Sweatpants It Is

Gray sweatpants, Norma Kamali for Walmart. White jersey top and necklace, Forever 21. Tuxedo jacket, Express. Silk clutch w/gold accent, vintage. Black leather open-toe boots, BCBG. Gold abstract ring, Kenneth Cole.

My sweatpant trousers finally came in the mail and I couldn't be happier. I know people say Walmart is the anti-Christ but how could that be so when they made such sublimely cozy pants and they arrived just in time for the post-Thanksgiving Day bloat? If sweatpant trousers are good enough for Hanna MacGibbon to wear at her Fall '09 show for Chloe, well, they are certainly good enough for me to spend $15. of my food budget on them. Indeed, Satan does take many forms...

I was able to coax my dad away from the pumpkin pie long enough to take these pictures over at our local college. Isn't it amazing what a professional photographer wielding a really good camera can do in just a few minutes? I'm so lucky to have such a talented photographer and artist for a father. With enough encouragement and gentle prodding he may eventually start his own blog to showcase some of his work; until then these photos will have to do.

And the lurker in the background of the second to last photo is just Jer, firmly affixed to his iPhone, checking hockey scores. Of course.
