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?
