Skinnies for the first time! WIW todya

Hi lovelies,
I went to the outlet mall this last Sunday and purchased a coat and boots which I posted yesterday. I also purchased 2 pairs of skinnies. A first for me! I wore a pair for the first time today to work. What I wore:
black levi demi curve id skinnies
navy blue BR turtleneck
black BR cardigan
black and metal necklace
black striped talbots scarf
red topper coat
black laceup bass boots

I hope this meets with approval. The pants are super comfy. I am used to a higher rise but these seem ok for a longer top.

    Wow Meridith! You look absolutely fab in these! I need to go try on these Levis because you look amazing in them! I love the coral coat too. They look like they fit you perfectly! Yay for trying something new! With skinnies and a dress, you are starting your own style revolution and I love it! Keep it up!

    WOW! You are rocking those skinnies! Rocking them HARD!!!

  • Victoria replied 9 years ago

    Looks great on you! I love the boots with it too!

  • replied 9 years ago

    You look lovely in skinnies. You have a great figure and they look great with your tall boots!

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Meredith, you have the most fabulous legs, and the skinnies were MADE for you! LOVE this look, and the bright blue top too

  • qfbrenda replied 9 years ago

    You look fantastic!!! Well done.

  • Kate replied 9 years ago

    You look super in skinnies; your legs look so long and slender. BTW, the color of your sweater is simply gorgeous on you.

  • Jem replied 9 years ago

    You look amazing in skinnies! Super cute outfits and I'm still jealous of your boot find! :-)

  • Kirti replied 9 years ago

    You look so long and lean in skinnies! I also adore the colour of the turtleneck on you :)

    What colour is the other pair of skinnies?

  • Vicki replied 9 years ago

    Skinnies are a natural on you, Meredith, and they fit you so well. Love the lace-up boots and the whole outfit in its entirety.

  • krishnidoux replied 9 years ago

    You wear the look so well! Those are lovely jeans and you own them.

  • Astrid replied 9 years ago

    You look amazing! The color of that turtleneck is stunning on you.

  • Mo replied 9 years ago

    First skinnies?! Looks like you've been rocking them for ages! Great look.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I am overwhelmed with your lovely words of encouragement! I always worry that my legs look overly muscular. Nice that the color of the coat and the sweater were liked as well. I definitely feel better about wearing the skinnies now!

    If you have a Bass outlet near you... That's where I picked them up. What I can't believe is that they are my perfect 9 1/2 size. It was obviously meant to be!

    The other pair of skinnies are the same brand and style but are a dark wash indigo that I cannot wear to work. I did however pickup a pair of straightleg white jeans and a air of gray jeans (hmmmm might be wearing those tomorrow). They are all the demi curve Levi and I went with a size 8 except for the white straight legs which I actually prefer in the size 10.

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    WOW, you are reaching new heights every day! You're channelling Angie in that coral coat, for sure. The skinnies and boots are SO fab on you. You definitely have the figure for them. Your legs do NOT look overly muscular at all. You look long and lean and polished.

  • bj1111 replied 9 years ago

    great caboose! love the denim-n-docs pairing.

  • Meghan R replied 9 years ago

    I agree with Suz -- you definitely look long and lean here. You should make skinnies a regular part of your wardrobe:)

  • Kirti replied 9 years ago

    Oh wow I'm so excited! I can't wait to seem them all! :D

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    Wow, you look great. I can usually only wear skinnies with a tunic or longer top because I don't have the waist or derriere to carry off a shorter top.

    You are just stepping it UP, girlfriend!

  • biscuitsmom replied 9 years ago

    LOVE!!!!!!!!! So glad you took the plunge!

  • CocoLion replied 9 years ago

    I just about fell off my Lazy Boy!

    Why haven't you been wearing skinny jeans for like, 6 years already?


  • Sunita replied 9 years ago

    You really look amazing. Kudos for stepping out of your comfort zone and trying skinnies!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I am just blushing and fanning myself! Thanks to all you fab ladies for urging me to try them in the first place! Hopefully DH will think my "caboose" (as BJ1111 put it) looks pretty good too! :)

  • Angie replied 9 years ago


  • Makrame replied 9 years ago

    This is great! Wonderful fit on those skinnies, beautiful color and fit of the top, and your coat is fun, too!

  • Jjsloane replied 9 years ago

    You are so made to wear this silhouette! Fabulosity! DH is blind if he doesn't approve of this look!

  • Mellllls replied 9 years ago

    the jeans are great!!!

  • Kyle replied 9 years ago

    Goodness, skinnies for the first time and I hope not for the last. Don't deny us your fabness! I've been considering this same cut, in a tall, and you may have pushed me over the edge. The jeans fit you beautifully. Do you find that they run true to size? The boots are equally fab. Love the whole look!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks again to all the ladies for the sweet words! I so appreciate you all helping coax me out of my comfort zone. DH actually said when I got home that I look great in the pants! Not something you usually comments on.

    Thanks!!! That is the first "KILLER" I have earned and I really appreciate your approval!

  • christieanne replied 9 years ago

    I just have to chime in with Amazing!! You are totally rocking those jeans.

    I can't wait to see future installments :)
    Was it a Levis outlet store where you found the new denim at?

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    These and the dark wash denim ones I purchased are actually a 9 so a junior size? and yes they seem to be pretty true in size. My only reservation is that they ARE a low rise so I am being careful what tops I wear them with. They are very comfortable and I have worn them all day with no stretching and bagging.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I got these at the Levi Outlet mall in Boise. They also have cute straight leg styles so I bought some in a gray and I also bought a pair in white.

  • cheryle (Dianthus) replied 9 years ago

    I just saw this thread. Those skinnies look fantastic on you and I have to say the shade of blue you are wearing on top is a fabulous color for you. Yay for the skinnies.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks Dianthus! I like the top too. It is what I believe is called "bright navy".

  • Sveta replied 9 years ago

    Better late than never, Meredith. Your body was created with skinnies in mind so wear them often because they look great on you. Lobe that periwinkle blue too!

  • rachylou replied 9 years ago

    Hot, definitely hot :)

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    I cannot believe you have not worn skinnies before! You look sensational. And the color of the turtleneck and the coat are breathtaking. Gorgeous.

  • harmonica replied 9 years ago

    You look amazing in skinnies! :-)

  • Jonesy replied 9 years ago

    I am soo late to this thread, but I had to chime in to agree with everyone else and say you look fantastic!!

  • modgrl replied 9 years ago

    Holy YAY!! You look fantastic!! These skinnies and boots were made for you!!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    again from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for boosting my confidence! I do appreciate it so much!

  • lynne replied 9 years ago

    You look amazing! I hope skinnies willl be a regular part of your wardrobe now.

  • Isabel replied 9 years ago

    you look amazing !! The skinny jean world has been missing an icon !

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks again ladies! I wore them again just yesterday and I LOVE them. So comfy and I love being able to show off the boots also. Strange how we can be so afraid to try certain types of looks.

  • Scarlet replied 9 years ago

    This looks so super duper on you. I think this is your best look that I have seen in terms of head to toe fabness.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks Scarlet!
