Not too long ago, "O" had those women from "What Not to Wear" on her show. All I remember from that was how important boot cut jeans are to every woman's wardrobe.
Although I am certainly NOT on the cutting edge of fashion (by the time I saw this episode, I think "boot cut" was out and "skinny leg" was in), I certainly took the message to heart. I mean if Oprah says so! I went out and found several pair of boot cut jeans.
I liked them. Except. My shirts were too short. And the shape was well not quite, um, modest. I finally figured out, after a few YEARS of trying to make this work, that boot cut jeans are not for me.
One quick trip to the store and I am happily back in straight leg, high waist, Mom jeans. These are comfortable, attractive and I can wear them with ANY shirt I have in my closet. Perhaps its not the "in" look but I sure am a lot more at ease.
Sr. Mary Martha wrote more on the subject of fashion and modesty. Funny. But true.
