Then And Now #24 - Lee Riders

Lee Jeans - Riders, featured in this 1956 advertisement from a December Life Magazine (I had to scan it in two portions - sorry - see the Riders at bottom left, below):

And another ad - for cowboys! (this one from 1961):
And now:
I even bought a pair - and in a smaller size than I wore previously, I'm happy to say!
I do love blue jeans - especially comfortable ones!

Hi, Heidi Ann, I'm Holly. I've seen you over at Twyla and Lindsey's and thought I'd come visit you!

I've been slooooowly loosing weight and inches since April and I want to buy a pair of those jeans when I declare myself done. But just how flat can I expect my stomach to be after having birthed four, 9 pound + babies? (my last was a 10 pounder!)

Hmmmm??? We'll see.

You have a lot of adorable collections! I'm off to comment on other posts.

I saw the ad for these new jeans and I wanted to run right out and get a pair. Then I look here and see them again with your endorsement. Is someone trying to tell me something? Twyla

Let me know how you like your new jeans. I was thinking about buying a pair. Instantly slimming indeed! Love T
