I admit it, buying jeans is right up there with buying a swimsuit on my Avoid Like the Plague to-do list!
After having a baby 4 months ago, it had fallen even lower, but I can’t wear the same yoga pants every Saturday and Sunday. I would if I could, don’t get me wrong, but my friends were starting to think I was pregnant again. So I sucked it up and went jeans shopping. I was looking for some specific jeans and went shopping with two co-workers. We were all going to an event and needed to dress for the Western theme but of course we wanted jeans we would wear outside of the event and still look cool.
My favorite pair of pre-pregnancy jeans are from CAbi Factory Store. Love them! They’re long enough, cut higher in the back and super comfortable. I can finally fit back into them, and wear them a lot, but I decided to try something different. And since my co-workers and I are all different heights and sizes, we traipsed into Levi’s to give their Curve ID fit finder a try!
I went first. Erin who works there measured my natural waist, hips and the distance between and recommended demi or slight curve cuts for me because my jeans often gap in the back of the waist or are too big in the lower tush area. My co-worker, who is a petite little thing, also had those two styles recommended to her. My other co-worker tried on the bold curve cuts. The best part was all came in different lengths and leg cuts (straight, skinny, bootcut).
We took our different styles, cuts and colors of jeans into the fitting rooms and it was fabulous! I took home 3 pairs, ($39.99 each if you bought 2 or more) and my friends each took home a pair, plus some cute shirts to match.
If you haven’t bought jeans in awhile, stop into the Levi’s store at the Woodburn outlets and take a few minutes to have them measure you and make a recommendation. Forget those $200 jeans with sparkles on the butt drawing attention – spend less and have your friends tell you your butt looks skinnier!
Off we go to our western event, yeehaw!
