The Killers!


Last night my friend Kendra and I saw The Killers, one of my very favorite bands ever. Of course they were amazing and we both had a blast (It's her birthday tomorrow, Happy Birthday Kendra!). I saw them last time they came for their second album in a much more intimate venue, and this time they had three opening bands, fire balls, confetti, and an endless sea of fifteen year olds in neon leggings and 80s t-shirts. We felt kinda' old :)

Oh yes, and aren't these pants just amazing? I always have outlandish taste in pants (seriously, you should see my purple jeweled ones), and these are no exception. They have been sitting at work for months being made fun of by every passer by and I just couldn't deny my love for them. I had to get them before someone bought them for a Halloween costume then forgot about them in the back of their closet. They are actually really great quality. By Jantzen in the 1960s, made of soft wool woven with metallic threads. There is even a velvet elastic waistband, I never even knew there was such a thing as velvet elastic :) I call them my "Fondu Party Pants" because I can just picture a woman in the 60s having all her friends over for a fondu party and wearing these.

Your pants are really amazing! I love how quirky they are! I often think I get to score nice/weird items when thrifting because nobody else would buy them :P

Those pants are divine! I could never pull those puppies off!!! I did buy a folky looking skirt at the thrift store that I am waiting to wear till it gets cold. Also i have yet to find the perfect belt for it.

I'd love to see them live! But they don't come often in France... Your outfit is lovely. I like how it's simple and original at the same time. Perfect for a concert I guess ;)
