Practicing Wearing My New Jeans

I bought a new pair of jeans the other day and they are pushing my self-image a little bit. This happened before, last October, when I bought my first (and only) pair of low riding “skinny jeans.” I was so weirded out by what I looked like in them that I refused to wear them where anyone who knew me might actually see me; keep in mind that I had been wearing loose fit Eddie Bauer jeans that sit at the waist–not below the waist–for decades!

So my first foray in my new jeans occurred when my sister and I went to NYC on a theatre trip. I figured that no one in NYC was going to notice me in my jeans. And I was right. In fact, no one noticed at home either, but it was easier to try on my new jeans, and the new me, in a more anonymous environment.

Today I am heading out again to a large anonymous city. And I have on, yet again, my newest pair of low riding, boot-cut stretch jeans. Will anyone notice? Probably not. But having worn them out once where no one knows me may make it easier to wear them out where people I do actually know might see. Make sense? Maybe not, but it makes sense to me!
