As a blogger and a stylist, I get questions all the time about where to shop for specific items. By a landslide, the number one item I'm asked about is jeans. Jeans are like bathing suits in that they're a pain in the A to shop for and best tried on in bulk. We go "jeans shopping," meaning we need to try on lots of options before we're sure we've found the pair that gives us thigh gap and lifts our rear ends. Hey, just speaking the truth here!
Online shopping makes buying clothes and other goods so convenient in many ways buuuut it's not always the best option when you're on the hunt for flattering denim. So for anyone in my neck of the woods, here is the lowdown on where to buy designer denim in Asheville.
