Grapetizer pants.

June 25, 2012

One thing I HATE doing because it’s just such a mission is jeans shopping. I find it so flipping frustrating, either my legs are too short (this is the case most of the time), orΒ  i’m an in between size, so they don’t fit me just right. Or they are tight over my knees and thighs, which irritates me and makes me feel like I have boiled cocktail sausages for legs. But when I do find jeans that I like, I normally just buy 2 pairs of the same kind, that way I’m sorted for a while – I pretty much live in jeans.

Lately I have been looking for a nice pair of skinny maroon/grapetizer (that’s what they remind me of) jeans and this weekend I finally found them. So if any of you are looking for skinny ankle bitters in nice colours, then look no further than Jay Jays (of all places). They have navy, black, maroon and tan. I battled a bit to find my size in all the colours, I would of liked a tan pair, but I did come home with the ones I wanted, so I’m happy and my shopping trip didn’t end in me coming home and eating every piece of chocolate in the house whilst having an imaginary conversation with my legs about why they are so short. Hooray.

    I have this same problem! I fit into JJ skinny’s size 7 (woohoo a half size). You should try Cotton On – I suspect the same supplier since they fit the same AND they have tan in stock.

    When I read you blog Angie it is like having a friend at the office telling me cool stories about shopping etc. Wowie!

    Those look great on you!
    I have a problem with buying pants too πŸ™
    When they fit on my legs, I can’t zip them up! When I can zip them up, they are way too long. I suppose I could hem them huh? *too lazy* haha XD
    oh the trials of being short!

    Argh, there’s really nothing worse than jeans shopping. Especially if you have short legs (I do too!). Over here in London I found an amazing pair in H&M and bought 5 pairs! x

    Ah the joys of being short! I have exactly the same problem:(
    These look awesome though…love the colour!

    Oh I have to agree with you, finding the perfect pair is like finding a needle in a haystack. I have a problem with my bum and hips, I have an arse so finding a pair that fits over and compliments my derriere it is like a miracle. You look delish

    FAAAAAAAABBBBBBBB! I have two pairs of Jay Jays jeans and think I need to add these to my collection. Although my sister has to always chop off a bit because my legs are always too short.
