Happily Ever After Pillow
Than I was off to Silk & Burlap – I went in to try on this super cute Rachel Zoe dress – but to my dismay – was not “super cute” on me. The shoulder pads were very large on my petite frame – length & neckline perfect but those darn shoulder pads were not removable so I had to pass – it was like a bad trip back to the 80’s….. Boo Hoo Hoo ( thanks Jennifer for setting aside for me to try on though)
So I decided to switch gears and try on jeans – always looking for great new pair! When you find them you know it. They go well with a T-Shirt or Beautiful Blouse w/heels for a night out – or a just a simple Wife Beater Tank.
But Man, it has been really hard lately. A lot of the new “skinny jeans” are too low rise & give me “pancake butt” Not a fan – than others put too much bling on the back pockets – do wonders for my backside however no offense but I live on the the East Coast not in Nashville (love to all in Nashville just saying…)
It’s like Goldie Locks of Jeans shopping. So many choices – in the past I like the fit of my Joe’s Jeans had them for years. Zara make a decent denim that doesn’t break the bank – I have a “skinny” pair and a “boyfriend” pair. Only $49 – $59 ( not too bad). This Saturday I bought James Jeans from a very patient Jennifer (tired on lots) they have a nice little lift not too much not too little. They are a cute everyday jean with all the right proportions – I also found a FAB pair of Boot Cut Jeans – they are my favorite by far – my size was out so I am waiting for Jenny of Silk & Burlap to get them in for me. I find at my age etc…. that I want stylish jeans but not too over the top. Or Something that has a little stretch but won’t sag or stretch in the waist band and backside. A pair I don’t have to constantly pull up… ya know what I mean? Hudson Jeans are on my list to try this week down at Neiman Marcus – going to inlist my friend Egle to give honest opinion! So stay tuned. Check out the link I found below with info on many body types and the jeans that flatter the best & why.
Also a side note: You have to try these pants – I got the SLOUNGE in black. Most flattering yoga pants ever!!!!!! Freddy / US looks like they have jeans too will have to check it out. I’ll take all the help I can get!
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY,
