The doctor recently adjusted my daughter's medication for Crohn's Disease and the inflamtion in her body has gone down so much that she has dropped a pants size or two. She loves to wear jeans and is slightly taller at 5'9" , and we have the best luck finding her jeans at Old Navy. We had no choice but to get something for her to wear -- her pants were literally sliding off of her more than I could easily take up. So waiting for a sale wasn't an option for us.
We had to run errands and Old Navy was on our list of stopping places. We spent a while trying on different styles and sizes until we finally stumbled upon the "perfect" jeans. I'm trying to remember being a teenager and how the "perfect" jeans were so important. She was upset and frustrated because they only had them in one shade of blue. Being older, I said we could just buy several pairs of the same color.....what was I thinking? I'm pretty sure based on the look she gave me that I must have been speaking in tongues or have grown a second head....either way that was not a winning suggestion.
While she put back a couple of pairs, I wandered through the clearance section. I hadn't been going to go through it because I honestly don't need anything. I am so glad I did!
Guess what I found? 4 pairs of jeans in varying shades of blue....in her size...in the preferred fit...and 50% off! They were new with tags, but because they had been bought online and returned they couldn't sell them at full price. They were an online only kind of thing. Three pairs were tall sizes, yet too long, and I will be hemming them. The fourth oddly enough fits in length. So I paid (with tax) $65 for 4 brand new pair of jeans for her! I'll gladly hem three pair of pants for a $65 savings....in fact, if I can find a job hemming them at that rate I may take it. It will take longer to thread the machine.
