My husband begged me never to do it.
But the more I saw it, the more it kinda grew on me.
I decided I did want to do it after all.
My husband caved and decided I was a big girl and could do what I wanted.
He said he trusted me to do it right.
So I did it.
I bought my first pair of "skinny jeans."
How could I resist with a great sale at Target plus a $3 off coupon?!?
I cringed at first when I looked down at my ankles and saw a sight that had been familiar to me in my much younger years. Could I really pull this off? I wasn't so sure at first, so my first outing in them, I wore big furry boots to cover them up. And since I had bought the jeans one size bigger than normal (on purpose - so I could have a little breathing room!), no one was even aware of the bold fashion statement I was sporting.
Yesterday I thought I should try to be a little bolder. So I headed out to the mall in my skinny jeans, a long sweater (to cover my bum, of course!) and a pair of flats. I don't even know why I was hesitant about it. Once I got to the mall, I didn't even remember I was wearing such a "daring" fashion statement. In fact, I blended in so well with everyone else that I didn't even feel that cool after all.
It made me wonder... How many of you have caved to this fashion trend? How many of you bought them when they first came out? Who is still hesitating? Who thinks I'm so last year? I'm dying to know!
