Skinny Jeans Part 2

I'm not sure what it is about these jeans.  I always thought skinny jeans were what people kept in their closet for when they got skinny again and could fit back into them.  But then I learned it's those jeans that are super close fitting, making everyone look like they have sticks for legs.

I was sure those jeans were not for me because a) I do not have sticks for legs.  My legs are nicely developed.  b)  my thighs are muscular and therefore nothing "skinny" or "straight: fits me.  and c) I never liked them.  Until I met Ann Taylor's skinny jeans.  You may have read my post about fitting into a 0, which I think is fully worth a good guffaw because a size cannot be 0 because 0 is nothing.  I was not naked when I had these on.

I wore them last week and felt all Audrey Hepburn in them.  They are truly the best thing I have ever put on my body.  They are as comfortable as leggings, but they do not look like leggings.  They are jeans with a decent wash on them, not that erased butt and thigh look like all jeans seem to have, these days.  They do not have any holes.  And because they are a slightly darker wash than I usually wear, I can wear them and sort of look put together, not like it's casual Friday.


I wore them again yesterday and fell in love all over again.  And I get compliments on them.  Unless your legs are a mile long and you're really fit, no one ever compliments jeans.  I swear I may put these on and never take them off again.

See how they are a little scrunched at the ankle? I had planned to hem them but I kind of like it.  And yesterday, thekiller over at http://imgonnakillhim.com/ tweeted this:  I'm wearing a pair of skinny pants with sneakers. I look like a Jonas Sister.  I laughed a lot.  I wasn't wearing the sneakers, so maybe that's why I wasn't feeling to Jonasy.  But I certainly see enough teenagers running around this building wearing skinny jeans and sneakers and I would agree that they must think they are permanently auditioning to be in a Jonas video.
  
I will swear on my life that these are not jeggings, though this picture might make you think slightly otherwise.  These are magical pants that don't even show panty lines.  I'm telling you, get me one in every color.   It's a very rare day that I am thrilled to pieces over a pair of jeans.

  2. Magical Pants?!? I need to get some of those! (But no amount of magic (or lip) is going to make me a size 0. :)
