a quick Gap review

I got my white and black pairs of the Gap Cropped Legging Jean (here) a few days ago and have been itching to wear them, especially since it's almost labor day and all, and there are so-called rules about wearing white after it.
Outfit details
Top: F21
Pants: Gap Cropped Legging Jean (here) size 00R
Sandals: Unknown
Necklace: Kendra Scott (here) via Gilt
Bracelets: Movado, John Hardy, Unknown, Fossil

Length: The pants have a 27" inseam and I am 5'3" for reference. The pants are pretty short, but they are supposed to be a cropped jean on someone taller. I think on me these look ankle length. If I was 5'1" these would be the perfect length for a normal pant, but I don't hate that they are ankle length on me. 
Fit: They are pretty darn tight. Reviews said they ran tight, but I've always had problems with the "wasit gap" in Gap pants, so I ordered my normal size anyway. Although there is no waist gap on these pants, the thighs and calves are borderline too tight. Anyone bigger than me would not fit. 
Color: These are true white which is nice. The pants are fairly thick and you cannot see through them. Below you can see my attempt to capture what little see-through occurs on the front pockets, but it is really very slight. I wouldn't risk wearing regular underwear with these though. I stuck to a skin colored thong and I couldn't see it through the pants.
Overall, I am pleased with my order. Especially since I got two pairs of pants for $35. I'm sure in stores the prices are even cheaper! Next time, I would try to order a regular length style but in petite sizing if available.
