I had baggy Levis in every shade (purple, gold, red, green)--you name it, I had it and wore it proudly with a tight, tight ballerina top (with $54.11’s to match--now $ 64.95 plus applicable NY sales tax)! As you can imagine, I’m trying to bury those memories, so it is with much reluctance, and a healthy dose of chagrin, that I write about this trend.
It is little wonder that mostly celebs are rocking this look. Have you seen anyone in real life wear these? Granted, I do spend an average of, oh let’s just say, 12 to 13 hours a day in an ivory tower, with lots of business casual-clad folks (myself included) scurrying to and fro…but still! I do go outside on occasion, or to the lobby to pick up dinner delivery! Cue sad song…are you feeling sorry for me yet? I realize that I’m not saying much about colored jeans, but that’s intentional! Anyway, here it goes…Nah, seriously, apparently, according to Women’s Wear Daily, Pucci and Seven for Mankind are partnering to make colored jeans!
It looks like purple is the way to go...Fergie does high-waisted, skinny, AND colored jeans-- with wedges-- while Jessica Alba strolls in a skinny-leg with flats.
If they’re good enough for Pucci, they’re good enough for me. I may have to get a pair! Though in all likelihood, I will have to get a pair from Target to test them out. They have a good selection for only $22.99.
P.S. - My sister-in-law, who speaks her mind (g*d knows she does!), told me today that my blog was, “eh, boring”. Can you believe the nerve? This after countless requests for her input. So, after telling me (a few more times) that the blog was dull, she sends me a link for hot new Oxfords, to which I said, “Oh, you mean Spectators…thanks, but The Fashion Bomb and The B-Life have already covered that!" I tell ‘ya...
