Skinny jeans warning

Skninny jeans warning – it seems it deals with more than fashion… I’m sure many read the news, shared by BBC and Huffington Post among others, but I’m sharing it here, too!

My Sunday makeup - I never see many changes, though I vary products and colors!

My Sunday makeup – I never see many changes, though I vary products and colors!

Skinny jeans can damage muscles and nerves, doctors say. A woman was cut out of a pair when her calves ballooned in size, after hours packing for a house move. By evening, she had numb feet, could barely walk due to compartment syndrome, worsened by skinny jeans. After 4 days she was able to walk again. But wait! Don’t ditch skinny jeans: simply avoid staying in the same position for too long!

  1. Okay that’s kind of scary! I used to wear skinny jeans all the time but as I’m getting older I’m staying away from them they are straight uncomfortable for me at least. My body has been changing a lot since I turned 31 and those jeans just don’t feel right anymore.
    I love your makeup hun. so natural!

    • Hello, dear Simera! Thank you for your lovely comment! Yes, our bodies change, and skinny jeans are for the ultra young, I suppose – I could never wear them, I have muscular calves due to roller skating and I could never “enter” such jeans :) But you must be right, they must be uncomfortable, restrictive. I will never know, I am supposing. That information was really scary! Ah, my makeup – I like it as natural as possible, but no matter what I wear, when I look at myself I always think I look the same! I tried a different makeup yesterday and next Monday you will see – I look the same! I must go to a makeup artist, I guess! Hope you have a very nice week! XXX

  2. I hate skinny jeans! I never wear them as I just find them very restrictive and having massive feet makes it hard to get them on. Your gingham skirt is Amazing, I love that print and the shoes are super pretty. Thanks for your understanding re the music, nice to have a blogging friend who similarly appreciates it! The concert was very good, well indeed all of them were fantastic!!!x

    • Hi, dear Kezzie! Thank you for the sweet comment! I also find skinny jeans restrictive, but in fact, my case is that my calves and thighs are too big to such jeans :) Otherwise I am sure I’d have worn them once, but alas, now I see it was better I couldn’t wear them! I would love to see and listen to you playing gamelan! As for me, I listen to “classical music” everyday, and before I sleep I turn it on and read a book as well. I know many will think “how boring”, but that is my taste, as I believe you would like it, too! I am looking forward to one of your concerts, hopefully soon! Kisses!

    • Hi, dear Laila, thank you so much for your sweet comment! I think I am the same – skinny, but not too tight. In my case, I have muscular calves due to roller skating and flamenco, and really very skinny jeans, well, I can’t even “enter” them :) But anyway, what a nightmare for the lady! Thanks for the compliment, I never really know what do with my hair, so I think I did something right now :) You are so sweet! I hope you have a very nice week! XXX

  3. Your makeup looks on point (as usual) and I would love to know what you think about the BareMinerals Powder. And your Outfit!!! Wow I love it, the long skirt is gorgeous on you :)

    • I was missing you, dear Hati! I thought of the blog or how you are, in general! Thank you so much for the lovely comment! The bareMinerals powder is really great, believe me! I really really love it! Hope you have a very beautiful week, dear friend!

  4. Hi Denise! :) I love your outfit. As always, you look so lovely. I love your jaguar brooch and crystal pendant. <3 Thank for sharing that information about skinny jeans. Back in college, I suffered from UTI and my doctor advised me to avoid wearing skinny jeans. Since then, I avoided wearing tight skinny jeans. The shoe museum looks interesting, I will check it out. Have a great week ahead.

    • Hi, dear Shekinah, thanks for sharinh that information! So it does happen, actually! I am glad everything was OK with you, but you see, it is really dangerous! I don’t wear skinny jeans because my calves are muscular, but if I didn’t have them that way I’d probably have already worn such jeans. Thank you for your kind comment and compliments! I hope you have a great week, too!

    • Hello, dear Zubaida, thank you so much for the lovely comment and compliment! I agree with you, when we have to walk a lot and do some hard work, skinny jeans are not recommended! Hope you have a very nice week!

    • Thank you very much, dear! I am glad that you liked the outfit! The makeup I try something different every week, but I think I look always the same :) I hope you have a very nice week!

