So i did it, bought the suit shorts. Black from Banana with a giant cuffs. Lovin them! Your turn! Already got several compliments.
The gauntlet is thrown. I get it, J.* In fact, I was just pondering my first suit shorts purchase as a staple for NYC. I'll write more about that stressor later, but I'm thinking they would do well for stylishly trapsing the streets and avenues of Gotham.
As a recap, J & I discussed the possibility of the "business shorts" when they first appeared on the runway. We were both intrigued, particularly as a new office option. But the major concern was early pairs were super-skinny, and didn't seem to have much room in the rear, if you get my drift.
Apparently, J's found a solution; now it's my turn! (We won't discuss the fact that I haven't heard from J in weeks, and now she comes out fightin' - that's another thing entirely.)
A cursory shop at Nordstrom last night (Girls' Night Out - more on that later, too) yielded a few possibilities, but we'll see. I may have to wait 'til we arrive on the island to purchase.
J - are these the ones?
*For those of you who don't know The Real J, she's a lovely colleague whom I don't see anymore in the new position. She was just about the only one in the old office who had any real sense of style.
