10 blue jean baby


today, due to unprecedented thriftiness and a steadfast determination to wait out a demin defecit until the post-christmas sales, i am wearing jeans from 2001.

let's dwell on that a moment.

2001.

in 2001, i was 20. i had boy hair. it was brown.

9/11 had happened the month before. the ipod, the xbox and windows xp were released the month after. britney spears and jTim were dating. dakota fanning was 7.

we were at war with no one when i bought these jeans.

so on the one hand, these jeans make me feel outrageously old. but then, they also raise the question: do i seriously still have the body of a 20-year-old?!

Begs the question...

Were these tapered leg or bootcut?

oline said...

hush.

and actually it was the tapered leg that did me wrong all those years. the tapered is the most devious of legs.

yes, but how old is your soul?

no, it was a double post. I didn't think it would come up like that. It looks so sinister.

Linda said...

heh heh. tapered.

i cannot judge... I put a safety pin in my shirt to keep it less "low necked" and thought it was subtle.

Meggie said...

You notice she didn't actually answer whether or not these were tapered or bootcut...

Very suspicious...
