During a recent visit to the Haight Street Fluevog store, members of the MotleyFlue had the pleasure of running into the lovely Amber Clisura, the woman behind No Pants 2011. Kudos to Madam Shirley for spotting Miss No Pants!

The MotleyFlue (sans Gladys) were visiting the store to meet up with fellow Flueddicts Marisol and Stacey, and take a sneak peek at the current sale. As we were admiring Agent Dorothy prance around in a pair of black Splendids, Madam Shirley turned to me, and whispered, “Hey! Isn’t that….” I looked over and answered, “Yes! It’s the No Pants girl!” Shirley then scrolled through her phone to find the No Pants website. After a few short whispers, we decided that we just had to say hello and take a photo. Miss No Pants is as lovely and cool as I had expected her to be. She sports Fluevogs, so no surprises there:)

I have Miss Gladys to thank for introducing me to No Pants. In 2010, I started my Flueddiction. Admittedly, I didn’t wear them out much because I just didn’t know what to wear with them (other than jeans and a t-shirt). Looking at Amber’s blog gave me some great ideas – especially with respect to letting go of pants, the ways tights and socks can really change a wardrobe, and not being afraid of using accessories, color, and texture. In 2011, I followed her blog religiously and I can’t wait to see what she has in store next!

Thank you, Amber No Pants! Running into you totally made my day:)
