And so, this week 3 on Thursday is the jeans edition!
3) Faded Glory - yes, these are cheapo Wal-Mart jeans. You can find a pair for under $20. They won't last forever but they do clean up well, the waist doesn't do that gappy-thing when you sit or bend (I hate that gappy thing) and when they die, invariably, about 6 months down the road you can just go buy another pair without hurting the wallet too much.
2) American Eagle - yes, the teenager store. Pretend you're buying for your kid if you must. What I love about American Eagle is that there are so many types - skinny, boot cut, skinny-with-relaxed the list goes on. Again, they're not overly expensive so the hit to the wallet is minimal, plus they last a bit longer than the cheaper versions. I have a pair of AE jeans from 2 years ago - and they don't look 2 years old. Love that!
3) Lucky Brands - these jeans will make your wallet cry. Just a little. Unless you plan to buy more than a pair, then get ready for water-works. But they are seriously. good. jeans. They wear well, wash up nicely and don't fade as quickly as some cheaper jeans (they shouldn't they average $100/pair). Plus the sizes are actually true to form - they have skinny sizes, curvy sizes (and the curvies don't do the gap thing - success!), easy, relaxed. I'm a curvy girl, so having a little give is important.
What would you add to the list? Do you have a favorite pair (or brand) of jeans?
