Fun Wide-Legged Pants for Plus Sizes!

in full swingI met Sharon Silverstein, owner of In Full Swing, in 1989, while I was shopping. She was a delight, and we became friends. Here we are 25 years later and I am still shopping with her, now in Oakland, CA.

When I saw these pants, I just had to have them. If you have been following along, you know I love both words and graffiti and these pants have a little of both. They only came to a size 3X, but they are 92% polyester and 8% spandex, so they have lots of stretch, and I would be comfortable suggesting them to anyone who wears a 4X or Size 26/28. And you know these wide legged pants are all the rage this summer.

crop for beltI love a little DIY (do it yourself project). A friend gave me two belts like the one I have on in the photo, size 4X stretch belts, but both with gold snaps. I decided I HAD to have silver, so I silver-leafed them. What was I thinking? The first time I wore the belt, and leaned against a table, the silver leaf started peeling. Using the wrong materials will get you every time. I should have used a silver Sharpie. LOL
