Fashion Friday - All About Jeans
Currently I own three pairs of jeans I wear regularly. One is a pair of black skinny jeans and the other two are from Target that I bought because I put on weight (yeah, yeah give me this one) and didn't want to drop a lot of money on something I wouldn't be wearing for too long. Now that it's been too long and I've lost a few inches on my hips, I wanted to buy myself a nice pair of jeans to celebrate.
Backtracking a bit, I've never owned a pair of jeans I was head over heels for. This is mainly because growing up we didn't have a lot of money to waste on many "nice" things. We had clothes which I was grateful for but reflecting back at those Levi's makes me wince a bit. When my sister was in high school s he would buy her jeans at Express. Back then, they were pretty amazing and I would always "borrow" them when she wasn't around. There was one distressed pair in particular that I absolutely loved. So I decided to go there a month ago to try on some jeans even though I was warned not to. They have a lot of great colors and styles to choose from. I went to try on a pair in a size that should easily slip on and they wouldn't fit. Goodbye self-esteem!
I hear nothing but good things about Rock and Republic's, 7 for all Mankind, and Guess but I can't bring myself to spend $100+ on one item of clothing. I even try to reason that I will be wearing them until they can no longer be worn in order to convince myself of the investment. It hasn't work yet and I need some help!
Where do you buy your favorite jeans? How does the right pair make you feel?
I know I want to feel like a million bucks when I step out in my next pair.
