I love my Pixie Pants!

J crew has had at least 3 iterations of these pants.  I think the first generation pixie pants had the equestrian seams on the inner knee and the material was a bit shiny.  I first saw them on one of my classmates in spring 2010; she literally wore them every day or every other day. I could not stop staring at her butt because of that crazy zipper.

They are $88 and sometimes they go on sale for $69 or something.  I've stalked them for months since buying them because they seem to be so popular on the website but I never see anyone else wearing them but me (and the classmate who introduced them to me).  I bought mine in early fall 2010 during a 30% off sale with a few other items thrown in for free shipping!  But the black ones are versatile and awesome.  I think they are much more than just glorified leggings.  I actually wear them to work and think that they go with everything.  Since I wear a lab coat, no one realizes that i have a back zipper at which to stare. But if I may say so myself, they make my bum look good.

 The dry clean only tag did not deter me--i've been machine washing them cold and hang drying them without any consequence at all.  Now J crew is making them in all sorts of lengths and sizes, it makes my head spin.  I read from other blogs that they run small, and when I got them the 0 fit me well.  I wonder if the current 00 would be equivalent to the old 0 now?
