What I Wore: Getting Freaky With My Fupa

Leandra Medine | June 27, 2011
This is just an outfit post.
blouse: Alternative Apparel, jeans: Bel-Air, bag: Alexander Wang, shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
You may recognize these pants. It’s not because your mother wore them in 1981, or even because  you’re a professional parachuter and recall using an uncannily similar silhouette last time you jumped out of a plane. No. You recognize these simply because…
 They are the original fupa pants. I’ve also blogged about them before.
And in that post, I shared a really sweet anecdote that chronicled a series of Parisian events that started while I was wearing the parachutes in question, and ended when warm weather subsided and I could no longer wear such thin light wash denim. In this event, my relationship status went from void to Lloyd. Provided his name was Lloyd, which it wasn’t. It only lasted a moment, however, cue some large shoulder pads. But that’s a story for another time. In fact, all the aforementioned seems like a story for another time. Ultimately, I just wanted to keep you informed, let you know I pulled these pants back out last week and in an instant become one with my old self again.
That is to say, a pastel fish. I should also note, however, that they are excellent pants to wear should you find yourself amongst a large group of rowdy men with weeners for brains. Repellent indeed.
That’s all I got. Except to tell you I can’t stop making fake eyeglasses with my fingers because to me they look exactly like Prada’s baroque ones.
See? No? Weird, look again. 
Mine are just a tad bit cooler because a. I DIYed them and b. they feature arm parties!

    I don't even care if they resemble a fupa or parachute … with the shoes they look repeltastic (I wear my menswear jeans on the reg and le man in my life turns his nose up at me every time … gotta love it)

    I'm loving the new Prada sunnies, though they're not quite as awesome as your DIY version. Lovin' the Alexander Wang bag and Alternative Apparel tee. =)

    Is it wrong that before I started reading the post I thought, "man I really need those jeans"? I guess I'm a repeller at heart 🙂

    Your blog is absolutely brilliant. The writing is hilarious and the oufits perfection. There is nothing I enjoy more than a good bit of man repelling (faves include peter pan collars and high-waisted culottes) and no one does it quite like you! Love Ella. x

    No matter how man repelling you still look mind-blowing in those jeans. And I total would sport your DIY shades anytime (more fun than the Prada ones, of course!)

    now that gay marriage has passed in NY it is obvious you have gone on and started women repelling in these pants BRAVO!

    always a fan, Shaynah at layeredblack.com

    I love this look because it's very Free People with high-fashion pieces. You look divine in that shade of green and it goes so well with your hair (an ombre color many people fail to pull off; however, you do it wonderfully). I wish I could rock pants like that, because they are amazing. I adore your Giuseppe Zanotti's with this look!
