I am in the market for a new pair of Jeans.
I went shopping for that perfect pair stopping first, at my favorite store; Gap. Unfortunately, shopping after Christmas isn't really such a great idea. They were picked through and if you weren't a size 0 or extremely lucky, they didn't have your size. Certainly nothing that would fit ME! So I moved on. I checked several other stores with no luck. Finally, I went to Lane Bryant.
I love shopping in that store. I like the fact that I am not buying the largest sizes, but instead I wear thier smaller ones. I guess you can think if me as a size 3 instead of the typical 16/18. Unfortunately, I don't like thier jeans so much. They have "Stretch" jeans which sound like a good thing, but it's really not. Not for me anyway. Thier jeans will fit just right, immediately after coming out of the wash, but 2 hours later they're suddenly tooooo big in certain areas. They take "Stretch" to a new level!!
That's why I try to steer clear of thier denim. Fortunately for me, they have a new style now. They don't stretch! I was so excited....until I saw how picked through they were. In fact, unless you're a size 30 or extremely lucky, they didn't have your size. Certainly nothing that would fit ME!
After a full day of shopping for a single pair of jeans I threw in the towel. I was done and reserved the remainder of my energy for shopping online.
I finally ordered a pair of the non-stretch demin jeans, in my size from Lanebryant.com . I've been waiting and waiting for them to come. I finally logged into the website to check the status of my order. Get this...
Order Placed: Dec. 27
Delivery Estimate: Jan. 12
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!?! I am so mad. I emailed Lane Bryant and told them I will be returning these jeans to the store because I cannot support a company that takes 16 days to ship. I could have ordered these from another COUNTRY and gotten them sooner.
Now, after all the trouble I went to get a pair of jeans that I liked in my size...do you think I'm going to return them when they finally arrive??
