Stacy and Clinton would not approve…

I can splain Lucy!  =)

I am in the land of comfort heaven!

a weird sort of bliss has taken over my soul!!

you see

Back in high school… in the late 80’s… these are what I lived in…

BOYS… Mens… Levis 501 jeans…

**thump, thump, thump**

do you hear my heart beating??

I’m just sayin… Stacy and Clinton would not approve…

of me in those boy pants…

but I don’t care!

I don’t see them offering me a credit card

so I can wear what I want, right?

You see… This chick…

and I went shopping…

b/c that is what I do when my Canadian friends  come to visit…

(its true)     First we buy cheese… then we shop for clothes… in that order  =)

its ok…I didn’t mind… I was in desperate need of some new clothes…

(I don’t want to talk about it… I’m just sayin… it was time!)

So….After buying an insane amount of butter

and Tillamook Cheese… (I heart Tillamook Cheese!)

what can I say… My friend…she is a smart woman… Tillamook Cheese is the BEST… and it is less dollars than the cheese you can buy in BC…. She  bought cheese for her mom & sisters too.. It really is VERY funny to purchase 12 two pound blocks of cheese and 12 lbs. of butter all at once!  =)

ok… moving on…

After trying on an insane amount of clothing… all I came home with was 5 pairs of jeans…. 2 jean shorts, 2 jean capri pants and 1 pair of BUTTON Fly Levis 501 blue jeans… be still my heart!  I might not even wear the others… even though they are all Levis… I might have to live in my 501’s this summer… just because my tooshie has not been so cozy since I can’t remember when… and I love ripping those button flys open the way they do… it is a sickness… If I drink more water…. =)

You would have giggled or laughed so hard you peed  (or called the nerd police)  at that moment when you saw me find those in the store!!   I am sure I acted like a 2 year old in a candy store!  I was thrilled to find my size… and nope… I am not sharing the size of my tooshie with y’all

and since all I own are solid colored t-shirts…

the classic 501’s will be fashionable with them… right!?!


OK… I am done …

but… I can’t help it…I am so IN LOVE … I love love my 501’s!

boys… button fly… blue jeans…




I might even sleep in them.


(dang I wish it wasn’t so hot outside!)  =)


I really am done now.

    You are so funny! You are right, Stacy & Clinton would not approve. They also would not approve of my wearing mostly juniors clothing! Oh well.
    Enjoy them!

    I love Old Navy jeans now, but I used to always buy boys. Love ’em low and long!!

  • 3 He & Me + 3 yazmış:

    I love button flies too. I have two pairs and in the winter time…they are my favs. I don’t own levis though. Gap is the brand that makes my bum comfy. I will have to try these though. Enjoy your jeans:)

    I have a pair of jeans that have that front, but are some other brand. A friend gave them to me, along with other name brand jeans, and these ones are probably 2 sizes too big for me and they’re my absolute FAVORITE. Stacy and Clinton would probably not approve of mine either…. 😉

    I am too much of a fatty to wear button fly jeans but I have the same love for an old Tori Amos t-shirt that Stacie and CLinton would dump in the trash in a new york minute!

  • 6 naomig yazmış:

    I usually wait till I have to pee to badly to be coordinated enough to get the buttons open. So, then I’m dancing and trying to unbutton buttons that don’t cooperate, and it’s not pretty. So I can’t wear button flys. You should just be glad you found some denims that you love. I have a great pair of Fossils my sister bought me… all my jeans are hand me downs from my other sister… I’m thankful they’re rich enough to spend good money on denims. 🙂

    Ooh, 501’s are sooooooo comfy. Now I might have to go buy a pair, too.

  • 9 Lindsay yazmış:

    Sounds like you had a great shopping trip. Enjoy your jeans.

  • 10 liz yazmış:

    I got a good chuckle out of “first we buy cheese and then we buy clothes!” I have fallen for Levi’s as well, but mine aren’t button fly 501s.

  • 11 Lori@ Teacher Turned Mommy yazmış:

    too funny… who cares what stacy and clinton would think if you are happy… and if your family has an issue with it then I guess they could call what not to wear

  • 12 Alicia yazmış:

    I remember that in high school too!! Everyone had the 501 jeans!

  • 13 blueviolet yazmış:

    I grew up wearing men’s levi’s too! It was red tag or nothing!

  • 14 Jen Gacek yazmış:

    They still make those? i totally remember those…i had a pair…or 2 or 3…

    Better than raggy sweats I suppose 😉

  • 15 Heather yazmış:

    you crack me up! love that you guys shop for cheese and clothes. that sounds like the best shopping trip ever!

  • 16 Stacey yazmış:

    This Stacey approves! I love Levi’s! Thats what I grew up wearing, and I have never found jeans to fit me better.

  • 17 A Cupcake for Moose yazmış:

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower! It really made my day. I love meeting new blog friends. 🙂

    Cheese and boy’s Levi’s sound like perfect combination to me! Sounds like you an your Canadian friend had a blast!!

    Have a great day!

    Oh the memory of ripping apart those buttons. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I’m thinking we must be about the same age!

  • 19 Pennie yazmış:

    Congrats on finding your jeans! And as for sizes…I always thought if I owned a jean manufacturer, I would size my jeans 2 sizes smaller than they really WERE, so if you were a size 16, you would naturally purchase MY BRAND of jeans…in a size 12…because then you could tell everyone you were a size 12!!!! Everyone would be wearing PENNIE JEANS!!!! Aren’t I a genius??? I could do it, you know…if I knew how to start a company…and how to design clothes…and had any MONEY to start a company. Oh, yeah…there’s that…

    Come to Wisconsin and we’ll buy us some CHEESE, Sistah – the dairy state has some primo cheese!
