new thrifted leather pants

Yesterday when I left for school my mom was getting all excited because one of our favorite thrift stores was having a leather sale. She was like, "I'm going to get us sooooo many leather pants, Jane!!!" 
I wish I didn't have school so I could have gone too!
But when I got home from school my mom had bags and bags of leather pants. LOL.

Some of them turned out to be definite 'no's but this pair was a definite keeper.
(Also keepesr: cute oversized leather shorts and my mom got this amazing pair of leather culottes that look SO good with her Ann D's)
Leather pants worn with patent Alaia studded gladiators, a borrowed wool coat, AA tank and Alex and Chloe deerhorn neckace+my own cross
pics of other finds to come soon!
Gotta go to school now but maybe some of the leather pants my mom got will make it to the up-and-coming vintage store :)
xx jane

    Great outfit! I always find myself admiring the couch (daybed?) when you pose on it. It looks so comfortable with all the fur :)I’d love to see more pictures of this pair of pants- they look really cool.

    I adore leather pants, in most shapes and forms. Nothing better than a thrifted pair too :)
    The ones in these shots are fabulous. Love them!

    hilarious – musta been leather pants day as i bought a pair at the thrift yesterday too! sadly mine turned out too small. i was really hoping they’d fit like yours there.. but they will soon be a lovely purse and the sleeves to a crocheted sweater:D
    can’t wait to see if/what your mom does with the “no’s.” her refashions are always inspiring.

  73. it’s very easy for leather pants to be so wrong. as ever, you get them so right.
    i can’t believe you’re only 17, your style has the sophistication of someone much older. without ever looking like a young girl wearing clothes that are too old for her.
    i’m gushing a little but you really do deserve all the recognition you get.
