This weekend I went shopping with a friend to find her the perfect dress for a night out in NYC you know: drinks, dinner at Mesa Grill, dancing after... the whole nine. We went from store to store unable to find anything that would suit the bill when really we should have just hit up one of our favorite places to shop, Nordstrom Rack, in the first place.
While she found a bunch of awesome and budget dress possibilities I wandered around looking for something for myself and came across a whole bunch of racks with trouser jeans!! I know, I couldn't believe it either. While the brand (Not Your Daughter's Jeans) was not what I had originally envisioned they are a great wash, decent fit (although a higher rise than I'm used to) and almost $70.00 off the original retail!!! How could I turn that down especially when my boyfriend was footing the bill?
If you are searching for trouser jeans and are not near the Nordstrom Rack in White Plains (where there are still tons of awesome jeans) like I was you can check out an alternative that I was seriously considering but, had not a chance to try on. These Trouser Dark Wash Jeans from Banana Republic are also a good fit but, unfortunately carry a hefty price tag. I'm glad I was able to avoid it this time but, since it's what I wanted I probably would have paid it... they are spot on.
