Wore these out!
I love these pants. I wear them all the time for lounge and as a basic black pant. They go with everything and I love how easy the fit is-I am the anti-skinny jeans girl. However, I wish the waistband had more support. It's made from a folded piece of rib jersey, which loses its elasticity quickly after several washes. I am going to have to put an elastic in the waistband or replace it so they stay up. They fall down now! Shopbop-please make these again with a more reinforced waistband. Does't have to be thick or super sturdy. A soft wide elastic please!

Good fashion shoe for surgery recovery!
I had bunion surgery on both of my feet in February. Around this time, I can wear real shoes and my doctor instructed me to wear shoes with a small wedge of heel (has more arch support than flats). I sadly had to give up all my designer ballet flats and sandals, and look for new ones with low wedges. Not easy to find cute ones like these Madewell ones! First of all, you can't beat the price. The shoe is easy to wear-it's a normal style that goes with everything. The straps cover my scars a bit, so that helps. I have to use some insole and arch gel supports because I am still recovering from surgery, but the shoe itself was comfortable. I am so glad I found these and that they allow me to look cute during the nice weather! One less thing to worry about during this difficult recovery. This fashionista doesn't have to wear running sneakers all the time anymore or be at a complete loss for style.
