i was gifted the most beautiful jeans the other day
i am not talking about any kind of jeans…
these are high end, hand made, fancy pants
they are soft to the touch, super skinny and super sexy.
these jeans were the same size i have been wearing since the fall.
so off went my pants and out came these jeans…i could not wait to try them on!!!
getting my first leg through proved to be…ummm…interesting.
i mean i know these are “super skinny” but c’mon!!
finally i got both legs in and tried pulling them up.
tried is the operative word.
i was bouncing all around the room, cursing the hips my mother gave me.
of course the puppy thought this was a new game so every time i was able to inch the jeans up…she would try to pull them down.
what a good dog lol
finally about 20 hours later…the jeans were on.
my whole body broke out in a sweat and i was outta breath.
but dammit they were up and buttoned.
and then the following conversation ensued.
gifter – do they fit?
me – umm yes!!!
gifter – do you want to go get a bigger size?
me – NO!!!
gifter – are you sure?
me – no
gifter – k, lets go.
i mean they fit. they were tight…but isn’t that the look?
so i couldn’t breathe…big deal.
it’s better to look good than feel good no?
ugh. i gotta say…i was a little devastated.
how could it be that a size i could fit comfortably in…was not comfortable?
i get it…that every make is different…
that just because you are a certain size at one store doesn’t mean that you will be that size elsewhere…i get it.
but it still really bothered me.
So off we went to exchange
i went up one size…and they were huge!!!
unless of course you are the type of girl who doesn’t mind having your whole ass hang out when you sit down.
the sales lady convinced me to try the ones i tried on at home again
so she could see how they looked on me.
she grabbed the same size from the rack and off i went.
they slipped on…and were loose.
so, she pulled out the jeans that were originally purchased and checked the tag…
they were two sizes smaller than what i wear!!!!!
they were the wrong size.
so…i went from being deflated to elated
cause my “normal” size was too big…
and i actually went down one size…
i really am too sexy for my jeans!
i must celebrate by buying new shoes!! lol
