If you're anything like me, finding a good pair of jeans is like the thirteenth labor of Hercules. I have one pair of jeans. And I hate them. Hate them. It's been time for a new pair for awhile, but being the master of procrastination I haven't been serious about my quest. I've been avoiding the low self-esteem, the self-loathing, and frustration that comes complimentary with jeans in a dressing room. But I broke down yesterday because I was at a store at where I've never jean-shopped before. And let me tell you, it's tricky to shop for clothes - and try on clothes - with a little baby in a car seat, and a diaper bag, and a purse, and several pairs of jeans, and the store won't allow carts in the dressing rooms. Seriously!
Back to the point. I found a pair. A gorgeous pair that actually flatters my hard-to-fit petite yet curvy figure. They're slimming. They make my legs look long (especially with heels). They're comfy. Fashionable. They were under $30.
And the best part???
They're a size smaller than I thought I needed. I actually had to go back to the rack to get a smaller size!
