Today was glorious and lovely! 70F, sunny and the perfect day to hit the thrift store. Haha! I went "shopping" Thursday with my BFF to try and find a perfect pair of dark wash skinny jeans (something the thrift store lacks). I couldn't bring myself to drop $50 on that perfect pair - afterall I spend around that much for bags of stuff while thrifting.
I decided to hit the denim racks at Goodwill with an open mind. My weight has fluctuated a bit over the winter and many of my favorite jeans no longer fit comfortably, including the latest pair I got from Keely!! Nooo! Dresses and skirts are wonderfully forgiving, but I am an equal-opportunity trouser wearer and need my pants. I actually came out today with my absolute favorite fit pair of jeans [Curvy Boho by NY&Co for those interested] that I had back in 2009 - only one size bigger! Huge score there.
In hindsight, I'm not sure I love these trouser jeans. I thought they'd make a good replacement trouser jean for the ones that were too small, but these seem to have a similar issue of a tight waist band and wrinkle if you look at them too hard. I wonder if it's just a commonality of the trouser jean cut.
If you made it through all that - Kudos! Tell me about your favorite jeans.
