I wore these pants a few months ago, and when I walked in front of the mirror late in the afternoon, I realized the zipper was down. That was horrifying enough, but then I discovered that it wasn’t so much that the zipper was down as that the zipper was completely broken (I paid an entire $10 for these pants at Forever 21 – obviously I am completely shocked that they aren’t investment jeans).
Fortunately they are very stretchy pants and after letting them sit in my drawer unworn for many months, I thought, “Why not just sew the fly shut and wear them anyway?” And so I did. I just try not to go to the bathroom very frequently on the days I wear them because, although they are stretchy, it’s still a little tight to pull them on and off when the only opening is a single button.
And then this shirt was a hand-me-down from Ralphie. I loved it, but the front gaped a lot between buttons. So I sewed the front shut too.
Basically, this outfit is just sewn on to me.
