I wore my disco pant cutoffs today for the third time. They are really so great for this warm weather, and even though today wasn’t all the warm here–there was a cooling wind even–they still felt very good and refreshing. Seriously, I want to wear them every time I go out.
Today I took someone to the DMV but I didn’t wear my shorts there. I don’t like wearing anything too attention-inducing to places like that because there are lots of people there with bored eyes who never fail to check you and everyone else out from head to toe. I don’t fully get this human tendency. I don’t check people out when they come into a room. I don’t understand the fascination. Is what people are wearing so interesting? I can only imagine what’s going in these watchers’ minds. Why not just bring a book or magazine to read? You know you’re going to be there for a while with nothing to do. Why waste time people browsing? Anyway, I didn’t wear them there. I don’t like going to these places in the first place so I try not to let my clothing do the talking. So places such as the DMV, unemployment office, SS, etc. are not places I would ever wear disco pants or shorts to. Not even my most favorite skinny jeans would join me there.
But as soon as I got home I had other errands to run and so I changed into my shiny, tight shorts and picked up some Popeye’s and some pet food. At the dollar store where I bought the pet food I had to check in my messenger bag which I didn’t like doing. I removed my phone from it first and stuck it in the other back pocket of my disco cutoff shorts. I hadn’t realized until I passed in front of a mirror that when I put the phone in my pocket my already-somewhat-shortish button shirt got caught behind the phone and resulted in almost the whole right side of the back of my shorts being visible. Looked good but I quickly pulled the shirt out from behind the phone and let it down. I don’t think anyone saw but who cares if they did. I’d like to wear them with most of the shorts showing but that’s just one of those things I’m not quite ready to do.
I received my swim jammers order today and while they are nowhere near as shiny as my disco cutoff shorts, they are very tight and solidly made. They look like they will last a long time. If I ever go anywhere there’s a pool or even to a lake or elsewhere I’ll be sure to wear them. I tried the blue one and while it is not as shiny as the photo showed it does feel good on and looks nice. I have yet to try on the black one.
I wish the order of Chinese disco pants would arrive already. I’ve got to see how these colors look in person and decide which would make good everyday wear in terms of shorts. Of interest is that the seller on Aliexpress that I placed my order through is now stating that this item is out of stock. But no need to fret! There are many other sellers offering these pants still. Just make sure you know what you’re getting because clearly some of the photos they use are American Apparel’s disco pants. Just verify that the pants have a button, zipper and back pockets. I’ll be placing some more orders soon myself!
