The holidays have taken a toll on my hips and thighs and so I went a-browsing to see what I might find in the way of some new pants. I happened to remember a really trendy site, which I remembered had lots of options for the above-mentioned. I love looking at clothes! I'm not much different from the majority of the female sex when it comes to that. A few years ago, when I was even more on a budget than I am now, I had a Singer sewing machine and I became obsessed with going to WalMart and looking at all the Simplicity, Butterick, McCalls, Vogue and other sewing patterns in the craft section. I would then pick out the patterns and material that I thought were so cute and sew my own clothing and even make clothing for my son. I rationalized that I was saving money. I was actually paying about the same price as I would if I were just buying my clothes from WalMart. But I had a little bit of the designer going on in me and it satisfied the OCD/ADD in me which needed to obsess on something. I wish I saved some of my creations because there were some real doozies! And I wore them with pride because I had created them. Anyway, back to the site that I was visiting. I won't name any names because I'm not out to hate on any sites or for that matter, promote any. But seriously, would you pay this much for a pair of bloomers? And I don't fault you if you would, 'cause sometimes you just gotta have it! But for realsies, while I think some of these creations would be just the ticket to hide my surge in poundage due to the holidays, would I be willing to plunk down this kind of lettuce? Take a look:
|Let's start with these red beauties||at $253|
|These are a bit more flashy, so $425|
I can tell you that I'm liking these pants - plenty of room for disguising my more-than-ever generous hips. No one would ever know. I think I could even hide a small child in there as well. Is it worth it, I ask? Here are some more options:
|Pretty gorgeous, no? $845|
|These would be my skinny pants||later - $895|
Maybe I... should make it a theme in
blue and get two pairs. One pair for now and one pair for later when I'm much, much thinner!
And finally, a study in price extremes. We have the budget pants alongside the priciest pair of the lot!
|A steal at $104?|
|These are oh, so cute! But $1,215 cute?|
Any advice for a gal who needs...a pair of pants to make her feel great after the holidays? Maybe I should just go back to WalMart and buy the clothes off the rack this time...
