AG Jeans sale on Gilt Groupe = SCORE!!!


I FINALLY got a pair of jeans at a Private Sale!!!  I cannot EFFIN' believe my luck! AND... it was on the sale I MOST wanted to get the jeans at...  the AG Adriano Goldschmied Jeans sale!!!  I got a pair of the New Legend Jeans for $68 plus shipping, which was one heck of a steal!  They are a beautiful dark wash in a size 28 with a 33" inseam.  I am totally in LOVE with them and cannot wait til they get here so I can wear them with a great pair of heels for the holidays.

I guess the moral of this whole blog here is that I was totally about ready to give up.  I was scared to buy at those sales because of my changing body type.  I mean, granted, I can still wear the same size jeans, but right now, I do know my body has done some changing due to going into early menopause.  However, I guess you just have to know what is going to fit your body type and what is not.  Don't be unrealistic about your figure and measurements and you should have no problems shopping at the Private Sales, outlets, online boutiques, online stores, eBay, etc.   Size is just a number on a tag and it does not determine your self worth.  It's taken me years to see this.  Heck, sometimes, I still have issues with this one, but I'm getting better about it all the time.  Shop for what fits you best, not for what the number inside the clothing says.  That will also help you on these Private Sales because designer labels definitely DO tend to run small.  Many people don't realize that and I was one them who didn't know that for a long time.  Just a piece of helpful advice for y'all.

I hope those of you who shop these sites have good luck and happy experiences soon~  For those interested in checking them out, send me a comment and I'll be glad to hook you up with an invitation to join (since these are invitation-only websites).  You won't regret shopping at Private Sales because you can save up to 80% off of normal retail price. 

More soon!
