{outfit} Say Goodbye, Burgundy Leather Pants

This is my 4th Thanksgiving outfit with these leather pants. What can I say? If something works, stick with it! Unfortunately, they met an untimely end during our second Thanksgiving festivities. Somehow they must have gotten caught on something sharp and they RIPPED. Right on my butt. Awkward. It started as a medium sized rip that my cousin noticed when I took of a vest I had thrown on before we headed out. So I had to un-tuck my blouse to cover it up. By the end of the evening the rip was HUGE. They didn't even rip on a seam which was so odd.

My mom is currently looking for a pattern to try and make a purse with the fabric because it's really beautiful leather and I'd hate to waste it. So we'll see what they become in their second life! I guess I can hunt for a new pair of burgundy leather trousers.

  1. What a shame - these are one of the best looking pair of leather trousers I have seen.

  2. Oh no! That is so sad and seems so strange for leather to just rip, I can't even imagine what would have been sharp enough to do the damage. I hope you and your mom are successful at re-purposing them!

  3. Oh no - that really stinks as those pants are seriously glorious!
