I love the comment that they are called skinny jeans, not wish-you-were-skinny jeans! So why have I caved and got myself some? I'm not really sure. I think maybe curiosity had something to do with it. Why would so many women wear them if they were too horrible? Second, I've reached pre-pregnancy weight and I'm very bored with my wardrobe (what is it about getting back to your desired clothesize that makes you want new clothes?). Finally, a bargain was what initially got me into the pants. I found a pair of skinny jeans from Target for a mere $7.00. Who can pass up a bargain like that?! Isn't it sad that an inexpensive price tag changed my cemented opinion of something? Well, I guess I'm just cheap :)
As for the pants, they're not as bad as I first supposed. I think I'll occasionally wear them, as long as my behind is covered by a longer shirt or sweater. I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the "skinny trend".
