my problem with capris is that i have short pudgy legs so they look not long enough to be full length but not short enough to look like capris 🙁 sucks to be me!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:02 pm
I’m short too so I probably look squat in capris, but I like they so I DON’T CARE if people think I’m ugly, hee!

I’ve been looking for capris for YEARS. I have the same issue that you do – they all have wide legs, and I have small-ish legs especially at my calves and ankles. I’ll have to go check out a pair of Ralph Lauren’s, because after trying on dozens and dozens I have found one other pair that look decent on me. So thanks for the idea! 🙂
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:05 pm
It was SO BAD trying on capris everywhere and looking like this big butt/thighs on top of skinny ankles/calfs. Thank goodness these are nice! I’m happy 😀 Do check ’em out!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:01 pm
Those are one nice pair of capris!
But I think it might not fit me because I am kinda generous at the hips :\
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:06 pm
I have big hips compared to the rest of me, and they do fit me! 🙂
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:07 pm
Hmmmm.. but you are really tiny! And yes, ultra slim legs!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 1:14 pm
Where did you get THAT from? Well i guess depends who you compare with, I guess.. tiny compared to Chris. Very average size compared to any other Singaporean chick 🙂

Ooh, I love wearing Capris too! Wear them all the time. I think it’s perfect especially when you need something not too casual and not too formal. Or when you don’t feel like wearing jeans that day. So versatile, can either dress it up or down with heels or flats. 😛

I think capris are good for summer! And good for work too.. I’m so pleased to have ‘discovered’ a new look, haha. I’m a weirdo.

i love that quote you have; i’m the exact same way! *grin*
i hope you’ll consider keeping me on your friends list… i don’t use my LJ except to comment, but i do have a normal website (http://lavendar.smartass.nu/), just so you don’t think i’m blank and faceless. hee.
but seriously, i LOVE reading your entries because it gives me insight into a completely different country and different ways of being. you’re just plain awesome! =)

Hey thanks for letting me know.. didn’t realise you were in Ontario, it’s gorgeous there. Maple syrup.. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

oh man! we’re of the same age but you are so much more independent! especially in your finances! *ashamed*
Well, out of necessity, since I live in a different country to my parents 🙂 In retrospect, I’m glad I did though – it’s no fun being a spoilt only child who has no idea about the real world IMHO!
posted on October 9, 2005 at 2:32 am
yes, it’s a good move. 🙂
if you don’t mind..can i ask, how did you end up working in australia?
posted on October 9, 2005 at 11:12 am
I lived here with my parents when I was young.. then moved back here again for uni, then got a job straight after at Microsoft so I just continued staying here 🙂

I didn’t know your mum’s name was Christine. Great name 😀

Ya! It’s funny ‘cos “Chris” is short for Christine, as it is for Christopher.. they have the same name, haha

Don’t delete me! I’ll be sad forever! And the questionnaire thing is cute, I think I’ll steal it for my lj! 🙂 But I might edit some ;þ
I like that pink cashmere jumper!! But it’s a good thing you didn’t buy it, I mean, it’s coming up to summer, you won’t have much use for it til next year! And by then you’d probably have found much better clothes to buy! 🙂
I used to wear pedal-pushers when they first became really really in (back in 1998 or so). I was so obsessed with them! But then I got sick of them, and they make me looks heaps short 🙂
BTW, how do you make those smiley/emoticon things on your lj? They’re so cute!!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:20 pm
I won’t, I know ya silly! 😛
I’ve never worn short pants before, but they are so cute 😛 They’ll be good for summer. I got my smilies from mazeguy.net, I’m obsessed with them now, haha

Hey, I looove those lil’ icons! If you don’t mind, I’d love to d/l and use ’em whenever too! 😛

Of course! I’m trying to hunt down more cute icons like that too 😛

Hey Bev, I probably fall into one of your categories that would get me deleted from your friends list – the only thing I use my LJ account for is to read your entries, so don’t delete me! lol

Heya, thanks for letting me know! 🙂

I’ve been writing about new drinks in my blog too 🙂 Great minds think alike. I’ve been trying to find capris forever too. The last time I wore capris was 7 years ago, from a cheap store. I liked them because they were tight and stopped at the knee. Now all the ones are baggy at the leg, which make me look shorter because they cut you at the fattest part of my leg and they make me look hippy. Every summer I search in vain for capris. Glad you find yours. I also like the pink cashmere sweater. I’ve been thinking about getting a cashmere sweater this year.
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:34 pm
baggy capris are so unflattering IMHO! Like some potato with 2 sticks sticking out. Ick. These RL slim-fit ones are so divine, I’m happy 😀
posted on October 8, 2005 at 2:03 pm
Don’t delete me too! I’ll be real sad. Had been busy recently due to exams preparations and assignments.
I knooooow you, we”ve spoken (okay, written) like 10 times before!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 2:10 pm
the capris in the above looks really tempting, but ive got a flat butt! i usually have prob finding jeans that would flatter my lower body or at least hide my flaws. tried on capris before..sand the result was disastrous! plus my calf area is kinda thick as compared to other girls i know. =/
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:32 pm
Hee, I think capris are so hard to find unless you have the perfect tall/slim model figure, then all of them would fit! I found that even jeans are easier to find that capris.. uck
posted on October 8, 2005 at 2:16 pm
OMG i think you’re onto a winner (kudos to you for even trying on a whole lotta’ pairs, i just gave up telling myself “im short..with skinny legs, no one will make anything that fits”)
i know where i’ll be popping into!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:30 pm
Ooo yeah I’m exactly like you, Ralph Lauren’s the way to go then! The only thign that sucks is that it’s so cheap in the USA, but so $$ in AU 🙁 It was $129 here and less than $50 in the USA!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 2:29 pm
omg – i love those capris!
Will have to go check them out ASAP..
Did they have them in any other colours?
My friend still works there so i’m going to try & see if she can get it for me on staff discount 😉
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:31 pm
I think they’d suit you too! Good for anyone with skinny knees 😛 They have ’em in black or white

