So I didn't know that aloharag carries Dries until luckyme posted the pants she purchased (thanks lucky!). I ended up getting the same pants but in the khaki green. I'm nervous about the sizing ... I'm quite a bit shorter than this model, and hopefully aloharag's measurements are accurate (I surprisingly don't own any Dries pants, only skirts). What size did you get, lucky? I ordered the 36.

I also got a very basic wool tee from aloharag and these suede heels from Gimme Shoes (the lower heel version, 3.5" is really my limit). They are gorgeous.

Btw, how cute is this outfit? This is so me. I would love to have this top, but alas, already spent too much on the pants and shoes ...

tourist, so FAB.... i did the same and got the pant in a 36. they are running quite large but are meant to be slouchy so i guess it depends on where you want to wear them, waist or hip. i am usually a 38 but have also worn a 40 and the 36's fit me w/o being too slouchy. length can be adjusted by the buckles but that model is tall. see evagentry for a shorter model in them. i think the heel you picked up will add to the appeal, how could it not, both are such beauty.

^ thanks for the info! I'm between a 36 and 38 lately, so hopefully the 36 won't be super slouchy. The waist measurement on the 34 just seems way too small, so I didn't want to chance that, but now I'm not sure .... Have you worn them yet lucky? If yes, what did you pair them with?

his shoes are really lovely this season. but goodness, his shoe prices have gone up. I can't wait to see what monamoore's buy is like.

^ they look fantastic on you!!! do you mind doing measurements at the waist and hip for me? i'm still debating sizes ... i would like them to fit how they fit on you, more or less. how high do they sit on you, rise wise?

tourist10 and luckyme - that is a fabulous pant. i've been eyeing this, but i don't think i have the gusto to pull it off. they look great on you, luckyme.

tourist10 - i saw those shoes too. how do they run? true to size? i was debating between those and the lovely oxfords (both of which are super-spensy!)

^ I haven't received them yet, but don't be scared of the pants! The buckles are different, but I think the overall effect is like a pair of jodhpurs. Of course they are great with heels, but I also plan to wear them very casually, with flats and a casual top (Dries knot top comes to mind) for my weekend, mommy-duty wear! As for the heels, they are true to size and very comfy. Definitely agree with you on the price ...

tourist10 - the pants in post #817 - http://www.antonioli.eu has them - I saw them there yesterday...along with some lovely shoes.

I am really loving the ankle boots with the belt on the front this season.. not badly priced either.
