I have no idea when I bought these pants and just a vague idea of how much they were. I know it was before I got married. It may even have been when I was in college. All I know is that they've been sitting at the bottom of a box for the past 3+ years. And they fit! How fun. I love corduroy. And I should wear these pants more.
The fun textures! Dobby dots, cable knit, and corduroy. What's more fun than those? Wish I had some more color in a texture, though I liked that no two items were the same color.
I should have ironed these. But even though I thought about it earlier, I didn't. It was actually more wrinkled before I went to work.
Little trick I hacked this morning--spray some water on the wrinkled area with a spray bottle, and use your hair dryer to dry the area while you pull it taut. I recommend a spray bottle because you don't want it sopping wet (it will take too long to dry) but you don't want it to be too clumpy/spotty, either. I use water when ironing when I don't feel like starching, too.
Have you ever had a major find at the back of your closet or bottom of your dresser?
