Illustration Friday: Skinny

People either love them or hate them, but I really like the matchstick jean styles that have been popular in the past couple of years. With a pair of ballet flats, you can't help but feel sassy like Ms. Hepburn, or feel like doing an impromptu grande jete in the corridor at work.

Illustration Friday: Skinny

The shoulder pads trend however, needs to stay six feet under. I already look like a linebacker as it is (in a good way, thanks to waterpolo and diving), and do not need any extra in that area.

I love skinny jeans - especially when they'll fit over my not-so-skinny calves. With my calves and your shoulders, we could kick some a**. Trying to keep this a family-friendly blog...

I love the look of the skinny jean - I just wish I could wear them!

Anna said...

Yes, but... skinny legs are really required to make them look good :(

I am so with you on this. I thought I'd never wear tapered jeans again but they're so perfect under tunics and dresses.

Shoulder pads, however, are a *no go*.

Oh my gosh you are so cool, you did waterpolo and diving!? I want to know more. And see pictures! Pictures of you diving. How cool would that be to see?

I couldn't wear skinny jeans in my pre-pregnant body. Now that I'm almost 7 months pregnant, I can only dream of the day when skinny is back in my vocabulary. :-)
