Ahhhh some of my favorite words in the English langauge.
Thanks to LL Bean, we can enjoy not one, but 2 items each day that are super on sale. I love to look and see what they have. On occasion, I've been lucky to find a real steal but sometimes the items are duds or they aren't what I need.
Today's 2nd markdown item:
Women's Saturday Corduroy Pants, Boot-Cut Straight
Everything was great until that last word- straight. This makes me start to quiver because it can only mean these vicious words will come next:
fitted through hips and thigh
Apart from phrases like "we've reached our altitude of 10,000 feet, now jump and enjoy the fall!" or "don't look now, but there's a 10 inch camel spider on the wall behind you, just act normal" , these are the most dreaded words on the planet.
I know it's hard to believe that those 5 words can bring dreadful nightmares to someone who can rock these skinny jeans or who can pull off leggings like this.
But these are the words I hate most in life.
Even at my very skinniest, I have never been straight through the hip and no pair of fitted anything has ever looked right on me. Unlike all of those boyish models who have no hips, I fall in to the class of J-lo when it comes to curves.
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard but sadly, they are all scary freaks.
And if I try to squeeze that milkshake into anything fitted in the thigh or hip, then it's just a mess.
Why, LL BEAN??? Why must you torment me so? Do you know how many times I have fallen for your daily markdown only to be tormented by your taunts of FITTED pants????
