Everyone has their body hangups. Mine are my legs. Although, admittedly, they are what I receive most compliments for, you will never see me wearing leggings — apart from the gym. Or skinny jeans — never ever. Let’s say, I have my reasons.
Today, I decided to experiment: I bought myself a pair of skinny jeans — online, i.e. not having had a chance to try them on. To me, this is a gamble. Biggest ever. The result is for you, my readers, to judge!
Why did I decide to give it ago? Bear in mind, I am a bit of a coward: don’t tend to take fashion risks, and pretty conservative as far as my jeans are concerned.
Four Good Reasons
No 1. To Try A New Brand – Belle Grande
I became aware of this amazing tall clothing brand, Bell Grande, from our contacts through social media. I’ve never bought anything from them — only admiring them from a distance. Up to now, that is.
No 2. Sneak Preview/Unveiled Secret
I will be presenting this brand in great detail in the near future, so be warned: this is just a teaser. They are working on their new collection, which, I understand, is going to be fabulous: the perfect tall collection.
No 3. The Price
The jeans are sold on Ebay – here. Let’s face it, for £10 plus postage you can’t go wrong. Even if they don’t fit me well, I can wear them around the house, right! Plus, the seller operates a 14-day return policy (buyer pays return postage).
No 4. Body Confidence Quiz
Last and most important reason: to challenge my body hangups and face the fear of exposing my legs to the public. To decide whether I should stay clear of skinny jeans, or whether I can actually wear them. Let’s call this a body confidence quiz, and see what my audience says. Maybe this will convert women like me to overcome their insecurities and start wearing skinny jeans? Or it may just reaffirm our fears.
So, the spotlight is now on my readers to pronounce the verdict:
Skinny Jeans – For or Against??