    • Such a sweet comment, thank you so much, dear Lenya! I normally dress colorful, but sometimes black and white are nice, too! I am so glad that you like dthe look, cause you are always so elegant! Thank you so much for that and I hope you have a very nice week! XXX

    • Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Yes, it seems moving is the answer and stretch fabrich is a good advice, thanks for that! Hope you have a very nice day and I am glad you liked the skirt!

  5. I am not a fan of skinny jeans, it is scary what can happen while wearing them!
    I just love this skirt you have on today, very beautiful! :) Your makeup looks amazing too 😀

    • Yay, that’s great dear, I will now follow you on bloglovin, right now! Thank you so much for your sweet compliment! I liked that fabric, so I drew the skirt the way I wanted and asked my seasmtress to make it :) I hope you have a very nice week!

    • Hello, dear! I think so too, that must have been like a second skin! Well, I prefer airy skirts, so I won’t have that – at least, not because of jeans! Thank you so much for your kind words, hope you have a great week!

  6. Liebe Denise, wie schön Du wieder aussiehst! Mir gefällt alles und Deine Tasche ist einfach ein Traum. Schminken kannst Du Dich wirklich perfekt, da kann ich nur von Dir lernen <3 Während ich Deinen wieder sehr interessanten Post gelesen habe, dachte ich mir, ach wie gut, dass Skinny Jeans schon angeblich bald wieder aus der Mode sind :) Damit hat sich diese Gefahr dann hoffentlich erledigt. Aber ich werde auf jeden Fall an das denken, was Du hier schreibst, wenn ich doch mal wieder eine Skinny Jeans anziehe, wovon ich ehrlich gesagt ausgehe 😉 Ich wünsche Dir eine wunderbare Woche und hoffentlich hattest Du ein einfach nur traumschönes Wochenende.
    Alles Liebe von Rena

    • Danke sehr, immer, liebe Rena, fuer deine immer super suesse Worte! Weisst du, jedes Wochenende versuche ich verschiedene Farbe zu trage – ich meine, Lippenstifft, eyeshadows, etc. Und nun finde ich das ich sehe immer dieselbe, und ich fuehle mich argh! Es ist etwas aergerlich :) So, wenn du diese Koplimente sagst, wow, ich bin schon woieder froh! Die Tasche ist gut, alles passt darein :) Ich habe es dir gesagt, dass ich an dich gedacht habe! So, ich trage keine skinny jeans, und warum? Hahaha, zu dicke Oberschenkeln :) Einfach zu dicke Beine, aber jetzt in ich froh – solches Problem wie die Frau hat ich nicht gehabt. Das ist schrecklich! Ja, mein Wochenende war OK – leider habe ich1 Kilo zugenommen, hahaha, aber bald ich werde das wieder verlieren :) Ich hoffe, auch, dass du ein schoenes Wochenende gehabt hast und eine schoene neue Woche jetzt hast! Liebe Gruesse!

    • Hi, dear Colleen! Thank you for the nice comment and compliment! I like comfortable clothes, not that skinny jeans are not, only that I have muscular calves due to roller skating for decades and fat thighs anyway, so skinny jeans were a no-no for me – purely because I never could “enter” one :) I will definitely read your article! Thanks for sharing it! Well, I would say “great minds think alike”, but I am humble (no joke :) But I can say that you are a great mind! Hope you have a very nice week!

  7. Just hopped over from Miss Mosh Makeup where she did a feature post on you! And holy cow, didn’t know that about skinny jeans, I love them and find them comfortable but I think it’s due to the natural shape of my legs. I think your makeup looks really lovely and natural and it suits you really well. xx

    • Hello, Shireen! What for a beautiful name you have! And you look beautiful as well, I have just seen – as I have to study for an exam tomorrow, I will read your post being calmer tomorrow morning! Thank you so much for your lovely comment – the makeup, I like it natural, yes, but every weekend I try new color of eyeshadows and I find out that I always look the same! I need a makeup artist for some advice :) I was very amazed by the skinny jeans news – but I think that was extreme… as I said, don’t ditch them, just don’t stay many hours sat! Thank you again for the lovely comment! Hope you have a great week! XXX

  8. Ha! That Bata shoe museum is where I live : ) I’ve been several times. It is very interesting to visit.

    I heard about that women and her skinny jeans. Terrible.

