Pants Too Long? Buy Taller Shoes

My dear friend Cee (of To Brighten My Day fame) never ceases to crack me up with her little nuggets of wisdom. A few weeks ago when I was debating how much to hem my Theory pants, Cee made the comment (in the subject of this post) which I’ve been telling J (jokingly, of course) when he complains about my buying him pants that are too long.

The pants that I am wearing in this post are from Ann Taylor and they are about 6 inches too long for my stubby legs. I haven’t been to a tailor in a while so these have been just sitting in my closet waiting for its owner to find some motivation to hem it. I really wanted to wear it the other day so I decided to take a page from Cee’s book and put on (one of) my tallest shoes and voila, problem (temporarily) solved.

Thank goodness for crafty blog friends who make our lives easier.
