When something fits me well, I tend to buy it in every color possible. At 5'4" on a good day with lots of curves, it's particularly difficult to find pants that are a good length and fit for me. I've been loving the J. Crew Minnie pants for a while and end up getting at least one color every season. But the price of the Minnies stops me from buying them in bulk.
Oh yes, I could write an ode to these perfect pants. They stretch perfectly to fit without stretching out in an hour and hit just at the ankle. Love. But $90+ for everyday pants is not in the budget.
When I discovered the Winnie pants at J. Crew Factory, I was thrilled! The price point is a little bit better than the Minnie pants, at about 20% less than the regular retail price. I have both Minnie and Winnie pants. They fit exactly the same and the quality is comparable. I can tell the difference only by looking at the tag; outlet tags from J. Crew have a diamond on them, J. Crew store tags do not have a diamond.
But imagine my surprise and delight when I found the same style of pant in the same fit for a fantastic price this weekend at Target! Enter the Mossimo Ankle Stretch Pant (Fit 3), which is a dream pant. The pants fit exactly like the Minnie/Winnie and have a look that is similar to the Cafe Capri with side pockets that are sewn shut and a button waist. Available in a wide array of colors, you can afford to buy multiples at an amazing price of $20.
