I suffer from a condition called thighrubitis. This condition’s symptoms are the rubbing of thighs so much that you literally walk a hole into your pants, which basically means if you are a frequent wearer of a particular pair or 2 of pants then you’ve got thin fabric on your crotch area or even a hole…ay dios mios! So how do you deal with a condition such as this when you are living the Fashion Under 20 lifestyle?
Let’s focus on jeans, shall we? As much as I love getting dolled up, I absolutely love wearing a pair of jeans. However, my thighrubitis makes it where I can rub a hole into a pair of jeans at or around the 6 – 12 months mark. Although I have quite a few jeans in stock, there are a few that I fall in love with and tend to wear A LOT. One particular pair was my Gap 1969 Real Straight jeans. Oh how I loved wearing those jeans, but after 6 months I was back to the Gap spending $60-70 for a new pair…OY! So when I began practicing my Fashion Under 20 lifestyle I happened upon an article by a fellow blogger, Patrice (Looking Fly on a Dime), about her favorite pair of jeans. Little did I know that skinny people also suffered from thighrubitis, but that is neither here nor there, anywho I was very surprised to find out she absolutely loved her Forever 21 black skinny jeans.
It took me a while to make it to Forever 21 but I finally went. Can you believe that I purchased 2 pairs of jeans for $30? They had great jeans for $14.80! Various washes and cuts…SCORE!!! I purchased gray skinnys and a dark wash. They’ve been worn dressy and casual. I’ve had my jeans for almost a year & have no thinning in the crotch or holes…YEAH BUDDY!!!
Crazy to think that for years I have been spending all that money on jeans when I could have gone to Forever 21 and purchased a few pairs for the price of one. Lessoned learned!
Alright, now it’s your turn! It’s up to you to find a great pair or 2 of jeans for $20 or less. A pair of jeans that will not succumb to thighrubitis. When you find those jeans, be sure to share it with your FU20 family!
‘Til next time,
