Thanks to the tenacity of writer and friend Lisa Marsh, whotried on 73 and 1/2 pairs (that’s right!) to find the perfect pair of jeans for her recent Good Housekeeping magazine article, and GH’s fashion director Jasmine Chang, who styled the four of us “real life” models, I got to parade my short stuff on national morning television wearing a pair of Talbots jeans.

Au contraire, mon frere, you gasp? Mais non! The petite denim pants I rocked on the show were pretty, powerful and prestigious. Read: they looked upscale and dressy enough that I could see myself buying a pair of these dark “Heritage” label Talbots for any client meeting.

Since a buyout deal last May, Talbots has been turning out a new look for its ladies, trying to claim a new, hipper demographic. Hey! No more mom jeans now, Talbots is shooting for the cool kids in school who want the latest denim hotness. And guess what? I didn’t even have to hem them!
