Plain Jane

_110You know what’s weird?
Outside of work, I don’t wear jeans often.
I think I have exactly 1 style post to date of me in jeans.
2 if you include me wearing Brandon’s jeans, which I love but every boyfriend since has hated.

Finding jeans, skinny jeans, has always been a problem for me.
I am specifically hindered by my waist-ass ratio.
My proportion relegates me to either jeans that fit well from my ass down, but look like a weight loss commercial from the hip up, or the ones that fit perfectly around my waist but then look like I’m wearing harem pants.

Very rarely do I come across (affordable) exceptions to these scenarios so I just stopped buying jeans all together.
It just wasn’t worth the changing room stress.
I fucking HATE the changing room process.

Where you  grab like 3 different sizes of the same item and none of them fit right.
Multiply that across 4 different stores and all that does is make me hungry and angry.
And if I get a Boston parking ticket after wasting all that time, forGET about it.

But recently I went shopping with my girlfriend, who is proportioned like me, and she pointed out a brand of jeans that she loved .
Swore up and down that they fit her curves perfectly.
Being that we have almost mirrored body types (except I have bigger chi chis than her but that’s neither here nor there), I picked up a couple.

Ok, I bought 4 pairs.
This is one of them.

  1. I used to be the worst shopper at shopping for jeans as well, I had the dilemma where it fit my tights and hips but would be so loose in my waist. I love the jeans color on you Dana. Is it starting to get cold in Boston?

  2. Always loved a great pair of jeans, though I prefer trousers. To me, they’re much more comfortable and make excellent outfits! But I must say… You look amazing! I love how you can look so simple and yet so sophisticated. And Those boots are perfecttttt!! 😍😍

  3. GIRLLLLLLL I have the same problem once it fits my ass I could fit another half of me into the waist band! So frustrating because it means I always end up having to spend a small fortune for the right fit. Definitely going to check these out stat!

  4. You’re so right about sizing – unless you have no hip, waist or bum, trousers are a nightmare (being 5’10, length used to be a nightmare, too, but fortunately they do special freak-lengths now).
    Love the look: outside work or my bed you’ll hardly ever see me in anything else 😉

    1. Hahah!
      ‘freak-lengths’ is cracking me up!
      And see, before this new role, back when I could wear jeans to work. I didn’t care how ill fitting there were because it’s work. I’m not trying to impress nobody.
      But outside work – I wanted shit that fit and when it comes to jeans that fit, I feel like i’ve on a damn famine!

  5. It’s so nice to find a pair of pants that fit so well, I’m happy that you found them. I’m on a bit of a buying hiatus because I’ve put on a few pounds and since I hit this God awful benchmark it’s not really coming off.
    Love the white T and jeans look, heels are cute too.

  6. Absolutely love your hair! <333 Also, I don't think you're alone in the finding clothes that fit department. Hehe. I know I haven't had much success in finding pants that fit, because I have a small waist and large thighs, so there's always a gap in the back. It f*cking suuuuucks. Haha. So frustrating. This is why I'm so stoked that high waisted shorts and jeans are coming back into style, because those actually fit my body type!

  7. Nice jeans! Your outfits and styling have really helped me. I linked you in my latest post because you really have been inspiring me. I look at my closet differently and actually am starting to see outfits that would work, all because I (ME) I am making it work, not the other way around. Thank u.
