Arrrgh I have to go jean shopping today. My only pair of blue, blue jeans have finally worn through in not so strategic places. To wear them again, would be beyond un-PC and possibly considered indecent.
I own several pair jeans that survived the fire tucked away in a closet that only got smokey and soaked. There are 5 pair of black Ralph Lauren – I love black and Ralph fits my shape. But, I only had one pair of blue jeans. They’re Jones NY. As well as Ralph’s black jeans fit me, his blue ones do not – go figure
Knowing how styles and cuts of clothing change from year to year, I doubt if Jones will still fit like my old ones. I’ve had them for almost 10 years. I’m trying Jones first, but I don’t have my hopes up. I’ll probably keep the old ones to run around the house.
So, sigh. I have to go jean shopping today. I’ve called Jane (mom) and I’m picking her up at noon; she is a shopping pro and when I ask “do these make me look fat, she’ll tell me the truth. We’ll hit the Galleria for a 2-fer lunch at Ruby Tuesday’s and a glass or two of liquid courage for the task at hand.
