boyfriend whine



I've always loved the boyfriend look. Long before it became popular/trendy, I used to wear men's jeans because they were super comfortable, I was a tomboy, and I hated my awkward body. Who wanted T and A, anyway? *crickets* Either way, I've since been trying to find a nice pair of pants, sort of like a Dior Homme style. Unfortunately, after going through endless pairs of jeans hoping to find a slim fitting men's style, I've come to the conclusion that my ass is too big to pull this off. Anything that fits in the waist/is long enough/is snug at the ankle, is too tight across the bum and just looks like women's slouchy skinny jeans. F*$#. I don't even want to post pictures of this damn trend b/c it infuriates me. I refuse to shell out $300 on trendy jeans, but I didn't want the plain old baggy kind. Wah...
However, I will post this:


This is the ideal. Aaliyah, my muse. Random Asian girl with something closer to what I want. And Ciara, a more recent follower of the trend. I just don't want them that baggy...oh well. Back to the drawing board. I'm not huge and yet I can't find pants that slouch just so. This is exactly why I hate trends; makes it harder for people who just want to dress in the clothes they love to find said clothes at a decent price...whine whine whine. Must be the rain. It's FREAKING FRIGID outside...wtf??? Fake ass spring. Ugh.
