oh god no.

Really, that is OTT.

navyeyelasH Mon 15-Jun-09 23:12:30

hmm sad ok I'll go with indigo jeans.

GeneHunt, I wouldn't know I was born in '83 wink [evil laugh]

shhhh Mon 15-Jun-09 23:13:17

Of course you can grin.
Sound lovely..!

I just bought dd electric blue/turquoise cropped trousers and fuschia pink top to wear together grin.
I love the colours that seem to clash yet compliment each other so

Only if you planning to run away with the circus and own very large shoes...

Oh god really, is it that bad?! I don't get why? I normally wear pretty random things but didn't think this was that bad?! I might lose the red jeans but the blue and purple is staying!

michaelbooblie Mon 15-Jun-09 23:21:18

Yes, why not ? Have you tried the outfit on and liked it ?
If so just go for it.
Make sure your shoes and bag are one of these colours though (prob the purple or blue).
You're 25 wear what the hell you like !
envy at big norks !

navyeyelasH Mon 15-Jun-09 23:27:46

big norks are a curse - honest!

I haven't tried it all on together I'm going shopping tomorrow and need to get the jeans so am just doing a quick online recky (sp?) to speed things up tomorrow - maybe I will give it a go!

I'm not even sure I can do skinnies I do have a big bum so usually steer clear but had to wear a friends pair last week and I quite liked them!

Is there a rule that you have to be slinky for skinnies?

michaelbooblie Mon 15-Jun-09 23:36:47

Depends what your legs are like I think, If they are a good shape and quite slim - fine. If not go for straight leg, still slim fitting but a bit more forgiving.
New look do great ones (Polka) but only in indigo or black.

only if you're getting a job on CBeebies

navyeyelasH Mon 15-Jun-09 23:47:43

snice - I work as a nanny so you're not far off!

Michaelbooblie - legs I would say are fat of thigh but slim in calve & ankle. I thought maybe if I got a block coloured pair with big bum pockets could be do-able. Will try a pair on as well as straight leg and see which looks best.

Are the polka ones low rise do you know? I can't so low rise at all!

michaelbooblie Tue 16-Jun-09 00:00:15

No not particularly low ,I dont think.
Sit just below my hip bone (but I'm tall)
But I hate jeans that you feel like you have to pull up all the time and make fatty bits on hips look worse!
Polka are great !

michaelbooblie Tue 16-Jun-09 00:08:00

Good luck with shopping, I'm off to bed now.

Are you auditioning to be a clown?

navyeyelasH Wed 17-Jun-09 14:09:31

I don't really get the clown reference? Michaelbooblie thanks for the help - in the end I did go for the crazy colours and I also bought a pair of those Polka jeans they are really nice!