    That is quite the bag you’re toting there! I love the midi gingham skirt. Very chic and I bet it goes with everything.

    bisous
    Suzanne

    • Thank you so much, dear Suzanne! Wow, since I got to know about BATA I am crazy about knowing it – if I go, I will let you know! Lucky lucky, that you know it! Yes, the skinny jeans thing was awful – I can’t wear skinny jeans, for the same reason I told you I can’t really wear culottes – I look terrible! But I thought of telling that is can be a bit dangerous… I don’t know! Thank you so much for the compliments! I drew the skirt and took the fabric to the seamstress – it’s very simple, no need of great drawing skills, but I have to say it’s comfortable, so I like it! Hope you have a very nice week! Bisous!

    • I think you will be Ok, dear Maria! The research says people only have to move around, not staying in the same position for hours, like the girl was! Thank you for your kind comment! I hope you have a very nice week!

    • Thank you so much, dear! I recommend that bronzer – actually, it’s a highlighter, you won’t look tanned, I can say. But it will highlight cheeks, and it’s a nice color! I am glad that you liked it! Hope you have a very nice week!

    • Thank you very much for the sweet comment and compliment, dear! I like midi skirts very much and that one had a nice pattern and was so comfortable! Hope you have a very nice day and week!

    • Thank you so much, dear Lauren Blair! So, it happened before, I didn’t know! It means, skinny jeans are really a bit dangerous… well, let’s hope for the best! Thank you too for the nice compliment! Hope you have a very nice day! XXX

  9. Oh dear… that’s kind of a horror story on skinny jeans! Ah! I hope that never happens to me although I find that I am not usually too uncomfortable in them. I guess, find a size that isn’t too tight on you and you should be good!
    Anyway, I love your outfit. I wish I could rock a midi skirt like yours-you look so sweet. Loved how you dressed up the gray colored outfit to make it so lovely and cute :)
    Olivia | Her Name Was Celebration

    • Thank you so much for the lovely comment, dear Olivia! I think that it happen to the lady with the skinny jeans, because she was many hours in the same position. So don’t worry, keep on moving and all will be OK! It’s just ONE story out of many people who wear skinny jeans, so I think it doesn’t happen very often :) Thank you so much for the compliment of the skirt! I like midi skirts very much or maxi ones! Hope you have a very nice day!

    • Thank you, dear Monica, for your sweet comment! I do the same, but I must confess, just because skinny jeans don’t fit me :) But in a way, that turned to be good! Thank you for the compliment, I am a shoe-lover :) But we all are :) Hope you have a very nice week! XXX

  10. Hi Denise, hahaha I had no idea they were so dangerous. I bought some treggings yesterday (look like skinny jeans). They are super comfy. I bet I could pack all day and wouldn’t suffer at all. Frankly I don’t like uncomfy skinny jeans. I own a few pairs but never wear them. Next time I clean out my closet they’ll go to the charity. You look super adorable Denise. I looooove your skirt. Omg you designed it. It’s perfect. Also love the bag (who doesn’t!) and the cute jaguar brooch. Wish you a wonderful Tuesday sweetheart!!

    xx

    • Hello, dear, thank you so much for the nice comment and sharing information about the jeans! I think that treggings are more comfortable, so no problems wearing them. I think that skinny jeans may be comfortable as well, if they have a bit more of stretch in the fabric. I am like you, comfort is top of my list! You won’t see me these days in uncomfortable clothes or shoes just to look good, but in the past I have done that, I confess! Maybe now I don’t look good anymore :) But comfortable :) Ah, the skirt is so easy, no one needs to be very good on drawing to have it – the seamstress has more merits, but thank you for your lovely words! Hope you too have a great day! XXX

    • Ciao, carina Maggie! Tante grazie per le dolce parole! Mi piace gonna cosi, midi :) E vero, non sapeva, ma credo essere romantica :) Grazie tanto per le carine parole, sei sempre super dolce! Baci e ti auguro una bella settimana!

