Hi Everyone! Are you all settling back into real life? I can’t catch up on my sleep, but I’m so glad to not be on the eating and drinking train anymore. I know that most of you have figured out that jeans are my jam, and I wear them almost every day. When ripped jeans hit the scene of late, I was a little skeptical about wearing them, but slowly but surely, they inched their way into my closet. Now when I say ripped, I am talking a little distressed instead of full-blown rips, like this. What I won’t wear, are holes at the knees with the threads across, like this. Here is why…Once you reach a certain age (40ish), your knees start to sag or your skin gets looser, sort of like everything else on your body!!!
My knees aren’t horribly saggy and don’t look that bad in a dress, but put a pair of ripped jeans with threads across the knee and it turns into what I think looks like “vajeana” knee! My daughter coined that word after me telling her about what I thought this looked like. It looks like a vagina knee! I was with my friends Sam and Heather, trying on jeans a few weeks back. They both wanted me to try on a pair that was ripped at the knee. I told them no way was I wearing a pair like that and told them about the “vajeana” knee. They prodded me to try, and as I had them all the way on, Sam looked at my knees and said…’Oh my God, it’s happening”. I told her, but she wouldn’t believe it until she saw it. A week ago, Heather and I were in a dressing room and she put on a tighter pair ripped at the knee (with threads). We both just howled! There it was!
Ladies…wear your distressed jeans, but be careful when they are ripped at the knee. It’s better to wear them with a big hole at the knee, than with the threads across. Just a little helpful hint by me today. Have a great day! xx
