All things Pants…that is the current fashion headline and I
am loving the options!  A reader asked me
on Monday where I purchase my slim
legs-ankle- length pants
.  First, I
want you to know that one of my wardrobe goals for the past six months has been
to upgrade my pants.
My old selections were too big, baggy, and frumpy and they
literally put a cramp in my style!  So,
with the goal in mind of a new more stylish me, I have tried on pants
everywhere I have been.  Some have
worked, some have not…some have worked in the budget, and some have not.   The operative phrase here is that I “tried
them on.”  I highly recommend a visit to
a variety of stores and try on a lot of pants…great way to work off
calories.  Fit is so important, but
differs from store to store and label to label. 
I really am glad I tried on skinny pants, because otherwise I would have
just assumed they are for skinny girls.  
 Not all skinny pants are the same in that great fashion universe. But, I
can wear some with success.  The same for
leggings.  I love the ankle length, but I
am trying not to do a capri… (Though, I guarantee I will be seen in my old
capris this summer).   I also purchased
the ones with a little stretch in them, but I read a lot of reviews to find out
which stretch pants hold their shape. 
This is a long winded answer to a simple question…where do
you buy your slim- leg- ankle- length pants? You can see today that I purchased
these MNG by Mango pants at JCP for about $22 last weekend.  I have new pants from Talbots, Coldwater Creek,
and Lane Bryant.  My Lane Bryant pants
are Genius Fit Ankle Jeans and they are an amazing fit.   
All three of these retailers run sales and
coupons.  I highly recommend signing up
for their emails, because often that is where I am informed of sales and specials.  Currently, Coldwater Creek has a great special on pants and they have an exciting spring line of prints and colors.
So, ladies where do you buy YOUR pants??
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
