The Case of the Missing Butt-Enhancing Yoga Pants

Dear Friends,

Yesterday my BFF convinced me to join her along with her elementary-school teacher pals in a Zumba class. Did I mention that her elementary school teacher pals are at my elementary school?

So I ended up shaking my groove thang in front of my brother's best friend and college roommate's mom?

Yeah. For those of you not in the know, Zumba is a cross between cardio dancing and Tae-Bo (remember Billy Blanks?), in my opinion. It was a fun class and I promised I'll be attending the whole 10 week class.
But in other news, my favorite yoga pants are missing.

I, of course, had no idea they were missing because these days I can usually be spotted wearing either leggings or my men's Navy sweatpants. The color and the branch of the U.S. Military.

An hour before Zumba was supposed to start, I started looking for the pants. Closet, dresser, laundry.... no pants.

Bedrooms, living room, coat closet... no pants.

It's quite scary. I mean, these pants and I have history. They were purchased in 2004 at Target. And coincidentally, when I met one of my BFFs 2 years later at college - she had the exact same pair.
I would like to clarify that I do not often rock a feather-and-sparkle headdress with Farrah Fawcett curls - this picture was taken at a special occasion. A pep rally slash lock-in. Very confusing.

Anyway. I have thrown pretty much my entire wardrobe on the floor looking for these pants.
I'd show you a pic of my whole room but I am seriously embarrassed. Where did all this stuff come from?

I think this calls for a trip to Goodwill or a blog sale. Or a trash can.

Either way, today I mourn my favorite yoga pants. Thick spandex, nice big foldover waistband, a long length for my slightly-longer-than-average legs.

Missing: Butt-Enhancing Yoga Pants. If seen, please contact @ClassyFabSarah.

And to make me feel better, tell me I'm not the only one who misplaces everything about once a month. Cause it's seriously annoying!

I would very much like spanx to come up with a line of THICK leggings and yoga pants!

miss mal said...

I LOVE my yoga pants too, I completely understand your sadness!!!

The ones I love I found online at Victoria's Secret's website. They come in long or cropped, and you can pick your inseam length individually (30" - 36") for your long legs. Plus they come in really cute color pairs. Go to their website and search #253-140. I SWEAR by them!!

Rae said...

I also LOVE the Victoria's Secret yoga pants. They are awesome and have the foldover top. Check 'em out!

Stephanie said...

This is very sad...I love love love my yoga pants...and wear them ALL the time. I also got mine from vickis!!

Lauren @ Dreams Take Flight said...

That is so sad! I hope you find them! (I 'misplace' things all the time, only to find them where I was looking the whole time.)

The Shabby Princess said...

I lose things on a very regular basis. Seriously.

Last week it was a necklace that after 4 hours of looking for, my husband found in 20 minutes. Of course.

Last night, my favorite pair of tights. Searched for a good hour and was too tired to keep looking--then, they just appeared.

It's a problem I have.

On that note, I'm sure your yoga pants WILL turn up!

Jennifer said...

I hate when that happens! I'm currently missing one of my favorite tank tops and can't find it ANYWHERE. Also, I think I might have those same exact yoga pants haha!

Champagne Mom said...

I think I have the same pants! LOVE them!! Hopefully you can find a decent replacement. I haven't looked at Target's options recently but passing by the activewear department -on the way to baby itmes- everything looks super comfy, soft and in really pretty colors. Goodluck!

Gwen said...

I hate when I loose clothes. UGH!!! Sending clothes finding vibes your way!!! Good luck girly!! XOXO

Confessions Of A Domestic Goddess said...

I hate when that happens. In college I had this pair of FILA gym pants that I found at costco. They were a lovely grey and were the perfect fit, color and length. I was devastated when they disappeared. The same year I also lost 2 Juicy Couture track suits....I think one of my roommates was a thief...

I hope you find them!


Brown Girl said...

This story boggles me? How did they go missing? Maybe the dryer ate them? Or did you leave them at someone's house? I never lose stuff...or nothing of that kind of value. Butt enhancing yoga pants should be taken very good care of. Shame on you! ;)

etta said...

When is the last time you saw these butt-enhancing yoga pants? Before you moved home from college? Did one of your roomies envy your pants? Or accidentally pack them in her stuff?

the girl in the red shoes said...

Bummer on the pants! I totally know that feeling! I have a pair of Target ones that I love, but also found some at Old Navy.

Becky said...

I was going to say Target has the best yoga/exercise pants! I understand the's hard to find that ONE pair of perfect pants that aren't too tight or too loose. Hopefully they will turn up! In the meantime I am sure everyone will still let you get your zumba on with them :P

i hate to lose my favorite article of clothing!! hope you find thm!!

Calling_Rhonda said...

I know how frustrating that can be. It always seems the one piece of clothing that I am looking for is the one who has seemed to hide. I've been missing an asic (yes one) for a month now!
I feel your pain, I say...make a trip to Tarjay ASAP!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

I hate it when that happens! Most mornings I spend racking my brain and thumbing through my closet trying to find something to wear, but when I know what I want to wear I always have a hard time finding it. Sheesh. I do hope you find them soon! I need a good pair of yoga pants since mine are about ready for the trash can.

Cuddleslut said...

I had two pairs of the same black foldover waistband yoga pants from Old Navy and they had been missing for several months. Both pairs! But they turned up recently at the same time. Mysterious.

I hope you find yours.

sarah said...

Wait. There might be hope for you. I had this bra that was ab fab. Then one day it went missing. I searched everywhere and couldn't find it (this was 1.5 years ago). Then LAST WEEKEND I was vacuuming under my chest of drawers and it gets pulled out! Miracle of miracles.

MLC84 said...

I know how u feel when you lose that perfect item of clothing. It just disappears into thin air, almost like they grew legs and just walked away :-) Victoria's Secret online has great yoga pants, thick spandex and fold over waistband and my butt always looks great in them. One of my BFFs said this while wearing the pants "I wish I cute butt like yours, it's perfect, not too big and not too small." My reply, "Rach, it's the pants."

liane said...

I would have a meltdown if I lost my favourite pair of yoga pants. A serious meltdown.
And only this morning I spent the better part of 15 minutes trying to find a sweater that I had just washed last week from the pile of clean clothes that have taken over one corner of my bedroom.

I think I need to do a clothing clean sweep this weekend, I might find my sweater then!

You do your laundry at home, right? Because the only time I've mysteriously lost an article of clothing was when someone stole it out of the dryer when I was living at the dorms. One of my male classmates also confessed to stealing a girl's (clean) thong before, just because it was there. Gross huh??!

Anonymous said...

Ooohh I feel your pain.

BUT...if they're gone forever (and I'm saying a little prayer for you that they're not!) you should check out the Lucy Hatha yoga pant. They're a bit of a splurge, but they are the only ones I wear now! A-MAZ-ING. They hide my mini saddlebags quite nicely. lol.

Oh God I need to go to bed. I'm losing it....talking about saddlebags?!?!

Andhari said...

I only have three pair of yoga pants in different colors and the black one is my favorite. I'll be annoyed too if it's gone because I misplace it.

Ps. You look super cute in the whole farah fawcett attire :D

Pss. I wanna try Zumba too. Sounds fun!

Lucky in Love said...

Hope you find your pants my friend! I can imagine it is pretty frustrating. Losing things totally sucks!

20 Times A Lady said...

Ohhh goodness... please tell me they were a Mossimo pair? I have the exact same ones and I swear by them!

Anonymous said...

Just came across your blog and I love it already. I will def be coming back to read more, and I hope you find those pants... Ugh that is the worst.
