I loathe buying pants. Nothing will make you feel fatter than repeatedly pulling on and off ill-fitting pairs of jeans, and it always alarms me when I fail to fit into the size I think I am, which inevitably is much smaller than the size I actually am. When Suzanne from W29 offered us a pair of jeans from Australian label Maise, I was flattered, but secretly dreaded having to go through the whole sucking and squeezing process that would be required for the tight looking pants presented. Surprisingly, I managed to wiggle in without a problem, and although they were slightly snug, the jeans fit Christina and I perfectly. Save for one little snag---they're meant to be cropped mid-calf, but due to our homunculus proportions, they actually fit us like normal pants! We were given the option of a pre-distressed dark denim version, and a sorbet-orange tie-dye wash. Christina convinced me to chose the orange pair, and now we've added another matching item to our 66S wardrobes. I can't wait to wear these jeans through the spring and the summer!
A couple more styles from the Maise Spring 09 collection, including this perfect light washed pair on the right, which I'm tempted to order for myself.
