My Cheap Jeans Obsession Confession

March 5, 2015
Here’s my #TBT truth: 75% of the jeans I own are from Old Navy or the sale rack at The Gap and cost me under $40.

I realized that the other day as I visited both Nordstrom Rack and Old Navy in search of a new pair of flare-legged, dark-washed jeans. My old pair got stained recently, and here in L.A. “meeting jeans” are as critical a wardrobe staple as underwear.

I started at Nordstrom Rack where I found two pair of AGs, a Joe’s and a Lucky Brand. They were all fantastic and fit well, but even at The Rack they were between $65 and $100 each. To be clear, those are good prices for designer jeans. In the late summer of 2001, after working six jobs since May, I treated myself to a pair of Diesel’s (which were very cool then). They cost me $225, then. With inflation that’s like $1,000.

I think often of those jean because they’re sitting in the bottom most spot on my jeans shelf (relax, it’s only five deep and they’re all very different). They fit incredibly well. They felt incredibly good on my body. I wore them to death for almost five years. But are they $200 better than the Old Navy boyfriend cut light-washed pair positioned directly on top of them? No.

I thought about that as I left Nordstrom Rack and walked over to Old Navy where there was a giant sign boasting 40% off all pants. That’s almost half off of nothing, so we’re clear.

Fifteen minutes later I walked out with a brand new pair of the exact bottoms I was looking for (these, to be precise). They fit my butt. They make my legs look long. I like the wash color. And from five or five hundred feet, you can’t tell that they’re from Old Navy and not Bloomingdales.

That’s why I’m writing a post about them – to be 100% sure that you know the jeans you see me wearing every time you see me are from the Old Navy, or The Gap, or – brace yourself – The Forever21. Because I am a supporter of super cheap denim (slash super cheap everything, but I have a selfie in the denim so we’ll stick with that for now), and with some training and a few trips to the dressing room, I believe you can be too.

  1. I swear by American Eagle jeans! They’re good quality, no more than $50 a pair and always fit me….which is a big feat. You see I was blessed with a big booty and a tiny waist…..which sounds awesome in a bikini but which is highly inpracticle when shopping for pants because I always have to go a size or two bigger to accommodate the thighs and booty which often leaves a gap around the waist area. But not with the American Eagle jeans! They fit perfectly every time!

  2. I am totally behind you on this! I will splurge on certain items, usually shoes and makeup becausAs loe comfort and durability are super important! But when it comes to jeans Forever21 is typicallgo-togo to. ng as my butt looks good who cares! Thank you for this!

  3. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!!
