|01:30 pm - Oh, the horror!|
Well, it had to happen eventually. I mean, it's not like I wasn't expecting it. After all, it does come around every year or so. Still, it's always such a shock when the time comes, you know? I mean, you just can't really anticipate it, and even if you try, the terror just blocks it out of your mind until you just can't avoid facing it anymore.
But I can't avoid it any longer. I can't deny it, much as I'd like to. Can't push it away or do anything, anything at all to alleviate it.
No, this is it. This is really it.
It's time to go shopping for a pair of jeans that fits.

Their cheap assed $13 jeans fit better than any $50 pair I've ever bought. And they last longer, too.
I wish they sold shoes...
Get a pair for me, too, please. I've been avoiding that nasty little trip out all summer.

I don't know what your body shape is like, but I have been really happy with Sergio Valente and Lucky Brand. For me, the key is to get something with 1-2% lycra. I can NEVER go back to jeans without lycra.
If you can get past the fact that its kmart... they carry Levis (if you care about it being a recognizable name...) for 20$ or less. I live in my low rise bootcuts from the women's department. fit just right none of this stretch/cling to your every inch stuff.

Oooh. Time to camp out in the fitting rooms. ;)
Actually, the best fit for me was surprisingly the Riders brand carried by Kmart. They have one version that includes just a tiny bit of Lycra and it's enough to make them extremely flattering, but without the superstretchiness and white streaks that scream "I'm filled with elastic!" I agree with xviragox
, I won't go back to non-Lycra blends. Plus, they're cheap. Yay.

I know how you feel! I just bought a pair of perfect jeans at Lucky. They are a little pricey, but I would rather buy 1 pair that fit me perfectly, even the length, than 4 pairs that are cheap but have flaws or wear out quickly.
