The funny looking Jodhpur pant is all over this year’s runway and leggings have become a bit too …well, blah. At last, the perfect in-between that has it all, the J.Crew Jersey-knit (Ponte) pant. Then in good fashion, Vogue features this sleek black ankle pant and there it appears– the dreaded waiting list. I hopped online first thing in September (ordering 2 sizes to make sure at least 1 fit) and finally on the last day of November they arrived. It was well worth the wait they are everything I wanted them to be: slim, midweight, yoke details on the inside of the legs, and the perfect gold exposed-zipper up the back. They look amazing day or night, with a patent flat or a 4-inch pump. I wore mine out on the town with a hammered satin top, over-sized jewels, and killer heels. Their ease and versatility dub them this season’s must have staple!
~Maureen and I just got back from our business trip to San Francisco yesterday…so I’m a little out of it today. The trip was good though, especially since we had a little downtime to do some shopping. I don’t know what it is about getting out of your own city—all the stores in SF were the same, but all of a sudden it was like a new world of shopping! I think we both did a little damage (I’m wearing some of the spoils today) but I redeemed myself by picking up a pair of Phil’s favorite summer shoes at J.Crew. So it wasn’t completely selfish. -alexis
