Ladylike Bondage?

So this weekend I was in D.C. for a day, and then Baltimore for a day. Since it was overall a pretty irritating weekend, the highlight was stopping in the Harbor's HUGE Urban Outfitters store. I got a blazer and a really cute top (more photos later, when I don't look like such a bum.)

While re-visiting my old stomping grounds was not what I expected (and not a pleasant surprise either; Cleveland, I will never speak ill of you again) it did conjure up some memories of high school. So then I get back home, get online, check notcouture- you know, the daily routine- and these pants caught my eye. Now, I don't know if I would have paid much more notice to them if I hadn't just been reminiscing about my high school art class days, but I really think these are hella tight. They are quite subtle and frankly quite wearable for being "bondage" pants.


Exhibit A: Wearing bondage the correct way.


Exhibit B: Wearing bondage the incorrect way (no I was never one of these people, but many of my friends were.)






All this talk of bondage, I had to put Trent in here somewhere. You know I can relate almost any post back to Nine Inch Nails. And if you ask me, he is looking particularly Snape-like in this photo =)

  7. I like the jeans from the front, but I think the back looks a little odd, not so keen.

  10. Hhaha I remember reading a little thing about the Rag&Bone bondage pants about how they were perfect for your fat days because you could just unzip and let loose!

  11. snap-like indeed, but I don't like that pants very much.

    They remind me of tight parachute pants or something.
