The perfect pants

I’m in big trouble. In January I bought a pair of jeans at my local boutique. Now I can’t stop wearing them. I want to wear them everyday. They make me feel great. They are comfortable and trendy. I can wear them to work or out for dinner.

One pair is not enough! However, when I started looking on-line for a second pair I found out just how much of a deal I got on my first pair. They are the Joe’s Jeans Socialite. The standard price? Oh, $158!!! Argh! I paid $50 or so for mine. What am I to do?

Can I justify paying so much for jeans?

Recently the New York Times had an article on finding the perfect pair of chinos. The author sampled lots of pants and came up with this brand called Vince. I would love to find a pair of chinos that fit me like my Joe’s Jeans. How much do Vince chino’s cost? $175!

What’s a girl in search of great pants to do? Would you pay $150+ for a pair of pants?


  1. At this point in my life, I wouldn’t. However, if I had a job and I could wear those pants every day, I would. Most of the time I find my great pants in thrift stores because they are already worn in. So to me, $50 is quite a bit for pants, too.

    Then again, I don’t like shopping either and have no idea how much pants really cost.

  2. I wouldn’t pay that much for jeans! But I must say that I am at least in part responsible for making you have these new desires for only designer jeans! What a bad sister. I bet you could find some Joe jeans on sale somewhere else… or maybe check ebay now that you know your size…?

    and I agree, 1 pair is not enough~!! good luck!
