When Your Pants Don’t Fit Right – Fashion Faux Pas

Lynn Kelley, when your pants don't fit right

I didn’t care about fashion faux pas when I was a kid.  Get a load of those flood pants!

Life is never dull, especially when we have an unexpected fashion faux pas. I’ve had plenty in my life, but I’ll focus on one in particular.

For my 60th birthday (March 2016) my mom and youngest sister, Cindy, took me to lunch. I wanted them to help me make a short video of us dancing, which I planned to use for my blog post in  August McLaughlin’s 2016 Beauty of a Woman Blog Fest. (Here’s the link to August’s blog if you want to read the other entries.)

So, I did a test run before Mom and Cindy arrived to make sure all three of us would fit in the shot. When I watched the test clip, I was surprised at how funny my pants looked while I was dancing. They weren’t harem pants, but they were doing a bad imitation.

Here’s the video:

I hurried and changed into another pair of pants so I’d look presentable in the video and at the restaurant for my birthday lunch.

I still have those off white pants. Two pairs, in fact. Same color. They’re stretchy and comfy and they were on sale! They fit just right when I bought them. That was over two years ago. Since then, they’ve stretched out more than they should and also shrunk a bit in the length. However, I still wear them quite often, but I never dance in them, and I try to remember to check my outfit in the mirror before going out in public.

  1. LOL! I can’t think of any specific instance at the moment, but I’ve had plenty of fashion faux pas in my time! Mainly because I just don’t care enough to worry about it. And yeah, it’s hard to find pants that fit right when you’re short and pudgy. The only thing that’s easy for me to find that fits is shoes!

      Yay for having an easy time finding shoes that fit! I have a hard time with that. I’m sure I’ve had lots of fashion flubs and didn’t even realize it! Not stressing about it is a good thing, so you have the right outlook. Thanks for stop by, Jennette!
