Beachy, frat-tastic, and fabulous all rolled into one.

A Victoria's Secret email with the following picture paired with the headline "try our pants risk free!" just landed those folks in Ohio a sale... at least a trial sale. Aaaaand it's pay day. Hells yeah.

Shipping and returns are free on Victoria's Secret with the code "riskfree". I'm all over this. Nick seems to think I'm not "long-legged" enough to pull off the look... blasphemy. All it takes is a cute pair of wedge sandals or heels. (Although mine will most likely end up paired with ballet flats or cute flat sandals if I get them tailored.) Either way: it'll still happen.

And for those of you interested in the history of seersucker, check out the wikipedia article. My favorite part?
"Seersucker is still widely worn in the South between Easter weekend and Labor Day, where it is often accompanied by a bow tie. It is widely considered a fashion faux pas to wear seersucker at the wrong time of the year, although this rule is often ignored by the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at the University of Michigan[2]."Be sure to check out the reference, too.

9/21/08 Update: Still wearing these clear into the fall season!