Derr I know you! I mean people that I’ve literally never even spoken to before 😛
posted on October 8, 2005 at 2:54 pm
I’ve had the same problem with capris for years, but every now and then I get stubborn and wear them anyway – and I usually end up regretting it mid day and start coming up with every possible excuse to be sitting down so no one will see :O Will def have to check out the pair that worked for you 🙂
I’m also one of those who are probably a “blank, silent, anonymous person.” I’ve enjoyed reading your entires for these past 6-7 years and I’d miss them if they were gone, but you should do what you have to do to feel comfortable <3 I sometimes wonder if I made my entries private I'd be more willing to post in general anymore.
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:23 pm
Haha join the stubborn club, I just like ’em so I’ll wear them.. regardless of how they look on me 😉
Nah wasn’t referring to you, we’ve ‘spoken’ before! It’s just people that i’ve literally never even said hi to before. I never used to like private entries, but now I love ’em.. who knows who could be reading public ones *paranoid*

Promise I won’t!! I’ve spoken to you before 🙂
posted on October 8, 2005 at 4:27 pm
I LOVE those pants. And it looks like they have little cargo pockets on the sides, so I love them even more.
I’ve never heard the term “knickerbocker” before. It makes me laugh 🙂
They should look great with heels. I have a grey pinstripe pair that I match with heels to wear to work a lot.
posted on October 8, 2005 at 11:26 pm
Ya little flat pockets, so they cleverly don’t widen the hips
They’re 3/4 pants, pedal-pushers, knickerbockers, capris.. and I’m sure many other more names!
posted on October 9, 2005 at 12:17 am
I’ve also heard them called floods and clam diggers. Whatever term you use, they sure are cute!
posted on October 8, 2005 at 7:50 pm
hey girl..nice capris there 🙂 Anyway, remember me! I think I shd have given you my other blog addy (given to those in my friends list in LJ). Anyway, started writing back there again

Nice buy! Yeah I hate trying to find pants as most never fit properly. Last year I got a pair of light denim 3/4 jeans at Target with turn up cuffs.. I wouldn’t exact call them capris though.. but yeah they were cheap and the last pair in size 8. They have pink on the cuffs. It’s funny because when my mum saw me wearing them she said ‘Oh, are your jeans too long? Do you want me to take them up for you?’ hahah I said ‘Mum, it’s supposed to be like that!’
posted on October 9, 2005 at 11:05 am
Hehehhehehe your mum sounds so cute! 😛

Wow, you wake up at 7.30 am? That’s very nice, since most of office people here have to be ready in the office around that time.
I’m inactive at my LJ at the moment, but pls don’t delete me off. I enjoy all your entries, Bev!

Ya I wake up 7:30, out of the house by 8:25 and at work by 8:40.. I’m like clockwork, lol.
Will keep you on!

I just need to be a little bit taller to pull off capri pants. I’m too short! When I wear them, they look like full length pants that are just a little bit too short for me lol
I’m gonna pinch that survey thing 😉
I probably need to be taller too, but oh well, haha!
posted on October 9, 2005 at 4:42 am
gosh, i feel like i haven’t been here in so long so i scrolled down and updated myself. lol. congrats on your parents’ anniversary 🙂 yep, chai lattes are awesome. green tea lattes are pretty good too. i totally get how great it is to find a good pair of capris that actually FIT WELL. i have ones from banana i think. it’s from the petite section and still a bit loose. damnit. haha.
posted on October 9, 2005 at 11:08 am
Green tea latte?! I’ve never had one.. now I want to try them 😛

Is knickerbockers the aussie slang for capris?
I actually don’t know.. I just heard the word “knickerbockers” and they sounded so cute so maybe it’s just me that says it, haha!

I love RL cable cashmere sweaters. They’re not cheap though but so soft and warm. Juicy Couture did a pretty good version last year with their signature heart on the back and the scottie terrier on the front. I’ve got the round neck in cream and v neck in pink and absolutely love them. Great for winter. Definitely check them out on ebay.
posted on October 9, 2005 at 10:17 pm
I’m sure they’d last too.. better to get a more $ that feels divine and lasts, rather than a cheaper one that goes out of shape after you wear it twice :X
posted on October 9, 2005 at 3:22 pm
i love your black capris. i’ve got the exact same problem with you cause i’m skinny and the wide cut really don’t flatter at all.. i’m glad you found ur perfect pair.. in the meanwhile, i will have to keep a lookout for my own perfect pair…
Do check out RL if you’re like me too! Alannah hill also had a gorgeous pair that was so nice, but they didn’t have it in my size *cries*

Great clothes! Sydney sounds like a wonderful place to shop. Here I always go out with the intention of buying some new pieces and come back empty-handed. But have fun with your capris! 🙂
And I agree completely with your statement about kids.
