Jean genius


Apart from the obvious problem of street-drag (where the hem of your super-flares trails along the pavement, sucking up water until, on a rainy day, it reaches the back of your calf - you freak out and never wear them again) super flares are definitely one of my ten favourite clothing items of all time.
It could be something to do with being small (I'm 5'2, but in magic pavement skimming flares I can wear my most suicidal platforms without anyone noticing, thus adding a sneaky six inches) or it could be the way the wide leg makes your waist look positively waif-like, but they're my fail-safe pants option and I collect them obsessively.

Imagine my glee five minutes ago when these babies arrived in my inbox... meet the Molly Vintage blue piped wide-leg jean, an absolute STEAL at £27.41 (around €30)

By my calculations, that's three boxes of Marlboros, an iced mocha and a copy of InStyle. All of which I can do without ('tis far from iced mochas I was raised)... bargain!

I am going to attempt to fashion a pair of these out of some old sailor pants I picked up a few years back.

Just out of curiosity, where are the pockets located on these?

Those are totally ridiculous. I think I love them, but it's kind of hard to imagine any real person wearing them.

Red- RI Jeans never fit me properly, maybe it's something to do with already having a "nice round bee-hind" of my own!

Lottie - Totally, I wore these all the way through secondary school.

Rebecca- it's amazing the lengths I'll go to to look taller, but short of getting one of those leg lengthening operations, this is a good one.

Amelia- I'm real!

Kimberly Julie said...

i'm super tall (5'10'') so i could probably pull these off, but they are far too daring for me! i applaud your bravery and style!
