Then I got a blue ink stain on the thigh and a bog black glob of shoe goo right above the knee. But can't just get rid of these pants. I mean I paid full price for them! And I got them altered. They're good pants!
They've been sitting in my alterations pile for, I don't know, a year? Today was the day they were going to get altered. So I put them on.
I'm not even going to apologize for not wearing make-up. Yes I am. I am so sorry, internet, but desperate times call for desperate measures and this is a sad, sad, desperate mess.
I'm still trying to figure out what to do about the ink stain, but the solution for the goo stain was to simply crop the pants.
That's when I realized I didn't have a plan. Burmuda shorts? Shorts? Cuffed or scalloped? Side vent? Lace inlay?
I have no idea!
