I am not much of a trousers girl, but the minute I spotted this pair, I knew I had to have them. They were lurking on the hanger behind a couple of white blouses. Crisp, clean. “It is the last pair”, pointed out one of the shop girls as she saw me coveting them. They were a size too small. But ladies, when we really want something, we don’t mind sweating a little bit for it. I had to squeeze myself in. Yes they were a size too small, but those oh so straight legs that make mine look lengthier, and that high waist that makes mine look daintier… I had to have them! Besides, no one else can tell; and I am not one to complain. 

No soy mucho de vestir pantalones, pero en el momento en el que vi este par, supe que debían ser míos. Los encontré colgando tímidamente detrás de unas cuantas camisas blancas. “Es el último par”, apuntó una de las dependientas de la tienda, tentándome. Eran una talla por debajo de la mía; pero, no es ningún misterio que cuando de verdad queremos algo, no nos importa sufrir un poco para obtenerlo. Tuve que aguantar la respiración para entrar en ellos. Sí, eran una talla por debajo de la mía; pero…, esas piernas rectas, que hacen que las mías se vean más largas; y esa cintura alta, que hace que la mía se vea más fina… ¡Debían ser míos! De todas formas, nadie más puede notar que son una talla más pequeña, y yo no soy de las que se queja.

    You are right—the trousers fit you perfectly at the right height. Very acceptable with a cute white top. Have you considered trying various shades of blue tops with these trousers? I think you could also pick any solid or bright patterned top and be looking fabulous! 😀
