As some may know, I’ve lost some weight. At the height of my pregnancy I was 186 or 189 something like that. Now I am 126. It’s been a pretty drastic change and basically nothing in my wardrobe fits. Not that I’m complaining. I’ve tried for years to be under 145 and could never get there. I believe that once I stop pumping so much as pumpkin weans, I’ll probably gain some back, but hopefully overall I will weigh less than before the pregnancy. Although the thought of my weight yo-yo-ing does have me stressed out. I’d love to stay this thin forever, but it’s not attainable.
In the meantime, I still need pants. Pants that fit. I went to Nordstrom’s to try on Jeans. Looks like I’m a size 26 (whatever that is) which I think equates to a size 6. Designer jeans seem to run on a different sizing system. I wanted to get designer because I remember a time where skinny people used to tell me that designer jeans felt amazing to be in. I remember hoping that one day I would lose enough weight that I could squeeze into my own expensive pair.
But everywhere I looked at Nordstrom’s the jeans were “skinny jeans”. I don’t mind that look mind you, and actually liked the Paige “boyfriend” jeans, but I want real jeans. Not a pair that is 99% spandex. I can get that at any clothing store. I already have jeggings. Yes, they are super comfy, but I don’t need to pay $186 for a pair of jeggings when I can get them at NY&Co for $20.
I want a pair of real jean material. Real Jeans. When I asked the super nice Nordstrom’s clerk, she looked at me like I was cray cray. She stated that all jeans have a “stretch” in them. But that’s not what I want. I have cheap stretch jeans,and the problem is they all stretch out over time. You are constantly having to replace them. But a good pair of jeans….they can last forever.
So I turn to you my wonderful readers. What brand of jeans do you like? I need a pair that is mostly real jean. A pair that has a straight leg and is offerred in petite. Is it too much to ask for a pair that makes my ass look good?
Oh but I am getting a pair of leggings with Leather on the sides. I rocked that so hard! ^_^
