Lucky me! A while ago I was looking for nothing particular and all of a sudden I ran into the perfect pink jeans. I discovered it on Asos and stored it in my mind because of the fond childhood memories it stirred. Indeed it was the signature look of the cute, wide-eyed Annika in the Pippi Longstocking films I used to watch in my brave little girl days (see this video). I decided to wait for the sales to buy it. Sadly, it sold out before I managed to snatch it up. Disappointed, I realised in an aha moment that I might try to find it in another store and after some browsing I did!
That near-miss experience obviously added to my jeans’ enticement, but apart from that it also has the perfect skinny shape (it fits better than any other jeans I own) and it’s made of the perfect, beautiful, thick but flexible type of soft pink cotton. I paired my jeans with a cream coloured knit poncho and tan-coloured accessories such as my grandmother’s vintage snakeskin bag, previously seen here, and my versatile Sam Edelman ankle boots, previously seen here, here and here. As a matter of fact, further bright colours might have made my outfit too girly for my present taste. I wanted somewhat less Annika (“Pippi, I’m scared…”) and somewhat more Pippi (“I am the strongest girl in the world, remember that.”).
The batwomanesque flying poses obviously serve to further increase my Pippi calibre.
