We need the eggs

I love Annie Hall. The first time I watched it I was amazed at the honesty of the relationship that was portrayed, I laughed hysterically and I was in awe of Diane Keaton's style. To this day I dream of her outfits in that movie... So when I found these pants in H&M I was elated and immediately christened them my Annie Hall pants. I was going to go for the whole ensemble (vest, scarf and hat) but opted against it for fear of looking like a costume. I know most men would be horribly put off by their high-waisted bagginess, but, in the words of Annie, la-di-da.

"After that it got pretty late, and we both had to go, but it was great seeing Annie again. I... I realized what a terrific person she was, and... and how much fun it was just knowing her; and I... I, I thought of that old joke, y'know, the, this... this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, uh, my brother's crazy; he thinks he's a chicken." And, uh, the doctor says, "Well, why don't you turn him in?" The guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." Well, I guess that's pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y'know, they're totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and... but, uh, I guess we keep goin' through it because, uh, most of us... need the eggs".

    And the pants look great- I like how you kept it simple, it really makes it chic. And so what if some men (and women even) scoff. Do you know what happens when women dress exclusively for men? The Pussycat Dolls.
