I have known my friend Julia for about two years and in that time not once have I seen her wear a pair of trousers. Lovely skirts and dresses but not a single pair of trousers, jeans or shorts! When I asked her about it, the conversation went a little like this...

Me: Jools, I love your legs and all but why have I never seen you in trousers?
Julia: Oh yeah, I just don't wear them.
Me: Do you own a pair?
Julia: Nope
Me: (faints)

Moments later...

After hours of disbelief (on my part), she managed to convince me that she hadn't worn trousers since 'getting hips' because she hated how they fit. Since then she has stuck to loose fitting dresses and thick black tights.

Now I don't want to get all Gok Wan about her but she does have a good figure and huge basoomas.

My mission this week, of course, is to get that girl over her phobia of trousers and find her the perfect pair. She is the most stubborn woman ever created so this is going to be a challenge. I'll keep blogging to let you know how we get on.
