I couldn't find either Joe's or Sevens, so those go on my list for the next time I'm in the US. I did find the "Not your daughter's jeans," though, and got a pair of black straight-legs. OMG they are comfortable, and I'm getting used to the "mom" rise. I am super-happy because apparently I wear a 6 in them! My Lucky's were 10s, and even one 12.
I got another pair of Lucky's, too, because I am weak. I'm down to an 8!
I feel so much bigger and gooshier than I was pp, but apparently I am smaller. Weird.
Anyway, I am happy! Thanks, all!
