       Notes: I have to admit, a very full leg trousers at this length isn't usually my thing. And while fitting them I had to be reminded of that and be more open to the style. Now that I'm done I absolutely love them. My only complaint: nothing in my closet works with them! I need more cropped length tops and shirts.
