All Tomorrow’s Parties

Zara sweater, pants c/o Shoppalu & Lucca Couture, H&M belt,

Look at me in palazzo pants…I’m really just filled to the brim with surprises as of late. Surprises involving pants (that’s it really, everything else is the same). I’ve got to say, I was really nervous about styling this silhouette at first (as I always am with pants), but after some coaxing from my lovely friend Cee and Janice of Shoppalu, I decided to give them a spin. I ended up having so much fun in them…since there’s so much fabric on the bottoms, you get that cool swishy feeling as you walk around. I may have enjoyed the swishiness a bit too much actually, people were looking at me oddly because I kept swinging my legs out like a weirdo.

Speaking of being a weirdo, I may have legitimately started losing my mind. One of my friends and I spent about an hour pretending to be mobsters from Goodfellas yesterday while trying to work on an assignment in class. My role went something like this: “Now listen Johnny, and listen good…I’m a made man…you touch me and you’re dead.” It was really, really funny to us at the time, but my throat hurts today from making my voice so hoarse and scary. That and the losing my mind part. That’s unfortunate too.

Needless to say, we need a break before we entirely lose it. As the title implies, I’m keeping my mind on all the holiday fun that will soon ensue to keep myself going as we keep trekking through the next few weeks from hell. I also have a little preemptive Whistler getaway with a couple girlfriends next weekend to look forward to, should be amazing to get out of the city for a bit!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far!

    Since it's so cold I bet Whistler will be all wintery when you get there! Those palazzo pants are so unique… I can definitely see how they'd be fun to swish around in πŸ™‚

    I honestly think I'd be too chicken to try to pull off those pants, but they look great on you! The mix of patters is lovely and the blue scarf looks stunning!

    You are rocking those pants like no other. We knew they would look so fabulicious on you! You're such a beaut!


  • Reply lisa November 16, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Haha I can't judge. During our busy period, my manager and I obsessively watched any and every Youtube clip featuring Shrek's Puss in Boots and cooing over how cute he was.

    Re. your comment: Yes, I'll be at BeautyMark tonight and I'm planning to stop by the Joe Fresh preview tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you!

    Yes to the pants phase! The palazzo silhouette makes you super statuesque. And the fact that they are polka dot just makes things them even more covetable!

    The gloves, the sleek pony and that Minkoff bag (love!) really pull the whole look together.

    Wow, those pants! You definitely rock them and you did a great job on styling them. Almost in a "yes, palazzo pants – what else" kind of way (no clue that makes sense) πŸ™‚

    Alexandra how do you keep putting together such gorgeous outfits! this one is very different but I actually really like it. and lol to you and your friend. my friends and I pretend to be different characters all the time now I think it's the pressure from all the assignments being due and exams coming up haha!
    have fun at Whistler!

  • Reply Cee November 17, 2011 at 3:31 am

    I knew these pants were the right choice! So glad you went home with them, they look just fabulous on you and they make such a statement in these photos. I can't really blame you for getting some enjoyment out of the swishing noise, too- I probably would have done the same (although undoubtedly I would have just annoyed Ian with it at home for hours.) Hope you had a fun at Barefoot today- I exercised my self-control, but probably only because my blogger partner in crime wasn't there πŸ˜‰

    Oh man are palazzo pants back?! I thought it was a maxi skirt till I read your caption lol. You are tall and graceful enough to pull these off! I however, should never ever be allowed to wear such pants haha

    hilarious role playing scenario, now i wanna sneak into your class for kicks, it sounds like such fun : ) yah to a Whistler get-away too – i'm hoping to pay that village a visit soon. it always makes me feel like i've been transplanted to Switzerland or something, so close but seems so far. love it!

    i went off facebook recently, shut er' down so i'm not eligible for your rad giveaway but high in the sky shout outs to that awesome shop, love BC and all its beautiful contents!!! happy Sunday! xo β™₯
