Back in the spring I was shopping with my friend Julie when she was in town. I was looking for a pair of jeans and she suggested I try on these *gulp* $100+ pairs. I told her absolutely not, what crazy person would spend that much on a pair of jeans! Apparently me! She explained to me that I would wear them more, take care of them better and that they would maintain their shape better than my $30 jeans. She was right. I love these jeans. I can wear them for days in a row (yikes!) and they aren't all saggy like my others. This weekend I wanted to find one more pair of jeans to wear with my boots. I went back to the Buckle and my sales associate brought me 15 pairs of jeans to try on. I narrowed it down to two pairs, both which were the same brand as the pair I own and love. Big Star is apparently my brand of choice.
