pants problems

I love these pants. 
Dead stock vintage high-waist flares. I had been looking for the perfect ones for-EVER but because I had to try them on (just how i am with pants!) my choices were limited. I finally came across a great pair at one of my favorite vintage stores in Portland, OR called LuLu's Vintage. During the year of slow fashion (keep portland weird) I wore them for the blog once fresh off the rack while I was still actually on my visit to Portland. Well then I washed them and now they are all 'stone washed' with lines and !@#$ everywhere. My mom says this is a normal thing and I shouldn't be worried but it makes me sad/angry. I just wanted them to stay pristine and perfect. If I wouldn't have spilled Voodoo donuts on them I probably wouldn't have washed them and gotten a few fresh uses of them but of course, I did. SO I washed them. I am debating re-dyeing them but am also just growing accustomed to the vintage look of them.

Currently obsessed with this vintage fascinator! It came into my work and my colleagues were YUP Rachel will want this. And boy were they right :D I have another that is black that just looks killer with the purple hair. But I am kind of loving the brown combo. It picks up some of the golden brown that still in my hair. In fact I am so obsessed with fascinators right now I keep Hearting them on ETSY!

This bag holds the perfect amount of stuff! My phone, keys (complete with mini Rubik cube {yes I am a dork} and moo card holder), Wolverine wallet, lip-gloss and LUSH solid perfume fit perfectly! I even have space to throw in a small paperback and my sunglasses for a day of errands.

The more I think about it the more I will am leaning toward keeping them all funky washed, maybe if I was them more it will look less like a mistake and more like it was meant to be! But who knows maybe I will go crazy, get some denim dye and do em up again. What do you think I should do?
