Fashion Roadkill of the Day: Vol 46

It's only February and already so many people have broken their resolutions not to wear leather pants in public. A pair of leather pants is like that ex-lover you keep going back to even though you know too well they're no good for you. One alluring whiff of that unmistakable premium cowhide and before you know it, all the rest of your clothes are thrown aside.

Doesn't the thrill of flouting all the fashion rules make you feel baaaaad (but in a good way)? A studded strap and comfy goodness that's the most perverted thing I've seen you do yet.

This sort of temporary gratification is ok if you know your boundaries. But when your shoulders and knees start feeling embarrassed for you, I think it's time for friends to stage an intervention.

Once you've past a certain age, certain liberties are no longer for taking. Just accept that things have changed. You've grown a little older, a little wiser...also a little taller.

In the clear unobscured light of day, it is painfully obvious that the leather of yesteryear no longer meets your princely and sophisticated needs. It exited ungracefully sometime in the late 1980s, together with shoulderpads and a skintight fit around your legs. The only time you should ever encounter it is in highly circumspect circumstances. I don't know what sort of business transaction is going on here but I'll wager it involves talcum powder of merchantable quantity.

Another site to visit: The Museum at FIT - The first exhibition to examine the multi-faceted career of Lucien Lelong will open at the Fashion Institute of Technology on February 28, 2006.

Ugh. The furthest I go with leather is shoes and bags! No thanks to the rest.

Oh yes, and anyone seen the episode of Friends when Ross wears a pair of leather trousers and goes on a date. He gets so hot and sweats so much *at his date's house* that he goes to the toilet to peel them off and air out for a bit, but because they've been wet they shrink and he can't get them back on.

In a panic, he calls Joey who advises him to use talcum powder to try and slip them back on. Needless to say it doesn't work and makes a mess. She's standing at the door asking if he's OK, but he can't come out and he ends up looking like the pervert.

Your pictures scared me and I'm afraid to go out of my house now, in case I run into one of those leather pant wearing women. ~shudder~

Um WTF were they thinking?! ~sigh~ Apparently age doesn't always bring wisdom.

Say no to Mary Janes, at least with those pants. Oh and if your over the age of 10.

I like that style I think it's one of the best ones because I use to wear like that, actually my boyfriend loves when I wear my tight leader pants.
