Jeans - Jeans - Jeans - when did it become so hard to find the right pair....

Hi Everyone,

A little delay in my posting - hectic here - just finally moved into our new home!!!! YEAH! But during this past hectic weekend - I did manage to stop by some of my favorite downtown shops - My first stop was Relish Decor
Will be newest addition to my "dish towel" collection
This is A Must - Says It All!!!!
Happily Ever After Pillow

Than I was off to Silk & Burlap - I went in to try on this super cute Rachel Zoe dress - but to my dismay - was not "super cute" on me.  The shoulder pads were very large on my petite frame - length & neckline perfect but those darn shoulder pads were not removable so I had to pass - it was like a bad trip back to the 80's..... Boo Hoo Hoo ( thanks Jennifer for setting aside for me to try on though)
So I decided to switch gears and try on jeans - always looking for great new pair!  When you find them you know it.  They go well with a T-Shirt or Beautiful Blouse w/heels for a night out - or a just a simple Wife Beater Tank. 

But Man,  it has been really hard lately.  A lot of the new "skinny jeans" are too low rise & give me "pancake butt"  Not a fan - than others put too much bling on the back pockets - do wonders for my backside however no offense but I live on the the East Coast not in Nashville (love to all in Nashville just saying...)  

It's like Goldie Locks of Jeans shopping.  So many choices - in the past I like the fit of my Joe's Jeans had them for years.  Zara make a decent denim that doesn't break the bank - I have a "skinny" pair and a "boyfriend" pair.  Only $49 - $59 ( not too bad).  This Saturday I bought James Jeans from a very patient Jennifer (tired on lots) they have a nice little lift not too much not too little.  They are a cute everyday jean with all the right proportions - I also found a FAB pair of Boot Cut Jeans - they are my favorite by far - my size was out so I am waiting for Jenny of Silk & Burlap to get them in for me.  I find at my age etc.... that I want stylish jeans but not too over the top.  Or Something that has a little stretch but won't sag or stretch in the waist band and backside.  A pair I don't have to constantly pull up... ya know what I mean?  Hudson Jeans are on my list to try this week down at Neiman Marcus - going to inlist my friend Egle to give honest opinion!  So stay tuned. Check out the link I found below with info on many body types and the jeans that flatter the best & why.

12 different body types and which jeans flatter the most.

Also a side note:  You have to try these pants - I got the SLOUNGE in black.  Most flattering yoga pants ever!!!!!! Freddy / US looks like they have jeans too will have to check it out.  I'll take all the help I can get!
