I just returned from my dream mecca, Madewell, where I tried on the most darling pair of high-waist, wide-leg jeans. Oh my goodness, so flattering. SO FLATTERING. (From the front.) Straight up perfect spring weather Ali MacGraw in Love Story kick ass lightweight denim.
Although, they look a little lighter in person. Think chambray. Are you imagining it? Hell, let’s take this a step further – the jeans with one of my striped tops, my new favorite belt, and cognac leather platforms. Are we all on the same page? Good. May I just say, the jeans were perfectly delightful. I was ready to make out with them until I turned around and took a gander at my backside.
Good God! There must have been at least 12 inches from the waistband to the bottom of my derriere! And no pockets to break it up! I suddenly appeared to have the longest butt known to man. The Duchess of Long Butt!
I couldn’t take it. We said our goodbyes and parted ways.
However, now I’m thinking…should I open my mind to the long butt? Personally I’m thrilled that the days of super-low, fanny-crack jeans are on the outs, but I just don’t know if I can go all the way to other extreme just yet. What do you think? Are you rocking super high-waist, wide-leg jeans?
p.s. – Mark my words, many of us naysayers will most likely rock the high-waist long butt in the near future…do you remember my rant about leggings 5 years ago? Ahem. Never say never, is all I’m saying.
p.p.s. – I couldn’t leave without feeding my chambray addiction, so I left with these darlings. Cute, no?
