Buying pants really sucks when you're short (I'm 5ft even!) Sometimes I can find a cute pair of petite pants, but they're usually too short to wear with heels, and "normal" length pants are always waaaay too long on me. I usually end up hemming them myself by hand with a needle and thread, but it takes so much time and is just ridiculously irritating to do.
Now there's a quick, stylish solution (cue cheesy infomercial music), Hem Gems. Adorable name, right?! They work like little pins to hold pant legs at your desired length. And they're super cute, to boot! Each pack of Gems contains 8 pins--enough to quickly change the length of one pair of pants. They also come in a few different styles (I'm partial to the pyramid studs).
The best part is that they don't actually alter the pants, so you can adjust them based on whatever footwear you choose for the day.
Here's a quick video showing how they're used:
Super easy, right? And they look incredibly chic. You can get a pack for about $20. Love it!
