“What I wear is a reflection of where I am going and how I am feeling. If I’m in a good mood, it’s got to be cashmere and jeans – just something comfy, soft and warm. When I’m down, I might find something that I haven’t worn for a while that was bought for me – or wear a brooch or a pair of shoes that are like old friends.” ~Kim Cattrall
Okay, let’s talk about jeans. I know that so many of you love skinny jeans because you have amazingly long and slim and perfectly-made for skinny-jeans legs.
But ladies, I gotta be honest with you. I don’t have it like you have it. Wearing a skinny jean doesn’t always work for a short girl with a big butt.
So, you can understand why I literally almost cried a few seasons ago when it became apparent that wearing my beloved bootcut jeans (that are soooo much more flattering to my petite and bootylicious figure than these damn skinny jeans everyone loves so much) was making me look (gasp) like I was one of those “mom-so-IDGAF-about-style” types.
Yeah, I’ll admit it – heck I’m pretty proud of it, actually – I’m a mom times three.
But honestly, I totally GAF about fashion – it’s almost like a hobby of mine. I decorate myself because it’s fun and I enjoy it. I keep up with the whole fashion trend thing for the same reason.
So, as a fashionista, I’ve pretty faithfully avoided those leg-slimming, waist-accentuating, curve-hugging wonders they call bootcut and flared jeans.
Then, the other night, I was watching Modern Family when I noticed that the beautiful and multi-talented Sofia Veragra wearing a very sexy pair of freaking flared jeans.
The episode was on my DVR, so first I checked to find out if it was recent – and it was the most recent episode. I almost peed myself, I was so excited!
Could this really be true? Are flared jeans and my beloved skinny-illusion-making platform wedges back? I might just have a massive fashion-gasm, y’all, for real.
I’ve waited so long for this moment. Could this BE a better day for curvy girls and denim? I think not. 🙂 Well, okay. Maybe if they were free.
