the Ataris play.  She came home for a week long visit and we were happy to spend some time with her.  Now that she lives in California, we only see her a few times a year, if that.  She came over and had a little campfire with us too!  

So, back to these amazing pants!!!  They are from Iconoclasp on etsy!  She makes them custom fit to your size, in a few different colors.  I had a pair of blue velvet pants in high school that were my favorites, and I wore them until a huge hole ripped in the butt of them!!  Ive been on the lookout for another pair ever since.  They are a dream come true.  Fit to perfection!!  I kind of can't say enough good things about them.  Its love.  I layered them with some simple tanks and a black knit cardigan.  Along with this beautiful and simple quartz necklace from Run With The Tribe and studded leather bracelets from Moorea Seal.  Run With The Tribe has some amazing new jewelry right now.  My favorite being this single earring.  And you can barely see them, but I wore some of my Blowfish boots with them... so happy its boot season again!

James wore his shirt from Sevenly.  I wish I could affored to get each new shirt that comes out every week, all for amazing causes.  A very cool company.

It was awesome seeing The Ataris right in San Antonio.  James and I listened to them in high school, and for a bit San Dimas High School Football Rules was our song.  Kind of cool to have memories that go so far back, and to be able to revisit them so many years later.  And its great to see bands still doing their thing after so many years as well.  We got to meet and chat with Kris for a bit and he is super nice.  It was a great night.

  7. Daaaang, Ataris! That's awesome you were able catch them. Reminds me of jumping off my parents couch doing air guitar solos and blasting songs that my father hated. Those pants are killer. I'm not really a fan of velvet but those want me to get into it.

  14. Love the pants. I actually have velvet like that to make shorts out of. Maybe I'll make them before fall is over. Otherwise I won't get to it until spring.
