Something New

last week Ed had to do something for work up near this mall that I have been wanting to go to for a while (I don't even know what it's called sadly) but he offered to take me and let me shop for a few hours while he did his work thing. I gladly accepted the invitation knowing that there was a huge Forever 21 there and that I was in dire need of some basic clothing that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on. On the way there, he was telling me about a conversation he had at his other job that day about jeggings:

Ed: blah, blah, blah....jeggings.
Me: What the heck did you just say? What is that?
Ed: It's those really tight leggings that look like jeans.
Me: Oh my gosh I HATE those! You know, "soandso" always wears those and I think they look so stupid! I seriously hate them, she tries to be so stylish but it just looks dumb!
Ed: Yeah, she would.

Alright, now fast-forward two hours when Ed picked me up from the mall.

Ed: So what did you get?
Me: Eh, I spent $** dollars, is that okay?
Ed: Yeah, that's fine but what did you get?
Me: Ehhhhh....(really stuttering) I think, umm well, I think maybe, I'm not sure, but I might have bought jeggings.
Ed: (silence...............dying laughing) LET ME SEE!
I show him
Ed: Yep! Those are jeggings!

And so, here I am with jeggings now. But let me just explain my mistake and my new change of heart. In a nutshell, I saw some skinny jeans (or what I thought were skinny jeans) for only $14 and I tried them on. They were pretty tight but since I don't currently own any real skinny jeans, I figured skinny jeans are supposed to be tight. They had a zipper and pockets but I slightly suspected they might be jeggings because they were so stretchy. Nevertheless, I bought them because they were cheap and I was pleasantly surprised that they looked slightly good on me. I have worn them once, and I must say that I have nothing against them now. They are ten times more comfortable then jeans and make my butt look somewhat smaller! I am now publicly apologizing for making fun of anyone who has worn jeggings and will proudly wear mine from this day forward. Granted, I probably won't ever buy another pair, but if people want to wear them, I will support their decision. And look how cute Katrina Bowden from 30 Rock looks in them?


  1. For real? Jeggings Amanda? I can't believe you are one of them now. But I won't make fun of you. I mean I will probably own jeggings one always seems to happen like that.
