078 : Outfit Post : Sequined Hot Pants

Many moons ago, I bougt an awesome pair of hot pants and I have since styled them a couple different ways. I've worn the hot pants with tights, at that's about it. But recently, I took part in a group bike ride with a hot pants theme, and so I wore them just like shorts for a night of riding. (I also brought along Body Glide to avoid chafing.)

What I noticed on that night of riding and bar hopping is that the hot pants fit even better now. With the marathon training, I've lost a little weight...not so much as to drop tons of dress sizes or anything, but enough to slim down some parts, and all the running has toned my ass and thighs. (If you look at the hot pants posts, you can see a progression of weight loss, to now, actually.) So, while running around on the bike and hanging out at the bars, I noticed that the hot pants don't fit tight to my thighs anymore. They're just loose enough to hang well, like shorts. So, I decided to wear them again, out in public, to see how I felt. Again, I brought Body Glide, because chafing. But I actually enjoyed the look and enjoyed wearing such fancy pants out and about.

I did receive a compliment from a lady who passed me on the street...and then later, I heard some nasty comments from a family at KFC, and they continued to Mean Girl Stare at me, so I moved to a different booth. Oh well, haters be hatin' and I can't blame 'em, what with being a self-proclaimed hater!

    1. Awesome!! I nearly put these in the Goodwill pile last week, but then I realized I need to wear them a few more times!
