Denim Delight. "Can I Get an Amen?"
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

When HolySister was here we went to a great little store that New Friend told me about. It is ridiculously expensive, but as New Friend correctly pointed out - they have GREAT sales. Like, 90% off sales. Woo Hoo! 

HolySister and I discovered David Kahn jeans in that store. They. Are. The. Best. They've been rumored to take 10 pounds off immediately, and we believe it. We kept trying to look at our butts in the mirror and saying stuff like, "Do you see THAT?" and "Oh my gosh - it hasn't looked like THAT in years!"

Also, plenty of whispered booty compliments for one another, because frankly - in those jeans, in those moments, in that dressing room... they were totally deserved. The saleslady said, "Now those other designer jeans are made to fit juniors. THESE are for WOMEN." She gave us a meaningful nod, and we returned it.

We have our limits, though, and those jeans were waaay over that limit. I just couldn't imagine spending $200 on a pair of jeans, no matter what my backside looked like in them. 'Sorta shallow,' sure, but not 'sorta nuts.' HolySister felt the same, so we left the store with some bargains, but not the David Kahns.

Last week I found a pair on eBay for about $75. I bid, I bought, I LOVE them, and am even ok with the price. But since then, I found a PAIR FOR $15!!! Oh yes I really did. The same booty-licious jeans that were $200 in a store here, were miraculously $15 on ebay. (No, not 'fakes')

And... the Hallelujah Moment. Fifteen dollars for this particular designer clothing item is a blessing that must be reported, adored, celebrated. Spotting these jeans on ebay at that price...? Exactly like seeing a stunning sunset or sunrise. How can you behold such beauty and not recognize God's hand in it? Impossible.

And if you care to investigate DKs for yourself, which of course you may not, I'd go for the Lauren fit. The Nikki is a lower rise and was too low for me, but worked great for HolySister. I'm a Lauren fan. And a Lauren fan. Which is totally different, and does nothing for my backside, but that's ok.

Laughing out loud about how being a Lauren fan does nothing for your backside. And I'm cheering about your bargain all the way from Alabama, because a $15 pair of designer jeans? Blessing. :-)

Lauren Said:

I need to try these jeans on - 10 lbs you say? What stores carry them?

Oh and nobody informed me that I was supposed to be doing something for your backside. I'll add it to my to do list. Can't promise when but I will get to it.

$15!?!? Now THAT is bragging rights, gal. I bow to you and your pound-reducing designer jeans! (Even I am really bowing just to see if your butt really looks that good in them!) LOL.

Big Mama Said:

Jeans that make your booty look good for $15.00? Very few experiences in life are that good! I'm going to check them out.

Kristina Said:

$15? That's all I can afford no matter what kind of jeans they are.......I'll have to check that out.

Being that I work for a jeans company and I know that it costs NOWHERE near 200 dollars to make a pair of jeans, I understand why you wouldn't pay that, but I love finding a good pair of jeans. I may have to see if I can find a cheap pair of these myself!

corina Said:

LOL-- finally able to check out your blog......and what does my little heart see? But jeans that can take 10 lbs off of me!
Ebay here I come!

Shalee Said:

I don't care how good you look in those jeans. I am not checking out your butt, unless of course you sat in something and then I would admit to looking at your booty, but I would have been drawn to it due to the stuckage, and the stuckage only. Not because you would make me envious of the aforementioned 10 lbs lighter backside. Other than that, I say YOU GO GIRL! And watch where you sit.

emily Said:

yeah, i've so got to look into this.

any woman can appreciate a GOOD pair of jeans.

i can't appreciate it 200 dollars worth, though. ;)

Kristen Said:

Now, THAT is a deal! I think I'm gonna have to check 'em out!

jeana Said:

Hmm. If one pair takes off 10 pounds I'll bet those two pair together really do the work.

Maybe you should buy up some and sell them from your blog!!!

Yep, gonna have to find them too.
Just recently heard of *Tummy Tuck* jeans ... after 4 kids, I am thinking that these might be the ticket for this mama!

Janice Said:

Ok - I want those jeans - but not at 200!! How on earth did you find them for $15!?!? That is a miracle!

Rejoicing with you!!!

I saw a couple of pairs of David Kahn jeans at a consignment shop here a few months ago, but they wanted I think around $75 and that wouldn't even tempt me to the fitting room. Now I kinda wish I would've at least given them a look.

I have seen, in my short time on eBay, that there are some really good bargains to be had, stuff that is very well priced (like your $15 jeans) that just never gets any bids. But I also had an offer to buy rip-off, pirate jeans and sell them. How did you know you were buying the real thing?

And, you don't need to reveal your size here, but can you tell us if you wore your usual size in the David Kahn's?

Stacey Said:

I hate trying on jeans! I'll have to see what these are all about but for the $15 price not $200!

HolyMama! Said:

ah hah! yes, rebecca. my cousin emailed me the same question. the dk's i bought were 29s, which is equivalent to a 6, but they're just a tad too loose. That's in keeping with the jeans i wear in other brands. the 6s are fine for 20 inutes, then so loose i'm thinking of 4s. but when it says '28' or '29' remember that is NOT the measurement of the waist 'opening' since they sit lower than that. did that make sense...?

HolyMama! Said:

oh, knowing if you're getting the real deal? it's all about the feedback, the pictures, the description, etc. even with doing all of that you can still get ripped off (i never have), but there are ways and procedures to get your money back if it comes to that.

Rebecca Said:

Just in case anybody is still tuned in here, I just returned from the Nordstrom Rack where I saw a pair of David Kahn jeans, of the Nikki variety, in a light color, for $45. Unfortunately they were 27s. It didn't seem worth getting undressed just to struggle into them.

I admit, though, I was curious ...
