I'm a little sad. Despite her being on the East Coast this Christmas, I missed seeing MotorCityGirl (and more importantly, meeting her incredibly adorable daughter). But as she drove west this morning, she called me from the mountains of Western Pennsylvania to chat. In the midst of other catching up, she told me about her latest fashion find.
You see, there are plenty of women out there who don't want to wear "mom jeans," but who are, in fact, moms, and who have hips. Ok, so that's really 98% of the population. Little known - or rather, little-admitted fact: low-cut jeans fall off of women with hips. So what's a girl to do if she wants to stay away from the dreaded tapered leg?
She makes a beeline for Old Navy, and picks up Women's At-Waist Stretch Boot-Cut Jeans. 20th, even 21st century, in a couple of different shades (I'm always personally partial to the darker washes - I still get 80s and early 90s flashbacks when I see anything lighter than midnight blue), they've got the stretch comfort factor and the boot cut fashion factor.
Never mind that they're $29.50. Oh - and they're apparently only available online. So use your post-holiday sloth to surf over to www.oldnavy.com and purchase away!
