One-Dollar Dailies: 1/30/12-1/31/12

I never thought it was possible, but it is: I'm officially overwhelmed. By shopping. How did that happen??

I can't seem to find the perfect dress pant or the perfect knee-high summer boot - not through patience and diligent swap meet hunting, and not even by throwing money at the problem. After two solid months of orders and returns, all I seem to find are pants that bunch at the crotch and boots in the wrong color/shape/style/size. I didn't even try on the last pair, because the color shown online was not at all true to life. Sigh. I have two more on the way but, after that, I'm admitting defeat officially.

I did have one small victory, though. On the recommendation of youlookfab.com's Angie, I tried Banana Republic's Sloan pant. They are slightly tight in the rear, but they create the least crotch problems of all pants I've tried so far. Yay, BR!

    Sometimes it happens to me too! When I want something, I can't find the perfect one! Love the pants and the fit!
