Jeans. Call them destroyed, destruction, distressed, heavy-acid-washed or apparently bathed in acid. The bottom line is they have holes in them. Or they are frayed, faded, patched and/or worn-out looking. They are stylish but not for this girl.
In a recent shopping trip where I was looking for jeans, I had coupons at multiple department stores. Dear department stores: please don’t give me coupons that are good for anything but the jeans I selected … after I tried on every pair of jeans in the place … that were not destroyed, distressed, acid-reduced or holey. I know. I should have read the fine print, but I would have needed my readers, and there’s that distressed age thing creeping in again.
I did find jeans. At Peebles. And I used a coupon — got em for $20. They are Hannah jeans and I feel good in them — bling on the back pockets, and I am happy.
I have friends who love Miss Me jeans, but I’m not a fan of spending more than $20 on jeans. I got in the habit at Kmart when my kids were little. Levi’s and Lee — same style forever. Now, I’d like a little more style.
The thing I like about Hannah is they are promoted as Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. There is an entire website devoted to that with brands that lift, tuck and slim us. I like that. Here’s the link. My husband likes these on me, and the bottom line (get it — bottom line) is that he is he only one I want to impress.
And just for kicks, here’s an article on the most expensive jeans in the world. Holey Moley!
