Did you think this was a post about raspberries?
I’m getting to all that…..but first…..I really need a big opinion from you.
What do you think about colored jeans with lace on them?
I can’t decide.
I was shopping today and I saw the cutest pink jeans covered in lace and I kind of liked them….well….actually….I wanted to like them….because they looked like something I would should be liking.
But lace? And jeans? Isn’t that so close to those lace gloves without fingers?
Those jeans could go either way.
They could go all Jennifer Aniston wearing a bobby pin leaving on a jet plane for the south of France…..
…..or be totally Ginger from Gilligan’s Island.
I can’t tell. There’s something about the lace that leaves me a little stymied.
I’ll wait patiently for your fashion opinion.
Now back to our regularly scheduled post.
