I've never worn much yellow before, but I'm making an effort this spring. I like it; it's a bit of a colour statement, without being red, which is pretty much the only colour I really can't wear. These jeans are really high-waisted, meaning they are at my natural waist. I got them at Topshop in Prague, kind of an impulse buy because Karl bought shoes and I was kind of jealous. Also, I had totally worn out my other jeans I brought with me and tossed them out in Germany. Anyway, I like them, but it's a commitment to the tummy. Like, it's going to show and be kind of a focal point. Jessica Simpson was wearing jeans almost identical to these in the pictures when everyone decided that she was "fat". I think I've made peace with the gunt, but it's a compromise. I do like the Dazed and Confused vibe.
In this picture I am picking threads off my jeans. I leave work covered in stray threads and fluff. I'm not very meticulous about cleaning it off, and I wonder if people notice, and what they think.
I got these shoes at Aldo at least eight years ago and I thought maybe they were frivolous at the time, but they are comfortable and have served me well though the half-dozen or so times this look has been in. They are getting a little beat up, but only in places you can see when I'm wearing them. The best is great too. The front has a big silver equestrian-style bit buckle and it's so small I can only wear it right up at my waist. I got it at Value Village and told the guy I didn't think fourteen dollars was a reasonable price, so he let me have it for five. But not without adding "You know, at a vintage store it would be like, thirty bucks." And....?
