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?).

    I really love Lucky Brand. I used to go there so often, I’m not sure why I stopped! I have one in my downtown shopping center, and they are always so nice and helpful. Plus the jeans, well, are just amazing! I really like the color and looser fit of the ones you’re wearing here. The way you styled them is stunning—dressy/casual, my favorite! Great look 🙂 xo

    Yes!! Love this look lady + you are killing it in those jeans!

    We need to catch up + I hope you can make it to our launch party next week!!

    That tux vest is fantastic, even better that you get to wear it with only a tank underneath..we sure are lucky here in CA! By the way, I’ve never owned a pair of Lucky denim…ha, I think I’ve been in the store all of two times. Might need to give them another try.

    I love Lucky! Especially with their jeans and jewelry. So many fun and unique pieces! Love your leopard, as well. 🙂

    Always, Anita

    We used to have a Lucky store in Cincinnati, but it closed. I always loved going in there! It was so different than everything else you saw. I love the wash of these jeans, and they fit you like a glove. Work it, sister!
