i went to the mall yesterday during my sons' classes to get some shower gel (the boys love philosophy's vanilla cake shampoo and shower gel and if it gets little boys to bathe willingly, i will provide it to them.). i swung into the Gap because i was curious about the blue floral skinny skimmer jeans (here). online, there is a promo (use code GAPDEAL in the US and GAPDEALCA in canada for 30% off your purchase - ends 01/21). here's a quick sizing review in case you wanted to take advantage of the promo.
below is the stock picture from the website. because these are "skimmers" and are cropped on the tall model, i figured for petites, it would be ankle length. it absolutely was. as you can see it hits me right at the ankles (i'm 5'3). i tried both the 0 and the 2, and my "regular" 0 gap/j. crew bottom size fit best. while the waist was a bit more forgiving in the 2, it was too saggy on the rear and at the knees. the picture above is the 0, and it seemed more streamlined. the colours in real life are not as bright as depicted on the site.
i ended up with a pair of the metallic star legging jean (here) and went up a size to a 2 given the more fitted nature of the jeans. i'm not sure i will keep them, even though i scored them for 28$ with the extra 40% off sale in-store. i am thinking that i am too old to have metallic stars on my pants.
