A few days ago I had a really cute outfit planned out: some leopard print jeans from Gina Tricot paired with this pretty cobalt blue sweater from H&M. I don’t know about ya’ll, but when I first put on a pair of jeans in the morning I usually like to do some stretches in them to loosen the fibers a little bit – unless there is a lot of stretch to them already.
These particular leopard jeans had a weird fit as is – it was like they were jeggings (leggings + jeans) but the crotch needed to be stretched out. (Or maybe that is just the Kim Kardashian in me if you know what I’m saying.) After I had gotten ready one morning and was in the kitchen making breakfast, I thought I would do some deep lunges and squats to hopefully loosen the jeans up a bit.
I had been doing these exercises for awhile as my oatmeal cooked, and went for one last attempt at a squat while pushing my knees out. Then, all of a sudden, I heard a ripping sound, but also slightly less tension from my pants.
I knew exactly what I had done – and thank the Lord I was in the kitchen alone because it was only a matter of seconds before I felt a little draft on my hiney.
This was actually my second pair of these pants. With my first pair a piece of the pocket hardware had come off, and considering how OCD I am about certain things I exchanged them for pair number two.
I think these pants only deserve two chances, and apparently they are too cheap to stay together – but in their hardware but also from my stretching.
Of course my mom was like “I can sew those, they ripped on a seam!” Well.. they didn’t, actually. I mean part of them did rip on a seam, but part of them also tore across the fabric. I’m not sure what I’ll do with these now. If I was at home I would try and create something very DIY with the leftover fabric, but since I’m here that isn’t as easy.
Too bad so sad. Stay tuned to see if I am able to create anything from these, though!
