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 had crotch-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!
