BREAKING NEWS: I BOUGHT A NEW PAIR OF JEANS!!!
Yes, this is me, sporting my brand new pair of boyfriend jeans. They’re slouchy, comfy, ever-so-slightly distressed, and I love them.
And yes, this is newsworthy. First, because I hardly ever buy a new pair of jeans (or trousers) and second, because I actually found a pair of jeans I could squeeze my big bum in. That happens once in a blue moon. Which probably explains why I hardly ever buy jeans (or trousers)…
Buying jeans is right up there with having a root canal as far as unpleasant experiences go, at least for me. I mean, there I am, in that tiny dressing room, with an armful of jeans (or trousers or any sort), none of which fit. It’s bound to have an effect on a girl’s self-esteem: I can’t even count the times I’ve left empty-handed and totally defeated, believing I must be some sort of a deformed mutant.
And then I always get angry and decide that there’s nothing wrong with me; it’s the jeans that are faulty. After all, most of them seem to be designed for people with no hips and legs twice as long as mine…
What usually happens is I can barely fit one leg in, and even then the damn jeans won’t go past my knees (and yes, I’ve tried bigger sizes…). And then I have to spend the next ten minutes trying to pull the said leg out, without destroying the jeans in the process. And even if I somehow manage to get both legs and my sizable behind into the damn contraption, the waistline could easily fit 3 of me…
So, whenever I find a pair of jeans (or trousers of any sort) that fit me, I usually buy them in every colour I can find and then wear them to bits.
And now you understand why this is newsworthy: I found a pair of jeans that fit me comfortably. OK, fine, I’m wearing a belt, so maybe the jeans could be just a little bit narrower at the waistline (but one size smaller would be way too tight around the thighs and hips), but you can’t have it all.
