The old but new perfect black pants

Earlier this year I got a pair of black pants (here). I wasn't sure about the fit, but I loved the fabric and the idea of finally finding the perfect pair. Well, they turned out not to be perfect. They were designed for a tall person, and were supposed to have a slim fit. I recently found another pair of really good black pants, so I decided to get the old ones altered. I brought the new ones to the tailor, and asked if she could make them just a bit slimmer. They turned out great! I wish that I'd do this more often. I guess I'm scared that I'll ruin the design (and a very expensive pair of pants!), but in this case they really weren't designed for my body type. It's also a matter of finding a good tailor that you can trust.

Isabel Marant trousers, Etoile tee and Hope boots.

Etoile trousers

The pants that inspired me to finally have them altered are quite similair, but the material is different, and they're less dressy. I'm so happy with my desicion, and just wish I'd done it sooner. Have you had anything altered that completely changed how you feel about it?

November by garderob 

I have no idea why I'm all of a sudden in the mood for romantic blouses worn with knitted cardigans. Maybe it's because I was watching Never let me go the other night, but all of a sudden I feel like I should be taking a walk in the English countryside wearing something like this. I wouldn't mind wearing it here either.
