(I hate)Shopping for winter clothes

I've been busy lately. Instead of posting like a good blogstress, I have been at the mall looking for warm clothes to wear until Spring. I loathe winter clothes. I've already told ya'll this. I hate long sleeves, they make me feel like I'm in jail. I hate tights, they itch. I hate hats, I'm vain about my hair. I hate gloves, they make my hands sweat. I hate scarves, it feels like a noose. I hate jackets, they are heavy and once you get to your destination you have to drag it around all over the damn place. And most of all I hate pants. Yes, even jeans, the staple must have in every person's wardrobe. But the biggest of my many reasons I hate shopping for jeans/pants can be seen here:

Looks like a nice little outfit right? Navy cardigan, nice fitting jeans.....

Until you scroll down. I'm not a big fan of paying for new jeans and then having to pay even more to get them tailored.

I did end up getting the cardigan but not the jeans. I hate cardigans too but, like I said, I'm not going through another winter feeling like slouchy smurf. I heard about another store nearby that does free alterations. I'll probably go there this weekend.

I'm still looking for the shoes. I might get these for walking just cuz' I'm beginning to feel like a girl Jerry Sienfeld in my old Nikes. I'm just not crazy about the price so let me know if you guys see anything similar for less. I'm also still looking for some boots that don't make my legs look like two stumps.....

I'm 5'3" and have noticed that *all* the pants are too long! It's a mystery who they are being made for....

I'm 5'2" and all pants are too long. Landsend.com hems for free, and I have bought jeans from them.

Chani-they are made for the supermodels who advertise for them....

Thanks 3-that's good to know.

And by the way I did not get that cute sun dress behind me, it was not on sale.....

You are so cute.
I don't tailor my pants - I cut off a few inches and roll them up. If I need to, I sew them like that, but normally it's ok.

I'm 5'4" and either the petites are TOO short or the regular ones are too long. It's ridiculous.

You are gorgeous.

Thanks you guys. No one noticed, I was concentrating so hard on taking that picture that my eyes are crossed :O)

Try to find a western wear store to buy your jeans. They usually have a lot of length options and they don't look like 'western' jeans anymore.

I have that same problem with pants, but I never bother to tailor them.

I'm 5'8" and while regulars are too short, longs are too long. I usually buy long and put them in the dryer for hours in hopes of shrinking them a skootch.
