Channeling Marilyn’s Joy this weekend!
Everyone had a pair.
Her thighs didn’t fit and if they did the waist was huge.
Serious quad muscles.
Funny because everyone else had trouble with the waist.
We are talking 4th grade…and beyond.
dievca has never owned a pair of Levis Jeans.
Until this weekend.
Let dievca explain.
As an athlete growing up in the 1970’s/1980’s, Levis Jeans weren’t cut for larger thighs. No stretch and too large of waists. So, dievca never really looked at the options that flowed in during the later years. Look, she barely could wear the 1980’s/1990’s Guess Jeans and they weren’t comfortable, especially when you had to zip them at the ankles to get them over your feet.
Back to Levis Jeans…
dievca never tried on the “curvy” ones, nor any iteration of the 501 blues. she avoided Levis and found friendliness of fit with J Brand, Current/Elliott and Rag & Bone.
Until she was shopping in a Wal-Mart store~
There aren’t any Wal-Marts in Manhattan.
Renting a car to get to a funeral provides an opportunity to bulk shop. Especially for those items that are heavy: Laundry Detergent, Oxyclean, canned good, bottled juices, etc. As dievca traversed the store she passed the Men’s clothing section. There, looking her straight in the eye, were stands of Levis Signature FLEX straight slim leg Men’s jeans. They looked like they would fit. They had 1% elastane. They were $21.95.
dievca had a dress on from the Funeral, she put the jeans on underneath the dress and then searched the store to find a mirror. Bingo! – there was one in the home goods section.
They fit well!
At $21.95, if dievca decides she doesn’t like them – it won’t break the bank.
So, after 30+ years – dievca now owns a pair of Levis Jeans…and her thighs fit.
Will wonders will never Cease!
So….what’s your story with Blue Jeans? XO
“Monday’s child is fair of face…”
by Mother Goose
Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace;
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go;
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for its living;
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
Seriously, if you were born on a Wednesday — this is not the verse to listen to~
dievca was born on a:
Early evening. Something about her Dad watching a College Football game at the neighbors and being annoyed that it was time…

The artist, Laurie Simmons, was fascinated with the Dancing Cigarettes in TV Commercials of the past which drew her into developing and photographing inanimate objects with legs: Camera, Guns, Cakes, Perfume Bottles and an Accordion. “Walking Objects’ She has pieces in the permanent collection of MoMA.
After taking a break from legs, Ms. Simmons returned, at the request of NY Magazine’s-The Cut, with the fabulous legs of the cast from Chicago to show-off a little fashion from 2016.
You can see the fun and sexy video to “Sway” here.
(Note: video worked better in Microsoft Edge than Google Chrome)
dievca is motivate to work on her leg definition all summer — seriously sexy.
This could be interesting for presentation or an absolute disaster…

Apparently it is in the 2017 Music Festival clothing kit~
