Happiness Means


So I can't help but chuckle when I think about how American Apparel, well-known purveyor of SEX, is now selling unisex grandpa pants. Hilarious as it is, grandpa pants are kinda cool so I'm not complaining. I also tried to be clever with this outfit by pairing a sexy see-through lace top and spectator heels with the utterly un-sexy grandpa pants. Ok, now I need to go settle in with a cup of tea and a blanket and attempt my best efforts at "studying" for "exams". Unfortunately, it will probably result in me watching movies on my laptop. Any suggestions?

This is quite possibly the cutest grandpa pants outfit to ever exist! :D I'm almost inspired to go get a pair of these to pair with my own lacy top! Almost! :D

i love grandpa pants, they're the best thing ever! i understand your studying pain, i got exams in two weeks and i procrastinate so much... library visit? it's the only thing that keeps away the distraction x

the pants are awesome! and I love the lace top!

well there are plenty of ways to keep yourself distracted one of which is to watch the John Hughes movie Some Kind of Wonderful I think that you would enjoy it if you have not watched it and you can find it on youtube! I would also recommend watch the 60's show "That Girl" but the person took it down from youtube unfortunately! Or maybe even a Louise Brooks movie or a documentary about her which is also on youtube!

hope it helps!

I love combining clothes together like that...sexy+grandpa haha i always think of it like clothing math or something. I also really love your shoes!

Robyn said...

Great pants!
Sort of? I can't decide if I love them or not~ haha
Regardless, they look great with those shoes and the lace.
(and how is your job going?)

I just watched Hannah and her Sisters yesterday. I think the styling in it would be right up your alley.

Those grandpa pants are awesome. Harold and Maude is the best movie in the universe.

I know peeps aren't too fond of labels and yadayadayada, but I think what I'm going to say is safe since your blog is called Hipster Musings.

You are the coolest hipster, ever.

P.S. Good luck with the studying, I know I'm not looking forward to it. Although I did get my Latin exam over with, which is the most unpleasant one I had out of the bunch.

I believe Peeping Tom in its entirety is on YouTube. A landmark film.

Rowedna said...

Well done with the Grandpa Pants xD I think they work because it balances out with the lace top (but that's stating the obvious)

I highly recommend "The Red Sorghum"
It's on youtube, with subtitles :)

It's really artful and wonderful
