The hazard part comes from not trying on. I soooooo loved these salmon colored capri's.
I loved the color and they went with the tops I'd purchased, plus lots of stuff I already have, plus I'd planned to wear my new bubble necklaces with them, and they were only $3.59 and Nine West brand. Well...when I got home and tried them on I could get them on, but they fit my legs and butt like a sausage casing. haha I need to lose 5-7 pounds before I can wear them in public without causing mass hysteria. lol So that's a real bummer. I may wear them for outfit photos (just at home) anyway, because who know when and if I'll ever lose that 5-7.
Next item that goes on the hazard list for not trying on before purchasing is this pair of brown ankle pants.I really needed some brown slacks for work and these polyester beauties were only 99 cents. The bad part here is once I got them home I noticed they were a "petite" size. I have other petite pants that do work for me because I guess I have shortish legs. I really like the ankle length pants and thought that's what these were. Well, they're not really. They just fit me that way. People may think they're just oddly short, but I'm going to wear them anyway and pretend they are chic, in style, and purposely intended to be that length. If I knew how to sew properly I could taper the leg a little more at the ankle to make them look better...but I'm afaid if I tried I'd just end up totally ruining them. So I'll have to think about that.
When you see these photographed for my outfits and laugh at how strange they look...just remember I only paid 99 cents for them and I'm determined to rock them out. haha
Okay, so here are the other things I bought that I'm totally happy with. I have colored tank tops to wear underneath the floral tops. I thought the red and white polka dot scarf was fun.
Do you ever buy things because they're inexpensive or just because you love them, but they don't really fit properly? Or do I have a serious problem? Don't answer that last question. I already know the answer. Because.... if I had tried on the above 2 pair of problem pants and realized their issues in the dressing room...would I have gone ahead and purchased them anyway? Probably so. I would have rationalized all of the above to myself and walked right out of the store with them. Like 2 little rescue dogs...only pants.
