I will start by apologising for no photos:( I have had my best friend and her 3 boys staying and I am exhausted.. I am used to only one child in the house so four (boys) is always a bit of a stretch lol...they only left a few hours ago.
Now the big news, the (MY) EF Harem Pants arrived today! I could not be happier. The fit is great, the size S seems to be the right size. The XS would have been too tight on my waist and any larger would have simply been too oversized. Not having experienced EF in person before I did of course wonder if it was worth the money - thy expensive items for my budget - and I am thinking the answer seems to be yes it is. The fabric is lovely, the workmanship appears to be excellent, I can wash these at home (bonus) and given that the style is not really "trendy" I think they are an item that will have considerable longevity in my wardrobe.
I am thrilled that many of my tops and jackets will work beautifully with the harems, and quite of a lot of my footwear works also. I quickly put together a 'dressy' outfit for say a function,or even a wedding, with dressy top and footwear and then a weekend outfit with casual shoes, striped tee and short, soft (draped) cardigan. I am thrilled with the versatility.
I am planning to wear them with slides and a short draped top on Saturday for a casual party at home and then with a short jacket and open toe wedge heel booties for my first day back at the office next Tuesday. My mind is full of styling ideas, I feel giddy.
Thanks so much to Rabbit who alerted me to the sale via her post on the Forum, and to those of you who advised re sizing and to Dashielle and her DH for checking hers for me. It has been one of those wonderful 'village' experiences that makes me love and appreciate YLF.
Of course now I can see a serious EF addiction in the making lol!
I will post pics this week, time permitting, but I am so excited that I wanted to share.
One question for those that have these pants. Do you cold wash them in your washing machine as per the instructions? I feel confident this should be fine but just wanted to check how you care for them.
Mine are a little longer in the leg than the models but still some ankle showing if I wear a boot:)
