Army Pants!

Hi there. Do excuse my strange early morning face!

I went to my local op shop and found these...1967 deadstock woollen army pants. For $8. A few minutes on the sewing machine to taper the legs and take in the waist and they fit pretty well. Plus, they're nice and warm for riding my bike to work.

They have cool pleat detailing...

Action shot! You can sort of see my satchel - I should do a post on that too...

I have recently found a nice new lipstick too - MAC's Del Rio. It's a great matte natural "lip" colour and stays well put. Check it out.

See you soon!
