new loves and old friends: nothing comes between me and my calvins

(except maybe a pair of granny panties)
a few months ago, i asked you all the question, "what is the perfect pair of jeans?" well, i think i found them. i was thrifting the other day...i had had a bad day, and needed a little retail therapy. really, i needed to buy dog food, and i used that as an excuse to go to a thrift store. they're related, right? anyways, i saw these jeans on the 50% off rack and thought they looked adorable. they also looked teeny. but i grabbed them, because, hey...if they don't fit me, i can always donate them to the shop! but lo and behold, they were like the sisterhood of the traveling pants. they fit. and not only did they fit, but they were pure comfort. waist line just high enough to cover my l'il tummy, hips wide enough to fit, but not so snug that they make me uncomfortable. sure, they were a little short, but nothing that a little cuffing can't fix. voila, the perfect jean. plus they are vintage calvin klein, so i can totally pretend i'm a blue lagoon era brooke shields when i wear them.

  3. Finding a great pair of jeans I think is one of the greatest thing a person can ask for.
    I love the look of a simple grey t-shirt and a pair of jeans.

  4. ok these look great on you and so does the entire outfit in front of your scamp. I am so jealous of both. Great look so hip! Thanks for the thoughts about my little helps! Dawn xo oh and yes cat food is a great excuse to buy new shoes at target because they sell both. very funny story.

  5. Those jeans look great on you! I have the worst luck with pants at the thrift store, probably because I'm built a little like Spongebob. :)

    I really like the necklace, too. Forever 21, huh? I'm going to have to see if I can find it!

  9. So JEALOUS. Those are fantastic on you. I know this is a wierd request, but next time let's see the butt. I don't mean that in a pervy way, it's just, you know...good jeans are all about the butt.

    Sorry. There's just no way that doesn't sound pervy, huh?

    And you're wearing my fave sandals, too!!

    Also - the SCAMP!!
