I think a lot of my hang up is that I don't have problems buying jeans like some women do. I am not a large person and I have no rear end so I don't have problems finding a good fit. I can go into almost any store and find something that fits, and is cheap. Shopping for jeans just isn't something that I have a hard time with, bathing suits on the other hand... well that is just torture!
Anyway, I went jeans shopping the other day and walked out of the store with two pairs of jeans for about $40. One of them only cost me$10.50 on sale. I don't look like a looser either! (At least I don't think I do.) These were stylish jeans that look good on me. I have even gotten genuine compliments on them since purchasing them. I just cant justify spending so much on clothing. I have a lot of clothes and shoes but I defy you to find anything in my closet that cost more than $30! I guess when you have been raised with not much it teaches you to be more frugal about what you do spend your money on. I say all this now but I will have to eat my words if I go this party and fall in love with a pair that cost $60 and just have to have them. I think S would absolutely kill me!
