Instead of sticking to my usual uniform of black and white I mixed things up and threw on my new Express Ultimate Double Weave Columnist Ankle pants (that’s a mouth full).  I LOVED these pants until I wore them and attempted to take outfit pictures, there was something that was off about them.

Instead of tossing them into the Goodwill pile I laid them out next to my coveted Zara ankle pants. The lengths were just about the same, but when I laid them on top of each other the Express ankle pants were a little bit wider at the hem.  Whew, super easy fix! I took the pants to my seamstress and she took them in at the cuff. I seriously cannot stress the power of alterations and having a great seamstress.  These pants cost a cute coin full price but at $15 and another $10 for the alternations I still came out way below retail cost, not a bad deal.

I am also still rocking white post Labor Day, does anyone even follow that rule anymore?


  1. Love it! I'm not big on white after Labor Day – not because of the so called rule though. Because I just never feel like wearing it. Same with bright nail polishes…by time fall comes I'm over it for a bit.
