I think I need a weekend from my weekend. I wish work gave everyone an extra week of vacation for the purpose of staying home and doing absolutely nothing.
I worked on Saturday, because it’s our peak period, which means they need extra help. Today, I received a text to come in early, but I already had plans to do some retail therapy before that. Which leads me to the pants struggle.
Buying pants should be simple. See style of pants you like in color you like, buy pants. Alas, no. Hunting for pants is like searching for the golden freaking magic chicken for me.
After ripping part of the seams on the legs of two of my ponte pants recently, I decided to do some leisurely shopping today. The reason I’ve ripped the seams on the pants is that I am constantly pulling them up, because I didn’t notice when I bought them that they don’t have any belt loops!! Humongous problem, because the legs are just right, but the waist is way too big and I have to safety pin it.
I always have the same problem with pants – huge waist but the legs fit. Is there a magic secret for buying pants?? Here is all I can think while I shop for pants:
‘Ooh, these are perfect! How much are th….$169.00??? Oh shit, here comes the saleswoman to ask if you need help. Pretend you can afford them but aren’t interested.’
‘These fit great.’ *turns around* ‘Mom butt.’
‘Which size should I get? I’ll just try 3 different ones.’
‘Great, so I can possibly wear anywhere between 3 sizes depending on the brand.’
‘IT’S STUCK ON MY LEG!!! HELP. please why. it’s happening.’ *falls off sitty stool*
I finally found a pair at Old Navy, today. They are similar to this pair with a little more distressed look. I wore them all day and enjoyed the summery style so hopefully I still like them in the next few days.
But seriously, why is pants shopping so complicated? So far, Old Navy is my favorite because they have a few different styles for body types. Usually, I go for the Diva, but these were on sale in Rockstar.
Is it just me? Do you ever have pants struggles?
Hints/tips….any favorite brand?
