what i want today: cheap denim!

nearly all of the post-holiday sales are in full swing now (check out the goodies at active endeavors and at shopbop, to name just a few. ooh, and remember that you can use code cardio to take 20% off anything that's still full-price at active endeavors!), and i can't possibly lead you through them all.

but i will let you in on a fabulous deal on some denim over at banana republic, of all places. i picked up these trouser jeans a while back, and i have to say that if you can completely ignore the fit on the model (which is frightening, i realize) and trust me, i think you'll love them. i'd stack them up against any of my premium denim for both fit and wash. i opted for the tall size, which gave me a nice 34" inseam (the website says 36", but it just can't be right), which i can easily cuff for flats or leave long for heels. they just got marked down to $59, and you can take an extra 20% off through 12/24 with code brholiday, meaning you can score a really well-cut pair of jeans for under $50. in my book, that's about as good as life gets. in fact, i'm thinking i might need a back-up pair...

ooh, one last tip: i am almost always a size smaller in banana republic jeans than i am in anything else they carry. so, size down...or order one of each & return the one that doesn't fit, which is what i'd do.
