On our recent trip to Round Top, Texas, my sister, Emily purchased a pair of pants. She was certain that they were a perfect fit for her mom lifestyle and even though they were a bit expensive ($150) she would wear them so often that it wouldn't seem a sacrifice. When she returned home, away from the antiques and eccentricities of Round Top, regret set in.
What is a girl to do? Unable to return the pants - she put them on ebay and did better then expected. She sold them for $335.
I love ebay! and I am also so glad that this pair of pants isn't sitting in her closet when there is someone else out there who really wants them. They are really cute - but maybe more of a flair piece then a staple.
The pants are from a company called Magnolia Pearl.
You can see from the photo how darling the salesgirls are in the baggy linen and lace bloomers. I really love their style and have had the owner's home in my inspiration book for a couple of years. I think it is a tribute to the company that their clothing has such a following and that people will pay so much for their things on ebay. Everyone's a winner.
