Pixie vs. Gigi vs. Target

I struggle every morning to find something to wear to work. I'm over all of my dresses and my go-to ankle pants. While browsing on Pinterest, I noticed that I was drawn to all of these outfits with tight black pants - not black jeans, not leggings, but pants. I immediately went to J.Crew to begin my search of these pants and came across a pair of pants that they dubbed "Pixie pants." Then I immediately had a heart attack because I knew I could never spend $98 on a pair of pants that I wasn't even sure I would wear in reality.
Quickly went to the J.Crew Factory website, found a similar pair called "Gigi Five-Pocket Pant" and they were still pretty pricey at $82.50.
And then Tar-jay saved the day. After a quick search on their website, I came across a similar pair for $27.99! Holler! I know, I know, the quality won't even begin to compare, but I scooped that pair up at Target last week and wore them to work last Friday and I must say, I've liked what I have been seeing so far! They are so comfortable and can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with a pair of riding boots.
Bonus - they aren't see through if your shirt doesn't cover your bum!
The Target ones do look pretty heinous in the picture, but I promise they are so much cuter and better fitting in real life!

  2. I've been wanting to get a pair of the Pixie pants and didn't even know the factory store had a similar option. Target pants never seem to fit me right unfortunately. I'm a big fan of those black pants though!

  3. I love the J. Crew "Minnie" pants - the outlet has a knock off called the "Winnie." They may be a little bit pricy but I have had mine for 3 years and they have held together so well. I wear them almost every day with flats, boots, blouses, you name it!!

  4. I saw those at Target the other day and should have tried them on. I'm guilty of spending too much on the J. Crew ones but I LOVE them.

  5. Cute! JCrew kills me with their high prices since I LOVE them soo much. At least they have good sales, sometimes.. PS - Saw Cameron at the gym again yesterday haha.

  6. I wish J Crew would come down on their prices. I love their stuff, but it is so pricey. I splurge every once in a while and it's usually worth it!

  7. I think I will be making a target pitstop asap to scoop a pair! I love them, but a hefty pricetag for me isn't justifiable! (is that a word..?)

  8. Also try Gap's very skinny premium pant. I LOVE them and they are a little more reasonable than the Crew. Like $50ish?

  10. Gap's straight leg pants are the best. I have 3 pairs and they run true to size. You can get them for $35 a pair when they do their 30% off deals (like every other week)!

  12. I have a different version of the pixie pant's from jcrew factory from last year, and they are like scuba pants that suck everything in. They are great, but I wouldn't wear them to the office - a little too form fitting for work for me! But I agree with you, I love a black pant!

  13. I love my black stretch pants. I always feel inappropriate wearing leggings to work, so these are a perfect solution. Glad you got the Target pair, too. You never know how long these things will be in style, so no need to spend a fortune!

  15. I have a pair of Marisa pants that I got on a great sale from Loft last year that look just like that! I'm obsessed with them - they're great quality! Keep a lookout for a good sale there (I remember they were around 50% off) - I bet you'd love them too!
