someone call the "wahhhmbulance"

because I've got some first-world problems.

I am in the 4% of people who cannot under any circumstance pull off skinny jeans.

I defy you to find a pair of skinny jeans that does not make me look bizarrely proportioned. Old Navy? Gap? American Eagle? Banana Republic? Garage? Aeropostale? H&M? Forever 21 (I am disappointingly far from being 21)? Yes, I have tried them all.

When you factor in my unwillingness to pay more than ohhhh.....30$, and the fact that I typically take a long/tall inseam, and there are not many options left.

I have one pair of straight leg that works, so I will have to be satisfied with that.

Anyhoo, I realized that I need more skinny jeans for winter, as this will be the year that I actually buy boots instead of just saying "THIS is the year that I will buy boots!" and skinny jeans tuck easily into boots.

I'm also still on the lookout for crops. Again, please remember that I'm mad cheap and get anxiety spending money (it took me 4 days to decide whether or not to buy some nail polish. This included 'visiting' it twice during my lunch hour).

  1. I like the sounds of your root beer pulled pork recipe you posted on my blog!

    If it makes you feel better, I have issues with skinny jeans too. I find straight leg jeans work better for my monster calves. Skinny jeans seem to always bunch around my knees, but be tight around the calves. I'm not really willing to go the "jegging" route.
