I’ve drooled over colorful pants for years but just couldn’t justify the price tags to get some good ones.
In the home-decorating arena, I can recreate expensive versions for much cheaper than the originals. But you know what? I can’t even sew on a button. So making some fun pants wasn’t in the stars for me!
My pant-less situation changed a few weeks ago when I was wandering through Marshall’s looking for some home goods. I rarely shop for clothes any more but can’t say no to some pillow shopping.
Shopping for pillows never makes me wonder if I look fat in them, you know?
I accidentally found myself in the clothing clearance aisle, and I stumbled upon pure colored-pant bliss.
Even better? They were on clearance and more clearance. When compared to the original store price tag of $59 a piece, I was thrilled to pay $10-20 for each of these beauties from Nine West.
For the price of one full-price pair, I got four.
You can check my Micah Math, but I think that I scored.
So they are ankle-length “skinny” jeans that fit me perfectly. And did I mention that they are pretty colorful?
Purple, emerald green (Pantone color of the year, yo!), sea foam green, and hot pink.
I have learned time and time again that sometimes it’s worth it to buy the finer things in life. But I refuse to pay full-price. I was in shock in the dressing room when these were so comfortable and perfect!
And on clearance!
So I went back to the rack and found a few more colors in the same style. I can’t believe my luck today.
I haven’t worn the purple or emerald green yet, but the other two were down-right alarmingly beautiful. I am so tickled to add to my wardrobe for such a great price!
My closet has welcomed these four pairs of pants with open arms. It’s so much fun to find the perfect addition to so many shirts in there! I feel amazing when wearing them and was happy to give them a new home.
Maybe I should check that clearance rack more often, huh? The Marshall’s/TJ Maxx family of stores has never let me down.
Have you scored any happy findings lately?
