Today I am wearing a pair of pants that makes everyone say, “Ooh, cute pants!” And they really are. They are the best-looking pair of pants I own. However, they aren’t quite the best-fitting.
When I tried them on at the store, they were undeniably cute, but about half a size too big. Not a full size! Not enough to actually deter me from buying them! Just a touch. I usually have the opposite frame of mind when buying clothes—maybe something is a tiny bit snug, so I play the “well, I’m going to lose 5 pounds” game as a reason to go ahead and buy it. This time, I convinced myself they were a feasible purchase by reasoning that most of my pants that fit in the morning always feel a little snug for about an hour after lunch. This way, they’ll fit even better in the afternoon! The pants that keep on giving.
Not so. Evidently I’d have to eat a much heartier lunch for this plan to work. As it is, everytime someone compliments them, I have to suppress the urge to grab hold of them from the inside on both sides and do a giant hoist.
I would never call myself a style maven, but I’m guessing that would be a big fashion don’t.
