The New Skinny Jeans... Hm...
Now, I'm all for skinny jeans. I mean, I wear them everyday, I probably own more skinny jeans than underwear. I love Nicole Richie in them (right), and she inspired me the most to try something new. So when I heard that wide legged jeans were the new skinnies, I was a bit apprehensive. I mean, I've seen wide legged jeans on the runway and on celebrities, and don't get me wrong, they look fabulous. But, I'm a little frightened to try them. I have my daily routine already set; shirt, ballet flats, skinny jeans, and sometimes if I'm feeling wild, I'll throw in a headband. Why change now? Or maybe this is just my excuse, to cover my fear of failing--that is, looking bad in the latest trend. Can I possibly build up the confidence, courage and ambition to try this new look? Because, the truth is, you NEED to be confident courageous and ambitious to pull off these wideys!
Left: My last year's Hanukkah wish: 7 For All Mankind high-rise
skinny jeans. I never got them, but I'm still not ready to give up
on this trend. Right: The new trend, wide legged. These are the
latest 7 For All Mankind jeans, that all the celebrities are sporting.
I'm still apprehensive though...
