As I mentioned in my last "Upscaled Thrifted" post, I love finding the best brands at a bargain price. Thrift Stores = Bargain! However, thrift stores don't necessarily mean the best fit. Since I'm quite short, ahem, 5' 0" I often need to hem my slacks.
I found these Banana Republic dress slacks at Goodwill for $3.69 and knew they would be a wonderful addition to my young professional work wardrobe with only miner work from me.

I decided not to add a cuff to the bottom of the slacks once they were completed because I think it makes short girls look shorter. Instead I decided to hem them very close to the edge of the slacks, making them less formal but more versatile in my opinion.
