A Personal Fashion Milestone
Monday, August 28, 2006
I bought my first pair of pricey jeans this weekend. They're from Paige, and they were on the 50 percent off rack at Blackjack, but it's still the most expensive denim I've ever purchased. Until now, I'd always been perfectly satisfied with the Gap Long & Lean jeans that you can often find for $20 on the sale rack. But I tried these Paige jeans on, and they seduced me completely with their flattering fit and their slightly tapered leg. Truly, I'm not even sure they're any better than the Long & Leans, but the little voice in my head kept going, "...What a deal! …You'll regret it if you don't buy it… Do you *really* need to eat this month?" It is really hard to shut that voice up sometimes. So I bought them.
