I'll be honest here...
It has taken me a long time to get on board with "skinny" jeans. I saw them on some people and said "ooohh...those look cute on her..." and then I saw them on some people and said "no ma'am...did you really look in the mirror before you left the house?!?!?"
I was daring a few different times at the urging of ever-friendly sales staff and tried them on. Every time was a mega-FAIL.
Then during Gap's Give-and-Get weekend I went into Banana Republic. I was trying on some pants/jeans (this was the same weekend I fell in love with these pants, by the way...) and the sales lady who was helping me suggested that I go over and give Gap's new jeans line a try...
Let me tell you how skeptical I was...VERY. I have bought some things at Gap over the years, dresses, cardigans, etc. but I haven't bought a pair of jeans there since pre-college at the very least (read: a long time ago).
Anywho, I walked into Gap and discovered the GREATEST. SKINNY. JEANS. EVER.
These jeans actually fit! It's a miracle! They fit without giving a muffin top! They fit without making me look bigger than I am! I am not a big person at all, but for some reason EVERY PAIR I tried before THIS PAIR made me look like I had weird crazy proportions. Not good. Not good at all. But these jeans are terrific. You should check the new jeans by Gap. Or the revamped jeans. Or whatever. But go there and check them out. Oh yeah, and they don't cost $200...so they have that going for them too.
Plus, people like Slynnro, and Kate and Mrs. Mojito are hosting giveaways related to new Gap jeans.
And yes, S, this is another soliloquy to pants. I can't help it. When I like pants, I really like pants.
