I rarely wear pants…EVER. Unconvinced? Feel free to browse my Chictopia and you’ll find proof. I only wore pants for about less than ten times in my posts for the past year and a half and I remember wearing denim only thrice until this entry. If ever I do wear, I pick slim fit/ skinny jeans since I think they look nice when paired with heels.
Suffice to say, I do not have skinny bony legs which I can credit to genetics and ballet dancing which resulted to an underdeveloped upper body and overdeveloped legs. So naturally, I rarely take the denim jeans route since I find, trousers and pants to be quite unflattering especially for my body type. But the pair I got to wear this day was ultra-comfy and made me feel glam I was beyond thrilled to discover I can get to wear it yet again!
As Carrie Bradshaw said in one of the SATC episodes, “There they were, her Skinny jeans. The jeans every women keeps in the vain hope that someday, she’ll fit into them again!” Seriously! I bought these jeans back then… when I couldn’t find the right pair for me! Then, like magic, I stumbled upon this pair of jeans in the Mango Sale circa 2006—- it was 70% off. I got it and for about a three months after purchase, we were inseparable.
I then forgot about this since then! However, last Friday, while browsing through my closet and wanting to take a break from the dresses and skirts I am so accustomed to wearing as a daily uniform, I went ahead, took the risk and put them on. It was like a Makeover revelation moment and while they may look like leggings, they are really black denim jeans. Paired it with an all black look- an “ALL MEN ARE DANGEROUS” statement tanktop from Zara bought 3-4 years ago and a leather studded vest acquired recently at a bazaar!
Pardon the very long story explaining the jeans. I was just quite proud of being able to fit into them again!
Watched “LEGION” that night then headed home as I was majorly tired!
