Pants and Prom time

So I uh tried on my Earnest Sewn and they are skin tight. The measurements were 24x34 but apparently my waist is not 24 inches, so if I get any fatter they won't fit. Aren't these jeans really just another trend or something. . .I don't really want to be uncomfortable anymore. So I vow that these are going to be the last jeans I buy for a while, for the very least.
Chambray trousers in spring and wool trousers in winter might be a better idea. . ., and since my mom gets hers all custom made in Shanghai I guess that's what I'll be doing. It's about the price of the Topshop ones, ($80), and superb quality. Because yes, in China, these craftspeople are not appreciated. Complicated haircuts cost $2, Jesus Christ.

Oh and on another note, all the prom happenings. Is it just me or are the little skiny F21 style tubes getting to be too much? I mean I understand that not a lot of people can get high couture gowns from Jean Paul Gaultier or Dior, but there are costumes out there for less than $200, that actually resemble dresses, and not shiny tubes. The F21 ones are just. . .ew.

Modcloth is where I'm going to get mine, if all else fails. they have all the unique designs from indie designers, and if they close down before my prom happens I would have to do a lot a lot of math. (See I'd only get to New York with all those shops if I can make this girls math contest. . .pretty much)

This dress was already sold out. . .to prom kids with good taste. It's under $100 and looks like something a girl would wear, not a cheap hooker.
This one is not sold out, and has such a painterly print. . .I think it was under $70.

The cut and design of this one is beautiful, so is the color. It's simple and beautiful in a subtle way, and much better than F21. Oh this is $200.

Yeah the lace inlays are absolutely my favorite. This was sold out, and it does sort of resemble a tablecloth but not in a bad way at all.

Navy blue is what I want. . .a cooler design than this though. But any normal person looking for a dress, not art could pick this baby up.
I guess thrift stores are really good places, and consignment shops, but only through many many trips could you actually find the one dress you really like, and that's a bit annoying.
