With fashion month arriving sooner than we'd all like it to, I'm starting to stock up on some new pieces that I hope to wear during New York Fashion Week. One of my latest purchases is a pair of workwear pants from & Other Stories, which was actually inspired by a similar pair that I saw during last fashion week. 

I remember it clearly: I was at the Eckhaus Latta show in Bushwick, and I couldn't stop talking about the pants that another showgoer was wearing. Whitney, who was with me and unfortunately held hostage by my rambling, encouraged me to just ask the woman where her pants were from. But that would require me to stand up from my chair and walk across the venue and over to her, and I was in no mood to force any extra physical or social exertion than what was needed at that time. I just traveled all the way to Bushwick!

Anyway, the memory of these pants has been engrained in my mind ever since. When I spotted a similar style in an & Other Stories newsletter — the only newsletter I have yet to unsubscribe from — I immediately went to the brand's flagship store near the Fashionista HQ to try on a pair. They were perfect. I loved the placement of the contrast stitching, the dark wash and the extra-folded cuffs. I'm excited to wear them very soon, but will have to make sure to restrain myself from wearing them during the entirety of fashion week.
