Lucky You

At some point in my college years, I had a short-lived job at Buckle where I sold Lucky Brand jeans to help pay for a new wardrobe school. Between my boot-cut jeans from Buckle and my flirty skirts, camis and hoodies acquired during another short-lived retail job (Abercrombie), I had an outfit for every occasion. It wasn’t a huge wardrobe, but I worked it.

My disposable income may have been lacking (Hashtag, starving student), but wearing curve-hugging, low-rise denim that elicited a smile each time I saw “Lucky You” stitched on the fly was the kind of thing that made me forget I was broke. (Later, I learned Lucky Brand was founded in the 70’s by two young men – 17 and 21-years-old – which makes the attention to detail on the fly make more sense to me.)

Recently I popped in to a Lucky Brand store in Palo Alto. The gals took such good care of me and I fell in love with these grey skinny jeans after trying on several fitted boyfriend/relaxed skinny jeans that did not do my body any favors (When it comes to jeans, I guess I have a type?).
