I’m wearing a vintage silk top I bought from one Sunday of thrifting adventure with my bestfriend and her sister. The plan to wear this kept getting postponed until one Sunday when my boyfriend and I decided to use the Fully-booked gift certificates we received from our lawyer couple friend.
This pair of pants is my version of the skinny jeans. Yes, skinny jeans are sexy but they don’t work for everyone, including me. I have ample hips and thighs. Many think those are signs of obesity, but I say those are signs of being curvy. Skinny jeans doesn’t work for me because it doesn’t give me a good figure. Wearing skinny jeans reminds me of Tuding’s skinless chorizo (delicious, by the way). So this pair is my version of the skinny jeans: high-waist, flared at the bottom, hip-hugging, and in dark wash. The high-waist is one particular feature I love, because I have a long torso and short legs. The high-waist “corrects” my proportions.
I used to be trendy when picking jeans, but that didn’t always work. So, I try to pick jeans that work for me even if the cuts are not trendy. In fact, because not all cuts flatter me, I only have three pairs of jeans, now four when I picked up another light-washed pair from a thrift shop.
I’m wearing vintage silk top, thrifted denim pants, Linea Italia flats, and leather wallet from Mama.
