One example of a decidedly imperfect item that I love anyway is my favourite pair of (non-denim) trousers - a pair of black cigarette pants. They began life as a hideous pair of too small boot-cut trousers purchased in a work emergency (long story can be read here) in 2008, which I then had a tailor rework into my dream black cropped skinny trousers. I've worn them steadily ever since because they look perfect.
The catch: the waistband cuts in a little too narrowly so sitting down for long hours can get uncomfortable. Not painful, but noticeable. I have a feeling it's not really good for my circulatory health either.
So I've decided to add the perfect black cigarette pants to my shopping list for the year.
The fantasy solution is of course, choosing a little something from Celine's Five Perfect Trousers collection, but in actuality, I had a more democratic solution in mind - Gap's Premium Pant collection, specifically the Slim Cropped. Shall check them out when I have time to go shopping soon.
Anyone else has suggestions? And do you have flawed things that you love anyway?
