F is home for spring break.
We tried to buy some jeans this morning. No luck. Every pair of blue jeans in the world is bitter ashes and snake venom.
The jeans must:
1 Be actual denim, and not have the fake distressed or obviously faded look. (That eliminates 90% right there.)
2 Not come up to her belly button, but not be so low as to ... you know.
3 Have a reasonable flare. No taper.
4 Not be excessively tight in the thigh.
And finally -
5 Fit. F has a knockout figure. She has a tiny waist, and apart from that is actually quite curvy. It's hard to find pants that don't fit too tight around the butt and don't stand out from her waist in the back. If she can find some not-too-low low riders, that should help the waist issue. Levi's size 6 slims would probably do the trick except that this year she can't find any that she can STAND. After her nap (and my nap) we might go to Sears to check out the Lee and Land's End brand stuff they have there.
We did find some cute shoes at Target.
They're just crying out for some new jeans, don't you think? Or maybe capris.
Edit: Success, sort of. Levi's 515s. They do not flare as much as desired, but they are viewed with resigned acceptance rather than overt dislike. Sears had exactly one pair in her size.
