High-Rise Jeans

Jackie in jeans

Presenting another rare and short Saturday post.

Yes, I know if I keep posting on Saturday it will no longer be rare. I’ll commit to keep it short though.

THE big news today is an item of clothing. I discovered the most comfortable jeans at J Crew yesterday. And they’re high-waisted.

Now before you shudder and think mommy jeans, take a look.

Here’s the link:  http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/denim/bootcutandflare/PRDOVR~51329/51329.jsp

They’re comfortable, they don’t fall down around my hips, and they’re smokin’ in jezebel wash.

Granted they’re a bit pricey. J Crew cardholders, use the email promo to save 20 percent. Missouri friends, enjoy tax-free purchases this weekend.

I have my favorite Lucky low-rise jeans too. But they give a little with wear, leaving me with the dreaded muffin top. Will be interesting to see how these beauties perform.

J Crew has been known to fuel a trend or two. Perhaps comfortable, good-looking, high-rise jeans will show up in other favorite stores. We can hope.

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25 NIV

Before I go, the stuff of fashion lore: The darling salesperson who helped me said when the high-waisted flare jeans were introduced, New York J Crew stores sold out within days. And since New York is the center of the universe, regional stores (like St. Louis) had to ship their stock to the Big Apple. The regional stores have been replenished, but the jeans are selling like hotcakes.

PS: I’m not being paid to promote these jeans or J Crew. I just like you and like them and thought you two should meet.
