Yes, I said stirrup pants.



I had a pair of cream stirrup-pants when I was about nine. I hated them with a passion. The band under my foot drove me nuts and eventually, I managed to sneak them into the hand-me-down bag, where they no doubt haunted a younger relative for some time after that.

Now they're back I'm having second thoughts. I've definitely been influenced slightly by a girl I spotted in Dubland over the weekend who was wearing a black pair of the 'tights' version (Penney's, about €4 or €5) with white patent flats and a long slouchy vest. My camera battery died so I couldn't get a pic but it worked, and I think it might work for me, despite the fact that she was foreign, pin-thin with an inspirational haircut and an expensive tan.

These, however, I'm not so sure about. There's something very Lederhosen about them, ja?

Yeah I remember getting purple stirrup pants for my birthday one year, I think I was about 10 or 11 - I was delighted, I thought I looked fabulous in my new pants - but then my Mum told me I didn't have the legs for them and that we'd have to return them and get something else - way to crush a young girl's illusions. I don't think I'm over it yet so I wont be wearing them this time around either! ;)

I had a discussion about 'ski pants' with my friend. We concluded they are wrong.
