This outfit isn’t super exciting, but they can’t all be winners! Everything fits, my butt is covered, what more do you want? (Don’t answer that.)
Speaking of butt-coverings, I bought some new pants over the weekend! FINALLY! Please wait, the confetti will drop momentarily.
I’d heard a few times that J.Crew carries well-made leg-sleeve-type garments, and indeed, I came away with two pairs of work pants and one pair of jeans that fit better than most other pairs I’ve ever owned.
I was sort of hoping that I’d be able to eBay a few more pairs now that I know my J.Crew size, but as with most ready-to-wear clothing brands it wasn’t meant to be. The three pairs of pants that fit best–ankle-length, cropped, and tapered linen–were a size 6, a size 8, and a size 10, respectively, and I bet I could have found a suitable size 12 as well. (The jeans were sized in inches, which was a whole new adventure.)
Soooo, as I should have expected, I really have no better sense of whether a given pair of J.Crew pants online will fit me properly or not. Which is a shame, since the colors the store had available were pretty basic and I haven’t hit my upper limit on hot pink trousers yet.
