Okay so I'm new to posting but I've been checking out the board for a while and have really learned a lot. I am in a state of crisis right now and I was hoping for some advice. So I'm a little newer to fashion a.k.a. actually thinking about what I wear and I've not progressed very far I'm getting there slowly but surely. One of the first lessons I learned is that buying expensive jeans is not a waste of money. They actually last longer than 4 months and they real denim is actually incredibly comfortable to wear. I wear Lucky right now, and I know they are not considered the best and are a little overpriced, but they fit me really well for some reason. I've tried on more expensive ones at Nordstrom's and Lucky just work for me right now. Though I am looking for a brand to eventually replace them. Anyway, I just got some Lucky's in the mail and I'm pretty sure I hate them. My last pair was exactly like this and I bought them 9 months ago. I let it slide the first time because in the past Lucky jeans weren't like this but I guess this is how they are "pre-distressing" all their jeans now because I just bought another pair and they have this horrible stripe still like my last pair.. I actually looked in the catalog and this seems to be how they want them to look because the models have this fade on their jeans as well. (I bought these through the official website.) What am I referring to? This apparent "racing stripe" I have going down the side of my legs. It's looks really bad in my opinion but I'm also a naturally self-conscious person and I over react to things. I mean tell me if you think this looks horrible or not. Here are some pictures. Yes I am standing on my bed in one of them I don't know it seemed like a good place to take a picture ha. Some of the pictures may seem a bit to close, like maybe from a distance the stripe may not seem so dramatic, but that's about as far away from my body I could hold my camera basically. As you can see you really can't tell from just looking at the front as in the first three pictures. But once you flatten them on their side it becomes obvious. And then when you actually put them on...yeah. It becomes obvious and my main issue is it just doesn't look believable why would jeans naturally wear like that? Tell me if I'm crazy. Again my past Lucky's haven't had this wonderful feature. But my last pair I bought 9 months ago did and I just got a new pair and here they are...with the racing stripe.
