It’s On the Waiting List 4

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.

    I bet there were only, like, 2 of them in stock…and Rihanna and Lindsay Lohan bought them or something.

    ^No…Ke$ha bought the last pair, following a bitter dispute with Lohan over who was glam-grunge enough to have these ‘pants’ grace their grazed knees.

    Oh please, you know Eric Daman bought at least one pair. They’re just the sort of pants our favorite pant-less socialite would wear!

    I can’t wait to have a “Who Wore It Best” post with Rihanna, Lohan, Kesha, and Serena. It’d be a battle royale of bad.
