It took me a long time to get on board the skinny jean train, but once I found a pair that I liked, I was hooked!
MY BUTT AND THIGHS LOOKED SO SKINNY! AND MY CALVES…I DIDN’T KNOW I COULD EVEN LIKE THEM, BUT THEY WERE HOT, TOO!
As any normal vain woman would do, I ran right out to buy more in different colors. I thought that the same designer and line would be an exact replica of the jeans I owned and loved.
I was wrong.
I tried on a pair in black denim. They were the same size as the ones I’d owned and wow, they were REALLY tight. So tight, they’d instantly left impressions in my skin and let’s not even talk about the muffin top. (That sucker was like the oversized kind from Costco…BE TEE DUBS – WHY ARE THEY SO DAMN ADDICTING?!?!?!)
So, I sucked it up (pun intended) and tried them in the next size up. They zipped, so I was like “yay – they fit.” I wore them once and by the time I realized I had to yank them off even my ankles, I knew I was fooling myself.
I’ve since tried a number of different brands, lines, and sizes. And I’ve learned that skinny jeans are basically the devil. You’ll find a gorgeous pair that fit and make your donkey booty look amazeballs, but then may never find the same look and fit again.
Moral of the story: find skinnies that you like & buy 7,526 pairs.
