When it comes to buying clothes, I'm cheap. I could care less where they come from, and if you ask me where I got my top, chances are it will be from Goodwill or Ross.
Pants are trickier. I mean, nicer pants really do fit better. Which poses a conundrum for someone who doesn't want to spend more than $30.
Last year when I lost a bunch of weight, I didn't want to shell out for new pants. Once I got down from a 10-11 to a size 7-8, I reluctantly went out and bought a few pairs from Ross. Once I got down to a 2-3... I just slapped a belt on the 7-8's and called it good. Ha not so hot...
My sister took pity on me and gave me an old pair of her jeans and loaned me a pair of Lucky brand jeans as well. She is around my same [freaking short] height has all of her pants hemmed. Say what? They didn't look like this:
I could even wear them with flip flops and *not* roll them up or use safety pins. Classy!
When we went to NY in December, my sister took pity on me and bought me 3 amazing pairs of jeans that were on super clearance, all different styles. I splurged on 2 pairs of Mavi jeans and got them for... $84 for both pairs! One was regularly $110 so I was feeling good about myself:)
So, right now I have 5 pairs of jeans that are super nice, but I can't actually wear because they are too long. I broke down today and decided to have them hemmed. Sewing is the one domestic thing that I don't do.
I know this is boring to you, but I'm super excited about having "new" clothes that actually FIT!
Now, if they only would look that cute on...
