Quest for Perfection

Who among us does not yearn for that perfect item of clothing, easy to wear, goes with everything and fits like a glove. 

For years now I’ve been on a quest for black pants that fit that description.  Have I had any luck?  Not so much.  I thought these would be the answer to my prayers.  They are from the Gap premium black pant collection.  In the dressing room they where divine, but after wearing them for a day and sitting in them, they are all baggy now.  The butt is baggy, the knees are also baggy, baggy = bad, bad = sad.

So tell me my fashion mavens, have any of you found that perfect pair of little black pants?

Black top – Inc. Macy’s
Black pants – Gap ( slim cropped fit )
Cardigan – J Crew Outlet
Leopard flats – Sperry
Necklace – beads – J Crew, locket – vintage from my Grandmother

    They look pretty good on you (and I love that sweater!). Was this before the day or at the end of the day? Have you tried the Editor or Columnist pants at Express?

    Would this be the reason why I keep getting black pants from you? That is not a complaint. 🙂 Love my “Doreen hand-me-ups!”

  4. I’m still on the hunt. Basics seem to be the hardest to find. The perfect ones that is.

    An aside, but you’ve been awarded:

    I’m sorry you were disappointed but, I have to say, this is a beautiful, elegant look. The length of the sweater is absolutely perfect. The proportions of the outfit work wonderfully. This is one of the best looks I’ve seen in months.
