I’ve finally taken the plunge and bought American Apparel‘s Disco Pants. *Exhale*
I might have to explain that I absolutely hate my legs. They are too short (as long as my upper body, when they should be longer than my upper body according to The Vitruvian Man by DaVinci) and because they are so short they also look bigger than they would look if they were 1-2inches longer. I hate my legs so much, because whatever I buy for my lower body, I have to cut about 2inches of fabric off (and I can sew for sh*t, so not the best situation!). I hate my legs so much that when I used to suffer from depression I would rather cut my legs than my arms ‘cause I knew that I would never really be confident enough to just get my legs out without hesitation. I hate my legs so much that I’ve SERIOUSLY considered doing a leg extending surgery, but I unfortunately don’t have £100k lying about (anyone fancy sponsoring me? ;-))
But I also am incredibly stubborn. And want to push myself to do things that I would not consider doing. Blogging has brought me to that. So I have been playing with the idea of getting Disco Pants for a long while. But splashing out £70 for a pair of pants that would likely make me wanna cry seeing my legs in them, I just wasn’t sure. And Birmingham doesn’t have American Apparel, so you don’t see anyone else wear these up here (not to my knowledge at least), so add the sheer fear factor of being the first to wear something so sexual – not a great combo when you’re already paranoid about your legs!
But I did it.
And the feedback that’s already coming in about these trousers are making me wanna cry – but from happiness. Blogging really is by far the best thing that’s ever happened to me in my life. You guys give me strength and confidence that no one else could ever give me.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
PS – sowwee for the sob story! LOL
