Anchors Aweigh!

I found these flowy gaucho pants (split skirt, cullottes, whatever you choose to call them) made by the German company Mondi at Value Village.  From the label and style it's most likely they're from the 80's.  I fell in love with the sailor-style placket and gold button closure, and the multiple pleats that make them swish every which way when I walk.  When paired with a striped shirt and a ceramic, metal and silk cord necklace from The Sentimentalist they created an outfit that made me feel rather nautical.
It's a skirt!  It's a pair of pants!

  1. Now I love a nautical look! I have never worn culottes (or whatever they're called), but you've made me think I should give them a go, they look great. Like you, I think the gold buttons are fabulous. xx

  4. Ahoy there! Wow! You look fabulous, I love those nautical pants and Mondi is a really good label, too. They must have cost a fortune when they were new. Worn to perfection, as always, my stylish friend! xxx

  7. Wow, I just found you through my culture serf blog and have just joined you. I love love these kind of elephant leg pants. I have a similar pair - but not so nice as yours! Someone on the street called them samurai pants. I know London very well too, so how cool that I can read about and see familiar places! Great site.
