Seriously?

Many of you know: I enjoy shopping. I like bargain hunting. I like picking through endless racks of clothes. I love the adrenaline rush of an awesome find. Since I started this new job I have realized that my closet is severely lacking in the “semi-professional” career wear section. I do own a great pair of black pants- I have an awesome pair of grey slacks, but they are about 12 inches to long..and I haven’t owned khakis since the GAP outlet had a sale in ’96. And so, my pant-seeking adventure began.

I started at Old Navy. Generic- yes I am aware. But they do have good staples once in a while. I hit up TJ MAXX, and then finished with the Supreme Nordstrom’s Rack. Let me tell you- I was EXTREMELY disappointed. This is what I found:


Ugly, right? Now don’t be fooled- they can look a tiny bit attractive on a model or on a mannequin. This does not apply to ANYONE else seeking pants. I could not find normal pants anywhere! Am I missing something? Is it suddenly in style to have ginormous hippo legs? What am I supposed to wear to work tomorrow? When is this going to be out of fashion so I can attempt shopping again? And what MAN came up with this? (cmon. you know it was a dude.)

I surrender. I guess its black pants tomorrow…again…

  2. I have been Pant shopping many a time, and I end up with the same problem. I am also really short so even the really good pants are either to long or big when they come in petite. I hope you have better luck soon!

  4. I totally agree!!! I cannot find pants anywhere!!! HOwever… I did find some nice work attire at New York & Co. – they are/were moving locations in SOuth Town so everything was half off! woot woot! I am not sure if they are still having the sale or not. Reguardless, they always have some sort of sale and their work clothes are awesome! Good luck!

  5. Micci-It’s Brianne. Sorry I missed your wedding. But I love your blog and saw the photos and you looked amazing. Congrats.Ok, this is an area I know a little something about, as I’ve been shopping for pants since early 1998.Two words: Banana Republic.A little pricy but worth the quality and the fit. Work clothes suck, but if you have to wear them, wear stuff that fits you well. Carry on.

  6. I totally understand your pain! I’ve been shopping at Banana, and my favorite thing about that is I’ll be wearing something I just got, and someone will say, “Oh did you see Sarah and Emily? They are both wearing the same thing.” Ughh! I HATE it!

  10. I got to thinking…Express has the best pants in a few different styles but generally they carry some classic styles that still look cute and edgy! On a different note, have you seriously not updated your blog in over a week? You’re killing me!So now about those cousins…

  11. I was thinking that you need to join the Manic Monday post! There is a blogger at http://morgenfiles.blogspot.com/ that posts a word each week and basically you associate stories/ideas/thoughts/memories and it’s actually pretty fun and brings up some silly, some serious posts. I don’t actually use the links and link back to anything but if you go to that blog it explains it and I totally want you to think about joining the fun.
