An Accidental Purchase of Mom Jeans

An Accidental Purchase of Mom Jeans

I've been trying to find a new pair of jeans for awhile now. It's been frustrating, time-sucking and rather expensive. I am glad I read this post by Carrie Elle, however, as I was almost tempted this past weekend to pick up a pair of jeans at our local big-box membership store. Apparently they house the infamous Mom Jeans! Buyer beware!

But first, have a laugh with Carrie as she shares her Mom Jean experience.

I did a bad, bad thing.

I wore mom jeans. All day long. With little to no shame (depending on where I was).

It was unintentional. I didn’t know they were mom jeans when I bought them. I mean, I technically should have know that $13 Gloria Vanderbilt jeans from Costco probably weren’t going to be the hippest of denim, but they had me at $13.
