Retrofit: About Those Gold Pants

Even if I'm not celebrating a milestone, I like to make a big deal of my birthday. This year, I did it by getting some gold cigarette pants. If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen them, but I'm showing them again because I can't get enough of these pants.






I have lusted after gold pants forever, so when my friend told me about a woman who would custom make them for a very reasonable price, it was kind of a no-brainer.




I love the shiny, sexy gold lame Frederick's of Hollywood pieces from the 1950s and 60s. Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to find them in my size and if I did, it'd cost me hundreds of dollars I simply do not have. But the look is fun. I love how Frederick's in that era was fun and toed the line of decency, much the way I do.

My mother would definitely not consider this decent

I think we can all use something a little bit,eh hem, cheeky in our lives, no? 


As the cherry on top, my picture made it to the La Vida Rockabilly Instagram page. Check them out!
