#18. ARE SKINNY JEANS HERE TO STAY??

by admin on February 6, 2011

 

…..esme went to the mall (that’s what we call the little bitty shopping center at del monte center in Monterey) the other day to buy a few books. she couldn’t resist a little peek into BANANA REPUBLIC (for research purposes only of course).  what did she spy but a whole new line of skinny jeans and leggings! 

believe it or not, they have 3 different styles of skinny jeans:  skinny, super skinny and baggy skinny (or words to that effect).  esme had not really intended to try anything on, but thought she’d just grab a few on-sale camisoles and a pair of regular skinny jeans and nip into an available dressing room.  the salewoman assured her that these jeans were much improved over last-season’s, being softer and not inclined to stretch. 

imagine esme’s discomfiture when she was completely unable to squish into her regular size.  now, esme has gained a few lbs. over the holidays, but these jeans were REALLY skinny.  surprised but undaunted, esme decided to come back another day when the jeans go on sale, try a couple of sizes larger, and maybe check out the “baggy skinnies”!  upon returning home, however, a glimmer of fashion longing came over her;  she began to picture herself in a pair of flowing pants with air circulating around her body…..anyway, if you happen to be one of those unusual people who can’t find jeans small enough (esme has actually met a few of these), these new br jeans may be perfect for you!

not as skinny as some,

esme
