Some of you remember my obsession with the Re/Done Levi's. The jeans I ordered, ended up being way too small, intentional rip in one knee that wasn't in the Barneys stock photo. Unfortunately I had a ton of stuff going on at the same time and lost the receipt and missed the return window. So I'm stuck with those stupidly expensive jeans.

Most of my current jeans give me more muffin top than a bakery.

Madewell has a deal that if you bring in old jeans to recycle, you'll
get $20 off a new pair. I had a pair of old True Religions that had
split in the butt. I visited the store many times over several months
and couldn't find any jeans I liked. Finally I found these, 100% cotton.
The fit exactly how I wanted, high waist but not a skinny jean. I like the faded color.

ETA I got a size 31.
