Cute butt jeans

I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for cute jeans. Especially the cute, trendy ones, that cost way more than they're worth. But, I'm also frugal (read: cheap), thus I refuse to pay full price. In fact, its rare that I'll actually pay more than $40 for a pair of jeans. I'm pretty good at scoring a bargain. In fact, I recently found a pair of $240 Diesel jeans for only $35. That was a total score.

But, I've recently lost 12 pounds. And to celebrate, I've really been wanting some button pocket jeans. Unfortunately, the bargain hunt has been fruitless. Then, the other day, while browsing the sale items on Buckle.com, I came across the perfect jeans. They were on sale - $85 marked down from $120. Before I could even stop myself, I pulled out the debit card and they were mine.

They came just a few days later. And they are cute:

Really cute.

They look great on too (I tried to figure out how to take a picture of my own derriere, to no avail. You'll have to use your imagination) I love those stinkin' jeans - most especially because they're a size smaller than the last I bought. Score!!

Of course, hubby wasn't thrilled with my purchase. But, dang it, I make good money, and if I want to indulge in something occasionally that makes me feel good about myself, than I should be able to. Right?

One problem though: those cute buttons have an evil side.

They rip my car seat. Notice too that it has been ripped on 3 separate occasions.

ooo not good! As I was looking at the picture of them I just thinking they would tear up my brand new couches. That is exactly what they did to your car. Ugh. They are cute though and I bet you look awesome in them! Congrats on the weight loss too!

I love lucky jeans, and most clothes from the buckle. I bet they look great on. Way to go loosing 12 lbs. I love it when I can buy a size smaller jeans! Sorry about the car seats though.

Arg! Leather seats, that stinks; the price we pay for fashion. I love Buckle.com and have found some major scores there too! Viva la cute jeans!

Nice work on ditching those 12 lbs. Maybe your hubby just needed to see your cute butt in them and he would forget how much they were, or at least realize they were worth it to get a view like that.

First of all, good for you for indulging! You DO deserve it!

Secondly, congrats on your weight loss. Losing that much weight is hard, but it looks so good on you!

Thirdly, I did that to my husband's car with a pair of jeans that has copper rivets on the butt. One was bent. He was NOT happy. And those jeans don't even look that good on my butt. Woops. Sorry about yours. Are you still going to wear them?
