When you take advantage of the convenience of ordering things online from the comfort of your own home, you're taking a risk. Sometimes the dimensions are completely not what you're looking for. Sometimes the object is actually full of marijuana! Sometimes you just don't like the sweater or whatever, and then it's just taking up space in your house forever because you don't want to leave your house to go to the post office and return the dang thing.
But sometimes, your hilarious mistake can go viral on the Internet. And that makes it slightly worth it, right?
The UK-based retailer Pretty Little Things sells a bunch of trendy clothing items for pretty cheap. Here's a pair of red flared pants they carried earlier this year:
via: TwitterThe pants cost £11 (or just under $15 USD). Pretty good deal, right?
It's easy to see why someone would want to buy a pair of red flare pants. Here's a picture of Kourtney Kardashian rocking a similar pair of trousers:
via: GettySo stylish! And for $15, what's not to like? Well, as it turns out, there's a lot not to like. And we do mean a lot.
Twitter user @psychedelime ordered herself a pair of the red flares. Once they arrived at her door, she quickly noticed something strange.
via: TwitterNamely, that the pants were made for someone with legs that go up to their armpits. Or someone who wears stilts every day.
Obviously, she was a bit put out by the whole affair.

Apparently, there's a whole Sisterhood of the Too-Long Pants.

If you tried to cuff these pants, there'd be more cuff than pant leg.

Someone made the mistake of trying to fix the situation by recommending people just wear heels.
