So I Asked the Horse

Why such a long face? A little fact about me. That is my favorite  joke. I laughed so hard the first time I heard it and I still chuckle over it to this day. Get it? Horse? Long face? Anyway, the horse most certainly was not sad about these pants and neither am I.

I found these lovlies at Unique Thrift and unique they are! These pants are why I enjoy thrift shopping so much. Once I galloped (haaa!) home with my purchase, I tried them on right away and was super excited to discover an extremely high waist and a partial elastic waistband too. Yee. Haw.

I love kitschy animals in fashion. I've stayed in the acceptable zone of leopard print and went next level with wolf jewelry. I'm now out of orbit with cowboy on a horse pants and I'm okay with that.

Because I like to reassure myself that I'm not the only kooky one out there, I sought out horse pants of recent. Turns out ASOS and Paul & Joe like horses too so I know there's a couple other people out there in similar trousers. It's not the animal lover in me that makes me want to rock them, It's definitely the randomness. How does the artist know horse print fabric is exactly what the design needs?

What about you? Are you a yay or a neigh (last one) on horse print pants?

Linking up with the lovely ladies of Monday MingleThrifters Anonymous, and What I Wore Wednesday.

Have you seen the tiny little face pictured in my right sidebar? Violet's BFF is still missing. She was abducted by her mother in March of this year. She is the daughter of a very good friend. He's one of Violet's favorite uncles. They are our family. I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at it and share the link to her missing kid's poster. We love and miss her and would really love to have her home before the year ends. Thank you.

What a fun print on those pants! They look like floral from afar but I like them even better that they're horses!
