i found it! the perfect fit!
i don't know how it is for you when you go shopping for new jeans, but for me it is a nightmare that i try to avoid. this is how it goes for me...
i go to store x and load up my cart with a gazillion and one pairs of jeans each in 2different sizes because i don't know what size i am anymore! then i proceed to the changing room where i am told that i can only take 8 items in at one time. so begins the long process of finding the perfect pair of jeans. after about 40+ minutes of getting undressed, trying on the 8 pairs of jeans, then putting my gym pants back on so i can go back out to exchange the 8 unflattering pair of jeans for the next 8 pair that i have high hopes for, and repeat about 20 times, i leave the store empty handed! yup! that was a big fat waste of my time! now can you see why i try to avoid this nightmare?!
but there comes a point in a girls life when she needs to take some pride in how she looks and stop going to the grocery store wearing her gym clothes or her "boring jeans", as my sweet, kind sister has called what i wear.
so, i steeled myself and head to nordstrom rack to live out my nightmare. after experiencing the above shenanigans, i reluctantly settle for 2 pairs of jeans and take them home. another thing about me when it comes to new clothes, since i don't buy them for myself very often, i leave the tags on for a week and wear the clothes around the house before i really decide if i will keep them (and sometimes i even go to church with the tag hanging out the back like i did this past sunday, thanks lynn for telling me!). much of the time i end up returning them! i know, i am a nut case!
after wearing these for a week i fell in love with the way they fit! i'm still trying to decide if i like the other pair that i brought home, but these diva it jeans are my new love! and mitch is lovin' me in them! hehe!
success! sweet success! love it!
so, now i am going to raid the nordsrtom rack and buy up every pair of diva it jeans in my size that i can find!! when you find a good thing you have to repeat it, or in this case, buy them all! wish me luck!
