Never did I think that silk electric blue pants would have a place in my wardrobe, but when I saw these suckers there wasn’t a moment’s hesitation to click and buy. This was at least two years ago and still, these pants find themselves in frequent rotation.
At first I would only pair them with more neutral pieces — grey t-shirt, black sandals, white blazer, for example — because I figured that electric blue pants didn’t need anything else to give them any extra flavor. But, as the old saying goes, “more is more,” and recently I’ve gone equally as bold with my accessories and shirts.
You’re guaranteed to get some looks on the street, but really, who cares about that?

On Keeping the Goods
When I was packing up my closet, I was forced to make those major decisions on what to keep and what to get rid of. Many people use the “if you haven’t worn it in over a year, throw it out” motto, but that just doesn’t work for me. Just because I haven’t worn it in over a year doesn’t mean I won’t wear it again. This cape is the perfect example. The last time I wore this superhero piece was back in January 2011. Over a year indeed and yet it still sits toward the front of my closet waiting for the day that I’ll wear it again. This day was yesterday.
Most of my clothes are still stored away in boxes (my closet isn’t being built until next week), and I find it interesting that this cape was one of the last pieces I packed up, thus making it one of the more accessible articles in my apartment of cardboard. While it’s by no means an everyday piece – the whole shoulder bag thing just does not work with capes – it’s still one of my favorites and I have absolutely no intention of getting rid of it, even if I don’t wear it again for another year.
How do you go about deciding what to get rid of when you’re cleaning out your closet?
