Ankle Pants


Shirt: Old Navy, Jeans: Banana Republic, Belt/Sunnies: Target, Heels: Guess

The thing about being short,
is pants almost never fit. 
Even the petite pants are sometimes too long.
So the pair I am wearing in this photo?
They required some serious alterations.

I had to short them, 
and then have the taper redone.
It was more work than I was expecting.
If I hadn't gotten these for such a good price,
I don't know if it would have been worth it.

But in the end, 
I still think they are pretty great.
Skinnies that are the right length,
and they have a faux leather finished?
Now I just need a biker jacket.

This outfit was worn for a marathon thrifting trip
with my sister in law.
We were out for close to five hours digging through the racks.
And I finally found a jean jacket!
I've been on the hunt for months so I can make a jean vest.
Stay tuned for a DIY!
Also, I found a pretty amazing Ann Taylor top for $3.50.
Gosh I love thrifting!

  1. Loving your outfit. What a great find for $3.50. I'm not the bargain shopper. Those pants are fabulous.
