New Grey Skinnies

Daily Outfit, 3/11/11

I have wanted some grey skinny jeans forever.  I have been stalking these ones on Banana Republic for a couple of months now, but they’re sort of expensive and I haven’t had good luck with BR skinnies.  The last pair didn’t have any stretch at all in them – my thighs said they felt claustrophobic.  I wasn’t going to pay a lot of money to have that experience again.

Enter that Savior of the Wallet, that Friend to Bargain Hunters Everywhere, that Mecca of Savings… Target!

I mentioned this in my last Weecap, but I got these grey skinnies at Target last weekend for $6.24!  And they’re long length!  And they really are long enough – they go right down to the top of my foot.  Needless to say, I was ecstatic at this find.  Today I paired them with a long-sleeve tee (Gap), dolman sweater (BCBG), cashmere scarf (Nordstrom) and my low boots (Target), but I think they’ll go with nearly everything.

Now for the skinny (heh, see what I did there?); I would say these run true to size.  I’m wearing a size 14 and they’re a little big in the waist, but most every pant is for me.  I will say, however, that these run tight in the calf.  If you have bigger calves, I’m not sure how these would work.  They’re way tighter than my Flirt skinnies, for example, in the calf area.

I haven’t tried any of Target’s other jeans in the long lengths, but if I do, I’ll be sure to let you all know how they fit.  Have any of you tried Target’s long denim?  If so, how did they work for you?

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  Do any of you have any big plans?  I’m going to attempt to get crafty, but as I’m not a crafty gal, I’m not sure how that’ll work.  I’ll let you know though!
