my oh my, erin how do you do it?

as some of you may already know, I am lucky enough to work in my local topshop, which means that while working and dancing about with the other lovely girls who work there, I spend much of my time plotting which items I'll buy with my seasonal allowance.

we get ours in a weeks time and I am so very excited.


so I laughed a little wearily when I saw this picture of erin wearing these trousers, as after eyeing them up for weeks, I finally tried them on the other day, and they looked rather shiteous on me.

put it this way, you have to be very dedicated at shaving your legs and as the slits go up so high, new blemishes appear that even the teeniest of mini skirts never dared show. and overall i ended up looking like the ex girlfriend of edward scissorhands (not in a good way, because I know how appealing that sounds) after she has had a comfort food binge.

without sounding highly up my own arse, my legs are my favourite part as they're rather slim and long, and so, I would like to know, Erin, enlighten me, how on earth did you pull these off?

that is all.

Oh gosh, I wish I could pull those off. She looks amazing in them though. Although my mother would never let me wear those in public, she doesn't even like hollister's ripped/bleached jeans.

I went as far to rip up my own pair thinking it was a fun DIY project. It's safe to say I'll be disposing of those jeans.
So I'd like to know how she does it too.....

WendyB said...

I don't really think she pulls them off. There's something that doesn't look right to me.

Lisa said...

elisabeth said...

i bet she had them altered!!
i work in topshop as well (uniform begins this sunday, hooray!) and i tried them on, they're really baggy at the hips and tight at the ankles, strange!
however they did look better with tights underneath!

Kat said...

ah how is wish i worked in my local topshop...

i think erin just dropped off some cloud somewhere!!

Miss Woo said...

I tried those on too and they are cut in such a weird shape, or maybe I'm just fat, haha. Its a mystery how Erin does it.

Fashion Tidbits said...

well...she is Erin Wasson..enough said :)

Miss at la Playa said...

I have to try them on...

The Clothes Horse said...

I just got shivers imagining some of the women who will try to pull these off...

claire said...

i did find that with my own ripped jeans i.e. the shaven legs issue! just not practical in winter, my leggys are so pale too!

Juliet said...

I could not do that. Though Erin is just being her. She does things that we else can't.

Lee Jones said...

oh erin, she's so beautiful she could pull of anything.

Stompface said...

Oh gosh, I wish I could pull them off too. They are so hot.

she pulls them off because...well..she's Erin!

Tinsley said...

haha one of the greatest posts of yours yet. and she looks great doesnt she?

Alya said...

They probably don't look as bad as you think.. But if you really don't like them on you, you can always DIY on some old pair of skinnies.

May Kasahara said...

I would probably snag myself on EVERYTHING and fall down every 10 minutes ♥

but it'd be worth it right?

susie_bubble said...

The Erin Wasson factor helps a lot.... I'm wearing my DIY ones over tights...no way am I showing my bruises and knobbly knees....

Paloma said...

haha... I hadn't thought of that dilemma of takinf them off before :D
