My pants are electric.
A while back, Jessie posted a photo on Instagram of her new lighting bolt pants, and I knew immediately that I was going to have to copy her and make them my own. They remind me of two people: My friend, Nubby Twiglet and my sometime spirit animal, David Lee Roth. Honestly, that’s not a bad place to be. I mean, is it possible to say, “I feel like David Lee Roth in these pants,” and have it be a bad thing?!
Jessie bought hers at Trash and Vaudeville (Isn’t it amazing that T&V still exists? Other than Yaffa, I think it’s the only thing on St. Mark’s Place that hasn’t turned over since I was in high school), and I was able to find mine for about 50% off at Karmaloop (sadly sold out). They’re made by Tripp, naturally!
I’ve had these pants for a couple of months now and I still haven’t managed to leave the house with them on. I think once it’s a little less stiflingly hot and humid outside, I’ll feel more confident since I can pair them with boots and a giant cardigan…
