These pants do strange things to me; they are the most unflattering things I own. They're all the things short people should stay away from: cuffed, flood-length, pleated. Yet it never fails that I get compliments every time I put them on!
Wearing these pants is basically saying, "I don't have to wear a skirt and super-high heels to be feminine." Wasn't it Marilyn Monroe who said, "Your clothes should be tight enough to show you're a woman, but loose enough to show you're a lady"? I'll take my fashion cues from her every once in a while.
