In response to Andi B Goode's post about wanting to see some Freddies in different colours, I've taken a few pictures of my two pairs to show. I got them a few months ago, but it took some pretty intensive Wii Fit to get into them! I am just a little too big in the hips for my waist size, it seems, as whenever I put them on/take them off the process culminates in what I like to call "The Freddies of Pinewood Dance", which involves me jumping around shaking my hips frantically, sometimes rolling around on the floor crying (just kidding).
Here are my grey utilities:
I'm a bit eehhhhh about these. They're comfortable but I don't really know how to work them (and I don't think the grey was a great choice for me.) Please leave suggestions in the comments about what colour and style of tops to wear with them; I'm at an absolute loss!
I love love love the dungarees I bought in black (have to get around to fixing the button position before I can wear them out properly though - they're just pinned in place currently).
I hope that helps, Andi! Or anyone else on the fence about ordering some of the sale Freddies. My only word of caution is to be careful in ordering if you have a 'vintage figure' (which according to What Katie Did, is a 10 inch difference between the waist and the hips). As the jeans only open slightly in the pocket, it can be very difficult to squeeze them over your hips if you have a larger ratio between the two. Once on, the jeans feel fine - they're not tight on my hips at all. It's just getting the waist past that region that's the difficult part.
