Sorry, I digress.
Never mind the fact that we have our very own Buckle store in the Oglethorpe Mall - that is beside the point. That day in Wisconsin - in that Buckle store - history was made.
I tried on at least 20 pairs of jeans (using my sharp & fast method because I am not a fan of trying on clothes ever) and knew I'd discovered pure, sweet unadulterated gold when I found Big Star brand Casey K. Low Rise Fit.
Perfect in every way - they hugged my hips and thighs, flared out just the tiniest bit at the calf and bottom. The shade of indigo was righteous and downright religious! I know you understand.
If you have spent any portion of your life being thin, skinny or in need of a meal - you may not be able to relate, but for an hour-glass girl like me - constantly fighting the dreaded "apple" from taking over my top half, you can appreciate this next statement...
These jeans "sat" perfectly on my waist.
That sweet spot - mid-rise up the bottom of my abdomen (where nothing "muffin'd" above, nor "pooched" below when buttoned) sealed the delicious deal.
After carrying two nearly 10 lb. boys ending in c-sections - and who am I kidding - there's that issue with living below the Mason-Dixon line that has left my middle wanting for a month with my jaw wired, hand-cuffed to Jillian Michaels.
Back on point - Big Star's Casey K. Low Rise Fit jeans "give" when you sit down, right themselves when you stand up - there is zero stretching. They never, ever leave me with a saggy bottom - they never let me down. These jeans have butt-cutening ability at the highest level.
I am 37 years old - miracles CAN happen in the dressing rooms after 35!
Recently, when a friend asked about my jeans, I felt compelled to add another pair to my collection. I was shocked and saddened to find out that Casey K's were no longer available in Big Star's collection! After a bit of research, I learned that the Remy Collection is the replacement. http://www.bigstarusa.com/womens/fit/bootcut-denim-1/remy-bootcut-jeans/remy.html
Do yourself a favor this fall and invest in this life changer.
Helping hour-glass girls everywhere! No thanks necessary.
