But skinny jeans imply a certain something...do I really need to elaborate here? I believed that because of my larger legs, skinny jeans were off limits. However, the more and more interested I became in fashion, the more I realized that skinny jeans aren't just allowed on bigger girls...but they are actually incredibly flattering. So one day I decided to try on a pair of skinny jeans...and what do you know? Not only did I like them - oh no - I LOVED them. And so my love affair with finding the perfect pair of skinnies began.
To date, I have only been able to find one pair of skinny jeans that I actually like. So naturally I bought multiple pairs. However, they still leave a little something to be desired. Since then, I have searched with no luck. So with this post, I am really hoping that maybe someone out there in the blogosphere can help me.
Here's the set of problems I am having:
1.) I am SHORT. 5'3" to be exact...so that is a problem with finding any pair of pants.
2.) I have thick thighs/legs, but small ankles..so the skinnies that fit me in the hips/thighs are too big around the ankle, making them look like boot-cut jeans.
3.) Maybe I am just picky, but I NEED a dark wash. Darker = Better.
Tonight I ordered these (because Old Navy is having a 30% off everything sale and because I really have my hopes up):
They offer a short length with a 30" inseam, but I have a feeling these will still be a little long...and I cannot really afford to have them tailored. But we shall see. I will keep you updated.
So alas, my dear readers, if you have ANY information on how I can find the perfect pair of skinny jeans, by all means, please help!
