Just got back from Nordstroms and had a very overwhelming little shopping spree for myself. I hate shopping alone and I really love a kind worded but brutally honest opinion and my mom and sisters live too far. A big thank you to the girl who helped me at Nordstroms - you were great! Thank you for not bursting out laughing at me as tried on 30 pairs of jeans and hemmed and hawed and hemmed and hawed some more.
I finally decided on a pair by a designer I had never heard of (that means nothing b/c I can be dumb in this dept) named David Khan. David takes pity on me and my muffin top and makes his jeans not so low rise. He also takes special care to make sure I can button my size 8 without having to lay down and use a coat hanger on the zipper. This could be a tailoring trick but I don't care... David you rule!
I also got a cute swing top from the Limited who has been hooking me up with cute tops since 1984! I'll post a pic of the whole ensemble later.... now I am really psyched for the party :)
Have a great w/e! xo, Brie
PS don't tell Mr. KB but I also got these by Jag. They were a lot less $$ than the others and when you find good jeans that actually fit you well it's hard to turn your back on them. These are more casual looking in person that than my other pair.
