At the risk of you sitting in front of your computer screen and thinking Oh, no she didn't! I'm totally going to follow the lead of other bloggers who've gone before me and be bold today. If Gina has the confidence to discuss pinworms and healthcare, then, by golly, I'm going to talk about a common physical ailment plaguing most of the population. And if you don't have them yourself, then you surely know someone that does.
I'm talking about the side skin spillage that results from a little extra jiggle in the middle combined with too-tight, low ride jeans. Yup, you got it...
Lovehandles. Muffintops. Spare tire.
But here's the deal. Here's where I'm going with this. Because I truly need an opinion. Or several. Here's the backstory...
This weekend, while I was waiting for them to process my clothes at Plato's Closet (I know, I'm a glutton for punishment, but you'll be glad to know they didn't tell me my clothes were too old this time...), I browsed through the racks and came across a barely used pair of STOP THE WORLD, Citizens of Humanity jeans. I about died. They were marked at $22 and retail for well over $100 brand new. I didn't even try them on. I just made myself a mental deal that if the clothes they took sold for over $22, I would buy the jeans. And, darnit if they didn't take exactly $22 worth of clothes from me. So I paid the tax and left. I knew that if they didn't fit I could always resell them on eBay for a lot more than $22. But, oh how I prayed they would fit. Not because they were designer, but because they were adorable and *long* and perfect.
Please note, these jeans were one size smaller than what I normally wear. So, getting them on required the pants dance, laying flat on my back sucking in, and the manuevering of my skin up and over the side of the jeans, result in *gasp* lovehandles.
So, I love these jeans. I really do. But I can't love them completely with the muffinish overhang.
And here's where I need your opinion: Do I keep them and try to tone my muffin top down a little? OR Do I sell them on eBay for profit?
I should let you know that I am not overweight, do not have any desire to lose weight, and would never wear these jeans in public unless I did NOT sport the spare tire. I'm looking at the jeans as motivation, right?
My mother says sell them. But again, I reeeeeeeally looooove them.
Please tell me there's other women out there who buy things they want to fit into someday. Or am I completely ridiculous?????
