Denim Woes Solved!

First let me say sorry for not posting for the past couple of months, but I decided that I wanted to take three classes this semester (why I have no real idea) hence the lack of posts. But I am now that much closer to graduating (woot woot), so thank you for your patience.

Trolling my emails this morning I came across an article from about the 23 best places to buy denim, and most of the do have a website. So if you don’t live in NYC have no fear you to can partake of these great styles. The list features some classic names such as AG Jeans, Rag n Bone, GAP, and Levi’s. There are even some newbies like Mavi jeans. But sadly most of these jeans are $100 or more, so what about budget friendly options?
Hence my addition to the list with some spots that I have found offer a great selection at reasonable pricing. LOFT, Alloy, New York & Company, as these brands offer tall lengths (because women over 5’8 like to wear jeans) plus offer a variety of styles. Having gone to various places and tried on jeans to be disappointed in cut and fit, LOFT ranks as my top tip. It sits ON my waist (not below it) and has stretch, plus they have a curvy style (cause a girl got some hips!). So while yes, most the brands listed are great, what about us 99% that don’t want to have $200 for jeans? Now mind you, this is just my take. I want to know what is your go to brand? What do you like about them? Have you tried any of the listed ones?

The end of boozy brunches in NYC?

Say it isnt so!!! So a co worker told me that apparently NYC has a law on the books that prevents establishments from serving unlimited alcohol. In disbelief I Googled this and sadly its true. There is a liquor law that prevents patrons from receiving unlimited drinks for either a fixed price. While I’m sure some establishments may turn a blind eye you can expect that there will no longer be brunches with endless drink offers going forward.

OOTD 2/21/14

Today I am rocking my new Alloy London Skinny jeans (love the stretch, not the falling down) and I paired it with a chambray top and of course C+I jewelry. However it has been suggested that I buy a belt to keep my pants from falling down…..

So I was led to these via a coworker who suggested I try them after I saw her in them. Who else has a hard time finding jeans that fit? Enough give but not baggy after 20 minutes? Then check out the London Super Skinny from Alloy (style 176066). Plus at about $30 its a good deal. The top is actually from the mens dept in Old Navy. I’m a busty gal so most manufactures for women’s clothing fail to realize that the bust area needs a bit more fabric for us larger girls. I got the skinny cut and for about $18 I’m pretty happy. So what do you think of my Friday work outfit?
