You guys, I am so high right now.

Oh, high-waisted jeans, we have such a tumultuous relationship.


My own natural waist is so disproportionately high on my torso that even the highest of high-rise trousers can barely reach the intended spot on my waistline, and find a way to dig into the flesh of my hips. And yet, that form-fitting silhouette, that kitschy 1970's vibe is too awesome to resist, and I give in every time. I keep coming back to you, remembering only how kickass you look with a tucked-in sweater or pair of massive sunglasses, conveniently forgetting everything you always put me through to get there.


But who am I kidding -- I'm happy to forget. A little self-deception in the name of fashion never hurt anyone (except my hips).

  4. I love high waisted jeans too!! I have the opposite torso--my waist is way way way too low and and high waisted jeans are the only things that save me from looking like a long torsoed freak in pants. You look amazing in those pants!!

  17. I've just discovered your blog - but I have to say, I love love love these jeans. I've almost stopped wearing jeans completely because I have such an issue finding a waist that fits and sits right - these look amazing, I'm going to try to hunt down a pair.
