Friday Favorites!

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

I decided to highlight items on Friday that I find I can't live without. Who knows how long this will last, but for now, you can get a sneak peak into my favorite things...which do include ponies, yet not so much apple streudels.


My all time staple item that you can find me in 3-4 days a week--JEANS! I wear them to the office, out with friends, around the house...you name it, I wear them! Right now my favorite brands are Citizens of Humanity and MEK, both of which you can get at Bloomingdales or Nordstrom. I'd like to consider myself a 'jean snob' but that hasn't been the case until recently. I pick my jeans on three things.

1) The color of the denim
2) The pocket design (which correlates directly to the brand)
3) The length/fit and how good it makes my butt look :)


So once a pair of jeans meets all three of these uber strict criteria...they become a winner and well, I purchase more than one pair because I blow through jeans like I do chocolate candy. The only issue ,you see, I have this problem...I have huge tree trunk sized quads, miniature to small size waist and hips and yet midget length legs. That being said, anything I buy, as far as pants go, has to be altered. So finding this perfect jean is critical and very time consuming. Once I find a brand I like, I stick with it. So Citizens of Humanity and MEK numbers and stock just went up...lucky them!
