You know, I almost never shop online. I don't know if it's my body type or my taste, but things never look or fit the way I expect them too once I see them in person. I just couldn't stop revisiting these pants though, in part due to the beautiful color and in part because I was feeling a bit trendy. I finally took the plunge and hallelujah they fit exactly as expected based on the sizing guide. Whew!! Anyways, the color is indeed really beautiful and I think they look cute on my slightly curvy figure. The combo of waist height, hem length, and wide leg is unique and interesting. Hoping these last a long time!
