As promised, I purchased the J. Crew wool capri pants that you chose for my new wardrobe. I had the luxury of color selection: port wine or maraschino cherry. So I figured if I was gonna do this, I was gonna go bright and opted for the cherry. I had tried on the black ones in the store and really liked them. And I had high hopes even as I slipped the retina-burning material over my lower limbs.
But. Something was just off about them. They tapered so sharply from the hips down to the ankles. I had plenty of room in the hip area, but not a ton in the waist and the lower legs. I probably could have sized down, but I’m not sure that would have solved the problem. To sum up my report, you guessed it, haiku:
Capri in red wool
Return to Blossom’s closet.
To conclude, itchy.
Truly, I apologize dear readers. I don’t know what happened. Clearly, fashion mistakes occur even if you think you’ve got an item all sussed out save for the color. Maybe I got a bad cherry, or maybe the black ones in the store were made out of magic. At any rate, thank you for your support and your votes. We’ll keep plugging away – stay tuned for November’s options!
