when good fashion goes bad

ok. maybe i am the only person out there that this will bug, but a while ago, i bought a stupid pair of seven jeans – it was on sale, they are pricey and all those super designer-y jeans are so dang TINY that they never have my size, let alone on the sale rack – well i bought these jeans and they look really good on me. so good, that i decided i would actually get them hemmed appropriately as they apparently believe someone with my waist size to be about 18 inches taller than i am.

i had a lot of trepidation about having jeans hemmed. jeans are supposed to have just that bottom stitch, no trouser cuff, no freaky unmatching white thread or something. usually jeans end in like a rolled hem or something like that, just the fold over and the seam. its a problem with hemming jeans. but no, everyone from the sales person at nordstroms to the dry cleaners where i took them assured me it will be an edge just like you have now. instead i have this:

i know, they are very dark rinse, not one person will notice, they look like at least its a well done little cuff action going on, but yuck. i had them done pretty damn long still, to wear with heels, so if i go over the edge, dahling, i will just gnaw that whole edge out myself.

    No cuffs dahling! Do you remember G-Girl?

    May 2006, cuff became snagged on a bike rack during take off. She face planted herself right there on 42nd St.
    Unfortunitly her super powers do not include rapid healing. It was weeks before she could apply makeup. She no longer designs her own clothes.
