Okay, so after getting your eyes used to the GLARING orange cardigan I’m wearing today, please notice the jeans. As much as I hate Pinterest (long story), I did run across a pin of someone taking an old pair of bootcut jeans and cutting them to crop them and make them “boyfriend” style. I immediately thought “brilliant!” and wanted to try it myself since I have four pairs of size 32 high-end jeans leftover from weight-loss that I absolutely have not been able to get rid of. Even though I wore them all a ton, they are all still in great shape (a testament to the quality of Goldsign & James Jeans – and the ridiculously high price I paid for them back in the day), so I’ve had a hard time selling/giving them away. Now, maybe, I know what to do with them.
I think I might be able to wear these as is – without hemming – but I will definitely have to get the waist taken in a lot; they are falling off of me, and these are low-rise anyway, so it’s not a great look. Can a tailor take in a waistband three/four sizes?? I don’t know, but I’m going to try. Maybe I’ll also see if he can taper the legs in just a bit so they’re not SO wide at the bottom. And if this pair turns out okay, I’ll take my other jeans and see what magic he can work. I’m excited about breathing new life into my VERY old jeans. Have you ever done that? how did it turn out?
Have a great weekend!! Who else got their Everlane sweatshirts in the mail yesterday??
