People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*
 

The hell with substance! Let's talk clothes.

In a fit of bodaciousness a couple of months ago I bought a pair of skinny jeans. I never got round to wearing them because I couldn't find anything to wear with the bastards, top or bottom, that didn't make my arse look like the back end of a bus.

Nearing desperation, and with Fiance's voice ringing in my ears ('But WHY haven't you worn those expensive new jeans yet?') I submitted a question to Amalah's Advice Smackdown*, not really expecting to get an answer. So I was thrilled to have my question answered a couple of weeks ago, and I have since worn the skinnies, outside. To my Christmas party at work, no less. When I got home from the party I was a little squiffy, and decided to obtain some photographic evidence of my sartorial triumph. Scroll down if you think you can handle some close-up shots of my lower thigh.

*Having bought Philosophy's Purity Made Simple cleanser on her recommendation and LOVING. IT.

Note my bargain £10 shoes, working well with the skinnies:




Coco: 'Not a good angle for you darling - lift your leg so your thigh doesn't look so enormous'










Teeny: 'Nnnrrrgh!'

I love skinny jeans! The trick is tp stop worrying about what to wear with them, I wear everything except for trainers. It helps that I'm tall but then you have ickle feet so you won't look a golfclub in flats. . .

I love my skinny jeans! I'm not skinny (size 12 bottom, 10 top) but I bought really dark navy ones and wear them with little dresses over them and tucked into cute black boots. They rock.

I'm obviously behind the times! It's just a confidence thing - I think it would help if I were taller. But I've worn them once and I'll wear them again!

I must confess to wearing skinny jeans now for about a year. . .but I just love them and have built up a few pairs from the UK before my move, fearing the fashion might be different here (it isn't BTW I am such a dumbass) . Also like Cat I love em over dresses and sweater jumpers and with black boots. Also very cute in summer with little flat pumps. . .I did spend a few quid on a pair of French Connection ones only to realise that they were spray on tight and I cannot breath in them. . .they have hung in the wardrobe since.
