Boyfriend jeans aren’t for petite girls—or so say the Interwebs (Too big for your frame. Will make you look stumpy. Just another trend you’re too short to wear.) Well, you can’t believe everything on the web, right? My mission: Prove this theory wrong and find a pair of boyfriend jeans that fit all 5 foot 2 inches of me. But after a maddening search at Bloomingdale’s, Saks, Target, TJ Maxx, Gap, Forever 21, H&M, Zara, Express, Loehmann’s—even the little boys section of a store as a last ditch effort to find baggie jeans I could pass off there as boyfriend jeans—I started to think it’s true. Maybe boyfriend jeans aren’t for petite girls.
So why would a girly girl like me want boyfriend jeans to begin with? It isn’t exactly part of usual aesthetic. But there’s something about throwing on a pair of heels and a bit of bling with oversized ripped up jeans that still screams uber fem. And I wasn’t willing to stop looking until I found a pair. End of story.
And I did. Thanks to Daniela Ramirez of Nanys Klozet, also a petite ami. Turns out, Dittos makes little jeans (and regular ones, too). And such great little jeans they are. Tho, hubby prefers I refer to them as husband jeans (instead of boyfriend jeans). Whatever we’re calling them, mission accomplished. Wear them with a tank. Wear them with heels. Wear them with something that sparkles, like my InPink Bib Necklace. Like it? You can score one at inpink.com. Use the promo code GINGER30 for 30 percent off all jewelry now through May 15.
