I just ordered some Good American jeans to try on, a brand I’ve never tried before. They have petite “girlfriend” jeans with just the right amount of distressing and offered $50 off. Will report back on fit.
New question: does anyone have flats they love that feel like sneakers? My feet have been totally pampered by wearing running shoes almost every day for the entire pandemic, and now the idea of putting on my dressier flats is just, ugh. I have to wear close-toed shoes and stand up a lot when I’m on site at work (in a lab). I could just wear gym clothes to work – no one would care – but I like to wear real clothes! I try to go out and walk during lunch, and I have only a few pairs of non-athletic shoes that are comfortable to walk a couple of miles. Mostly I wear sneakers, like Chucks or similar, which I like, but I’m hoping to find something that resembles a dressier shoe. Is this type of shoe a total unicorn?
So, a few years ago I was having a lot of foot problems and a doctor told me I was facing surgery if I didn’t start wearing supportive shoes. One brand I sometimes buy now is Vionic. Some of the styles are… very much what you’d expect from podiatry-friendly shoes, but they do have some more stylish pairs. They have flats that may be worth checking out.
The Good American jeans arrived. Not bad, but I’m on the fence. I’ve never worn this brand before so I grabbed what I consider my usual size in most brands and a size up. Very comfortable and maybe even run a little big, though with women’s sizes I feel like that means nothing. My usual size is the best fit, but I still have a waist gap. I’m not sure if a size down would have worked better. I kind of wish the distressing hit in different spots. For a different price point I might say these are fine and keep ’em, but since they weren’t cheap, I want to really like them.
@shakeourtree Today I had success with a pair of AG jeans. I’ve been mulling over the Good American pair and they give me a flat mom butt look. I don’t like that look, I don’t work out just for a pair of jeans to give me that look. Anyway, these fit the best of anything I’ve tried lately and my butt looks great.
