Old Navy amp F21 Fitting Room Picks

I hopped on the Old Navy Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans bandwagon. I had one pair of jeans from The Gap in high school many eons ago that never really fit me right. It had a lot of waist gappage and when it finally ripped at the knee, I was kind of relieved to finally get rid of it. So assuming that The Gap & Old Navy have similar sizing, I was somewhat skeptical, but still curious.

The Gap family had always had generous sizing, so that`s one reason why I haven`t been back to revisit either Gap or ON in so many years. After hearing all the buzz about the jeans, I decided to try these on. The said jeans that I had ripped many eons ago were my only pair of white jeans and I had never gotten a replacement, so I thought this must be my chance. The Rockstar jeans are all $29 now ($34 usually).

Here are my thoughts on the jeans. Also, I don`t know if you can tell, but I`m wearing the Maybelline Toffee Tango lipstick in the pictures below. (Pretty Little Liars, anyone? That teenybopper show is my guilty pleasure.)

The next day, I exchanged the size 4 for a size 2. I`m more happy with the way this pair fit than the rest, because it fit me decently well in the waist and had a lot less wrinkling.
However, I`d say there is still a significant amount of wrinkling around the knees, ankles, & crotch area. Not only that I noticed that these jeans were pretty see-through. You might even notice that you can see the pockets through the jeans.
I`m not sure. I bought it to contemplate some more. If only there was one in a short inseam length for me to try on.

Should I return them and keep looking for a different pair of white jeans that fit me better?

ON sheer sleeveless blouse
This was a nice, simple blouse and the polyester material felt pretty nice. I didn`t purchase, because I didn`t think it was worth the $39 or so dollars.
Plus, I already have a white long-sleeved blouse that I feel is more versatile and work appropriate.

At Forever21, I was able to locate these faux leather shorts ($19.80). I`d been curious to try these for quite some time, but never felt like I could buy them, because the climate here is rarely warm enough to wear shorts. After seeing them on many other bloggers, I felt like I didn`t want to miss out the chance to try them. Plus they were on a rack right in front of the door when I walked in and there was only one pair in size 24, which fit me well, so I took it as a sign that I should buy them. They`re not too obnoxious, since the matte, waxy coating is not shiny or obvious.

passed on the blouses
Next,I tried on these long-sleeved, polyester blouses, which were too boxy and unflattering on me. The sleeves were super long and somewhat bell-shaped? The taupe colored one was especially unflattering against my skin tone. I looked like a very depressing poet, or character from a Shakespearean play. I could have tried to make them work, but I have enough inexpensive button-down blouses.

I believe this sleeveless, heart-print dress was $13.80. I remember it being on the website recently, but I can`t locate the link anymore. I purchased it, because it was so cheap, and I thought the heart print was something fun and different from what I`m used to.

Lastly, I tried on this graphic t-shirt in a art/sketch print. I thought the city-like backdrop reminded me of the SOMA district and the bike rider made me reminiscent of all the bike-riding I did in college. This is a men`s medium, but I pulled the neckline up, and pulled down the back of the shirt so that it wouldn`t be such a plunging v-neck. I bought it to give it to my boyfriend, since he used to do some sketching and he`s an avid bike rider.
Would anyone like to see a picture of him wearing the shirt and see how well it fits him instead of me?
