I was on one my regular bargain hunts, when I sniffed out these bellbottom/flare style jeans (excuse the bad pics). I loved the colour of the denim, but not the style. I often feel that short, plump little ladies like me can't really pull off the bellbottom look, plus I dont often wear heels, which means that these bad boys were not only too flarey but also far too long. Anyway, encouraged by the colour and price (£3.00) of these charity shop jeans, I took 'em home and refashioned them into the current trend skinny jean. I just took them up and in (from the outside seam of each leg) and now I wear these natty little troos all the time!
