Custom Jeans & New White/Grey Pearls

While out to lunch with a few friends, I just had to show off my newly made white and grey pearl necklace. It's about 48 inches long so I can wear it super long or double up into 2 shorter strands. For my casual luncheon, I actually doubled up the pearl necklace and wore it with a ribbon tied in the back so the look became 4 strands from the front. I love to play around with different looks.

Anyway, over lunch I wanted gal pals' opinions on custom jeans. Savvy Sis told me she just put in an order for custom jeans. Basically the manufacturer will take her measurements to make a pattern exclusively for her. From there, she can order jeans in the fabric, color and silhouette of choice. I think it's a cool idea because jeans never really fit me exactly. I can find a great pair of jeans but there is always something a little off about it but if I can get about 90% satisfaction, I am pretty happy. But now, if I can get 100% fit (provide I don't gain/lose weight) then the idea definitely has merit. However, the cost will be about $380. What do you think? I figure if I am already paying $200+ for jeans then why not give this a chance.

  6. Your pearls are absolutely lovely!

    Custom jeans sound pricey but if you have trouble finding jeans that fit properly, they could be worth the $$~

  11. jeans never fit me exactly right, so, like you, i settle for a 90% success in the fit department.

    and i just love that necklace. maybe you can start selling them if it is of interest?

  12. If you get a 90% fit with a pair of jeans, alter them to get 100%. Then, voila, custom jeans. That's what I do.
