Fashion Friday: Th' ASS better

"You did WHAT?!!!! NOOOOO WAY!"

(more on that later)

Well, my recent whine about my bad jean wear inspired me. Or more importantly, your many comments (and I loved them) decided for me that my denim wardrobe needed a little lift (pun fully intended).

After I dropped little G off to her morning program yesterday, I headed over to Hill Street Blues, a store that's schtick is buy one, get one 1/2 off. They've got a really great collection of higher end denim. I've been meaning to get there for a while now (ever since G was born and my post-baby fat was coming off and staying off). But Old Navy was always more convenient, since I'm always in there for the kids.

Momma is now officially out of the Old Navy closet.

I walked in to this oasis of blue, in every shade imaginable. A spot of grey and black popped up every so often, but it was truly a blue, blue store.

And the labels ... there was Chip & Pepper, 7 for All Mankind (and Citizens for Humanity), Rock & Republic, those are only the ones I'd heard of... I didn't know where to start.

Thankfully the sales associates were very helpful. I took about a dozen pairs into the change room with me. And I ended up walking away with three pairs. I wanted to take more, but I prudently decided to leave that treat until another paycheque.

Now because I love my blogging so much, and I love my blog friends, I thought I should really provide an update. So, the thing that prompted the hubs' reaction outlined above?



I took pictures. Of my ass. For you. And I'm posting them here. I'm not even inebriated. This blog has now reached a new low milestone.

Evidence of me sharing my aberrant behaviour with an innocent mind:



Love Mavi Jeans. All three that I tried on fit like a glove, but I narrowed it down to these:


Here are the investment jeans. It was a toss up between Rock & Republic and these. But once I popped the Hudsons on, there was no going back. They're smooth like buttah. The pockets sit a little low so I'll likely be hiking the pants up a lot. Or just staying in this position all the time while I wear them.

Miss Me - a bit fuzzy but there's a little patch of bling on the pocket. Fun.



Siwy skinny (these were hiding in the closet)


Yes, Mommy's gone a little loco...



It's going to be a snowy, snowy day into night here, so I'll likely be blog hopping tonight. Hope to see you there!

I love me some pocket jeans! Always good for flattering a little bum. Nice selections!!!

Rima said...

OMG, I think this is my favorite Fashion Friday evah, and there is definitely no sag on that a$$. I'm glad you listed the labels that fit you well because I'm in the market for some non-Gap denim, but I don't know where to start.

BeachMama said...

I so love your new jeans. Do you have any secrets for getting and keeping the baby weight off? Not that I am having too much trouble yet, but every little secret counts ;).

And that store, I will have to make a trip when the time is right.

OHmommy said...

I could never live without my HUDSONS. I wish more mommys knew how good a butt looks in a properly fitted pair of Hudsons. I wlil not tell you how many pairs I have.

Way to go mom. When mom is happy everyone is happy.

Blog hopping... nothing like finding a pair of jeans that feel GOOD! Enjoy!

Christine said...

I was just thinking there are just not enough blogs with fanny self portraits. excellent!!

I agree with OHMOMMY ....HUDSON jeans are to die for. I look better than I deserve to in my Hudsons

all cute jeans on you, fun post.

Badness Jones said...

Ok, I'm jealous. You look great. :)

I may have to go and find me some of those Hudsons. Hmmm...Ihave a bday coming up...

Amy said...

Hudsons are next on my list. I've got the Seven for all Mankind, the Citizens, the Rock and Republic, the True Religion (my favorite) and my husband has a heart attack every time I go jeans shopping. He asked why I can't just go to Old Navy anymore. It's an addiction, good denim, once you go designer you can't go back!
