I haven’t worn a pair of trousers out for about 6 years. Seriously, it’s been that long! I’ve definitely mentioned quite a few times before that shopping as a vertically challenged person is not at all easy. I simply lost the will to live when it came to trouser shopping and it’s not just being short that was the hindrance… I’m happy to take a trip to the tailor so he can hack off a foot of material from the bottom of most things, but like a lot of people I don’t have a perfectly shaped body. In the past, if trousers fitted in the waist then they didn’t fit in the leg and if they did fit in the leg, then they were too tight on the rear – You get the jist. When I get fed up with something, I really get fed up with it, so I totally gave up on trousers for a very long time.
I’m not sure what happened this weekend, but I suddenly got the urge to give them another chance. I’ve managed to get by wearing dresses and skirts for an age now and have always been quite happy, but something was niggling at me, so I started an online browse. After hours of trying to find a pair that didn’t have a peg leg (for my lacking-in-definition ankles), I purchased one pair of trousers. One pair – The one and only chance I was giving trousers again!
To my absolute amazement, this pair of Vero Moda Very Printed Trousers fit perfectly. I’m still in total and utter shock. I don’t even have to take them for a trip to the tailor, they were in the sale AND I’ve even got a top and jacket sitting in my draw that completes the look. Did I mention I am in total and utter shock!?
My only dilemma today is whether I should stop with the trouser shopping right now and just bask in the glory of a fabulous piece of luck, or whether I should continue to look for a few more pairs to fill my A|W wardrobe…
