Paul gave me a certificate for a “pair of nice jeans” for Christmas so I went on a mad hunt and tried on a bazillion pairs of jeans. There were a few that were OK but nothing I loved. I was disappointed because I was prepared to spend some good money. On a whim I tried on some $12 jeans at Forever 21 and I LOVED them. It is possible that I was more forgiving on the fit because of the cost. But regardless I’ve been wearing them 2 weeks and gotten compliments from friends and strangers on the street. So good job Forever 21, but I think my friend Maggie is right when she said, “you better go buy two more pairs of those because they are going to disintegrate by next week.” While I’m in buying another pair I’m going to try on this skirt.
