Yes - I bought Disco Pants! These American Apparel Disco Pants have become a bit of an internet sensation. I've wanted a pair of these for so long but just could not justify the price tag. But I realised I still really wanted them months later and after receiving a bit of money for having my work featured in a magazine I decided to treat myself!
I actually bought these online on the American Apparel US website and had them shipped to my sister who lives in Washington DC. Thus saving me a good £20. She came home for a visit and brought them with her. Thanks Megs! So no nasty shipping charges just the cheaper price tag! Obviously not everyone can do this but if you have any friends or family in the States I'd suggest asking them nicely to bring/send you a pair to save money. You can also get these on ASOS and use you're student discount to save a few pounds.
Size wise I got them in a Small. I tried on the Medium and the Small in the UK stores and I both fitted nicely although the Medium was a touch to big on the waist. I've also heard it's best to buy a size down. I'm a average UK10 if this helps anyone - and occasionally I have to buy my trousers/jeans in a 12 to compensate for my big bum! But the Disco Pants in a Small fit really well.
They are so comfortable too. It's hard work pulling them on as they are tight and designed to hold you in - but once they are fastened they feel lovely and stretchy. I also wouldn't usually include a photo of my bum on my blog but I wanted to show the pockets and how they 'sit' for those who have only ever seen front shots.
I really like the way they look - its so hard to photograph these, so the images aren't the best.
I've read so many comments from girls on blogs about how they don't think they can pull these off or how they would never look good in a pair. My advice is to just go to American Apparel and try some on! Your'e under no obligation to buy them and take a few snaps in the mirror to look back on when you get home. I walked in to the fitting rooms with these thinking I would hate them and look hideous but I ended up falling in love. Probably not a good idea to try them on if you're wanting to save money...chances are you will fall in love too!
I wanted the classic black so I could wear them with anything. I'm a little unsure how to style them for day time wear but I'd say this look comes pretty close. For a night out I'd pair them with chunky heels, a loose cropped tshirt and plenty of jewellery. I'm keen to learn more ways to style them so any suggestions are appreciated! How do you wear yours?
They are an investment buy and probably the most expensive fashion item I own. It's too soon to say how much wear I will get out of them but hopefully a lot! I understand these are a dream item for lots of you and a big decision when it comes to parting with your cash (it was for me anyway) so if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them!
