As I talked about in my last post, I was trying on jeans at Gap in the mall away from home but after my risk-benefit analysis I decided that $12 was too much for jeans with a chocolate stain and 4 miles of extra length that I didn't need. But $7.78-chocolate stain = sealed deal. Seal Deal!
I found these at my local Gap for $12.97. With an extra 40% off, I was finally able to overlook the several inches of denim that I was stomping on and tripping over in the dressing room. I think I have found the perfect wide legged, high-waisted pant. My search ends here....or DOES it?
|In Gap spirit, I wore my Gap belt which is probably 10 years old and also scored for ~$7 (with inflation it is probably a $10 belt!!)|

ADHD MINUTE: ideeli.com is having a James Jeans sale! I wanted all the jeans but then I remembered I had my own. These were my 1st splurge on anything EVAR, and the store had complimentary hemming, using the ancient and special technique of re-attaching the ORIGINAL hem (this was very important to them...and me after being brainwashed) . Anyway, these are like the PERFECT length for 3" heels.
See? I would only have to hem the Gap jeans by like 1.5 or 2".

Speaking of James Jeans and Gap Jeans. I apparently own 20 pairs of jeans!!! I stopped buying jeans for a whole year in order to control the jean population. I tried to neuter them, spay them, give out free birth control, institute a one child-jean-only rule. But still, they kept on multiplying. I've been buying jeans since high school; I suspect I do it while sleepwalking. I mean jeans are so thick and blue and theoretically should last years and years. Therefore, whenever I find a cheap pair of jeans, I think that that I've encountered something of high value! Most of the jeans I own cost less than $20, less than $15 even. I started to reflect on my little denim children and felt an unquenchable need to catalogue and classify them by leg type and color. When I get the Gap jeans back from the tailor I will finish my little Jean catalogue project.
