OOTD: Color blind

Last week the JCrew's online factory store was offering an additional 30% off site wide.  I had previously bought the "Minnie" pants from the regular JCrew store but noticed that the factory store had a cut called the "Winnie".  After I had bought the "Minnie" for full price I fell in love with them.  they were the perfect length and they had just enough stretch to them.  So when I saw the "Winnie" on the factory site I was intrigued because they looked the same.  Now, I've heard that factory items are lesser quality than the regular merchandise.  And I will admit that the few items I have ordered from the factory store did have different material content than the regular versions.  As much as I loved the "Minnie" I just couldn't justify spending $90 for a pair of pants. I only bought my first pair because I got a gift card.  Sooooo...all that to say that I have been searching for some red pants and when I saw the additional 30% off code, I kind of had to get them.  I ended up paying $31 for these pants.  Almost a third of the price of the regular ones.  They arrived yesterday and the first thing I did was check the tags of both pairs to see what the material content was.  The "Minnie" was 95% cotton and 5% spandex.  The "Winnie" was also 95% cotton and 5% spandex.  So I think it was a win.

Finally my search for red pants is over.  Or that's what I thought.  After work, I went to Casa de Nana's to go pick up Nathan.  As soon as I walked through the door, J and his mom both asked me if I was wearing orange pants.  Hmmmmm...I don't think so?  Now that I think about it, the color name is "vibrant flame".  It is a bit hard for me to tell the difference between black, navy and really dark purple.  I often have to ask people at stores what color something is if I can't tell.  But I really didn't think I was that color challenged that I would mistake red for orange.  I guess it's a good thing I've got my annual eye checkup this weekend.  Ha.
