On the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans
Can we talk jeans?
Hold up. Don't give me that look.
I KNOW it's a touchy subject. In fact, I've been shying away from the discussion myself for months because, well, finding the right pair of jeans can kind of suck sometimes. (Can I get an AMEN?)
You know what I'm talking about: Excruciating hours in front of dressing room mirrors. Rises that are too high. Rises that are too low. Fabric that's too snug. Fabric that's too loose. The little bubble phenomenon that pops up in the back.
Frustration. Anger. Exhaustion. The end.
Don't act like you haven't been there.
I think I'm at my breaking point guys. My mainstay pair of jeans have paint all over them (new homeownership!) And thanks to a summer of weight gain and loss, none of my other pairs seem to fit.
I haven't even found comfort in the half a dozen magazines I've got that claim to teach me how to FIND THE PERFECT PAIR! (I fall for it every time)
So I'm turning to you, friends.
Where have YOU found your favorite jeans? Old Navy? Express? Forever 21? H&M? JCPenney? Ann Taylor? The odd thrift store?
I'm open to anything at this point. As long as they're reasonably priced, look good on curvy, non-tall people, and aren't prone to the dreaded bunching in the back, I'm willing to try.
