OOTD: The joys of the tailor.

I had my J Brand Lovestory jeans tailored last week because they were waaaay too long. I'm always afraid of high-waters, so I brought some of my tallest shoes with me to get them hemmed. Now I'm sorta wishing I brought some slightly shorter ones, because when I wore them today with my MICHAEL Michael Kors metallic pumps, I was draggin' a bit. That's ok-- I'm sure a few more washes will bring them up a teense, too. Always better to have them too long than too short! (I remember back in the day when it was super-cool to have your jeans dragging on the ground. They'd get all beat up at the bottom and look worn. Maybe that was just my teenage "middle-finger" to the world. Stickin' it to the man. (Errr sumthin.))

Also what went to the tailor with the jeans: my Snowscape Tank (Anthro, Winter '10). I have been meaning to have it tailored for a while now but never got around to it. The jeans were a perfect excuse to bring the blouse along. So glad I did-- it used to be big enough that it would start drooping in the front and looked saggy. Now it sits higher and it's just plain better. Plus, they brought the darts in. You know... because I can't fill out big-girl clothes. Heh. :)

So what's a girl to do with her newly fitted items? Wear them both, at the same time.

(Also, I look tired. Why do I look so tired? I'm not tired. Maybe it's the ponytail. Hmmm.)

  1. Oh my goodness, LOVE LOVE LOVE - this is so me!!....

    and the 8th grade draggy jeans is hysterical... growing up at the beach we used to go hangout on the boardwalk every night. I wore my big baggy LEI (BAH!) jeans and they would drag so bad and get stuck on the nails in the boardwalk, they were so torn up it was disgusting.... I'm embarrassed for my 14 year old self - but probably more so for the skater t's and ballchain necklaces ::cringe::

  2. Love this outfit!!!

  3. You look so so cute here! Love the Snowscape and sweater combo!

  4. Love the top!! Adorable! I have a new pair of 7 jeans I need to get shortened...who are they really making them for anyway!? 8 foot tall women!?!?

  5. Super cute outfit! Funny you mentioned dragging jeans because I was just thinking about that the other day! The more ragged and dirty the hem, the better. Now I die if my jeans touch the pavement too much.

  6. i have been looking for that darn gold belt from express forever now! love the way you wore the snowscape tank :)

  7. Lol! It was actually attached to a sweater of theirs a few years ago, so it was never sold alone. J Crew has cute ones, tho!!

  8. You look so long and lean!
