Fashion History: Slaxtastic Edition

Your Move (Anthropologie) Maxi
Back from Sabbatical!

Sometimes I find AMAZING things in my thrifting adventures that require no refashioning, but I still want to brag about them.  :)

Take this sweet mini-haul I procured for $3:

Seriously. $3.

 

Those copper mugs will be housing moscow mules (my favorite cocktail of the moment) oh so very soon.

But..those pants!!!!

Not bad for $1, eh?

 

No alterations required!  I paired them with a black shell I’ve had for over a decade and my sweet leopard-print booties.

When I looked at the label of my new trousers, I was intrigued.

USA! USA! USA!

 

I found that told me a great story about Stephanie and Joe Koret, the Trikskirt, and Slim Hip Slax (are these yellow pants those very slacks…er…slax?).  Stephanie designed Koret’s clothing and within two years, they made 2 MILLION dollars.

Pretty impressive for the 1930’s.

While Joe and Stephanie have since passed away, the Koret brand is still around, known today as under the Kellwood Corporation.

I wore my new slacks…er…slax to lunch, where the waitress high-fived me when she found out I bought them for one lil dollar.  :)

Cheers!
