I recently went shopping for new pants. It seems I hafta go shopping for pants every so often because I often buy the wrong size (too big) and then I hafta get them altered (my seamstress knows exactly how to fix them) or the belt i wear cuts into my stomach and i’m all bunchy. Yes, that’s a fashion word i just made up: bunchy. It means the pants bunch up in the waist cuz the belt is pulled too tight to keep my pants from falling down.
Why do I wear belts?
Because I hate floppy pants. I hate to have my hiney showing when i bend over or lift my arms. No one needs to see my private undergarments and this low rise business makes me irritable.
Speaking of irritable, I’ve only found a few brands of jeans that fit me consistently and don’t make me look frumpy and bunchy. One day, while looking in my closet, I noticed I had a lot of the same brand of pants: Lee. So I counted them.
Turns out, I have 13 pair of Lee brand pants.
Light coloreds and denims.
and another group of greys, browns, and blacks.
Plus, if you’ll remember back from this post: I recently bought and wore a pair of skinty (skinny) jeans!
That is why, on a quest for a new pair of everyday jeans, I was dismayed when trying on new jeans. My go to size 10s didn’t fit right! I thought it was the cut of the jeans so I tried on a couple different pairs but knew in my heart the truth. I needed a size 12. Size is just a number, you say? Maybe. But since Pammypam was a girl she’s struggled with being too thin so being a size 12 was indeed a conundrum.
What’s a girl to do?
What she’s been trained to do: complain.
I got on Twitter, found Lee Jeans’ Twitter handle and complained.
The results were spectacular!
Stay tuned for more of this exciting story of the shrinking closet!
