A-Wang Wannabe

When I came across these pants on sale at Urban Outfitters I became very excited… You know how I feel about sweatpants disguised as something fashionable, and they totally reminded me of the Alexander Wang paper bag trousers I’ve wanted for months. When my friend Christina asked if they were, in fact, A.Wang, I realized I wasn’t the only one spotting the resemblance. There is a difference between a knockoff and a designer-inspired item, right? If not I’d have to throw out all my Jeffrey Campbells (GOD FORBID!).

Note: If I could dress in head-to-toe A.Wang all the time, oh Lord I would — but for now I’ll have to settle for a few wannabes.

*wearing: Urban Outfitters pants, T by Alexander Wang tank, Jeffrey Campbell clogs, jacket from Chinatown, vintage bracelets

Oh, and I’m dying to own a Diego bag. There’s no faking this badboy:

Giiiiiirl, you have no idea how in lust I am with that bag. I’ve always loved a good bucket bag – but this bucket bag is in its own realm. Also love the A-Wanna B look. If you don’t tell who would know? =)

I was just looking at the same pants but in black. Unfortunately they sold out my size. You are very brave wearing white…I just like to hide in black. They look great on you!

Hey girl!
we have the same heart tattoo except mine is on my wrist :)
I have to agree…these are very wang-ish. I have a similar pair from Aritizia that is super comf.
Oh! and invest in the diego! I have it in leopard and it’s the best bag I’ve ever owned! I’m contemplating buying it in just full leather…maybe cream!

I love it! The accessories are amazing. I remember you tweeted about the spider bracelet a while ago after you found it at a flea market. What a steal! Jealous! =]

If this is what you wear normally, I can only imagine you during NYFW! So pumped!
