White Skinnies

April was my Birthday month and with it came lots of Birthday coupons from places like The Limited, Express, Macy's, Victoria's Secret, DSW and Anthropology.  Pretty much all my favorite stores.  Along with the Birthday and shopping coupons galore came a sense of entitlement which caused me to spend money.  I tell myself, it's my Birthday, I deserve it.  So yeah, I've been doing a lot of shopping this month...and if I'm being honest it's kinda been more like all year so far.   It's like a disease or temporary insanity.  To my credit I did not use the Anthropology or Victoria's Secret coupon.  I can't and shouldn't use them all but I did quite a bit of damage.   I did the math and I'm a little embarrassed to admit it but I've spent about $650 bucks so far this year but if I didn't have it to spend then I wouldn't have because I don't do credit card debt.  These stores know what they are doing.  What a sucker I am.

One coupon in particular from Macy's had me interested.  $10 off anything...even the designer brands you love.  It's been a while since I bought a pair of designer jeans and I have been wanting a pair of white skinny jeans so I marched over to Impulse "just to look."  Famous last words.  The Joe's Jeans skinnies are $169 freaking dollars.  Why on earth does a pair of jeans have to be so expensive and why on earth would I even consider spending that kind of hard earned money on it?  Because when you put them on they mold to your figure like a glove and look awesome.  That's why.  I also gave Jessica Simpson's white skinnies a chance.  They were $54 but it just wasn't the same.   I shoulda never tried on the Joe's but I did and therefore could not walk out of Macy's without them.  You see, I was MEANT to have them.

A measly $10.00 off is a drop in the bucket but it was better then nothing.  As the saleslady rang up my jeans she says you would probably do much better off with the friends and family 25% off coupon.  A 25% off coupon that can be used on designer duds?  She scans it and the price goes down by $42 and I the jeans only cost $136 with tax.  It's still mind blowing to me that I might say the word ONLY in reference to spending over $100 bucks on a pair of jeans but there it is.  I've spent up to $150 before.  I only spent $18.99 on the tan skinny jeans I bought the month before so I guess it averages out.  That's what I'm telling myself anyways.  I've officially lost my mind but these jeans last forever, look great and they are worth it.  I'm worth it right?  Like I said, I was MEANT to have them.

What is the most you will spend or have spent on a pair of jeans?

A good pair of jeans is worth every single penny! When you can get it for a discount it's even better. But seriously, I've got jeans that I've paid $40 or $50 that fall apart after a few washes, don't feel right and don't fit right, but then I've got jeans that were a bit more then that that I've worn for YEARS and loved every second!

Jeans are well worth the price, now I've never spent that much on a pair of years I've topped out at around $70.00 or so but well worth it. Nothing like a good fitting pair of jeans. It's your birthday you deserve to splurge on yourself:)

I think jeans are an investment. That being said I've never spent more than $75 on a pair? Once I get to my goal weight I am going to splurge on a pair of designer jeans. Luckily Nordstrom Rack is nearby and always has amazing prices!

If it makes you feel any better, I think I swear my white skinny jeans more than any jeans in my closet! I love them.

The most I've spent on jeans...I think it was probably about $200 on a pair of Rock & Republic. I still regret it...

I found that Juicy has the best jeans for my bizarre shape and when they go on sale? Amazing deal.

I don't think I would be able to pull off white skinnies and I'm pretty sure the most I ever spent on jeans was $50 and probably the reason they don't last.

I haven't purchased jeans in forever but less than $100!! Yours look really nice though!

I don't believe I've ever spent more than $40 on jeans. I use coupons or go to discount stores like Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshall's. I do have jeans that cost $80 or more, but they were gifts either from my husband or my dad.

The most I have ever spent was $35 for a pair of jeans from Target. They were amazing. I love the white skinnies. Hope you enjoy them!

Those are super cute! Hey, if you love them and they fit perfectly, they're definitely worth the splurge! I find that when I settle for something else that is cheaper but that I don't love, I never end up wearing it.
