Even though I said I didn’t have time to shop at Macy’s for a pair of Levi’s, I found some time to squeeze in this week to go into the mall (the mall! I know!) to check out the rest of the Levi’s available. Normally, I don’t “mall shop” because of my job and seeing students all day means that during my off hours I tend to avoid places where I see nothing but junior high kids.
Guess where they all hang out? THE MALL.
Still, I took my girlfriend Sara shopping with me to check out the displays and see what Levi’s has been up to since I hadn’t shopped in person for quite some time. Sara is a teacher and we both wanted to find a new pair of jeans for Friday Jean Day at school where we try to dress it up to still look professional while wearing jeans.
“Why Levi’s? What’s the big deal about Levi’s? It’s not like they have to make a comeback. They’ve been around forever.” she said.
That was a good question and we ended up talking about how we both wore mostly Levi’s in high school. The brand itself was the Go To brand for your functional pair of jeans. Of course, my older sister had a pair os something like Sassoon or Gloria Vanderbilt (remember those?) that she never let me borrow, but my trusty Levi’s never let me down.
Of course, we talked about everything Levi’s after that and ended up trying on about 10 different pairs of Levi’s each just to see if they had changed. The answer is: no. Levi’s hasn’t changed in that they just make a really good jean. What had changed were our bodies. I stuck with everything Curve ID and then moved onto the colored jeans because those are everywhere right now. The red pair are actually more of a burnt red they call “paprika” and while I kind of wanted a red pair I ended up getting the turquoise because they will match more of the clothes in my closet.
If you haven’t taken the Curve ID Fit Finder quiz, you can do that here.
