Looking thinner in Jeans ?

Well, our worries are over with the new super girdle jeans. They are supposed to make you look thinner. But do they??

Well, since I got off work early today I thought I would stroll through the stores and try to find a great pair of girdle jeans. I know they have another more modern name but at the end of the day it’s like a girdle. I somehow like this name though I know stretch sounds better to us gals.

Once I was in a store that sold jeans I saw them there amongst the mature women’s fashion. I felt like I have been kicked in my shins when I saw the sign but then gave it another thought and asked the sales assistant “what age group are the jeans for because it says for mature women?”

Well , as always she told me it was for women over 40 and those jeans were right for me . I didn’t know what to say and asked: What if you are under 40; than do you have other sorts of jeans?

Now that question seemed to rile the sale assistant a bit because she didn’t know what to say to me. And said there are normal jeans. I thought now what are normal jeans?

Do you wear normal jeans or not normal jeans??

I thought my jeans I had on were normal but I must say I have never considered this fact before. I then decided to ask for a pair of those girdle jeans so I could try them on and see my great new figure in them.

So while waiting for a pair in my size I thought boy my guy is going to fall over when he sees me in these and will say” you look great!” Ok, I know I am dreaming ….. and he’ll more likely say “ oh, a new pair of jeans- nice.”

After squirming into the jeans I felt it could be a bit difficult to sit down and I think these jeans are made for a party where everyone is standing around trying to look good and you are not allowed to eat or drink anything either or else …. An explosion and they won’t be those skin tight girdle jeans but, the I popped the button jeans.

Jeans aren’t like they used to be.

Now-a-days they seem to make your figure look like a giant overstuffed thing. Years ago you could slip a pair of jeans on and wow they looked good. Everyone says that my figure has changed through the years. I find this hard to believe and think that their eyesight is failing them.

Jeans are just not what they used to be and no one can change my mind!!

I love my jeans but I don’t think my jeans love me like they used too and maybe some of you gals know exactly what I am talking about here. Our great jeans somehow don’t fit like they used too. I could cry!!

Why do jeans do that to us gals? Guys don’t have the jeans problem like we do or do you?
Jeans have been my faithful fashion companion for years and I don’t want to say good bye to them just yet either. Why don’t they make jeans that make mature women look attractive? Or are we a group that doesn’t count anymore?

Maybe, some company who makes jeans may read this and say, hey great idea and tell us that they make jeans that make our figure look good too without strech or a sewn in a girdle to flatten our tummies. I will be waiting!!

Cold weather coats and people

Winter seems to be a time for cold weather and all sorts of odd-looking outfits. I personally like to dress warmly and have some sort of fashionable look about me, even though it may not be the same fashion tastes as others and all I can say is I am happy with the way I look. But if one of my friends say to me “Don’t you think you look a bit strange or fat in what you have on”; I take this in stride because maybe there’s some truth in it and I should change my outfit or coat. We seem to find ourselves searching for what we consider warm and at the same time making a statement saying here I am look at me.

I must say I look at other people to see what their wearing and I am sure many of you look at what other people are wearing too when it’s cold outside. Even though if someone confronted you and asked “Were you looking at me?” Most of us would automatically deny it- I mean really do you actually want to say “Hey, I was staring at what you have on and I think it looks really bad on you.” Can you image the response you would get from that person? I don’t even what to think about it, let alone the thought that you may get a black eye at the same time too for saying something like that. Too dangerous for me; I’m going to steer clear of saying anything.

Though I will admit that I have often thought about what the other person is wearing and think it looks like s#@t on them or I think “did you get dressed in the dark?” or to side track a bit: you are on the bus or subway and the heat is on full power, and there is someone there who hasn’t had a shower for weeks and the body odor is penetrating everywhere and the person who – to put it nicely stinks and seems to be oblivious to everything.
When there is someone around like that I always wish that I had a gas mask with me, so I won’t suffocate. Haven’t these people ever heard of soap and water and the washing machine where you can put your clothes (and maybe they should dive into it too) into this machine add some soap and turn it on and after about an hour – bingo-your clothes are clean!
The miracle of modern appliances.

Sorry got a bit side tracked from the fashion points of cold weather but it was something which I found important to mention.
Now-a-days you can buy all sorts of winter coats that are affordable for everyone. There are some people who prefer expensive coats sporting a label so that everyone can see that they may have spent a lot of money on their coat. Whether the coats warm that’s not the question; main thing is it was expensive and I can brag to all my friends that I spent a fortune – I am someone now-. Then there’s the person who wears a coat that wouldn’t keep you warm in the middle of summer. It’s made of some flimsy material but they feel they look cool in it and probably feeling coooool too. Or I love the coats that look like an old blanket; you know the fake fur sort- looks good new, but once you’ve washed it once in the washing machine that’s the end of it and it looks like an old blanket. Though hopefully warm?

I mean the choice is endless when it comes to the sort of materials that winter coats are made of and here are some examples: wool, polyester, down, cotton, etc and same holds true for colors, though this seems to be limited. Most popular colors seem to be black, brown, or blue though sometimes you may get lucky and see someone wearing a coat or jacket of a brighter color and then they stand-out like a sore thumb.

Remember years ago when almost all winter apparel was brightly colored and everyone could see you coming a mile away. Too bad those days are over. But I can say I saw someone with one of those older model winter coats on. It was a yellow-orange color with shoulder pads that made the women look like a weight lifter – maybe she was who knows?
Those coats back then never did a thing for your figure and if you are short you looked like a stuffed duck with shoulders on you that made you look like you could lift weights weighing a ton without a problem.

So much for winter fashion. Stay warm and enjoy winter!
