In November I was contacted by Joe's Jeans to conduct a review for them on my blog. I was so excited! I got to pick out my style from their website and then I had to tell them my size. Should be easy, right? You would think I would know my own size but NO. Let me explain of course how I came up with the wrong size. I am used to purchasing pants that come in sizes such as 0,1,3,5,7,9,11,etc. I am very petite so I do still shop in the juniors section unless I am shopping at Petite Sophisticated. Joe's Jeans come in sizes such as 24,25,26,27,28,29,30. I must have been having a blonde moment when I decided to take out a measuring tape and measure the outside of my pants. I thought it seemed like a good plan, how could I go wrong? Well apparently I didn't know what the heck I was doing and the number I came up with was way off from the number I wear. To tell you the truth I don't even know how I came up with this number. I have been married in the past and my former spouse used to wear about a 32/34 therefore I should have known if the number I got was close to that, then it was wrong, of course keyword there is SHOULD. So needless to say when I received my Joe's Jeans, while jumping for joy, ripped them open to be highly disappointed I couldn't wear them. They were five sizes too big. Yes, FIVE. I know, what kind of idiot measures five sizes larger? The company has been so gracious to let me send the jeans back and exchange for the right size. They found a way to dumby proof my sizing guess by sending me to Nordstrom's to try some on. Now my jeans are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday and again I am super excited! I can't wait to conduct my full review, although I know I'll love them, the denim was so soft. I also plan to sport my new jeans at BlissDom!
