I Mean You (Alternate) - Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers


Despite my best attempts to never be sensible about style of dress, some of my friends are in fact extremely sensible. Laura Olin's Harem Pant Flow Chart makes total, utter and perfect sense. And yet, I refuse to stop stepping out of my house looking like MC Hammer. Sorry Olin, for all your sensible knowledge, some people just can't be saved!

I was sitting behind MC Hammer on a flight to San Jose a few years ago. He was wearing a lime green suit and a big gold medallion thing. I had no idea who he was until I walked off the plane behind him and someone yelled across the airport "YO! HAMMER! I STILL LOVE YOU MAN!"

But when I was 8, or so, my friend who lived 2 doors down from me (Rachel Kay, I think her name was) and I used to hang out on our street corner playing MC Hammer and trying to copy the dance moves in the video. I can't imagine what this looked like in the suburbs of Glasgow...

OK, this is hilarious. And I write this from an actual harem, as we speak.

I was sent a pair of harem pants to review. I suspect it was a combination of poor design/materials + my ass that rang the death knell for this particular item for me - drop-crotch alone can be tricky, but these were capri harem pants with knit horizontal stripes, a drawstring waist, white contrast stitching, and oversized back pockets. There is no "making it work" with that kind of combination, and frankly, seeing my boyfriend recoil as if he'd stumbled across a dead body was enough to kill the concept for me. :\
