So I like my boyfriends edgy, cool, loose, comfy and extremely trashed. Same goes for my jeans.......
In all seriousness, for the longest of time, I searched high and low for boyfriend jeans that would cater to my vertically challenged frame. I didn't want to look like I'd been attacked and half-way swallowed by large amounts of denim. I also did not want to fork out ridiculous amounts of money for one. I am done paying more than $200 for jeans, been there, done that, so I already have my staples.
I initially settled for Zara jeans, where I just bought the next size up, but they hardly stayed on me unless I belted it, I still love them. But when I found these Jay Jay's one for a mere $15, which is a different wash to the Zara's and had the perfect amount of rips, I was sold. I didn't even try them on so I was extremely happy to come home only to realize how perfect they were. I did however add extra rips just to make them a lot more different to my other pair.
I also can't explain why I've been able to find ridiculous and amazing bargains of late. I mean the top and pants combined in this outfit cost less than the necklace itself. But the thing is, I don't expect for these items to last me til I am 60, but they're not exactly going to fall apart in the next 3-4 years either. They are simple and basic pieces that suits everything else in my wardrobe. If I at least get $1 per wear out of every item I own, then each piece is well worth it. Speaking like a true shop-a-holic/bargain hunter at heart.
