Earrings: from NYC Blazer: J.Crew Hacking Jacket in 00P (review coming soon)
Pants: Gap Cord Leggings in 00P in "Aubergine" (available in regular, petite, and tall inseams)
Corduroys don't exactly have the best reputation in the fashion world...the mere word reminds me of faded-kneed, wide-ridged cord pants sported by many at elementary school recess. However, a reader mentioned Gap's skinny cords a while back, and I was very intrigued by this denim-alternative, updated with a skinny cut and a selection of rich Fall colors.
Nick: "fix yo earrings!"These are stretchy and lightweight (note: thin), and for reference, fit just like their legging jeans. I love the aubergine purple, but what is up with the 26" inseam? The website lists petite inseam at 27" but my measuring tape says a solid 26.
I have noticed with recent online orders of Gap legging jeans that the petite length is getting shorter and shorter than last year's jeans - too short even for this 5 foot tall gal. Being that petite sizing is for women 5'4" and under, I'm a bit miffed. I got these for 40% off but returned them. I'd rather pick up the regular 00 on deeper sale and hem them myself, than wear too-short pants in the cold (plus who knows how much they'd shrink after a wash & dry!).
Readers - will you be sporting corduroys this Fall?
