For shorties like me, they are ankle pants. But I’m not complaining.
Back story: some of you may know that lately I’ve been blogging about jeans at Eat Sleep Denim, thanks to my pal Jennine who gave me all her jobs she didn’t want anymore, bless her. Because of that gig, I received an email from Citizens of Humanity about these amazing, high-waisted culottes (The Melanie), which were to be available later this summer. I wrote about them then, and I loved them so freaking much that I begged the Citizen’s rep to send me a pair and she did. Here they are in all their gaucho glory.
I’ve been a Citizen’s fan for, like, ever. They always make room for my thighs and don’t gap at the waist, which are two real challenges my hourglass/curvy body type presents for pants. I always take a 28 in every CoH style — and even now at my slightly larger girth, I can still squeeze into that same size. Granted they will be a bit more comfortable if I drop a few pounds.
If you’re as nuts about them as I am, they’re available at Need Supply Co.
