The Holy Grail of Jeans

A number of years back, I won an eBay auction for a pair of 7 For all Mankind jeans. I had never owned a pair of designer jeans prior to that and, I can honestly say, I didn't get what all the fuss was; I mean, pay over $100 for a pair of jeans? No way! Jeans that expensive would need to be crafted with gold thread and pixie dust. They would have to make my ass look like something from a Victoria's Secret photo shoot, and, we all know that wasn't happening.

Yeah.

The jeans came and my life was transformed, because, while they weren't crafted from golden thread and pixie dust, they did make my ass look fine.

When said ass got too big to wear the jeans, I was devastated, and, every diet and exercise program from then on was designed with the sole intent of getting back into those jeans,

Flash forward six years*.

Guess what I fit into, today?

And, I'll be damned if they didn't make my ass look fine, yet again. Which, means they could, quite possibly, be crafted from pixie dust, after all.

All hail the pixies!

*Yes, I did keep a pair of jeans in my closet for six years, waiting for the day that they might fit again. I am female. And, an optimist. Do not judge me!
