My jeans collection is a constant source of contention between my husband and me. About once a week, he’ll gaze at the mountain of jeans folded on the closet shelves, shake his head, and ask me, “Do you really need all of those jeans?” “OF COURSE I NEED ALL OF THEM! What am I supposed to do? Wear my boots over these wide-legged jeans? Do you expect me to wear these light denim jeans in the winter? And what about these skinny jeans? How am I going to fit into them when I’m bloated? Hey! Where are you going? Get back here! I haven’t even gotten around to the issue of high-waisted versus low-waisted.” Well, it looks like he’s gone. Good. Now, I can tell you the truth: I don’t really need ALL of my pairs of jeans. I do have two identical pairs of Seven jeans, but I couldn’t help it: I bought the second pair because they were only $40 at T.J.Maxx. Forty bucks for Sevens! You can’t pass that up. And I do have a pair of Gap jeans from the ’90s that I will probably never wear again, but they are my weight control jeans: when they fit, I’m good, but when they’re snug, it means I have to lay off the Haagen-Dazs for a week or so.
