there are some clothes that make you look long and lean, but is it weird that when i wear these pants in particular, i feel tall? a pair of pants giving you a sense of height - no small feat for a petite (pun, very much intended!). these perception-altering trousers are the stovepipe trousers from j. crew. i took them in my regular j. crew bottoms size, though i've read that some sized up. i may get the navy, but will be really pleased if it comes out in another pattern. the inseam is 32 inches, meaning they are perfect un-hemmed for heels. ok, maybe they're 4 inch heels. but i don't have to hem them! :happy lazy dances:
