Wouldn't you know that the gals at EveryBody, EveryWear would select colored jeans during a month I'm doing browns on Rags? I considered not participating at all since I did the red ones and the yellow ones in July. And then, I bucked up and muddled on through...
These brown jeans are by Compagnie Internationale Express and the gold toned vest by Reba. The white jacket reminds me of something a person in a Salvation Army band might wear--I love the stand-up collar. The booties are by Soft. (all thrifted)
I've searched for green jeans all summer and recently snagged a pair at Savers Labor Day holiday sale. Imagine by surprise when I got them home and realized that they were honest-to-goodness skinnies. The distance from my belly-button to the top of the waist band is a full 5 inches. Yikes! I had intended to save these for my "green" month in October, but decided to snap photos on Sunday. DH was terribly excited to shoot the photos...and tells me that they are now his favorite pair of jeans. I agreed to wear them around the house and then had to make an evening dash to the grocery for a gallon of milk. It was amazing to guage the reactions of my fellow shoppers and the help. My cashier, who is usually so friendly, was decidely aloof, while the sacker was suddenly very friendly.
Jeans by Wet Seal, black tee by Gap, silver metallic belt, black flats by Naturalizer (all thrifted)
Still, I can't help thinking that when women my age begin to wear bright green skinnies, the day of both skinnies and bright jeans must be numbered.
While these jeans were loads of fun to wear, they shall remain "at home" wear. I'm not willing to reveal a plumber's crack or the thong underwear that used to jut out of backside of such jeans and drive returning male students bonkers with distraction in class. You'll have to imagine the imaginary tattoo on my tail bone.
