pant tales


St. Patrick's Day is bringing me a little luck of the Irish as I nabbed a pair of pants I had been missing all my life! Introduced to me by a friend, these pants are most excellent: high-waisted, super flattering, sharply-tailored, wide-legged, and cropped. But what makes them holy-grail perfect is that they hit exactly--and this is key!--at the ankle bone. (If any shorter, the pants look like high-waters, I think.) Isabel Marant makes the pants, and my friend loves them so much she bought them in three colors--white, black and army green. The only hitch: they're from last summer! I've spent the last week looking high and low for them and finally today I was delighted to discover my four-leaf clover: the pants have just been re-issued this season in black. Hooray! I also found these less expensive stand-in's from J.Crew, T by Alexander Wang, A.L.C. and Vince.

Love the shoes, too. If anyone is still looking for these pants, Farfetch has them in black, khaki, and white.

I love the look of the Isabel Marant pants - and they're not crazy on sale! But I'm wondering if they stretch out after wearing. I bought a similar pair of Isabel pants last year that had linen in them and they stretched out so much after an hour that they were literally unwearable. Thank you!
