I need some suggestions for where to go for jeans. I haven't bought many new pairs in a longgggg time and I want to get 2-3 pairs before I leave for college. My parents will probably give me some money towards them, because they usually give me money when I tell them I *need* some sort of clothing item. However, my dad is the one that gives me the money and he's the guy that buys $15 jeans at Target once every 10 years, so when I tell him I need money for jeans, he probably won't give me very much unless my mom reminds him this isn't 1970 anymore. And I need to be saving my own money. So I really can't afford $100 Lucky jeans or anything like that.
So I was looking for suggestions from people for good jeans that are in the $40-$60 range. I have jeans that I loooove from Hollister that are in that range but I feel like now that I'm going to college, I don't want to look like a teenie in Hollister garb 24/7 anymore I have Abercrombie jeans that I love but both pairs were about $80 so unless they're on sale or my dad feels generous, I probably wouldn't spring for those.
All my friends love American Eagle jeans but I just don't... I'm 5'2" or 5'3" but their "short" sizes are a little too short and their regular sizes are way too long.
I also have one pair from Forever21 that are okay, but they were only like $20 and from afar they actually look really nice and legitimate, but they're really so cheap and I feel like they're not even made out of real jean material
Thanks for any ideas
