Like a girl's first blush

Holidays are great. There is finally time to do the dishes and hang up clean clothes!

Also I taught myself to knit from a book into the wee hours of the morning. So far I'm making a wobbly rectangle. It's pretty successful so far...
This is my first foray into the dreaded Skinny Jean. I know it's been a trend for quite some time but I was nervous, I've only gone as far as a straight cut. I wasn't sure that they were made for someone built like me but with the boxing day sales still going on I figured now is as good of a time as any to give it a go. I tried to ask the Gentleman Caller's opinion in the dressing rooms but he wasn't helpful. I finally had to resort to chatting up another customer who was waiting for her daughter. I like women who will give an honest opinion!

Glad you jumped on the skinny jean bandwagon! You look really great in them. I think that they can be really slimming when styled right, and you hit the nail on the head here. Those shoes are ADORABLE!
