Curve ID Jeans

levisAfter struggling for years with a Kim Kardashian-sized body shape, and never finding a pair of jeans that fits me just right, I heard about a line of jeans by Levi's called Curve ID. So, on a whim, I decided to stop in at the Levi's store in San Francisco and give these curvy jeans a try. The first thing that happens when you approach a rack of denim is that a salesperson kindly asks if they can help. And for once, I finally said, "yes." She boldly measured my hips and waist and without telling me my actual measurements (thank you!), and guided me toward the Supreme Curve pile of jeans. (These are the largest of the four curve options, and typically fit a woman who has a 10-inch ratio between her waist and hips. That means little waist, big butt.)

I tried on a pair, and while I had to shimmy to get them on, I was distinctly impressed by their fit. So much so that I bought two pairs and received a third pair as a Christmas present. The dark blue color is a strong jean that can go with anything in your closet. The black is crisp and dressy, and the other two denim washes in this curve selection are equally flexible with your outfit options.

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