    • Hi, dear Monica! Thank you for your comment, and I agree with you – in the past, I would be one of the women wearing super uncomfortable high heels, just to be “nice”. Now, as you said, what women do for fashion… so now I am one that dresses down, and it’s OK, I want comfort! The skinny jeans story is scary! Hope you have a very nice week!

  11. Ciao cara Denise! Anche stavolta sei riuscita a trovare un notizia insolita ed interessante, ma quello che è successo sembra incredibile! Io li metto spesso i jeans skinny ma non ho mai avuto problemi anche se sono stata seduta a lungo… :)
    Mi piace molto anche il tuo look, è chic e trendy e la gonna è fantastica!Ma quello che mi piace di pù è il tuo primo piano: hai un viso bellissimo e solare (sei davvero brava con il make up!) e dei capelli stupendi! 😀

    PS: grazie per avermi avvertita sul pagamento del post sponsorizzato, ma ormai l’ho fatta, incrociamo le dita e speriamo bene! ;D
    Baci!

    • Carina S., che gioia sempre leggere le tue parole, come sei carina! Sono molto felice d’averti “conosciuto”, peccato non sono andata a Londra questo anno (ancora no :) si fosse mi piacerebbe averti visto a Londra, ma forse un giorno nella bella Italia (mi piace mooolto! Che bello paese!) Si, la skinny jeans puo essere pericolosi, ma mi sembra si la persona non fa niente, dovremmo fare qualcosa, credo io. Mi sembra che la donna e stata seduta per 4 ore! Va bene, spero di non aver questo problema, per te e per me e per nessuno! Grazie tante per i complementi, sempre tanto carina! Ho un po di vergigna :) Lo sai, a vece sono un po timida :) Ah, le site che non pagano – hanno scritto molte email per me, con cattive parole, orribile! Spero che con te tutto sia bene con loro! Baci!

    • Hi, dear June, thank you so much for the sweet compliment! Well, I bought a pair of skinny jeans, but I have “massive legs”, I think (very critical towards myself :), so I ordered the jeans in a bigger size and they look a bit baggy – the right thing, cause they are comfortable then! Well done! Hope you have a great day, dear June! XXX

    • Hi, dear Vanessa, your comments always make my day brighter, you are so sweet! I also hope you are fine and I am looking forward to seeing beautiful outfits on your blog, son! Kisses!

    • Ciao, carina Paola! Si si, questa notizia e terribilie e incredibile, ma sembra che e sucesso questo con la donna d’il skinny jeans! Grazie tante per le tue parole, mi sento felice che ti hai piaciuto la gonna! Sono curiosa d’andare al museo, scarpe sempre ed una cosa benissima :) Ti auguro una bella giornata, carina Paola! Baci!

  12. Well, I do like my skinny jeans, but it’s never good to wear the same thing all the time, and most importantly if they are that tight, wow. I don’t think my skinnys have ever been that tight, and if you’re moving you should be very comfortable anyway, so perhaps a boyfriend jean would have been better. :-) I love your makeup choices, you look great.

    • Thank you very much, so sweet compliments! Well, yes, I thought “how tight were those jeans, to provoke that condition?” They must have been like a second skin, really too tight! It’s interesting, I have a pair of skinny jeans, but I bought it one size bigger and didn’t want to send it back (it was online). Then they are kind of big, so not really skinny, but sooo comfortable! Thank you again for the sweet comment, I hope you have a nice day!

    • Thank you so much for the kind comment, dear Vishakha! Yes, the skinny jeans thing got viral :) I even thought if I should write about it, but finally I thought, well, it’s a warning… can only do good things (I hope!) Thank you so much for the lovely compliment, I feel so honored! Hope you have a very nice day!

