top - borrowed off my mum, jeans courtesy uniqlo, bracelet - vintage, boots - schuh
I don't know if this is normal or not, but at twenty six years of age what you see in these photos is my first ever pair of skinny jeans. I've always felt self conscious of my thighs, and the tapering style of most skinnies just seemed to emphasise everything I hated even more.
I have been branching out into trousers more and more though, and so when uniqlo offered to send me a piece of clothing to try out I decided it was time to give uniqlo jeans a go. What particularly tempted me is that these are uniqlo's 'skinny-straight' jeans - skinny at the top but with a straight leg at the bottom.
This works so much better for me as I think the straight leg balances out the bits I don't like about myself, and although I still feel a bit self conscious I really like these jeans and I'm really happy with the fit. As with everything Uniqlo, they are really well made and very reasonably priced. I already want them in a whole rainbow of colours!
