Like MacGyver, only girlier

Because it was cold and gray and rainy this morning, I wore my favorite black Gap pants to work, with a bright turquoise sweater and cute little black kitten heels. Unfortunately, my favorite pants are a smidge too long for me, and are starting to look, well, worn. Not that it's unexpected; I wear them every week.

What I didn't count on was getting the heel of my cute little shoe caught in my pants cuff, and ripping the hem out.

In the office, this wasn't a problem. I mean, who cares if one leg of my pants was dragging on the floor? But when I was getting ready to go home, I realized that if I left it alone, the bottom of my pants leg was going to drag along the wet ground.

I thought and thought, and came up with this:

Yep, paper clips and binder clips. Eat your heart out, MacGyver!

hmmm...I knew I was keeping a bucketful of binder clips on my desk for something.

It was a really good temporary fix. My cuffs did not drag on the wet ground at all.

Now all I have to do is sew the hem back together.
