This week I did something out of character for me. I bought a pair of designer jeans. I’ve always been true to my Levis and have never strayed - even during the years when Brook Shields was going on about nothing coming between her and Calvin Kleins.
My grandpa wore Levis, my dad wore Levis, and my brother still wears Levis. This is how deep my Levis roots are. When I lived in the Bay Area, I went to the Levis headquarters in San Francisco to visit their museum…and of course drop off a resume
I don’t know what possessed me, but I tried on a pair of Lucky jeans, and hey, they looked pretty darn good. I looked at the tag and they were $98. Hmmm… not so bad, I’d seen worse price tags. So I took the plunge and bought them.
When I got home and started to take off all the tags I noticed this. What the heck does this mean? Those silly marketing people, as if they think they could really fool me.
Translation: MOM JEANS. Did they really have to mention that they are EASY FIT. MID RISE I can handle, but EASY FIT is in no way cool.
Because, Suz from Alive in Wonderland made me do it.One day she asked me “why don’t you start your own blog?” I replied, “I’m not a blogger.” At this point, Suz probably thought I was a little odd, since this conversation took place at a launch party for OC Moms where we are both mom bloggers for the Orange County Register’s website.
When I went home that day I wondered to myself, why I didn’t consider myself a real blogger.I think Suz already had me figured out and over several months gently pushed me into creating my very own blog. She calls herself bossy, I call her inspirational.
Now, I feel as though I’ve got my new dress on and I have finally arrived at the party. Now, it’s time to mingle.