  13. Olá Denise, tudo bem?

    Eu já tinha visto essa notícia do jeans skinny e fiquei surpresa como pode acontecer uma coisa dessas né? Acho que o certo é evitarmos peças assim tão apertadas e por tanto tempo, ainda mais quando estamos fazendo alguma atividade, como foi o caso dela, que estava trabalhando em sua mudança. E como sempre você está muito bonita e com um elegante visual!! Adorei o seu sapato, é simplesmente lindo!!!
    Beijos

    • Oi, querida Lilly! Pois eh, que horror! Fiquei chocada com a noticia, mas enfim, tambem nao se pode achar que vai acontecer com todas… de qualquer forma, aconteceu comigo mais ou menos – e nem era um tao skinny jeans assim, porque minhas pernas sao grossas e nao entram bem em skinny jeans :) Mas era mais ou menos e caminhei, caminhei, quando vi meus pes e tornozelos estavam do tamanho de um paozinho frances, eh serio! Foi em janeiro deste ano! Obrigada pelo seu elogio, vice eh sempre tao bondosa e amavel comigo! Quero muito te conhecer! Um beijao!

    • You are so right, dear Anna! I ordered some jeans that looked like skinny jeans, but one size bigger – true, I have to wear them with a tight belt, but then it feels so much more comfortable! Thank you so much for your kind comment! Yes, you know I love skirts! Glad you like it!

  14. Happy Wednesday, lovely! YOU look incredible! Seriously love stopping by your blog! I’ve commented before BUT I had to stop by again! Thank you for your lovely comments as well, you are always so sweet! Means so much!
    I truly hope this day is as beautiful as you are, stunning lady!
    Sending you much love!!!
    xoxo, Vanessa

    • Dear Vanessa, thank you sooo much again, for your beautiful comments! I am sure that you are such a great girl, so happy, so sweet! I am – honestly – very glad that we got to “meet” each other, because I can say the same: your sweet comments really mean a lot to me! I always look forward to seeing your beautiful pictures! Hope you have a very nice day and July! Kisses!

  15. my jeans can be skinny but then again not too skinny. they must be comfortable, not too tight. clothes should always be comfy I think. I usually give away everything that doesn’t feel right on me. we also had that article in Estonian newspapers and I thought “wow, can someone really do that to herself? didn’t she feel something was wrong?”. people are very different, that’s a fact. anyway, once again I love your outfit. that skirt with the fancy Chanel bag, they look fabulous together. haha and of course I wish I had that bag in my own wardrobe as well 😛 oh and your unique jewellery looks beautiful too. but when it comes to makeup I have nothing helpful to say since my knowledge starts and ends with mascara and concealer and that’s it. once again I gave away pretty much every makeup product I owned but didn’t use. anyway, I hope your July has had a beautiful start and you’re enjoying the summer. take care, dear Denise!

    • Thank you so much, dear Maiken, always so sweet! I agree with you, we should feel comfortable – I certainly do, but I confess that up to a few years ago I wore some things that were not that comfortable, just to look “nice” :) But now I don’t do this anymore, I just like being comfortable! You know, I feel a bit ashamed writing about the Chanel bag. For me it’s a bag that is big and all can go inside. I even write it small below the pictures, not like other blogs that state item by item in a big way – nothing against it, I even like it, but I simply couldn’t do that. Ah, makeup! I know, you told me you don’t wear it, but you are naturally beautiful, believe me – I need a bit more to look OK! Still, I try to be as natural as possible, not with thick layers. And I like wearing a foundation that is darker than my skin, cause I read that it looks friendlier :) Hope your July is too veeeery beautiful, dear Maiken, and I am looking forward to seeing your vacations pictures!

  16. Fabulous outfit! I love the placement of your brooch and the point of the vee on your sweater. That is such a fresh, beautiful take on the classic use of a cameo (or other pin) at the neckline. You have such a creative, awesome fashion sense, my dear friend.

    Big hugs and many sincere thanks for your touching, lovely comment on yesterday’s Vintage Link Love post.

    Joyful July wishes to you!
    ♥ Jessica

    • Hello, dear Jessica! I am the one to say thanks for your always sweet comments! I really feel very honored! All I say is honest! And being honest I tell you why I place brooches at the neckline :) I don’t like when even a small piece of my lap shows :) I know, it’s silly, but I am this way :) Thank you so much again for the lovely comment and now enjoy the national day! Kisses and I also hope you have a beautiful month!

