little red legs

I'm still unsure of red pants. I love them on others, and on the shelf of my closet, but when I put them on I feel like my already tiny legs suddenly appear like they belong on the body of a 7 year old.  These particular red pants are further aggravating me because I (just) bought them in the same size as my other Old Navy Rockstar cords, but in regular length since they didn't have petites at the store. I didn't realize that there would be that much of a difference in the same size of pants and took the tags off before trying them on. I thought petite meant shorter, not a totally different fit everywhere but they are quite a bit bigger in the waist, length and most annoyingly, the legs and bum. So I'll have to try to shrink them in the wash and hope they look better. Also, these suckers are a magnet for every piece of fluff and hair that I walk within 3 feet of. So all that's to say I'm not really feeling these red pants today.

i'll take 'em if they end up not fitting after washing (if they fit me anyway)...since my red buffalo plaid pants are likely going to Julia if they don't shrink when i wash them.
