Fit: These pants are not too bad as far as the fit concerned. They are about 1.5 inches bigger than my actual waist measurements. This problem can be easily fixed with a belt (don’t we all learn that from PFC#1?). At first, I was trying to hold up my pants with a leather skinny belt. Skinny belt just wouldn't do the job. These belt loops are too big for skinny belt. Therefore, I had to wear a wider belt to keep the pants stay on my hips. The length, in the other hand, is perfect for my height with lower heels (29 ½ inches inseam for petites)
Style: I am loving the style, very classy and sophisticated. They are 100% line. Personally, I think LOFT/Ann Taylor has better styles than BR lately. These are straight-leg pants. Therefore the cut is slimmer throughout hips and thighs. I do wish Ann Taylor carries petites in stores
Price points: Even though with $20.00 discount, these pants are still at a higher price point for me (almost $80.00). I don't think I've spent that much $$ on a pair of pants in the past. Today (09.01) is the last day for $20.00 off any full-price pant purchase plus free shipping
Verdict: I am taking these back and wait for a better sale (perhaps 40% off full-priced item). I like them but I am not completely in love with them. I am sure I can wait for further sale.
On a different note, if you’re looking for a tiny button-down shirt, give this Ann Taylor Petite Perfect Cotton Shirt a try. This shirt is available in 5 different colors for petites. I am loving the dusty blush color as well. I got this shirt in 00P and it is tiny. The length was almost too short for me to tucked in. $58.00 was a little much for a button-down shirt but I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. A button-down white shirt goes with everything and I know I’ll wear it for years.
