I've been jonesing for a pair of mint colored skinny jeans. I was ecstatic (read: ec.sta.tic) to find some on Asos for under $50 in more pastel colors than you'd see in an Easter basket. Since my size is 2 petite or 0 regular, I opted for the "US 2" size. When they arrived, I could barely stuff my legs into them; forget about getting them all the way up and fastening them. Therefore, I re-ordered in a size 4. THEY FIT THE SAME.
I feel like a sausage-y beached whale right now.
I could send them back and re-order again, but I don't find that that's a quality use of my time and energy. I don't think my tender psyche can handle another such disappointment. I give up, Asos.
At least I have my J. Crew Cafe Capris in neon rose and tropical aqua. They did come out with the Scout chino in mint, but of course by the time they went on sale, my size was sold out. And then one time I saw them in Target, but they only had one stinkin' pair in a size 16. I checked on the Target website and predictably, again, they were sold out in my size.
I'm seeing mint jeans all over the blogosphere and Pinterestville but I can't find any for myself. Maybe I'm not destined to have any. I'll just have to be more creative - a chance to exercise my styling muscle.
