still trying to get used to wearing so much leather... it makes that weird squishy sound when i move my arms. and its got that smell. and i cant help but feel a bit like michael jackson. i've already annoyed everyone so much by going, "but dont you think i look a little like i just stepped out of the thriller video?" anyways.. hopefully it will pass. if not, i might have to put this one up for sale. haha thats my back up plan for everything!
also went shopping this past weekend and bought two new pairs of jeans. i've been abusing my current skinny jeans. i have 2 pairs that i like that i've been switching back and forth between, every week, for the past year. so i think it was time to invest in some more. dont get me wrong though, i still love the old ones to death -- j brand. i love them... even after so much wear and frequent washing they still havent lost their stretch and there is some fading in the color, but its minimal. thats probably the only reason why i'd prefer name-brand jeans to cheapo jeans, they definitely do last! (probably also depends on the brand too) so the new ones i've added into my collection -- a pair of black tsubi (or ksubi they now call them in the states) skinny zip jeans and a pair of greyish blue radcliffe jeans.
my reviews for them so far? the tsubi's (er.. ksubi's) are awesome! theyre the perfect length for me. im short, and they actually arent super duper long like every other pair of jeans i own. the ankle zip allows me to wear them over heels without stretching out the bottoms. and i love... LOVE the markings on them. they're cool and recognizable, but theyre not loud and tacky.
the second pair from radcliffe, i hadnt actually worn outside yet. im just glad theyre not "just another pair of black jeans" because... well, theyre greyish blue. haha. im loving the little slit in the back pocket that allows a bit of color and fabric to peek through.