    • Hi, dear Jessica! Thank you for your always so sweet compliments! Yes, I guess we are all going to be careful about skinny jeans from now on! I don’t wear them much, or even never, because my legs are a bit too “fat” to “enter” skinny jeans! (But I always envied who could :) I love gingham, too, it’s so… summery! Hope you have a very nice day! XXX

    • Thank you so much, dear, such a sweet comment! I can see you wear more skirts and I think it’s very good! I do prefer skirts too, and my jeans are kind of “loose” :) So we are free of danger :) Hope you have a very nice weekend!

  17. I heard a radio report on this skinny jeans story. It scared me to death, as I’d bought two pairs of them just the day before. This woman was bending down and doing lots of hard physical work while wearing them though. I only wear mine to pop around in, such as walking to and from the shops, and wearing them on an evening out. I wouldn’t do the housework in them, lol! But it is good to be made aware of potential dangers like this. Clearly we need to be sensible when it comes to what we put our bodies through. I can’t bring myself to ditch the skinny jeans, I’m afraid Denise, but the warning is noted. I’m not quite sure how tight this Australian woman’s jeans were, and I guess that is an important point. Not all skinny jeans are going to be the same ‘skinnyness’, if you get my drift. Loving the makeup selection you’ve put together here. I like Bare Minerals loose powders a lot. You’ve reminded me to go get their summer powder, which comes with a sun protection SPF. Hugs, Tracey xx

    • Hi, dear Tracey! You are right, she was doing kind of extreme housework and bending, so that’s why it happened. Also, you are right again, we don’t know the kind of jeans she was wearing – people are recommending skinny jeans with more stretch. Nooo, I said don’t ditch the skinny jeans, especially when you bought 2 pairs now! I know you are sensible, by the comments you write and your posts! So I know you won’t do what she did and so, go on wearing the skinny jeans! I don’t wear them simply because they don’t fit me – yes, I barely can enter a pair, I have fat thighs :) But I like them, they are beautiful! That’s great that you told me about bareMinerals with sun protection SPF – I always prefer products that way! Thank you so much for your sweet comment, dear Tracey! Hope you have a very nice weekend! Hugs and kisses!

    • Es verdad, el vichy se mucho ahora! Me encantan faldas, pero todo, como camisas, bolsos, zapatos tambien, porque no :) Gracias por tus palabras. espero que tengas un lindo fin de semana!

    • Hi, dear Steffy! I love gingham as well, I am looking for more pieces now! Oh, no, don’t worry very much about skinny jeans… just now we know we should move a bit more, not only being sat for hours wearing them! Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

    • Thank you so much, dear Agnes! I wanted to change a bit, I was a bit too full of colorful outfits :) I may wear more black and white from now on! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    • Hi, dear Kashaya, nooo, don’t even think of that, you will be fine – now we know we have to move a bit more when wearing skinny jeans! Thank you for your sweet comment! I hope you have a very beautiful weekend!

  18. Si! Escuché estas noticias, y la verdad es que me preocupé un poco ya que yo uso bastante los skinny jeans 😮 Creo que como todo, su uso en exceso es perjudicial, y en el caso de estos jeans la calidad del denim con el que están hechos también es un factor de gran importancia; escuché que tiene que tener spandex para que la piel no esté tan oprimida y que pueda “respirar”.
    En cuanto a tu look, como siempre estás bellísima, desde el perfecto maquillaje hasta esos infartantes zapatos, todo! El colgante de gatito que está al final me encantó también. <333

    • Gracias, querida Deborah! Es verdad, oi tambien que si los jeans son stretch, eso es o seria mejor para las piernas. Asi que tenemos que ver bien, que tela son los jeans! Muchas gracias por tus palabras, somos todas shoe-lovers, lo se! Espero que tengas un lindo fin de semana! XXX

    • Oh, really? So it was all true, if you also feel your legs swollen sometimes! Thank you for sharing this and you kind comment, I will really be careful with very tight clothes, though for a long time I wear “baggy” ones, but we never know!

