Happy Wine Wednesday! Today, let’s go with a rundown on the High Times *Wrap Mesh in BORDEAUX drama. See what I did there? Coincidence, but not really. Oh look, my glass is empty. Let’s go fill it! Anyone else all up on the Apothic Red train like my friends and I are?
No. I will sip, but I won’t lay lay until I throw my two cents in about the Wrap Mesh High Times. Then, it’s Parks & Recreation time on Hulu. I just finished season 2, so nobody give anything away!
I saw a peek of Bordeaux Drama from the High Times cubby, so I made a beeline for them, of course. At first, I thought they were actually in the wrong spot. There’s an arc of stitching on the back side (a la speed tights) which I’m not a fan of, so my first reaction was to check the tags to see if these mystery pants were in the wrong place.I was so confused that my face said it all, and the Educator standing nearby asked me if I needed anything upon seeing me make the WTF expression. At least said arched stitching in back was a bit more flattering than I thought it would be. The arc on the rear of Speed Tights make anyone look like they have a flat butt (not in a good way).
Another surprising thing about these, they run a bit longer than a standard pair of High Times. The website doesn’t list a specific number for an inseam, but it was definitely longer on these. If you’re a shorter girl, these will be PANTS on you.
One other note? See above. Loose ankles! That next to never happens to me on lulu pants, and it definitely hasn’t happened with a pair of High Times before. Felt a bit strange.
Then, I turned around, bent over and took a look in the mirror. Sheerness. I go between an 8 and a 10 on bottoms, and the pair I tried on was a 10.
All in all, while I really liked the color, the loose ankles and slight sheerness factor led to the decision to leave these behind in store. I also noticed that one of the girls from my box was wearing a pair the day before, and the ankles were loose on her too. Hers weren’t bordeaux drama, so I know that it isn’t just a defective pair that I tried on.
