Jeans. Quite possibly the longest running trend of all time. I realize that is a slight exaggeration. Ever so slight.
Unfortunately for little old me, the never ending demand for quality jeans means that the price remains high. For those of us with very discriminating taste in denim, make that sky-high.
Over the past couple weeks, I have scoured the web for discount true religion jeans. What have I found? Enough knock-off jeans from China to cheaply style an army. Yes sir, deals on these sought-after pantaloons are few and far between if you're only looking for the real thing.
What's a girl to do? Buy them new? Have you looked at the prices lately? We're talking a minimum of $200 for the bottom shelf design. And I'm not just being clever by calling it "bottom shelf." If you've ever visited an actual True Religion store (the jeans table inside Nordstrom doesn't count) then you would know that they have a "denim bar." It's pretty cute...until you check out the price tags.
Anyhoo, the link I posted a couple paragraphs ago has been the only fruit of my internet searching labor. It's basically a doorway to eBay, but it's easier to narrow down exactly what you're looking for. Sometimes eBay searches can be wonky. Is that a word? Willy wonky.
On a side note - why is it that I spend all the cold months looking online for things to wear in the summer that I cannot afford...then during the summer I'm looking ahead to winter gear? Why am I incapable of living in the now?
Perhaps the world will never know.
