In a Tight Spot



(Cardigan and stretchable skinny pants from Marshalls, thrifted lace tank top, vintage purse and necklace, designer bracelet)

I hardly wear enough long pants or jeans, and in the occasions that I do, I typically opt for ones made of stretchy material. The reason is largely due to necessity rather than preference, since it is almost impossible to find pants that perfectly fit both my thighs and waist at the same time. If it fits just right around the waist, it's way too snug around the thighs. If it perfectly fits the thighs, it's always too big around the waist. In most cases, I would have to get my pants altered to tighten the waistline in order to have the pants hug just nice around the thighs. Simply put, stretchable pants are the easiest solution, although not always the easiest find, to this pant problem of mine.

Wooow this Black § White stylish combination with dark bra exposed subtly illustrates a certain art of "casual Refinement" (Mmmh with the peep-toe cleavage as the discreet "Fetish twist") !!!

i totally understand you about the pants thing i'm the same way and it always a hassal to get pants but stretchy skinny jeans sound like a good investment :D

Florence said...

i have the same problem with pants. either my thighs are too big or my waist is to thin. what a dilemma. i was so happy when they brought the stretch jeans to the stores. a good solution.
and your shoes are just great!
