So a few months ago I was wearing these jeans and out of nowhere the button popped off. It broke right in half -- there was nothing to be done. It was about two minutes before I ate lunch too, so that wasn't a good sign. If a button breaks off your pants after lunch, that's one thing. But before? Yikes.

I blame a faulty button, not the grilled cheese that was coming my way. My sweet mom sewed a new button on for me so that I could wear them again. Cross your fingers for me at lunch time today, ok?

  1. This post is too funny. I have the same pants, I'll let you know if my button ever becomes faulty so you can feel better about the grilled cheese. :)

  7. Cute outfit girlie. I tried on the same pair of jeans at Target a couple of weeks ago and hated how it looked on me. :( But they're so cute and I love them on you. Love that you styled it with hot pink. Super cute!

    I love those pants with that pink shirt! so cute!

  9. That's the price we pay for buying the Target $19 version and not the $200 pair. I'd say a new button is worth it for the savings. :)

  19. Well to be honest they are kind of a funky fit. They sit so low on my hips, I'm not used to it. But ya know -- $20 jeans. I can't complain much :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Don't you just love it when a button pops up? Really good for the ego.

  26. That is too funny. One day I was at a science museum with my hubby when suddenly TWO buttons, not just one, simultaneously popped off of my blouse out of nowhere. It was bizarre. We had to go to the gift shop and buy a T-shirt because it was a bit too much cleavage to be classy.

  27. LOL I hate when stuff happens to my clothes, on a good note they look like nothing ever happened.

  28. Oh dear!  Well good luck this time around!  I never would have guessed looking at these that the button wasn't the original, either.  Yay for mom to the rescue!

    noticed the new site design - it looks amazing! Love the new banner and

  37. Have the same pants, LOVE them. My co-workers on the other hand think I'm strange and make sill jokes when I wear them. Not my fault they have no fashion sense.

  46. So, did you change your blog's appearance or am I a little crazy? Whether you did or didn't, I like! The simplicity is refreshing and makes it very easy to navigate.

    I love this necklace so much. And the hot pink top with these pants looks killer!

  49. I have the same jeans and I love them but boy were they cheaply made! I wouldn't blame lunch so much as faulty manufacturing

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't quite tell for sure from the photos, but it looks like your mom put in a button instead of a rivet. You probably already know this, but most jeans close with a rivet, which is actually stabbed through the fabric rather than sewn on and so is much sturdier than a button. You can get kits to replace them at a fabric store. I know this because the rivet popped out of one of my pairs of jeans (thrifted, so I'm blaming the previous owner ;-P). Anyway, if the button doesn't hold try replacing it with a rivet. It would be a shame not to be able to wear pants that look so cute on you!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have those same jeans in a different color, but I just can't pull them off like you can! Aren't moms that sew the best? I'm trying to teach myself. I just got my first sewing machine and it took me two hours to thread the damn thing. Slowly but surely. ;)

  52. Those are so flipping cute! Need to get me some cute jeans like that!

  53. I know you didn't know it but you did this post for me. Just yesterday I was going through the belk catalogue and ran across some leopard skinnies similar to these. I said aloud "can a 28 year old wear leopard skinny jeans?" I suppose if Kendi can then I can :). P.s not sure your age but I figure it's some where close to mine.

  54. I have those jeans and wore them to death when I first got them.  It's too hot to wear them now, but I love how you paired them with the pink!

  64. I absolutely love those jeans, but they were absolutely terrible on me. The bottoms of every pair I tried were toothpick thin and I looked like a bloated leopard ice cream cone. Just wasn't meant to be I guess. I live vicariously through you. No pressure.

  88. On the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale I was looking at some similar pants. They looked super fun but I didn't know how I would wear them. So I thought WWKS do? I came to your page and bam you are wearing the pants! It was meant.
