Quantcast

By sarah girl on What Do You Wear Around the House?

Whatever top I wore to work and what I have dubbed "comfy pants." Basically, anything with an elastic waistband.

@lindsayishere Came down to agree with everyone. Sahadi's is the best. I like it spicy. I like it plain. I have never been able to not finish it in one sitting.

@lindsayishere THANK YOU. I just came here to yell at Edith for not going to Sahadi.

I have never had the patience to stand on line at Sahadi's but I imagine that must be the best, like, ever--right?

@lindsayishere Definitely came down to the comments to post about Sahadi's. I moved to LA last year and it's one of the Top Five Things I miss from NYC. Also, has anyone been to Cook's Companion, the little store down the street? BEST STORE EVER.

@Ophelia I logged in just to question the absence of Sahadi's in the list. Now I need some.

The jeans-in-boots thing is like just about everything else. Sometimes it looks good on you and sometimes it doesn't, regardless of size, although I think this look looks good on most people. But here's my professional (yes, professional) advice:

You must get skinny jeans. The skinnier the better. The bunchy pants thing is actually what makes the look unflattering. Get jeans with stretch in them so that the knees don't bag out too much. It can also help to line dry your jeans because the heat from your dryer can ruin the elastic, making them permanently baggy.

Get nice boots. This look has been ruined by too many shitty boots.

Also, get over the "I'm not skinny, so I can't wear skinny jeans" thing. It's BS. I think it's especially flattering for those of us who carry more weight in our hips/thighs/butt because it skims over everything and doesn't add any extra volume, which I think can happen in bootcut jeans and almost always happens in a straight leg. Denim also tends to hold things in place more than other fabrics, which is awesome. Also, if you're doing the jeans-in-boots thing, it helps balance out the proportion in a way similar to a bootcut jean, but can be more streamlined.

And if you're willing to invest some money in this look, find a straight-talking salesgirl in your favorite store and tell her what you're trying to do. She's going to work hard to make sure you feel as good as you're going to look.

Eyeliner: Don't ever outline your entire eye with eyeliner. ONLY outline the outer halves. I don't get why anyone, ever, wants to outline the entire eye. That's what makes your eyes look small. (I actually stopped doing eyeliner totally about a year ago, now I just do mascara. It's the best way to get away with seeming like you're not wearing makeup.)

Lady 3: I am a size 10 and I wear skinny jeans. And I look great-- I'm doing it right now.

You can wear skinny jeans.
