I think Lykke Li and I probably shouldn't get married. Which is a shame, because I imagine I'm just her type.



Sorry for the poor quality picture - if you can't read it, it represents a privileged glimpse into the philosophy of Lykke Li; who is, apparently, one of Sweden's leading Slight Curves. The creed by which she lives is as follows: "I believe life's too short for compromises and bad fitting jeans." 

As it happens, I was approached to do this ad first - I would have been identified as a Bulgy Slab. The quote I submitted was "I believe that life is impossible without compromises, and indeed that developing the art of compromise, with others and one's self, is life's most vital skill; but that what life is far, far too short for is having a 'custom jeans fitting at a Levi's store near you'."

 I never heard back.

As a Grand Master Blimp, I believe I've compromised far too much in my life to date, and insist that Levi's make jeans in sizes other than Emaciated Shrew and chuck me a few free pairs into the bargain since I can't even afford Primark bargain basement "jeggings", never mind their poncey ethoswear.

Ahem. Anyway. I'm sure she's lovely. Also, I'm not nearly as angry a person as that's made me sound. Valium, anyone? :)

Maybe you're her type but your jeans could not get along.

I don't know, what's wrong with those ads! In Poland one of the clothing company has campaign called "Beautiful Story". The ads show horridly skinny, very posh models with Very Wise Thougts showing that they had a hard time and they succeeded like: "In highschool they were calling me 'stick insect'. My first thought was: "And yet nobody diagnosed anorexia." Okay, Very Angry Rant is over ;)

I like your entries, they always make me smile ;D

In 1885, jeans cost $1.50 in the trading store. You never had to wash them and they stood up in the corner on their own if you peeled them off. They looked great with a dress shirt or a leather duster. After a month or so, how your ass looked in your jeans wouldn't be the first thing your friends noticed.

I'll take the comfy ones please, with the compromising waist

I don't think that girl has ever met a pair of "bad fitting" jeans in her life.

Jeans tend to be discriminatory towards people with extra large glutes. I buy men's jeans one size too large and wear it with a belt. :/

This gentleman certainly disapproves.

I liked your quote. Honesty doesn't always pay it seems.

In getting asked: "Does my ass look fat in these jeans?"
I always reply with: "Aaaw, hun, you always look fat."
...maybe that's why I'm still single?
