If you like skinnies you may question why I don't. The reason is simple. I don't consider my legs to be my best feature. Especially my knees. My mom used to tell me when I was young, "Don't ever stop working out. Fat knees run in our family." Well, Mom, I didn't stop working out but the fat knees got me anyway! That's really it. It's the leg thing. But that is enough to make trying them on miserable. And they are only getting skinnier! Last night I pulled on a pair of Citizens in black (thinking they would be more forgiving) only to have the experience to be EXACTLY like pulling on a pair of tights. Ugh.
Anyway, the point of all this is to tell you skinny jeans are not going anywhere. So get used to it. And, if you have to have a pair or two in your wardrobe, try out the denim line by Mother. It is the brainchild of former head designer for 7 for All Mankind and the director of sales from Citizens of Humanity. It's like they got together and had a baby called Mother. Ha!
Check them out at Hu's Wear in Georgetown. For skinnies, they're not so bad.
