keep your pants on

I guess you could say that I'm easily distracted. Last night, I was quite convinced that I would give the ole' plastic a workout by getting myself a cute little velvet blazer. This morning though, I went to work in a pair of wide legged trousers that I've owned for at least 4 years now and thought, "Why don't I own more of these?" Now that temperatures are cooling down in NY, trousers are really good for work. Plus several people have said that I look taller when I wear pants for some reason. Good enough reason for me. So after work, I walked over to Express and got myself a couple of pairs:

I really did mean it when I said a couple. I only got the Editor Pants in black and in denim. I really wanted the boucle pair in the center too, but the deal was you get 50% off the second pair of Editor Pants so I stuck to two pairs. I like buying trousers from Express because they make short sizes and the 00 short is perfect on me, no hemming needed! Tis an extraordinary thing for a not-so-tall chick like me to be able to wear pants straight off the rack (thus my preference for skirts). I also finally gave in and got the Express store card today to get an extra 15% off. So I ended up paying $84.36 instead of $129! I feel a little guilty for spending again, but knowing I will get lots of wear from these babies quiet my conscience a little bit ...

It sounds like your purchase was well worth it. You're right, you will wear them all the time and they are completely timeless. I feel your pain about never finding pants that are the right length. I'm short too and it makes finding the perfect pair of pants such a pain in the butt. Love your picks!

nice! Express has always been my go-to store for work pants! They're pretty well made, easy to care for, and fit great (especially when they have the pants deals) - even for short people like me! Yay!!!

Christen and pixelant - thanks for easing my guilt a little ;-) Nothing beats Express for work-appropriate clothes that fits us tiny ones!
