is for Jeans

I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Most every weekend you can find me in jeans. I would rather wear jeans around the house than pajama or lounge pants.

You can dress them up. You can dress them down. You can wear them with high heels or tennis shoes. You can make a pair of jeans in to a pair of capri's in about 1 minute.

There is stone washed, acid washed, distressed, dark denim, light denim, boot cut, skinny leg, slimming jeans and relaxed fit.

Jeans have come a LONG way in the last 5 years. We now have the "fashion pants" jeans. You know the ones. Stuff all over the pockets, strategic distressing in the front on the legs. And guess what? I am a fan. Shamelessly.

I am only 5 feet tall. Let me tell you what jean shopping looks like for me:

I find the cutest pairs. I hold them up to my waist to see how long they are going to be. Most don't make it past that first test. For the few** that do, it is off to the dressing room. I pull them on, one leg at a time, feeling the excitement grow as I pull them up. And then? My face falls and I am heart broken once again. Cause guess what? They are too long. (insert sobbing here) Do they think that only tall people can wear these cute jeans? Where is the love for the under 5 foot 3 crowd?

Problem 2: I have a booty. Not just a round ass but a "o.m.g. Becky, would you look at her butt? it is so big........." kind of butt. Add that to being vertically challenged and jeans shopping is a nightmare. So when you see me around town wearing jeans with holes in them that have seen much better days, you will know why.

Problem 3: Like the above picture buckle jeans (which I covet by the way) I have a small budget. I can not afford $125 to $150 for a pair of frickin jeans. I am willing to spend $50 but anymore than that and I'm out. Now tell me where I can find petite length "fashion pants" for less than $50???? Help.

Have you thought of getting them hemmed... I know that the seven jeans at Macy's they will get them hemmed for you for free... but they are a pretty penny I know! I have the same issues with jeans, but I've been wearing heals a lot more lately so it works out for the most part! Good luck if you get any good advice let me know!
