Did I mention that I got some new jeans?
I live in my blue jeans, wear them every day. It’s the joy of working in a casual office. I like being able to wear jeans to work so much that I occassionally squeal with glee about it.
The problem was, though, that I’m the kind of short who’s between “petite” and “average”. If I got petite jeans, they were the right length at the waist, but too short in the legs. If I got average jeans, they were great at the legs, but I pulled them up to my bra and walked around like Urkel.
Did I do that?
Finally, there’s a solution at Lane Bryant (it’s where chubby girls shop). They have low-rise bootcut stretch jeans. The low rise part means it hits my waist exactly, the bootcut makes ’em sexy. And the fit? Fantastic, once I bought the right size. Apparently when one finds jeans that fit in the right places, she needs them a size smaller than her Urkel jeans.
The new jeans are so comfortable that I actually stayed in them until bedtime last night – which was somewhere between 10 and 11pm. That’s like 15 hours in these pants, which is virtually unheard of for me. Usually it’s Pajama Time by about 7pm.
I can’t tell you how nice it is to have jeans that actually fit. And because I got them on sale, I picked up 4 pair for less than what I’d normally pay for 2. Sweet! (I also love a good deal. This is also why I stock up on cute underwear when they’re buy 3, get 3 free.)
