1. I believe I paid over $100 for them. (Yes, I realize NOW that $100 for BLUE JEANS is quite ri-god-damn-diculous, but when I bought them I had a really good job/salary. Hindsight 20/20? Maybe spending over $100 on a pair of jeans is the reason I'm flat broke?
Reason number 2 and probably the MOST important reason? My ass looked FABULASS in them! They did - I'm not going to lie - and that is why I could not part with them. I clung to the TINIEST of hopes that I would one day - have the courage and will power to put the pasta fork down and skip the cheesecake desserts and put my SKINNY ASS back into those fabulous jeans. Well, tonight as I cleaned out my closet getting rid of one item that will never fit on my body again after another...I decided it was time to give up the dream. I mean, it's been years - time for them to go. Or was it?
I was just about to toss them in the "goodbye/goodwill" bin and I decided what the hell? I'll try them on just before I say goodbye.
Well, they fit! and they're actually a little big! Turns out.. my Vodka/Gin/Starbucks diet? it's working! All these years... I've been yo-yo dieting and all it took was a little binge drinking and Voila! I've got my favorite jeans back!!
Shopgirl is one happy girl tonight!
