I was looking to snag some sales on summer tops. I’m a small size. They sell out fast. I stay on top of sales at my favorite stores on-line. I don’t need bottoms but always cruise those too just in case there is something I like for cheap.
There was a pair of capri pants in an unusual color. Unusual means that the tops I currently own will not work with it. Still I’m intrigued. (Usually I buy it, try to match it up, it doesn’t work, then return it. I haven’t learned that lesson to stick with the classic colors.)
And so it happened. I found a pair of capris in a color they called tawny rose. I love rose-pink colors. Tawny means there is some brown in it and that doesn’t go with the bright pink summer tops I have but I am not daunted.
I’m buying on-line so I go to the review. (Don’t you just love reviews? Interesting, sometimes salty, rarely helpful yet we hang on every word!)
First one up says she has a dromedary issue with it. I spit my coffee out on my computer.
For you newbies out there who didn’t spit your coffee out, that means that the front rise seam is short and gives you a “frontal wedgie” commonly called camel toe. It’s both uncomfortable and unattractive. Reading more reviews, it seems to be a problem with the style although no one else called it a dromedary issue. Someone noted that it’s overly fitted through the glutes (I know! Doesn’t anyone speak English anymore? What’s wrong with tight in the butt?). I passed on it.
I looked at one other pair of long pants on sale. One reviewer said it puddles at the hem. Does that mean it’s too long? I don’t think puddling hems are in style. They would get dirty fast!
I successfully bought four new tops in delightful colors that work with what I have although I’m yearning for that pair of dromedary challenged tawny rose capris.
