I Don't Have Enough Gypsy Pants

I have plenty of pants.  And they're all my favorite, which is the ultimate goal in having a Tiny Closet.  
And though I don't have a passion for owning a lot of things (including clothing), I definitely have a passion for 

big, drapy, voluminous pants.

And when you have a passion for a certain article of clothing, you tend to have way more in your wardrobe than you need.
Because it's not about necessity, it's about adoring big pants and wanting big pants all the time!  

Much like collecting art.  I guess.  Right?  I stand by my excuse.

Anyway...  These cage-like sandals that I bought off eBay have really found they're way all over my versatile ensembles.
I'm so happy for the mild Winters in L.A. that keep me cute cocktail shoes :)

I've worn them with: jeans, a mini and also a jumper.

This chiffon top has also gotten a lot of action.  Over the last several months.  One unlikely pairing I did over the Fall last year was wear it with tiny shorts.
And then, more likely, a pair of tattered jeans.

I made these crazy pants using fabric I picked up in the Garment District.  Zany prints like this one always pull me in since they're displayed on the sidewalk outside the stores and they're priced super low.  I shamelessly plan to make many more of these gypsy gems throughout the year!

Happy Monday, y'all


  1. Cute! I like the photos with the painted hands..where is that?

  4. Natalie, I have not seen an outfit that I want to copy on your blog more than this one.
    You look beautiful, stunning, sexy, fashionably chic, everything I can think of, I see here.

    Great job!


  5. Girl, GIMME THOSE PANTS! Amazeballs.com. Natalie, when are you going to start selling stuff?

  6. those pants are amazing... did you draft your own pattern or do you have a printed one you like??? I have about 7 pairs of gypsy pants planned... would love advice :)

    1. Thanks Maggie! I did draft my own pattern, but I'd suggest if you want consistency and minimal drafting, go to "A Pair & A Spare" (diy blog) and check out the tutorial on palazzo pants : http://apairandasparediy.com/2012/07/diy-printed-palazzo-pants.html - I LOVE her diy, it's so inspiring. Palazzo pants are very similar to gypsy and all you have to do is put elastic on the bottom of the legs, voila! Have fun!
