Fashion and Beauty


September 9, 2014

I’m currently chugging my grande soy latte, jamming to whatever Spotify is serving up on this early morn in the effort to get down my excited words onto this blog page. My heart is bursting with joy. No I’m not pregnant. What the hell are you thinking?

Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about these fabulous Ecru pants that I found at a random boutique? Yes, the ones that I’ve worn twice once a week since I got them. Yes, the ones that are fantastically durable, non-wrinkly, slimming, and yet totally comfortable. Yes, those.

Well you can imagine my immense happiness when one of Ecru’s fab marketing gals Ilana reached out to me to see if I’d like to review some more of their products. Um, YES I would Ilana. I’d also like to refurbish my entire wardrobe with the fabric y’all use to make your pants, but we’ll get to that later.

Ilana suggested I try the Santana panteach of their pants is named after a famous musician, but I’m wondering where the Elton pant is? Have we talked about my Elton obsession yet? Another day, another day… – and obviously since she is the expert I went with her suggestion.

Holy mackerel.

Ecru Pants Giveaway!


I slipped the Santana pants on and it was like I transformed into Sandy from the last scene of Grease, but they aren’t skin tight like hers were — they just made me feel totally on point and hawt. I may have even done a little box step to test them out. I wore them to work last week with a black peplum top – I really did want to channel my inner Sandy that day with the black-on-black ensemble – and I felt fantastic. Tell me about it, stud.

Before I get all You’re the One That I Want  on you, let’s chat about the fit of the pants for a second. Last time I said that you should go up a size to make sure they aren’t too tight for work purposes. I was wrong. See Wilson, I can admit when I’m wrong. Don’t go up a size. If you are buying them for work, buy your true size. If you are buying them for personal wear, you could even go down a size. The fabric is stretchy and will gradually loosen, much like jeans do. I haven’t put my pants in the dryer yet because putting them in the washing machine will get them back to their original size, but I may put them in the dryer moving forward if they are still a little looser than I’d like. No one wants mom-jeans-butt. No one.

And because everyone deserves to have some Ecru pants, Ecru is giving away a free pair of pants to one lucky SST reader.

So, what are you waiting for? Get to entering so you can channel your inner Sandy. You’re the one that I want… oo oo oo

**This post was sponsored by Ecru, but the only reason they contacted me is because I covered their pants first. Haha. All thoughts, opinions and writing is, of course, my own. I will never post about a product I do not believe in. Lying is for losers.
