I got some leather pants for free. I got them right out of my mother's closet. Believe it or not, she purchased these leather pants when she was about 28 years old. She tells the story of how she purchased them every time she sees me wearing them. Momma was strolling through the mall one day and saw the leather pants displayed in a window. She initially thought they were too expensive to purchase. She went back again another day to find the pants still sitting pretty on display, waiting to go home with her. So she swooped them up and kept on kicking. Little did Momma know, those pants would be passed down to a daughter she didn't even have at the time: a daughter who would cherish those pants and rock the hell out of them too.
When you shop for quality threads you get your money's worth, and you'll have what you've purchased for years to come. I can't wait to pass these pants on to my unborn daughter and tell her the story of how her grandmother purchased these pants and rocked the hell out of them - as did her mother.
P.S. - Make sure you serve someone this weekend in honor of Dr. King. You don't have to participate in some big MLK program or volunteer with a notorious non-profit organization. All you have to do is perform an act of kindness in his honor. Happy King Holiday!
