AMERICAN APPAREL DISCO PANTS.


jacket: dotti
top: witchery
pants: american apparel
necklace: diva
shoes: i love billy (old)
nails: sportsgirl 'sunflower' and 'all that glitters'

A quick post before I run out to my mid-semester spanish exam. I've been living in my River Island high shine tube pants (you can see them here) and because I loved them so much I bought a pair of the coveted American Apparel disco pants. While the River Island dupes are fantastic (and a fraction of the price too!) there is nothing like the originals. Although, each to their own - I see myself wearing them equally. The AA disco pants are thicker, tighter (but mine have given nicely after two days of wearing them) and have that super high shine that they're known for. Before I bought them I um-ed and ah-ed for months and my biggest concern was that they would be 'too much' for everyday wear and that I'd never wear them. So untrue! While they do stand out, they're really easy to style and I can get away with wearing my daggiest slouch top with them and still look decent! 

My advice for sizing (I swapped between two sizes about ten times before I decided which I wanted and quized the poor sales assistant as she was wearing them) would be to get a size smaller than your usual size. I grabbed an XXS when I'm always a XS. The smaller size was alot firmer fitting and while the waistband is incredibly tight and hard to pull over my legs, once it's over my hips it fits perfectly around my waist and the zipper and button do up fine. I've also found that even though they're hard to pull on, once they're on I feel like I could do aerobics in them!

Adios.

  10. The pants are amazing. I have wanted a pair of the disco pants for so long but they are just so expensive. It's nice to hear they are worth it though, there's nothing worse than forking out that much for something that is poor quality!
