A Happy Ending

Remember this tragic tale? Well, now it has a happy ending

If you were around when I told the story of my distress over losing my favorite green jeans, you will understand the significance of these pictures.

Now, it must be noted that the green jeans that I'm wearing in the pictures are not the same pair of green jeans that disappeared from my life months ago. I still haven't found those, and I'm thinking they might be a lost cause.

However, I was at Kohl's in the children's section, buying clothes for my little sister when I spied this pair of jeans hanging from the 70% clearance rack, with a price tag reading $10. They were a girls' size, but they were on the large end of  girls' sizes, so I decided it couldn't hurt to try them on, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

And they fit perfectly! I think, perhaps, jeans sized for children aren't meant to be worn quite as skin-tight as Junior's sized jeans, and that extra generosity in sizing made these jeans a very comfortable and flattering fit for me. I couldn't believe that I'd found jeans in my favorite color, that fit me well and that were only $10.

I had to buy them, of course, even though I wasn't meant to be shopping for myself on that outing, you don't turn down a jeans miracle like that. And I have been happily wearing them since. I love my green jeans, I don't ever want to without them again. And if my original pair does turn up someday, I'll be happy to have them back, too!

The jeans actually are just a hair shorter than they probably should be--but oh well, I guess I'm tall for my age.

Cute! Love them. :) you look really happy to be wearing green jeans again! You could probably hem the bottoms down a little, it looks like there is some extra material at the cuffs if you wanted to try :P I've done it before, its really easy. :)

haha that's awesome you actually fit into a child size- it's so hard to find prices like that in the big kids section ;) hopefully the missing jeans aren't a total lost cause :(

I can't believe you can buy your clothes in the children's section. Saving yourself some $ like that missy : )

maybe your other pants have officially just died and these are just the reincarnated pants.

I bet I'm right;)

That is awesome! I can't imagine every being able to fit into something in the children's section, but I'm so happy it worked for you. Life is always sweeter when you love your jeans.
