it's diva, for this girl!

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!

I will have to check that brand out sometime. I hate the whole clothes buying thing, in my younger days it wasn't so bad, but since I have had kiddos, my brain just doesn't want to spend "extra" time going back and forth to the dressing room.

I found a great pair that I love, at Gap, they are the long and lean style. They have a little stretch to them, which I love.

That last Mitch comment has me itching to say something naughty, but I will refrain and just say can't wait to see you in your awesome new jeans!

The worst pain in life is discovering a hole in the knee of my jeans.

Then I never throw 'em away - I just keep them for gardening chores!

That is so great! Finding great jeans are always a plus! Were you wearing them Tuesday night because I did notice them.

Mahina said...

yep, darilyn, i was wearing them last night! thanks for noticing!

Becca said...

I am the same way. If I find something that I like I have to buy a couple of that item. I have been a big fan of the long and lean Gap jeans for a couple of years cause they are actually long enough for me. Of coarse, I have 4-5 pairs. I am sure that they look FABULOUS on your skinny little size 4 butt!

Bridget said...

I will have to check these out. I am all for the product endorsements on blogs. I don't see how you can't love clothes shopping though with such a little body- everything's got to look good on you!

mitch and i are dying to know!

Sarah said...

I so know how that is. Sounds like a good plan! They are really cute by the way.

Elizabeth said...

Such cute jeans! I hate trying clothes on, and then not liking what I tried on, so I have to get my clothes on and get some more. Most annoying.

Malia said...

I LOVE It Jeans! Didnt you try some when I was there? I have a couple It jeans myself... one are a paor of capris that I got for work a couple of years ago... and I still wear them ALL the time! next post you need to post a picture of you in the jeans.... take a break from being bei=hind the camera and step into the limelight!
Here's my personal problem with shopping.... when youre looking and ready to buy... there's nothing there for you! However... once youre "just looking" and can't afford to get anything... everything is there and fits perfectly! Isn't it ironic? yeah I really do think a little toooooo Ironic... ok sorry to burst into song on you! Congrats on finding the Diva inside er.. on your legs! Love you!

Mahina said...

yes, malia, you did introduce me to it jeans! thank you, thank you, thank you!! you are my fashion guru!

so, bad news i went to nordstrom rack yesterday and they were all out. the lady said they would get more sometime next week! so i will call next time before i go truckin' out there!

i was so sad!!

Bridget said...

Oh, come on Mahina! You're not that naive! I can guess what Merilee was thinking after reading her comment.

Michal said...

there is nothing to turn a mommy into a hot mama like a pair of great fitting, stylishly cut jeans. here here for denim! they are worth all the trying on agony when you find the right pair.
