Note: I am not that person who hangs at H & M, snapping up delicious, fiscally-prudent finds like skinny teen. My overriding opinion of the chain is that they should use a bit more fabric -on everything. I also find the bulk of it kind of disposable - if extremely au courant - in a way that doesn't work for me. Point is, I'm not the demographic. So imagine my delight and surprise (another one of those overused phrases of mine), to discover a workmate was wearing these:
When she told me she'd just bought them for $29.00, I knew a shopping venture was nigh.
Now, in truth, they aren't that high-waisted. Which is fine, as far as I'm concerned, 'cuz I'm not that long-waisted. Their moderate rise (though the label says low-rise, it's not true) is perfect for my shape (short and curvy) and the price is right.
Furthermore, look at all that fabric - this must be where they've been stashing it all :-)
PS - With all the money I saved, I somehow managed to buy a top ($29.00) too:
This photo is only to highlight the shape and does not do it justice. For starters, I bought it in a totally different pattern (a slate background with lilac and black leopard print) which I can't seem to find online. Also, it looks fab with tits, something the model above does not possess.
Once the pants are hemmed, I'll take a picture of the combo for y'all to see.
