PSF - Designer Jeans!

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


I'm so lagging on the blogging front lately but with two kids home all day long it is really hard to find time to sit at the computer. Especially when your yelling at your Teen to limit her time online!

Moving on to my Photostory Friday!

I had such a fun shopping experience this morning that I just had to share. Today was the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I went to Nordi's hoping to find a fabulous pair of shoes on sale, but after cruising the shoes I decided that I wasn't in a shoe buying mood so I headed up stairs to check out the clothes.

While looking at these really cute sweaters I heard this man's voice over my shoulder, "I know you came in here to try on a pair of my jeans?" I turned around to find two trendy looking men giving me the once over.

"I would love to try on a pair of your jeans....if you think you have made them long enough and wide enough for my 6 foot tall plump self."

He asked my inseam, quickly sized me up and grabbed a pair of trouser jeans for me to try on. When he handed me the jeans he told me that I had to show him what they looked like once I got them on.

It took me a few minutes before I realized that I was talking to the actual designer, David Kahn. With his jeans in hand I headed off to find the sales woman that had been helping me.

As I admired the rather expensive jeans I heard David outside my dressing room door asking if he could have a look. Seriously?

I let David and his assistant in the room, he spun me around, sq
ueezed the back of the jean at the waist band and turned to his assistant and asked her to get me a smaller size. Nice!

With the new smaller size on, David came back and asked me how they felt. I told him I thought the bigger size fit better and he informed me that you don't buy loose jeans because after you wear them they will stretch out half a size or more and will be falling off by the end of the day.

"What.....you mean your jeans aren't supposed to be sagging off your ass by the end of the day."
David laughed at my joke and continued to fawn over me and the all of the other women trying on his jeans like we were Hollywood celebrities. The guy knows how to sell his product.

Needless to say I walked out of Nordstrom's with a new pair of designer jeans (signed by the designer himself) and probably the first pair of jeans I have ever owned that actually fit properly.

Hey SITSta! You commented above me today. Love the designer jeans. They are totally worth the higher price tag. You'll get your money's worth. And he's so right about fit. I always get them a tad on the tight side so that they stretch.

girlytwins said...

First off soo very cool. I myself have a HUGE designer jean obsession LOL. I have so many pairs my hubby jokes that if our house ever caught on fire he would run in and grab my jeans :) But I have never been sized up by a designer. You are a lucky lady. And congrats on your new jeans. Welcome to your new obsession :)

Shellie said...

What luck! It would take the help of a designer to find me a pair of jeans that fit. Love the autograph!

That is too cool, as I sit here with my jeans that did fit perfectly this morning and are now sagging on my butt like I have a diaper on.

ok...that is just too cool. I love that he was there pumping up sales for his jeans...and that he signed them just makes it all the more fun. I bet you are so glad you went upstairs instead of getting a pair of shoes!!!
