I’ve been frustrated with shopping lately, even though all I’m really trying to do is finish updating my pants and jeans capsules. I have had some trouble with these items:

1. Wide leg jeans
2. Navy trousers that are wide or trousers shaped; to replace something that no longer fits well
3. Red pants or jeans (perpetual HEWI, I’m not sure if I only want them in theory and not practice to be honest; most pants are unlined and make my cellulite somewhat visible - something about the color, I guess, even in nice quality pairs)

I seem to between sizes now that rises are higher. For navy pants, I think the ones I ordered from Saint+Sofia will work but I need to exchange for a size down.

I did try on these slim wide legs from Madewell today and brought them home. These are the first ones that have fit me properly. I would want another wash but they aren’t offering that—I am not in love with the whiskering though I’m not totally opposed either. I have a darker wash wide leg jean on order from J Crew so I may choose that instead... IF it works.

I also tried this distressed pair from BR—no pic but they fit. The bottom was too distressed with long threads, but they could be snipped off. The Madewell ones fit slightly better, but I prefer the BR wash
