Totally Vintage Jeans

Oh my gosh, My Jordache Jeans arrived and they fit fantastic!  I totally remember them.  It’s not just the brand but the fit.  The high waist.  I can rarely find them anymore.  I can’t stand the low waist jeans.  I also found Levi’s, Gitano, Ditto’s! 
 
Funny story about Ditto’s;
 
My mother bought everything on sale.  I was not really a name-brand person but I so wanted a pair of Ditto Jeans.  They were just cool and everyone was wearing them at school.  I begged mom for a pair of Ditto’s.  Finally, mom got me a pair of green, Ditto jeans.  You would have thought I’d received a Diamond Ring or a gold bar.  I word those jeans to school like I owned the place.  I told everybody,  “Yeah, I’m in.  I’ve got Ditto’s.  See, I dress fashionable.”  Then, it happened.  One of the well-dressed, popular snobs approached me and said, “Why are you wearing those?, Those went out of style last week.”  Needless to say I was devastated.  I was embarrassed.  I could have hidden in a hole.  I was so mad at my mother. 
I went home and told her I was never going to wear those jeans again.  My mother said, “Yes, you are.   I spent good money on those jeans and you are going to wear them.” So, I wore them at home or to church or to whatever social events; but not to school, because they were out of style due to mom waiting until they went on sale. 
 
But you know what?  Vintage is back now!  I’m an adult!  Brands don’t matter.  Comfort matters.  I loved the 80’s and still do.  Anything and everything is fair game.  For those that like to tease me (CelaineyGirl), Yes, I probably will be purchasing some Ditto’s soon.  I even like the 70’s clothes like The Brady Bunch.  Colored jeans and pants, why not?    
 
I say Be Yourself and take pride in your style.     
 

Types of ‘Fashionista’s’

You know the runway models on t.v and in the magazines?  You know those outrageous outfits they wear that are supposedly in style?  Some of which you dream of owning, actually believing you could wear..somewhere?  Now, let’s think about your friends and family..how many people do you know that have actually worn any of those fashion model outfits?  I can give you my answer without hands.  ZERO!  Honestly, I have never seen any of my friends walking down the street wearing a feather boa scarf or  camel skin tights.  What?  You saw your friend Fred wear the balloon pants once?  That’s great, but did he spend $900.00 on them like the model?..I didn’t think so.  It just isn’t reality.  Plus,

Do any of those models have zits on their faces or extra weight in their rears, or big tummies or thunder thighs?  Who are those clothes really selling to?

Okay, so let’s talk about stores also.  When asking my friends where they buy their clothes, many will say, “I got it at Ross.”..Yeah, like the commercial or “There’s a great thrift shop, boutique, vintage store at…”  some will even say, “I went to the Goodwill or I found this online site.”  Most people don’t spend too much for clothes.

I was in the doctor’s office not to long ago on on a day when it was over 100 degree’s and in walked a sales girl wearing a black suit dressed to the hilt with jewelry and everything.  She didn’t look like she was sweating at all but she made me hotter than I already was looking at her in her black.  I made a complimentary comment on her outfit and she actually said, “Thanks, I’m a Maxinista.”  I smiled and we sort of laughed at that and I’m thinking  a Whatta Whatta?  just knowing I would have to go look it up on the internet when I got home…which I did.

Maxinista…someone who buys everything from TJ-Max and follows TJ-Max Fashion Trends.  Maxinista?  Really?  So, if you buy everything from Ross..would that make you a Rossinista?  For those of us that buy most everything online; why not call us Onlineista or Internetista? although that 2nd one sounds a bit to sexual.  Heck if you go to K-Mart, you could be a Kmartista.just put Ista on the end of everything and we could have a new trend.

Anyway, I was thinking as the girl flipped her hair and fixed her make-up in the waiting room across from me.  I have never been much into fashion,  My mother alway’s bought everything on sale so we didn’t stay up with the trends.  I was comfortable in my  long shorts and my cat t-shirt.  That’s who I am.  Most of my shirts have some sort of slogan and 80% have a cat motif of some sort.  I don’t dress to impress guys.  I dress to be comfortable.  From what I’ve gathered in reading blogs and talking to friends..most women nowadays agree with me.  However, if a guy were to walk into a room and see a girl wearing long shorts and cat t-shirt verses Miss Maxinista on a 100+ degree day, who would he choose to meet first?
