There are a handful of items I find essential for every woman’s closet and a fantastic pair of jeans should be at the top of the pile. When my favorite pair of skinny jeans ripped in the most awkward of places, I immediately mourned the loss of an inanimate object that had taken me through two very formative years of my life here in Seattle. There were dinner dates, graduation weekends, jean Friday at the new job, broken hearts and an entire summer on Match.com where I quickly learned that the problem of my bruised and broken heart wasn’t the “terrible” men that I “innocently” continued to find but was in fact because I kept choosing them. I had 16 dates to prove it.
My therapist earned her money during that session.
With sadness, I tossed my Joe’s jeans into the garbage, lifted my chin high and began the manhunt for a new skinny jean. I am a firm believer that a good pair of jeans is an investment; you pay for what you get and Old Navy is most certainly not a bargain. And while I have found $40 Citizens on the sale rack of a small town boutique and Joe’s jeans for 50% off at Nordstrom rack, I have always believed that your go to pair of jeans should not have a price limit. I have no problem paying for a pair that makes me feel like a million dollars and last weekend I found them.
