More Fall Fashion Finds – Pant Focus and Londa’s How-To’s

I could do these jeans – or change a less expensive pair to look like these! All I need is my Discharge Paste and a sponge brush to take away color on the thighs (But honestly, WHY would I want to make my thigh area a lighter color and attract attention there???) Now – perhaps down the inseams and the side seams – then attack the stitching with a Topstitching needle and new thread. White is pretty daring in my book though. I still prefer the Topaz Jeans Stitch Thread. I always keep it handy to do jean alteration work.

Pant legs seem to be narrow – pegged, slim….. yuck! Won’t last – then you’ll be back for more flattering straight and boot leg silhouettes next year – that’s my prediction! Meanwhile, it does seem though that there are LOTS of pant options. In the In Style Magazine, I found ads from Levi – new Curve ID pairs – for whatever shape your behind is in…and offered in skinny, staight and boot cut. Go to

Then a fold-out ad from GAP caught my eye as well -0 offering black pants in slim cropped, modern boot, boy fit, true straight, really skinny and curvy options. THAT ad will get me into the store! The silhouettes were really, really well shown.

BEWARE OF SLANTED MIRRORS in the stores! Always check out the mirrors – in the show room and in the dressing room…if the lower portion stands out from the wall more than the top – the mirror is purposely placed that way to make you look – OH – at least 10 lb. thinner! Can I get glasses for everyone to do that for my body every day – ALL the time please?
