No More Skinny

I'm not swearing off skinny jeans forever, I'm just in the mood for something else. Something rich and volumous. Something that makes me want to go get in my VW bus.

That I don't have.

...yet.

So I've pillaged a couple thrift stores in preparation for colder weather. I let down the hems (I have ridiculously long legs) and dyed them richer colors. I left one pair true blue. Thank god for Rit Dye. Seriously.

I got four pair. Not a one of them over 5 bux.

These denim companies never make jeans I like, but suddenly I find them in a thrift store and I'm like, "BY GOLLY THESE ARE SWELL."

shoes, some Kenneth Cole wooden platform heels from a resale shop.

... although we both know that the heels are just for your entertainment. In real life (not blog world), I'm always in Birkenstocks.

  2. Well, same thing happening here... smooth transition from skinny to wide legs. But my legs are really shorter than yours, and I have the feeling that I look heavier with the hippie pants on... Maybe I just need to get used to it again. But I'll keep my skinnies, they'll probably come back in a few years, and that is how we roll...

  8. I like skinny, but I really want to try a wide leg jean. If I get one that fits nicely I think I would quite like them. I like to see them on other people.

  11. The Cache and Mossino look great on you. I have to say that, while I have a soft spot for skinny, the fits that suit me better are boyfriend or wide leg. But finding the perfect jeans is as difficult as finding the perfect shade of lipstick...BTW, the Birkenstocks line was so funny...

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I really like yours and I'll keep following it.
