It’s been three days since I’ve worn disco pants and I am missing them! Got a strong start to the month with five out of the first six days seeing me in disco pants. But then a three day lull. And now it’s supposed to get colder—the kind of cold that I don’t wear disco pants in! But I will see if I can do it anyway.
I began the month with my 100th wearing of the year by wearing my cranberry red AA disco pants. Following that I wore the altered midnight navy size medium, altered black medium, a vintage English-made pair in royal blue and the altered charcoal in medium. On the weekend there wasn’t much action. Beginning of the new week also featured a doctor’s appointment so nothing there either.
The most notable thing to happen lately was the wearing of the royal blue, vintage, English-made pair. I’ve had this one for about two years and it has a very comfortable, stretchy waist. The color is bright blue with stitching on the back pockets that reminds one of the stitching on Levi’s jeans. Also reminiscent of Levi’s jeans is the little white tab on the side of the right pocket. I really like those touches as they give the pants more and more of a denim jeans look.
I had never worn this pair before. I love how skintight it fits without choking my waist. But it is a tad short on me so it looks best with my new Dr. Martens Zaniel boots. Even my high top Converse couldn’t make up for its shorter-than-needed inseam for me. The reasons I’ve never worn this pair before was the shortness and the fact that it’s such a bright, royal blue. I have worn royal blue disco pants in public before but it was back in my initial days at church and never again since. Even though the color is so bright it does resemble the blue of a pair of jeans. So I went with it. That was on Thursday. It’s a new color for me even though as mentioned I have worn the color once before. What remains to be seen is if I will keep this color (and this pair) in my rotation. I have three other pairs in this color including two Le’Gambi and one AA. The AA is unaltered so I cannot wear them for now. One Le’Gambi is vintage and absolutely one of the tightest pairs in my collection. I think it’s a vintage size two. I remember the time I wore them to church they were killing my waist and I couldn’t wait to get home and take them off. The second Le’Gambi is a brand new pair in size five that fits a little loose.
So I may keep wearing the Lazy B regularly or not. I might just focus on continuing to wear the colors I like best. Not that I don’t really like royal blue. For me it’s more important to wear disco pants as often as possible and less important to try to wear each one I have. There may be occasions for some of the wilder colors in the future. But the more neutral colors—the more inconspicuous ones—give me plenty of pleasure to wear right now.
That’s about it for now. Have to start a new post since I have some interesting new things to discuss. Love live disco pants!
