Like many women out there, I have a HORRIBLE time finding good jeans. Mainly this is because I am not built like a leggy Victoria's Secret Model. While not a total label whore, I do think that you really get what you pay for when it comes to denim, so I am not opposed to designer denim at all. I've usually found that Joe's Jean Provocateur fit suits my
But I needed some new jeans for the recent San Fran vacation (that I promise I will write about soon!!) and was short on time. So on a whim....I picked up a couple pairs of jeans from...
American-freaking-Eagle. I made my purchase online because I don't even think anyone over the age of 15 is allowed to set foot in the store. They arrived at the apartment (in fairly non-descript packaging, thank god) and I gave a "here goes nothing" sigh and tried them on.
And....you guys....it was like some denim fairy godmother had dropped them off especially for me. Great length (important since I am so short), not too low of a rise (important since no one over the age of 25 should wear low rise), solid dark wash that didn't look too chintzy.
But the best part???? The stretch. The sweet, beautiful, I-could-downward-facing-dog-in-these-and-then-take-a-nap-in-them comfort of these jeans is UNbelievable. Actually, it's kind of what I imagine Pajama Jeans must feel like without having to be a total loser and buy Pajama Jeans from the As Seen on TV Store and give them a try myself.
The other great part is how freaking cheap these jeans are -- rarely more than $40 a pair and they are always offering BOGO offers and other coupon codes.
So seriously friends, do yourself a favor and get some American Eagle SUPER STRETCH denim. They have skinnies, bootcut, boyfriend....you name it. Just as long as it says "super stretch" in the name, you are on the right track. Just trust me on this one....you can come back and thank me later.
