For years I have bought and worn the same cut, style, and size jeans. Old Navy Sweetheart size 2 short. It was wonderful. Anytime I needed new jeans (or they were on sale) I could simply walk into Old Navy, find a pair, pay and walk out. Let's face it. I'm not a shopper anyway, and add two little boys to my trip... well, trying on clothes is way up there on my list of things I seriously don't like to do. So Old Navy made my life much easier.
That is, until the last time I needed new jeans. I was in a real pickle. I'd put off any form of shopping for so long that I was down to one pair of jeans (which I wear all the time). And then they got a hole in the knee. A big hole. Not good. I'm really not a "hole-in-the-knee" kinda girl, you know? So, even though my jeans were not on sale, I was desperate and ran out to pick up a new pair. Easy peasy, right?
Wrong! I got home to discover that my new jeans were HUGE! Seriously, huge. Yes, they were the right shape, style, and size. Believe me, I checked. Repeatedly. And believe me, I have NOT gotten any smaller. On the contrary... So what on earth is going on? Were they from a bad batch? Has Old Navy changed their sizing? Whatever has happened, they've really messed things up for me!
Well, fast forward to just the other day. I got to go shopping all by myself (thanks for boy-watching Bubby and Poppa!), which meant I wasn't quite as averse to trying on clothes as normal. So, since Old Navy was having a sale on jeans (yay!), I headed on over to figure out what on earth was going on with said jeans. The verdict: Old Navy has changed their sizing. I'm sure they'll deny it, but believe me it's true. Those sweetheart jeans I used to love are huge on me. What size bum to they think I have, anyway?
My day wasn't a complete waste, however. I did find jeans that fit.
But I'm no longer a Sweetheart.
Nope, apparently now I'm a Flirt.
