So, I love the fit of the jeans I wore today. They are the Gap Real Straight Jeans and while I love me some skinnies, I feel a bit hip-heavy if I wear skinnies with flats. But, these straight-legged jeans work well both with flats and my hips. Unfortunately, they also have crotch-whiskers:
|February 2011 - just a girl and her whiskers|
Seriously? What is that? I know they’re supposed to make me look like one of the cool kids with a favorite pair of jeans that I’ve worn nearly into whiskery oblivion, but they don’t. They make me look like my pelvis is hungry for some Fancy Feast.
Well, they hadcrotch-whiskers. I've since dyed them:
Much better, yes? No more pelvic yearning for a catnip mouse and a sunny corner. Instead of distracting from the rest of the outfit, they add to it. Today the rest of the outfit consists of a coral tunic (Gap), gray cardigan (also Gap), a multicolored scarf (Nordstrom) and blue velvet flats (v. old, Old Navy).
Have pesky crotch whiskers of your own? Try dying your jeans; I used Rit Navy for mine and just followed the directions on the box. If you want darker color, both Sal, of Already Pretty, and Jessica, of What I Wore, have great tutorials on over-dying.
Happy Friday, Everyone! This weekend I have, what I’m assuming will be a miserably cold birthday party at the zoo tomorrow and, of course, Easter is Sunday.
So, Happy Friday and Happy Easter!
