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.

    So many fun things in this post ~ the outfit was nice, but the commentary was the best!
    Good luck on upping your closet total of hot pink anything ~ that is an awesome color. I currently have some pretty bright fuchsia Nikes which don’t match a thing I own, but still garner lots of compliments. I think people might be getting used to my eccentricities 😀

  2. Mia, finding pants that fit calls for more than a confetti drop. A parade! A holiday! A day of silent reflection on the vast variety of body shapes!

    I tried on pants today. No fun, no success, no confetti. Gosh darn pants.
