Yesterday I thought I would go shopping for a new pair of jeans. I saw that Old Navy had a sale on their Rock Star jeans, ‘great for all shapes’. After loosing (almost) 50lbs, I figured it was time I invested in some fun coloured super skinny jeans – something I wouldn’t have felt comfortable wearing before. Of course, only a few days left of the sale resulted in the selection being pretty picked over. I found a few colours I really liked and headed to the change room.
First pair fit big – great feeling! Too bad someone had put them back incorrectly and they ended up NOT being the pants on sale. Next I tried on a pair of bright purple pants, same size as the ones before, but they just didn’t fit as nice. Then a pair I didn’t love the colour of, in the same size, fit perfect. Next I moved to a pair of dark grey jeans which didn’t even do up – AT ALL. Same size. Seeing the look of frustration on my face, the change area employee offered to go grab another pair in the same size to see if it would make a difference, which I wouldn’t have expected it to do. It did. They fit PERFECTLY. Same pants, same colour, same size label, totally different fit.
I don’t really know what the point of this post is, but I wanted to share. I am happy that I walked away with a pair of great fitting skinny jeans, but a little frustrated at the experience. I can’t help but wonder if other times I walked away empty handed if I had only tried on another pair, maybe I would have been okay? I guess that is one of the problems with mass production right? Thank you to the very helpful, and very encouraging employee that helped me out!
Now I wait patiently for the pair that I loved in the colour I really wanted to go on sale!
