I loved my white Editors last summer and wore them a lot. This summer however I wore them only once and did not feel as fab in them. At last I realized why: I cannot tuck or semi-tuck tops into them and untucked tops just don't sing to me this year. I could not tuck into them for two reasons:
-wide waistband and no belt loops so I cannot wear a belt with them and without a belt tucking just does not work well.
- I sized up to get a looser fit in white and my mom took in the waist for me. Unfortunately the way she did it ruled over any exposed top of the trousers - they just bunched too much.
So I decided to remedy this. I undid the seams and took them to my mom to redo, Instead of taking in the waist we moved them a bit lower on the hips than before and she took in sides a bit. Because of this they became longer so we decided to hem them for 2" shoes and make belt loops out of the excess fabric.
Well, I picked them up today - and they are too short!!! The only shoes I can wear them with are my slipper flats with 0.5" heel! :-(
So here is my dilemma: should I leave them like this and wear with flats (I have 3 pars: silver, gold, grey) or let out 1.5 inch to wear with 2" heels? Do they look frumpy with flats? pic 1 is from last year with 2.5" wedge sandals, I wore these trousers the most with them. Pic 2 is how they are now with silver flats. The thing is that even if I let out the remaining hem they will be still too short for those sandals...:-( I have red pumps with 2" heel which may work though but they are not really summer shoes for me.
What bothers me with these flats is that the hem gets caught on the shoe vamp as I walk because it is a bit low: Me Too flats have higher vamp and don't have this problem. Maybe we can let out the hem in front a bit to make them longer so they come completely over the vamp?
Other solution can be to change them into straight legs so heel height is not that critical...
What do you think? Did we ruined them? The ironic thing is that they fit perfectly on top now and have belt loops...but too short!
ETA: I let down the hems. They are just long enough to skim the floor with my highest heels. If my mom can hem them for 0.5" I will be a happy camper :-)
