Bought & Thought
Hola! A funny one for you this week, jogging bottoms! Bet you didn't see that coming.
Ok, so not any old tatty bottoms, but ASOS Barbie Joggers (sale £17). These were part of my 'hmmm, could I possibly wear that to physio?' thing I've had going on lately. I have a ton of t-shirts that I don't wear often enough, so I figured I could wear them with these and the massive pink logo down one leg and ski Barbie on the other were cute and kitsch. Otherwise they are grey with contrasting black ankle cuffs and waistband. Sadly the fit wasn't great on me and I suspect on others too. I found they looked a little tight across the mid-hips, but sagged below and above that. I can kinda see the same happening to the model on the website (and this is the second set of images they released of this garment) which makes me think there's something universally not quite right with them. Had they been in the sale at the time and I'd been buying them for lounging around the house, I would've kept them, but I required something that looked and felt comfortable, so I returned them. Pity, because I love that vintage Barbie image!