  19. Thank you for this information, dear Denise, to be honest I really like skinny jeans, but I try to not wear them all of the times – luckily I’m more into dresses and skirts, so it’s great alternative for the skinny trousers as well! And this story is so sad, poor girl! What about you,dear Denise, I love your shiny sweater, you look so good in shades of gray! :) Have a great day, Denise!

    http://crafty-zone.blogspot.com/

    • Thank you so much, dear Ivonne! I wanted to change a bit from the very colorful outfits :) In fact, there was a time in my life that I only wore black, all, bags, pants, skirts, all, for 9 months in a row. Everyday! But people change and maybe I am changing again :) I don’t wear skinny jeans, simply because they don’t fit me :) But I thought of sharing that because I know many people love skinny jeans! (I like them too, they just don’t fit me :( I hope you have a great weekend, dear Ivonne!

  20. Ooh you’re so right about skin jeans. They’re may look great on us but they aren’t comfy as much as leggings:). Im not often wears skin jeans! I like to buy the pairs those stretching out kind of fabric:). According to your makeups and look:). I love your midi skirt with a checked print is even need:). The bag is gorgeous. You look is divinely:). You always have the unique pieces wardrobe:). Love your wardrobe:).

    I wish you a happy and relax Friday:) and ahead through upcoming weekend:).

    • Thank you soooo much, dear Tanya, such a sweet comment! I am in fact a “collector” :) I donate many things, but many I don’t, so things pile up for some years as a collection :) But it’s not bad, because fashion always “come back” :) The skirt is new, in fact, but the top I must have for 15 years :) Thank you sooo much again, for always sending me so sweet compliments and words! You are amazing! I hope you have a very beautiful weekend and that July and the week ahead is awesome! Kisses!

  21. Hi Denise!
    I saw that , someone posted about it on facebook and it was kinda scary! I actually had something similar happen to me which is why i got so scared, I was sitting at my desk at work for a while and I noticed my leg started hurting because of the way I had it bent (just normal sitting in a chair, under my knee!) and it freaked me out, I was scared I hurt my nerves or blood vessels because of the pants! of course I am fine and after reading that article im trying to not stay in the same position for too long when wearing skinny jeans!
    love your outfit btw, and your makeup looks flawless! thanks for sharing the products! 😀
    Have a great weekend! xo

    • Oh my word, dear Andrea, so it really can happen, the article was correct! You noticed that happening, I am so glad you are right and you noticed that soon! I don’t wear skinny jeans merely because I have kind of muscular calves due to years of roller skating and flamenco, but I like the style of the jeans and always wanted to wear them! I am now kind of happy that I couldn’t! Thank you so much for sharing this information, people can now see it is really harmful! Hope you have a very nice week – and ah, thaaaank you for the compliments, I feel always so honored! XXX

    • Hi, dear Anouk! Thank you for your comment! I guess you are right – in the beginning we are scared, then things get back to normal :) I think the “secret” is to move a bit, not sitting for hours wearing skinny jeans! Hope you have a nice weekend!

    • Thank you, dear Vanessa, you really made my day! Saturdays are normally calm, thankfully :) I had a very busy week, so I really needed such a Saturday :) I hop you have a very beautiful evening and Sunday, enjoy all with you beautiful smile! XXX

    • Hi, dear Aimee! I thank you so much for your sweet comment! Yes, I was scared by the skinny jeans news! But I think it’s OK if we wear it and move more, not only sitting down! Hope you have a great day!

  22. Hello Denise!
    You look stunning in that outfit 😀
    This is why I never wear skinny jeans and loving skirt to the death because skinny jeans are definitely UNCOMFY like seriously it tortured my thighs alot. Because of that, I always thinks that it must be bad for health and its true. Thank god I hate skinny jeans lol

    • Hello, Amfiba, thank you so much for your lovely comment and sharing your experience with me! I have the same feeling – skinny jeans are so tight for me, or maybe my thighs are so thick for skinny jeans, but anyway it is good that it’s this way, so I won’t have that problem, that the lady had! Thank you again for your compliment, that was very sweet! I hope you have a very nice week!

    • Thank you so much, dear Sarah! I am glad you liked to know about that! I thought it would be kind of important :) Thank you for your lovely compliment, you are so sweet! Hope you have a very nice day!

