Totally Ripped in Reid

While many celebrities will be waltzing gracefully down the red carpet in designer frocks tonight, I am going for a more relaxed, casual and decidedly less polished look today. While I love shopping for clothes, finding jeans I like is always a bit of a chore. In college I was a Seven and Diesel fan. When I started working I actually found I wasn't wearing jeans that much so I gravitated towards cheap options like Old Navy. In the last year or so, the J. Crew Reid jeans have become one of my favorites. I have two pair and the one I'm wearing today is apparently extra special; it's the Reid Cone denim jean in Macaye wash and apparently it's made of White Oak denim from Cone. I have no idea what Cone even is! Is Cone a person, manufacture or place? And are my jeans made from a tree and if so why?

Even if this pair is made from some sort of fancy denim, as I predicted my husband "ripped" them apart. I knew he would hate the holes and patches. "Are those new?" he inquired when I came home. When I confirmed that indeed they were, he responded, "Usually I throw away my jeans once they get tears and holes in them." Since I got these on clearance for about $35, however, I think I can live with the tears and holes!
