The “Momover”… New Jeans, Pt. 2

… My first shipment of online-jeans contained 11 pairs.  I sent them all back.  I ordered 9 more.  I kept 1 (woo hoo!).  I ordered more.  You get the idea.  Here are some of the jeans that worked for me- while they aren’t a perfect fit, I am happier with my jeans collection than...

The “Momover”… New Jeans, Pt. 1

February 9, 2010