  23. I dont love to be in skinny jeans. This totally confines you and you are not at your self. I love to be in skirts and feel free. Thanks for sharing the post with us dear. Keep blogging!

    • Thank you so much, dear Anshulika! I feel the same, I prefer skirts, dresses, or jeans that you can feel free! I think comfort is something that us more important to us, though people who wear skinny jeans say they are comfy – well, they are too tight for me :) Hope you have a very nice week!

  24. Heey Denise 😀

    Ommmg! That’s just sad for me because I love wearing skinny jeans 😮 I still do.. :$ Uhmm well… Haha thanks for heads up though. But the last phrase made me happy. haha 😛 Yeah I move a lot so that’s not a problem for me haha

    Ouuh as usual, you are just soo prettty with your amazing outfits 😀 Damn those shoes *.* I really like your look :)

    • Thank you so much, dear Heena, always so nice to me! Yes, don’t worry about the jeans – you said you move a lot, so you will be OK! And thank you for so lovely compliments! I like shoes very much, but well, who doesn’t! I hope you have a very lovely week!

  25. Qué terrible lo que le ocurrió a esa mujer, escuché esto en las noticias. Hay que tener cuidado y no abusar de los pantalones tan ajustados, pero sobre todo, no permanecer tanto tiempo en esa posición con las piernas dobladas. Por suerte ella se recuperó!
    Me gustó mucho tu colgante! Está bello y el maquillaje, me encanta verlo! Aunque la verdad soy floja para usar muchas cosas. Maquillarse es jn arte también!
    Un beso y que comiences bien tu semana!

    • Hola, querida Ale! Si, es verdad, me asuste tambien con esa noticia de la mujer “del skinny jeans” :) Bueno, la verdad es que es muy ajustado y yo no logro ni entrar en eses jeans :) Asi que yo no tendre este problema y espero que a ti tampoco pase eso! Yo solo uso esas cosas todas cuando vou a “fotografiar” un look. Cuando salgo para la clase de musica en college voy con gloss, un eyeliner, mascara y blush, a veces. No uso blush siempre. Pero como tengo piel sensible, esas cosas de Dior y Chanel son las indicadas. Gracias por tus siempre dulces palabras, eres siempre super dulce! Besos y una linda semana para ti!

  26. I heard about that! I practically live in skinny jeans, so this was a little scary for me! Mine are super soft and pliable though, and I never wear them for strenuous activities, so I should be ok right? Anyways, I’ve definitely started wearing boyfriend jeans a lot more.

    • Hello, dear Angelina! I think you don’t have to worry about the news, it’s just like you said – you move, you don’t do loads of exercising while wearing jeans! So, don’t worry! Thank you so much for the lovely comment, I hope you have a very nice week!

    • Hello, dear Tina! I am so glad that you liked the makeup and skirt! Thank you for your sweet words! In fact, I agree with you about skinny jeans! I don’t wear them, but because I used to roller skate for years, so just imagine the muscles of my calves – no skinny jeans fit :) But that is good, in a way – so I really wear comfortable outfits, like you! Hope you have a very beautiful week! Hugs and kisses!

    • Thank you so much for your comment! I agree with you, skinny jeans tend to be comfortable and only one lady in the news is not enough to be scared = just to know that maybe when wearing skinny jeans one needs to move more, like the doctors said! Thank you again so much for the kind comment, I hope you have a lovely day!

    • Hi, Priscilla! Yes, it seems that skinny jeans in that situation (sitting for hours) were not very good, but othr than that, when moving, they are OK! Thank you for your lovely comment, hope you have a nice weekend!

  27. I read that article, but really how skinny those jeans were? If they’re so tight they could cut your blood circulation, you shouldn’t be wearing them. There’s skinny and there’s too skinny. But of course even skinny jeans shouldn’t be worn for so many hours, especially to do such things.
    You look amazing! Love your make up and your bag!

    • Thank you very much, dear M.! I think the woman just spent too many hours sitting down, and then it happened… we even don’t know whether all is true, news normally manipulate us :) But if so, she learned a lesson :) Thank you for your compliment, I hope you have a very nice weekend!
