Blue Coat & J.Crew Pixie Pants

I finally got to wear my Pixie Pants this past weekend. I was shocked when I took them out of the packaging, to feel how firm the fabric felt. It was as if I were holding a pair of jeans in my hand. I tried them on and could understand why people loved these pants so much, they are super comfy. I am quite tall, 5'7/5'8 and the normal length of pixie pants fit nicely. The fabric, I would say is very dense elastic, its firm yet smooth against the skin, and hugs you like a glove. There is a zip at the back with a hook and eye for closure (which is a pain when you need to go to the ladies room!) 
I would recommend getting a size smaller than your usual pants size because even though the size I bought fit me well, after wearing them around out and about during the day, I could feel them sliding down a little bit, which meant I had to pull them up a few times. 
As you can see in some of my pictures there is a bit of gathering of fabric around my knees and a few other places. This size doesn't fit me perfectly. Even though they don't fit me perfectly I am keeping this size, but since I love these so much I'll buy another pair (sometime in future) in a smaller size to fit me better. From there I can compare these ones (size US6) with a smaller size (size US4). 
For those of you who may be wondering I am usually a size Aus 10, sometimes an Aus 8 depending on what clothing item it is.

    1. Hey Joelyne !
      Thanks, I got them from www.jcrew.com They had a promotion of free shipping, as they have just started to ship internationally. I got them for $120, pricey but so worth it !

  2. Those pants are awesome! I have a pair similar(but a bit more legging-like) and they have become my favorite.
