ok, they really have nothing in common, but they were the two things on my mind tonight.
you know when you hit that seasonal changeover in your clothing? when you can't wear the shorts and capris anymore because it's just a little too cold, when you have to pull out the pants from last winter? you know the feeling you have when you try on that first pair and you are overjoyed when they fit, sometimes better than the last time you wore them 6 months ago? i don't have this issue with shirts, just pants...
all spring and summer i wore eddie bauer's vashon fit capris. i LOVED them, i bought a pair in almost every color. they were really comfortable, and i haven't always worn really comfortable clothing. struggling with my weight hasn't been good for choosing clothing, so i will just deal with what i can find most of the time. but in january, i found the vashon fit and i fell in love. so vashon is a low waisted pant fit and i've always worn my pants/capris at or above waist level. it just felt safer that way. i wouldn't show off anything i didn't want to be seen. i thought waist high fit was pretty comfy.
until this week when i pulled out my waist fit pants. man, those are HIGH waisted pants! so i concede, low waisted pants are more comfortable. julie, you were right. :) note: they aren't super low, which i appreciate, they are just a little bit lower. i think i'll have to head over to eddie bauer for some more pants... :)
now on to the other half of my title: STUDIO CALICO.
