I was going to write about these a few weeks ago, but like most of my posts, I kept putting it off and putting it off and writing posts about world peace.
So I put it off and put it off, until today I was flipping through my open tabs trying to find something to post on. When I saw it, I was delighted. But, it seems, in the intervening weeks between finding these pants and posting about them, something unexpected happened.
These sold out.
As in, they are no longer available because too many people have bought them. Too many people have bought $650 sequined harem pants.
I have to ask: who buys these? Because I try to keep an eye out for things like this on the street, and never once have I seen anything even remotely resembling these in real life. So, seriously, who – other than lifestyle bloggers that have magical powers to wear things like this – can make an outfit out of these?
I guess the one upside is that they’re not as baggy through the crotch as some harem pants are, but that’s not exactly a big selling point. Although, I guess they’re good for holidays – festive enough to wear to Thanksgiving dinner, but drawstring-y enough to allow for the food baby that one gets after eating too much sweet potato pie.
Okay, I’m starting to see the appeal. But at $650 … I think I’ll just bedazzle some $20 sweatpants and call it a day.
