It was about three years ago that I REALLY started getting into designer jeans. I sold them on Ebay, and rationalized that if I sold several pairs, it wouldn’t hurt to keep a pair for myself here and there. Well yesterday at the office, I ripped a hole right in the booty of my brand new Rock & Republics (bought from a reputable seller on Ebay so I can’t even return them, dangit!) I said to myself, that’s it, at my office we are moving to a new building and I am packing and I’m going out and buying some cheap jeans to move in, no more ripping my expensive denim! So I found myself at Charlotte Russe in the mall and I was actually pleasantly surprised. I got a pair of their Amber Dark Wash Trouser Jeans which are nice for the office and not too low-rise, as well as a pair of their Opal Ultra-Low Rise Jeans (which are actually not that ultra-low on me). In total I spent $50, because they are buy one, get one half off. DEAL. Can’t buy even one pair of my designer jeans for that!
But still, it felt really weird buying non-premium denim for the first time in three years. I almost feel guilty for spending so little and actually liking what I got. But I have to say, they look good!
