Why Wait Until Friday?

I am, admittedly, a jean snob. I am a pretty strong Hudson devotee and can justify the $180 a pair price tag with the fact that I wear jeans almost every day. However, lately I’ve been noticing that designer jeans are creeping well into the $200- $225 range and well, that just seems silly to me. Last weekend I waltzed into the Gap and while perusing the denim I noticed changes- the fits seemed refined, the washes richer and the details more interesting. Come to find out, via a style savvy friend who bought three pairs, that the design department has done an overhaul of the whole 1969 denim line and pricing it all under $70! I am going to be trying on those button ankle numbers for sure!

And while there I also noticed this buttery leather foldover messenger bag. The messenger bag is going to be BIG this fall, I will guarantee it, and at $158, it’s not bad on the wallet that goes inside it! As much as I love summer, I have to admit I’m getting pretty excited for cozy sweaters, leather bags and boots!
