WWD: Plastica

I busted out the old pleatha pants yesterday, and I have to say, this just became one of my favorite ensembles.
Love the black on black with the fitted, tailed ivory tux jacket.
I even think my el cheapo shoes look pretty good.
The only weird thing, I mean besides that rash that won't go away (KIDDING - I'm KIDDING), is the way the pleather feels against my tummy tuck scar. It feels very plasticy or rubbery or something. Is it me or the pants? Bizarro.
Huh, strange for pleather, as it is usually so high-end and feels DELICIOUS against your skin. Ahem.
Wanna know something else weird about me? Besides the fact that I once may have had a crush on Buck Owens and Glen Campbell? **true story** - I  blame my parents for that, for the fact that as a child I was subjected to more Hee Haw than any human being should be.
I have a bit of an obsession with black tennis shoes. I KNOW, CRAZY. Seriously though. I am in dire need of a new pair of cross trainers, and I cannot stand to wear anything but black, but have you ever tried to find cool black trainers that are also comfortable and don't break the bank? Nearly impossible. You can find a bejillion pairs of black running shoes, but I don't want all the tread on the bottom, since most of what I do in the gym is either turbokick or boot camp (things that require a lot of pivot).
I've found a verrry FEW cute pairs, but I swear, black with hot pink must be the thing in trainers this year, because they all have that combo. I'm not totally averse to it, but they just don't GO with everything. Hey, it's not ONLY about function and comfort, it's also about fashion. Come ON, don't you know me by now?????
Typically I end up buying Nike, but would get something else this time if the price was right and I love them. If you have any cute, comfy, black trainers, gimme the scoop so I can check them out my damn self. I'd appursheeeeate it. Thanks. Ya'll come back now, ya heah?

I have a pair of Nike Frees too in charcoal grey - I'm pretty sure they have 'em in black. I would hope. I'm going to throw another random fact out about moi - because that's what I do with you ;o) - I had a pair of Hee Haw overalls (or "hogwashers" as my grandfather called them), I even had my picture professionally taken in them - at my Mom's insistance - I remember hating them - but dayum I loved the show, just remember it was a corny version of "Laugh In"! Get it - corny? Ha ha!
