Got me in Stitches

So I went jean shopping the other day looking for the perfect skinny pair in either light demin or gray wash. For some reason I cannot find gray in anything other than bootcut, and the light wash I found were not long enough. If you cannot imagine my frustration let me tell you... I've tried on pair after pair and gone in store after store only to walk out empty handed. Finally I walked into a boutique that sells only designer jeans, you know, Rock and Republic, 7 for All Mankind, True Religion - you get the point. Most of these designers do not make a gray or light wash in the skinny, but the helpful sales attendant showed me a pair by Stitches. I'd never even heard of this designer, but wanted to try anything that was close to what I was looking for. Once she threw them to me over the dressing room door, I happened to take a look at the price tag - $253!!! After gasping and throwing up a little in my mouth, I asked (in my head of course) "who is this designer anyway"! Well I tried them on and what do you know, they fit perfectly and they are the exact color I have been looking for....

If you tell me you bought a pair of $250 jeans I am getting in my car and driving up there and strangling you with said pants. That is so outrageous! And the style can't last forever. Us hip-y girls can't even consider wearing them.

I swear every day a new jeans brand come out and they're just more expensive than the last. Too many options at this point!
