I bought 3 pairs of jeans for $60 today! My old ones ripped and I was dreading the chore of finding new ones. On top of the great deal I got, it was even better knowing that it took me all of 30 minutes to get that errand crossed off the list. I normally hate jeans shopping, so this totally brightened my day (The time it took for me to get the jeans thrills me, rather than the jeans I actually purchased. But they're cool too.).

Shopping for jeans is always so tricky- they're too long, too wide, too skinny, too flared, too low, the pockets are all wrong, the color is weird... the list goes on. I like mine straight-legged. Not flared, but not skinny. Which makes it all the more painful looking through all the skinny jeans that are all the rage. If I wanted jeans that fitted like that, I'd buy myself tights.

The whole name-brand jeans thing always baffled me. You can see my fashion-conscious sister rave about the great deals she gets on Hudsons, Sevens, or RocknRepublic jeans... and then there's me. I go for the ones on sale at Charlotte Russe- because they fit and I don't have to get them taken in at the hem due to my shortness. I like finding a good deal as much as the next girl, but if it looks and feels perfectly fine, why bother upgrading to a $150+ pair? As they say, if the shoe fits, wear it(even though they're not top of the line designer ones)!

On another great note: I GOT AN ITOUCH TODAY!!! Late birthday present from the sister, but I'm not complaining. Playing around with it, but no wifi at home, so I'll have to wait to load apps.

I feel your pain! I HATE looking for jeans! So much so that I haven't bought new ones in a looooong time, a few years maybe? haha. Why are they all so very long? But then the shorts are like ankle pants? I feel like I have a very average figure too, so I just don't get it.
