The Long & Wide Of It All


Despite loving my skinny jeans, at this time of the year after the excess of Christmas, the word skinny scares me. My own skinny jeans barely fit me at the moment-(case in point) when I sit down, they dig into my stomach. I know you have to suffer for fashion, but really? That is just not appealing!

However, what is appealing, I ask myself? The Givenchy Pre-Fall collection, I tell myself. Now, that is certainly attractive! Mr. Tisci, please sir, can I have some more? Wide legged trousers, skirts of great lengths, comfortable materials, dark and romantic colours. My curves would favour that pair of wide legged trousers far more, than my Topshop skinnies.

Do you like these looks? And please tell me that I was not the only glutton over the Christmas period?

Same here! My jeans are too tight now. I love the wide-legged look, sadly it is difficult for me to pull. I'm too short.
