I'm in Kansas visiting the family and had an opportunity to do some shopping with my very hip niece the other day. We stopped in the Towne West mall and I discovered a company called Buckle (not in Seattle) that carries some of their own jeans and the Lucky Brand of jeans.
Now, I am a larger size (12) and I find it hard to get jeans that fit. Lucky Brand has been good to me in the past and the young gal helping me in the dressing room found a few pairs that worked for me. This is a good thing considering how tough I am to fit.
I was also impressed that jeans here aren't as expensive as the designer jeans they sell at places like Nordstrom where you have to put down $150-250 for a pair. Unrealistic and the reason so many young women are getting themselves into some serious debt.
