[ mom jeans ]

SHOPPING FOR jeans can be a frustrating experience and what if you found out you could be wearing mom jeans and not even know it? gasp!

I came across a great blog post at grasping for objectivity and not only was it funny, it was eye-opening! Essentially, Rachel went on a quest to try on numerous brands and styles of jeans and her husband photographed her from behind to show what a difference a good cut, fit and pocket placement actually makes. Could Gap jeans almost be mom jeans? How about Old Navy? Hmm... maybe they are...



I know I'd rather have a perky bum than a wide or droopy looking one. Needless to say, it prompted me to immediately go try on all of my jeans and take a better look. Hmm... maybe I'll go jeans shopping this weekend! Check out her post and see all of her examples here.

Oh no! Too funny. I would never have thought of this. I'm happy if I can find a pair that looks good from the front.

I really hate shopping for jeans...I usually buy for comfort. Last pair from Ann Taylor loft. I'm not the size I'd like to be so no matter what jean I wear it's offensive! Great post though.

Note to self** Throw out all Gap and Old Navy jeans! I will stick to the more designer kind! I don't care how much it costs me... I will not have a saggy butt!!

Lol! I just came back from reading her post - omg too funny!

I never wear Gap stuff (not really a fan of their style) but I have worn Old Navy jeans before - better go take a "butt" shot and make sure they pass the Mom Jean test! ;-)

Funny! I read that post too - I lost 10 pounds this summer so I needed new jeans. I ended up getting some from Express because of that post. They are great.
